Graduation Day: Our Vote For Trends That Are Most Likely To Succeed

We all know those sorts who love to relive the glory days of high school. You know, the ones who seem perpetually trapped in the amber of their glorious Senior Year when they were voted Most Likely To (blah, blah, blah). The same can easily happen with style, and before you know it you’ve still got boot cut jeans with big emblems emblazoned on your pockets. We love a good trend, but there’s a time when all good trends must graduate, and we’ve got a few suggestions. No, there won’t be a quiz, but we’d definitely recommend taking notes if you’re ready for higher learning.

Gap Legging Jean vs. the Gap New Wide Leg Trouser Jean

No matter how nice your stems are, we’re guessing they haven’t gotten a chance to breath in a while. Ditch your jeggings and try a wider leg jean a la Rachel Zoe. They’ll elongate your legs, won’t accentuate any skipped gym sessions and are spot on with the resurgence of the ’70s.

Chanel Glossimer vs. Chanel Rouge Allure Lacque

Yes, Chanel is timeless, but nothing says juvenile like overly glossed lips – even if the tube’s got a double C on top. Skip the gloss and slick on Chanel’s new Rouge Allure Lacuqe, a satin finish liquid lipstick that’s as light as a gloss and leaves a more sophisticated satin finish to your pout. The best part? Your hair isn’t sticking to this stuff when a summer breeze shoots past.

Victoria’s Secret vs. {intimacy}

If you’re a fan of Victoria’s Secret, look around next time you’re in the store. If there’s nothing but teenagers underfoot and you’re holding a handful of “I heart pink” panties, drop everything and use those VS wings to carry you to {intimacy} where they’ll measure you (85% of women are wearing the wrong sized bra) and outfit you in hard-to-find European labels.

Marc by Marc Jacobs Pretty Nylon Medium Computer Case vs. incase Eley Kishimoto Case

Sure it’s cute, but how much protection do you think you’re getting from quilted nylon? Skip out on the designer doodads and go for a brand that specializes in protection. In collaboration with artist Eley Kishimoto, incase delivers fashion savvy and tech-tough way to tote your notebook.

Ray Ban Wayfarer vs. Randolph Engineering x Michael Bastian Sportsman

Tom Cruise wore them in Risky Business, which was instant cool then, but if Jonas Brothers are wearing them, too, we’d reconsider. Sure some would consider these timeless, but we’re thinking they’re more tired. What’s a definite classic? Aviators. And the collab between CFDA award winner Michael Bastian and military-supplier Randolph Engineering is the real thing. If they’re good enough for the Air Force, they’re definitely perfect for the urban warrior, too.
