"New year, new you" remains one of the go-to mantras every January 1st, so why not express that through what you wear? Shifting trends and fads characterize each new year, and the importance of fashion, in terms of individuality, never goes unnoticed. Because of this, I have decided to highlight ten fashion trends that have defied the change of time:

1. Graphic Tees


While the logos printed on graphic tees may change over the years, the popularity of the shirts themselves never will. Since the 80s, this wardrobe staple has been adding instant character to any outfit. It's no wonder, given the ease and comfortability that graphic tees bring, that this trend has stuck around for so long.



2. High Waists

From shorts to skirts, and even dress pants, the high waists that originated in the 1950s have gained a serious following in the 21st century. Although hip-huggers and bell bottoms have also made comebacks within the past few years, high-waisted jeans seem to be the trend that never disappoints or fades.

3. Tall Socks

This trend, famous during the 90s, resurfaces today in the form of the sneaker/dress combo. High socks allow any outfit to be ten times more casual. Instead of no-show socks slipping off your heels during the day, socks above your ankles not only add flair but a lot fewer blisters.

4. Mixed Prints

While some fashionistas may still be wary of this trend, it's back in full force! Whether mixing cheetah print with floral or stripes with plaid, this 70s fad gains momentum during a time when risky fashion choices reign. It not only spices up any ensemble but allows you to have less boring neutrals in your closet.

5. Wide Frames

Forget about framing your face with bangs, layers, or contour, and frame your face with actual frames. These wide glasses, popular during the 60s, pair wonderfully with the modern fad of high, messy buns, too. You may also consider adding espresso and a really good book.

6. Turtlenecks

This style may keep your neck warm, but, more than that, it warms the hearts of fashion-forward people everywhere. The trend, also popular during the 60s, adds versatility to any outfit. Whether pairing under denim or a dress, turtlenecks add the perfect amount of vintage flair to any outfit.

7. Oversized Sweaters

This fad is as much cute as it is comfortable. It effortlessly adds warmth and style. The 90s trend pairs well with leggings and second, third, or even fourth-day hair. While this style may have been dubbed "frumpy" by many, it's definitely gaining more and more followers in modern day fashion.

8. Overalls.

Although Converse gained popularity during the 50s and stayed popular throughout the 80s, the trend has as many followers now as it did then. High-tops effortlessly pair with both dresses and jeans. This unchanging, unending versatility adds a lot of hype to this smart shoe choice.

9. High-top Sneakers

One of the oldest vintage fads, originating in the 1920s, this trend is anything but old. High, patterned collars continue to resurface in modern-day closets. They not only look great underneath sweaters, but they dress up even the most casual of outfits.

11 Things You Know To Be True If You Have A Big Booty

Yes, I know you like big butts and you cannot lie.

Having a big butt has its ups and its downs. For example, I love being confident in my body and looking great in the clothes I wear, but finding clothes that actually fit is a problem. With everyone trying to look like a Kardashian, big butts are all the rage, but it's not always all that it's cracked up to be!

1. All bathing suit bottoms are cheeky.

I have to get a pair of bottoms two sizes bigger than I have to get a top. Even when I do that, the bottoms still look cheeky. Imagine what actual cheeky bottoms look like. *blushing emoji*

2. Shorts? Also cheeky.

I love a cute pair of short shorts, but no matter the size, they're just going to ride up. I'll be spending most of the time worrying about pulling my shorts down. Why can't I look cute and be comfortable????

3. Trying to squeeze through a tight area is nearly impossible.

Stomachs can be sucked in when it comes to squeezing through. You can't suck in your butt when your trying to get through. Most of the time, it's like a bull in a china shop that takes out everything and everyone in its path.

4. Shopping for jeans is a nightmare.

People complain that my jeans look painted on, but if I got them any bigger, they'd hang off of my waist. If they fit in the butt, they don't fit in the waist. And the fit in the thighs are a whole different story. You can't have it all.

5. When you finally do get that perfect pair of jeans, this happens.

All I have to say is, UGH!!!

6. THE WEDGIES.

Debatably the biggest con to having a big butt. I have to pick out a wedgie at least twelve times a day. The day I can find a pair of underwear or an outfit that doesn't get lost in my cheeks will be the day I can die happily.

7. People automatically assume you can dance.

Some girls with big butts know how to move them. I am not one of those girls. My butt size and my ability to dance are totally unrelated. I may look like I know how to move, but my lack of coordination and rhythm will tell you a different story.

8. Your butt is always used as a pillow.

I've come to terms with the fact that my butt doubles as a comfy lying place for people's heads. I'm glad that I can be of service.

9. Bodycon dresses are a blessing and a curse.

You definitely have the Kardashian look going on in a bodycon dress, which is a major plus. That is, until you try to bend over or lift your arms at all. Then, you give everyone in the room an all access pass to Flashville. Sorry to all the people who have seen parts of me they might not have wanted to when I've dropped my phone.

10. You know every word to songs about big butts.

From "Baby Got Back" to "Fat Bottomed Girls" to "Bootylicious," lyrics about big butts are so relatable. You can catch me rapping/singing every word when one of these songs come on.


11. How you feel knowing big butts are finally the trend...

My whole life, I wanted to be the skinny girl with the perfect body because that's what everyone thought was beautiful. I spent years hating my body, specifically my butt, because I wasn't shaped like the girls in the magazines. Finally, society accepts girls with bodies like mine and I couldn't be happier! But, what I've learned over the years is that all shapes and sizes are beautiful as long as I'm happy with myself.

It's a blessing and a curse (but mostly, a blessing). IF YOU GOT IT, FLAUNT IT!
