7 Worst Fashion Trends That Should Die Soon!


I know, I know! As a fashion blogger, I constantly need to be in touch with the latest fashion trends and know what is in or out of fashion. But that does not necessarily mean that we have to love everything that is trending! I posted an article on new fashion trends and whether it is important to buy them all. It is amazing to know how many of you could relate to my thoughts! I recently came across an article on Elle Magazine about how we are unknowingly becoming a slave of what is called the latest fashion trends!

So today’s post is dedicated to some of the fashion trends that I dislike and feel that they should die soon and make room for something more fresh and wearable!

As a disclaimer I would like to mention that my thoughts are personal and under no circumstances I mean any offence to anyone.

Extreme Distressed Denims

I do love distressed denims actually. In fact I recently created a D.I.Y ripped pair out of one of my old denims! I love the touch of edge that a moderately distressed pair of denims can bring to an outfit, more so when you team them with a pretty feminine blouse. But hey, there has to be limit to distressing a pair. Ripping a pair to death is so not my style and I don’t find anything flattering about an extremely distressed denim. Do you?


Backward Shirts

I seriously don’t understand why anyone would want to wear a shirt backwards. I don’t see anything fun in it! It is neither comfortable nor greatly creative! I understand blouses with a back opening. But wearing a normal shirt reversed is absolutely meaningless!


Bralette Over Tops

I love my lingerie where they belong, as inner wears. While a little peek-a-boo is sensuous, wearing a bralette or a bustier over a top or a tee is beyond my understanding. When I saw this trend on the runway for the first time I seriously wondered why! I kind of disliked it so much that I didn’t even add it to my list of favoriteΒ Summer Fashion 2017! And I could see this trend getting very popular and lot of fashion bloggers styling it really well. But even my most favorite fashion bloggers couldn’t inspire me to try wearing my bralette over a shirt! Now I feel I have seen it enough and it is about time lovely fashionistas wear their bras or bustiers under their shirts and tees rather than over them πŸ™‚


Kidswear Appliques

I know we all have a little child inside us but there are better ways to give an outlet to the child within than going too literal with kidswear inspired clothes! Honestly I quite liked these appliques as one of the latest fashion trends initially. But soon it got too much to bear with! Bananas, ice-creams and popping eyes on oversized denim jackets and boy friend fit denims were anything but flattering to be worn by an adult!


Cold Shoulders

I must admit I am a lot tolerant of this trend compared to the rest of my list! It is not all that bad. In fact I quite like the shoulder baring bardot trend a lot. But it’s just that I don’t think it is at all appealing as a design feature. I mean if I want to show off my shoulders for any reason, I will wear an off shoulder, a bardot or a sleeveless outfit. What’s with those two little openings on the shoulders? What do they do?


Extreme Over-size Fits

I swear I loved this trend. In fact I shared this as one of my favorite latest fashion trends of the season. After all, we are normal human beings. We may not be able to fit into a bandage dress every day of our lives. It’s amazing to have oversized silhouettes as a trending fashion. I though I could hide unsightly bulges under those extra fabrics and yet be on trend. I know, what I saw on the runway was little too dramatically oversized, but I also thought that the practical trend that will trickle down to the street fashion would be a lot more wearable. Guess i was seriously wrong! People decided to take oversized too literally and decided to wear outfits at least 5 sizes bigger than their own! Reason? Who knows? And the most intimidating fact is that I picked up these images from ‘best dressed’ sections of some of the greatest fashion magazines of the world! πŸ™‚


Unicorn Inspired Hair

I wonder if I am the only one feeling this way, but are we not over “Unicorn everything” yet? If not, can we at least be over the unicorn inspired hair highlights please! Not only will I never do it, I will not even want to see anybody doing it anymore! I know I myself said several times on the blog that when it comes to fashion, never say never. But with unicorn hair, hell never! I mean I can wear it to a costume party as a wig but colouring my hair like I just stepped out of a fantasy land is well, too much!

I loved writing this post. Not only was it a nice break from doing look posts. it was also fun to put together this list. I would love to hear your thoughts because I know a lot of these trends might be your favourites as they are pretty popular. So, do leave your comments below!

Enjoy your day! See you soon!

    Loved each and every new style. Although each one of them is eccentric but i think style statement is something which is not traditional, you have to think out the box. Keep writing and inspiring.

    I agree! I HATE these trends except I will admit I love cold shoulders. I only participate in the trends that I truly like.

    Ha, loved this post! I’m a fashion addict, but I’ve struggled a lot this year with some of the particular trends that seem to have caught hold. In particular the 90’s/00’s looks that have suddenly got popular again – they just remind me too much of how I dressed as a teen and in my early 20’s which just isn’t an era I want to revisit, style wise! Each to their own I guess, and someone with confidence can carry off even the most ‘out there’ looks, but that person isn’t me unfortunately! The only one of these I’ve found myself leaning towards is cold shoulders – not 100% though. I think a pretty, drapey off-the-shoulder sleeve on a cami or strappy dress can look really pretty, but I can’t say I’m a fan of those tops that look like someone took a pair of scissors to them! Maybe that’s because sleeves paired with bare flesh always confuses me – I can never work out what season to wear them in!

    This was such a fun post! I totally agree with you in regards to overly distressed jeans. I don’t mind when it’s appropriately distressed, but some of these chicks look like they should just wear a pair of shorts! LOL!

      I agree! Your comment is equally fun! I am laughing out loud! πŸ™‚ Thanks for dropping by πŸ™‚

    I enjoyed this post! I agree with you on how most of these trends need to disappear. The only one I truly like is the cold shoulder trend. I like it for summer and fall, but I think it is pointless in winter when you are wearing a sweater to keep warm and part of it is missing.

      Yeah I agree! Cold shoulder is actually not ridiculous, just pointless (in my opinion only)! πŸ˜‰ Glad you enjoyed the post! Thanks for dropping by πŸ™‚

    There are a few of these were I really agree with you including those bralettes, the unicorn hair, and the backwards shirt. I can’t believe people still find this stylish, it’s ridiculous! Paulo Paradox | http://www.pauloparadox.com

    Hahaha backward shirt – I’d didn’t even know that was a trend! Totally agree with you that this ridiculous trend needs to go!

    LOVED the post! I agree with most of your points.. namely the patches, unicorn hair & extremely distressed jeans ugh!!! I think the oversized look in the coming year will be more controlled. Rather than a completely oversized look, I feel the trend would be for it to be oversized sporadically throughout the outfit and sliming it down towards the waist, and wrist. I actually came up with a design recently that illustrates what i’m saying. I will post it on my blog very soon πŸ™‚

    I am nowhere cognisant about what’s in and trending in the fashion world however, some of these trends, actually most are plain laughable especially 2nd. Why would anyone do that? πŸ˜‚

    At first I saw the “backwards shirt” category and was going to say I love those! because I was thinking of tops with a V in the back or open back but then I saw your pictures… no I totally agree these are all the worst http://littlewhytebook.com/

    Well, I pretty like the “Cold Shoulders” trend, but for the rest I totally agree with you!!
