It’s not that they’re ugly fashion trends (because everyone has their own preferences, right?) … no. It’s just that no matter how hard I may try to gaze at them enthusiastically, or smile when I see them sprinkled across a number of people in the streets, I just can’t quite seem to see eye to eye with these certain looks… AT ALL.
Presenting… the Top 5 Fashion Trends that I will never, ever understand! :
Fashion Offender #1: Crocs
Oh sure, your colours are delightful and I’ve heard that you’re mighty comfortable, but so is my favourite set of pyjamas and I’m hardly going to start wearing them outside, now am I?! (Hint: NO.) Crocs, I don’t want to ruffle any feathers here, but all I’m saying is that maybe, just MAYBE you’re best suited to within the confinements of someone’s own home, or garden, and definitely not in malls paired with an otherwise very alluring summer dress… after all, there’s a reason why there are so many Facebook groups dedicated to you!
Fashion Offender #2: “Jeggings”
They’re not quite jeans and they’re not quite leggings, but put them together and bam! You’ve got jeggings! I’m willing to consider the fact that these could possibly look cute when accessorised with a particularly stunning outfit, but unfortunately, this is never how I see them being worn. Instead, they’re always displayed on their own, and while I do give them props for being independent, unfortunately, they lose all marks for giving the public almost instant x-ray vision to everything that their wearers have on offer underneath.
Now, I KNOW that you’re the shoe equivalent of a four-poster bed, and that’s fine because I not-so-secretly love you too, but when worn with a mini-skirt a la` Britney Spears for a stint of weekday shopping, I kind of want to pretend that I don’t know you, let alone keep two pairs in my wardrobe!
Fashion Offender #5: High Heels Without Um, The Actual Heel Part
I like Victoria Beckham. Her interviews are rarely anything but entertaining, and her fashion sense is innovative, interesting and FRESH. But these shoes? Ouch. They literally make my feet wince at the sight of them, and I can’t help but notice the fact that even David Beckham seems mildly amused in this photograph, too!
Which fashion trends would YOU be happy to kiss goodbye and well, never see again?
