I get it there are so many trends to choose from. But honestly there are some trends that you should turn your back on especially to wear to work. Let's admit trends come and go right? With that said why waste your money on these ugly trends. When they may only last for a few seasons and then kicked to the curve. Discover the 5 ugly trends you shouldn't wear to work and the 5 trends you should consider instead.

1. Biker Leggings

Mixing together biker shorts with a blazer is a fail and a pass on trend! The biker leggings are perfect for workouts but are not office friendly. Instead opt for a pair of trendy high waisted flared cropped jeans.

2. Chunky Sneakers

The "ugly," dad-style sneakers certainly made a comeback from the '90s, They can look unsophisticated and do nothing to help elongate the leg.

3. Short Crop Top

Definitely a big thumbs down! It’s boring and unflattering. Opt for a wrap top which is more flattering to the figure of any body type!

4. Neon Brights

If you want to add some excitement to your work attire, I suggest wearing it in an accessory like a neon belt or neon pumps or try electric-colored nails for less of a commitment.

So now that we've covered the 5 non appealing trends that you should pass on, it's time to check out the trends worth investing in to wear to work or for other occasions.

1. Modern and Classic Wrap Dress

The wrap dress is the perfect silhouette to be complemented with a robe coat. It’s both work appropriate, trendy, and can be all year round!

2. African Prints or Leopard Print

Another great way to add personality to a basic look is by implementing this years huge statement prints such as snake print and African prints. It’s daring apart from the neon trend, these trending prints can be worn in tops, dresses, shoes, handbags. It’s great to have a variety of options.

3. Oval Sunglasses

Cinched Suiting which was seen at Prada which is basically a blazer whether it’s oversized or tailored being worn with a belt cinching the waist paired with matching pants or skirt. This trend is such a go-getter, it’s stylish, classy, and office friendly! What a win win! No need to purchase a $3,000 Prada built-in cinched blazer. Just grab a lovely blazer from out of your currently owned wardrobe, and purchase a stylish chain belt or large buckle belt and style it accordingly.

5. White Boots
