Fall Fashion Trends You Can Leave Behind (PHOTOS)

With summer ending in a few weeks, we're getting ready to fill our closets with all the fall fashion trends! (Okay, well, maybe not all of them.)

Of the trends that came down the fall 2014 runways, most were wonderful -- cozy knits, mod accents, power suits -- while others, on the other hand, not so much.

From face swallowing turtlenecks to wacky headgear, the shows were full of trends that, in our opinion, were better suited for the runway than real life. To check out the seasons strangest trends, scroll through for yourself.

As seen on the runways at Gareth Pugh and The Row, these oversized turtlenecks looked like they were literally swallowing the models whole. We're not sure anyone can actually this off, except if they're Anna Dello Russo...and even she'd be pushing it. (Pictured below: Gareth Pugh, Comme Des Garcons, Peter Pilotto)

Ridiculous and oversized hats were all over the runways for fall, and thanks to Pharrell Williams, who wore a mountie-like Vivienne Westwood creation to the 2014 Grammys, the trend had a moment. But we think it's better left on the runways. (Pictured below: Gareth Pugh, Manish Arora, Vivienne Westwood)

Fur (real or faux) can definitely look luxurious, but when you add bright colours into the mix, things can get a little out of hand. If you're going to rock a fur look, we think it's best to keep things looking natural. (Pictured below: Altuzarra, Topshop Unique, 3.1 Phillip Lim)

We love layers, especially for fall, but the whole pants under skirts trend seems like a little much to us (though, we do admit, it would probably be pretty warm). But, we'll stick to pairing our skirts with tights, thank you very much. (Pictured below: Balenciaga, Kenzo, Kenzo)

Rain boots are meant to be rain boots, and heels are meant to be heels. The two should never mix, which is why we're leaving this trend behind. (Pictured below: Rag And Bone, Miu Miu, Miu Miu)

Unless you're Lady Gaga or Miley Cyrus, you're probably going to want to keep your nipples covered up, especially for fall's chilly days. And don't get us wrong, we love sheer, but it's all about moderation. (Pictured Below: Marc Jacobs, Givenchy, Marc Jacobs)

On the runway, feathers can look whimsical and fairytale-like, but when translated into real life, they're just a little too bird-like for our tastes. For that reason, we'll skip the feathers and let the models continue to make our fashion fantasies come true on the catwalk. (Pictured below: Alexander McQueen, Lanvin, Celine)

In theory, muffs are great -- they keep you warm, and they're super glamourous. But in actuality, they're kind of impractical. We mean, you can't hold a purse, your phone, and your muff all at once, and you'd likely still have to wear gloves under it for extra warmth. (Pictured below: Tory Burch, BCBG Max Azria, Balenciaga)
