Over the last several decades, we’ve seen hundreds of different fashion trends come and go.
Sometimes even multiple times because they were just that stylish.
Then there are the trends that need to never ever come back because they’re so horrible, and we can’t believe people rocked them to begin with.
This is a trend that is slowly fading away, but for years now, I’ve struggled to find the appeal in the first place. It doesn’t look cute, and it can’t be all that comfortable, can it?
2. Baggy jeans.
This is a trend every parent and grandparent in the world scolded from the moment it started, but the young whippersnappers were too busy hiking up their pants to listen.
3. Doubled-up polo shirts.
I don’t know what was going through people’s minds at this tragic point in fashion, but it happened. All we can do now is repress the memory and try to move on with our lives.
4. The popped collar.
I for one am grateful this trend has passed. It was pretty embarrassing to catch your reflection in the mirror only to notice that half your collar had fallen down and you had no idea.
I know, I know, they’re “comfortable,” but I can promise you that there are plenty of comfortable shoes out in this world that don’t make you look like you just lot a bet.
6. Rat tails and mullets.
There are some hairstyles over the years that have been pretty awful, but we’ve let them slide because it was cool then. Rat tails and mullets are just about the only two styles that we cannot forgive, however.
7. Shutter shades.
If, for whatever reason, your heart is totally set on wearing these bad boys, fine. But please just don’t expect to ever be taken seriously.
Also, what’s the point of them???
8. Bell bottoms.
Although this is an older trend, some celebs have dabbled in bringing the style back, and we can only hope that this doesn’t happen.
Do you know how HARD it is to wear bell bottoms with boots?
9. Flame bowling shirts.
We all knew that one kid who wore this shirt every single day.
If this is still you, please do what this shirt has been begging for all these years and burn it.
This is another old trend that recent generations have only heard of because cousin Eddie wears one in National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.
Save yourself the embarrassment — just wear a full-length shirt.
11. Gaucho pants.
I have to admit that I was forced to wear these pants as a child and I’m honestly still not over it.
There are NO shoes that look okay with these. You can bet on that.
12. Velour tracksuits
If you wear one of these, especially if it’s matching, you’re just asking to be made fun of. Extra cringe if it says the words “Juicy” or “princess” on the rear end.
13. Platform sandals.
Whoever invented this clearly never had to walk anywhere in their life.
This is the most impractical form of footwear, and sure, it gives you a bit of height, but at the cost of a broken ankle.
14. JNCO jeans.
Just looking at these makes the baggy jeans trend seem at least tolerable.
On the bright side, there was plenty of pocket space for your giant iPhone that hadn’t been invented yet.
15. Overly thin eyebrows.
This was super trendy in the early ’00s, and I know we’ll soon be saying the same thing about the full eyebrows that are currently taking over Instagram.
Honestly, why can’t we just find a happy medium?
What you wear in your own home is your business, but please don’t venture out in public with those horrific looking boots.
