So we’re talking fashion trends today. I realised that on this blog I talk a lot about things that I like but never about things that I don’t so that is changing today. This
may be will be a bit of a controversial post as I’m sure there are going to be plenty of people that feel personally attacked as I don’t like something that they wear.
I just want to say that these points are not aimed at anyone in particular. They are opinions I’ve made over a long period of time after viewing the items and many styles of them. Also, as an alternative girl I’m MORE than used to people looking at my hair/tattoos/the clothes I wear and thinking/saying ‘what the f***’ so we’re good. One of my recent items being my skull bag, certain members of my family have made it clear they think I’m an idiot for liking it. But really, who cares. I like it and I’m the one who has to wear it so it doesn’t matter. I also know for a fact there are loads of people who despise the current animal print trend, I personally love it but it’s cool if you don’t. Anyway, onto my fashion peeves!
Fashion Trends I’ve Never Understood
Why anyone would ever want to wear one of these is beyond me. Are you going fishing? Did you borrow your granddads hat? WHY? I’d rather walk around having cracked an egg on my head, I just really don’t understand… help.
Low Rise Jeans
These scream early noughties and I admit some people can really pull them off but if you’ve got even a hint of excess fat on your hips (much like myself), they end up making your body look the weirdest shape. Also it seems to be the ongoing trend currently that almost every upper body item sold is cropped, not so bad if you’re wearing high waisted clothing but possible belly flashing trouble if you decide to go low rise. But I mean if that’s your thing, go for it.
This trend was SO popular at one point. I literally don’t get it at all?? So you’ve got a top or a dress and then there’s just a random bit of flowy fabric sewn round it by your belly button? What does that add or do to the outfit? It just looks odd as hell to me.
I hate it. It just reminds me of either the 80s or being 11 and wearing those weird neon leg warmers and tutus to birthday parties or to pose in Bebo pictures. I keep seeing it pop up in the form of puffer jackets recently and I’m really failing to understand why anyone would wear that let alone pay actual money for it. Which actually brings me on nicely to my next item…
Just, what?? Who thought these were a good idea? To be fair, I have seen a few people that can really pull these jackets off. Whenever I look at them or imagine one on myself though I just think every day life jacket? Perks: no chance of spontaneous drowning.
Heeled Dr Martens/Converse
Why? What did these shoes ever do to you? I’ve actually honestly never seen anyone wear these in real life so I do wonder if they even sell. They were perfectly fabulous without heels, LEAVE THEM ALONE, they look ridiculous.
Tshirts Over Hoodies
I’m not sure how many people will know about this but there was a phase in the hardcore/emo music scene where everyone decided to start buying t-shirts in bigger sizes than their already ginormous hoodies and then wearing them over the top? The tshirts were short sleeved and then the hoodies long sleeves used to come out underneath them. Very odd time.
Trainers That Look Like Moon Boots/Space Shoes
Honestly, I recently walked in Size and didn’t like one pair of trainers I saw. What on earth happened to a classic pair of comfy black and white trainers? They’re now all 5 different colours with alien soles, weird flicks, waves and velcro straps on them. I’m confused, I’m really not down with the kids anymore.
That’s all I can think of for now but I’m sure there are plenty others that I consider fashion suicide. I’m fully ready to be roasted by other people for my own fashion choices, oops. Would you be interested in reading what I think are beauty trend disasters?
What would you say are fashion trends you’ve never got on board with? Are you a fan of any that I dislike?
