Trends come and go … and then, unfortunately, they come back again. I was always told you learn from your mistakes, but that rule does not seem to apply to the fashion industry. Lucky for you, I’ve tracked down some of the most awful fashion trends that we’ve been blessed with throughout the years. Here’s hoping we don’t see these return anytime soon!
Fake Hair Scrunchies
Your mom said no not because she was mean. She told you no because this looks like roadkill, and you wanted to put it in your hair.
This was the epitome of “cool” during my junior high years! Nothing said style like squeezing your body in hot pink velvet in the early 00’s. Except maybe adding the words “JUICY” to the butt.
I don’t remember WHY I had these, but I know I did -- in four colors. I also remember not being able to see anything out of them. Here’s a little flashback for you.
Low rise jeans
For those of you who didn’t live in constant fear that your underwear or butt crack was constantly showing, take our word for it. Luckily you could pair these with a large white or black studded belt, which could REALLY be tied together when adding some vans and extra tight Abercrombie top. Talk about fashionista.
The first time I saw this shirt, I thought it was for a doll. Don’t buy anything you can share with a doll.
Not having eyebrows.
We all know this was bad. I won’t make you relive it.
Shirts with Velcro
THIS WAS THE COOLEST THING EVER when I was in 6th grade, and in theory, it was an awesome idea. We would wear our Velcro shirts and spell really creative messages like “Cheer Girl” or “Soccer Star.” And then the letters would fall off and you’d be, “Cher Gil,” and a little less confident.
Whatever this is.
Layering is my favorite … but I have absolutely no idea who came up with this look. Why are you wearing a dress and jeans? How are you comfortable? Where do you live … does your house have lights?
I will take all the 99 cent eyeliner pencils you have, please.
And the classic Soffee shorts with words on your butt
How is ANYONE supposed to know I’m a track star if it isn’t written on the back of my shorts? How do athletes do it today?
