Trends We Hope Never Come Back
Fashion throws multiple trends our way at all times, but that doesn’t mean they’re all nice. You probably want to burn some old photographs thanks to some embarrassing sartorial choices you made. Here are some trends that we wish never existed and hope they vanish for good.
Super Low Rise Jeans
Why people voluntarily chose to embrace this trend and display their muffin tops and butt cleavage is beyond me. Walking around holding onto the waist band of those low-cut jeans to avoid flashing people definitely made it an uncomfortable style. The trend also turned crass when plenty of starlets and music video dolls started showing off their stringy innerwear with such jeans.
Giant Shoulder Pads
The 80s was a decade of plenty of fashion but unfortunately, big shoulder pads were not one of them. Big hair and bigger shoulders were a craze that took creating an hourglass figure a bit too far. Thank god the trend has passed and we can stick to our proportionate, normal-sized shoulders.
It started out as footwear meant for infants and seniors but soon, crocs were crawling all over the scene. They may be extremely comfy but score negative points on the style scale. Anything that is designed to resemble reptilian creatures is bound to be hideous.
Clear Plastic Bra Straps
Since these bra straps are clearly visible to the world, it’s really pointless to wear them right? Not only are they silly, but they also bring a lot of tackiness to any look. It’s better to go strapless than wear these plastic straps.
Sheer maybe hot but only when limited to a woman’s wardrobe. We all have cringed watching Shah Rukh Khan dancing around in those transparent shirts, even before he got his 6 pack. There is nothing sexy about a guy in clothes that make him look half naked, especially if he has an unshapely body.
Guys, no matter how cool your boxers are; showing them off in a pair of super baggy jeans will never make you look good. Jeans and pants are never meant to be worn below your butt, even if your favourite hip hop artist says they should. Living in fear that your trousers could slip off any moment is never a good thing.
Ed Hardy Anything
This brand is a clear example that just because it’s expensive doesn’t make it stylish. A mesh of skulls, hearts, tigers, serpents and plenty of embellishments and bling to make a loud statement is definitely not going to impress us. Unless you’re gay or trying to dress like a pimp, I suggest you don’t break the bank for any Ed hardy merchandise.
