While I try to keep an open mind when it comes to fashion and have happily ended up purchasing “fad” items after they’ve proven to be more than just that, there are a few items in particular that have come into the limelight this year or the past few years that I can confidently say I will not be purchasing anytime in the near future. Maybe it’s the fact that I know that these pieces will not look good on me, or maybe it’s the fact that I think some of these just look a little silly in general that deters me from trying these pieces out. Either way, they’re simply not my style but if you can rock them, more power to you!
Jean Skirts – I’m not a huge skirt person as it is but I remember these particular skirts being even more uncomfortable than any of my other skirts back in the 90’s when they were last in style simply because they were so constricting! They pose the usual danger of wearing skirts (riding up to wear to where the sun don’t shine) along with the rigidness of denim. Not my idea of a good time.
Flatform Shoes – These are one of those items that I think just look silly. I personally do not think they elongate the legs and instead just look clunky and a little bit clown-shoe-esque. But maybe that’s just me? Plus I would probably last about two minutes in these before I twisted an ankle.
Denim Diaper – No they’re not actually called this but they could be. If the legs of your shorts hike up higher than your crotch, I subconsciously think “diaper” and I wish I didn’t but I can’t help it! Fashion is in the eye of the beholder I guess?
Heeled Sneaker – Similar to how my mind goes to “diaper” when I see the previous type of shorts, my mind goes to “hoof” when I see heeled sneakers. I kind of think that if you want to wear heels, wear heels, and if you want to wear sneakers, wear sneakers. Combining them makes for what I think look like a very hoof-like shoe that don’t really make sense.
Front to Back Earrings – Half the time I see people wearing these I think that they have something growing on the back of their earlobe. The other half of the time I need to ask them to turn their head the correct way in order for me to properly see it. Either way, it’s not the easiest way to appreciate a piece of jewelry. I think I’m going to stick with my boring one-sided studs.
