Perhaps Kim Kardashian is to blame since interest in the constricting body-shaping technique peaked after she started posting photos of herself wearing a waist trainer on Instagram. And PreMadonna, the creator of Kim K's coveted corsets, has attracted even more Waist Gang Society converts thanks to her appearances on Season 4 of Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta .

Fall 2015 Fashion Trends: Grunge, Boho Chic and Plaid on Parade

Fall is our favorite season. In autumn, we say goodbye to the muggy summer weather and sweaty subway platforms and say hello to colorful falling leaves and crisp, cool temps.  And more importantly, we get to showcase our best boots, jackets, jeans, and anything and everything plaid. Over the summer, Everything She Wants went to Fall 2015 fashion previews for Old Navy, Kmart, DSW and Aeropostale, and two of the trends that stood out were a reboot of '90s grunge style and the staying power of boho chic festival style.  So hopefully you saved your flannel shirts, ripped boyfriend jeans, oversized hats, long sweaters and cozy capes from previous seasons.  If not, at least you have a good excuse to go shopping.
