You're not welcome ever again

So last night on the train I saw this...TIGHT ROLLED PANTS, you guys. My brain seized. I was transported back to 1987 when I wore acid washed tight rolled jeans with big ass socks, colored Reeboks, and garish sweaters in Mrs. Victor's fifth grade class.


This was not a good look then, and it's not a good look now!

I am certainly not a fashionista. I have been to the grocery store in my plaid pajama pants. I have worn yoga pants to work. Nonetheless, here are other things I hope will go away and never come back:
  • Leggings as pants. You all know I cannot abide by this. They are super cute under long shirts and sweaters or dresses. However, if your girly bits are on full display, you are wearing them as pants. And you should stop. 
  • Trucker hats
  • Fedoras
  • Skinny jeans for men
  • Men's saggy baggy pants. Notice: we don't want to see your boxers or your buttocks. Move along.
  • Shoulder pads
  • Fanny packs (I already know Laura will disagree with me on this)
  • Uggs. I know, I know. They're comfortable and warm. Everyone keeps telling me that. I just...can't.

  • If you must wear Uggs, do not wear them with bare legs and a mini skirt. Please. I'm begging you.

  • Those sneakers that claim to tone your buttocks. They just look like lopsided platforms. 
  • Vibram toe shoes. They freak me out.
  • Celebrities that are bundled up for frigid temperatures when it hits 62. 

Now early 90s grunge...that can come back any day.

What trends are you over  for eternity?












Linking up with Shanna for Random Wednesday.

  1. I agree with all of this, except fedoras. I love them. And really, I'm OK with leaving 90's grunge where it is.

    Must add crocs, unless you're under the age of 5.

  2. Love this post! I totally agree, especially the Uggs with skirts. Back in college I bought a skirt specifically because I thought it looked adorable with my Uggs. I'm soo pleased to say the tags were never cut off that skirt haha.

  3. I am literally laughing out loud at Paneta Bread between doctors appointments. And now I'm staring at everyone's outfits to look for any fashion blunders.

    I DO wear Uggs, because they are warm and comfy. That said, I always wear flared jeans over them so you can barely tell they are Uggs. Uggs and mini skirts... Ugg-Ly.

  5. I agree with ALL OF THESE. Although I am 50-50 on the Uggs. If I didn't live in Alaska, I wouldn't even consider them...as it stands, I'm not looking forward to another freezing cold winter so I'm debating getting a pair. I think they can look *semi* cute with skinny jeans and hoodies, but...who knows. I am ridiculously out of the style loop up here.

    Leggings as pants are a regular occurrence around these parts - HATE IT.

  6. HAHA! Really funny post! I agree with most things... but the 62 degree weather can seem really cold when you are used to it being really warm! <---california girl, 60 is too cold for me :/ (California winterwear: Hoodie, jeans, flipflops)

    Uggs are so ugly and they do NOTHING for your feet, even small feet look giant in them! In california, so many girls wear mini skirts/shorts and uggs. UGH!

    Yes, add crocs too!

  14. I move to the UK a few years ago, and I have noticed that a lot of women where the shirt with the tight or thin leggings. It is so incredibly horrible looking regardless of your size. It looks like you forgot to put on pants or a skirt when you left the house. And the add insult to injury, a lot of them are walking around with runs in them. I love this article so I have to share.
