I feel like I’ve been pretty open about accepting new trends. I’m okay with skinny high-waisted jeans just like our moms wore in the 80s, pin-up girl style bikinis are pretty cute to me, even jeggings have found their way into my closet. However, there are certain fashion trends that really cross a line for me, or have been accepted for way too long in my opinion. Maybe if we band together we can get rid of them! Am I off the mark here or do you agree?
Leopard Print 1 of 12Certain animal prints I like and enjoy in a small dose but I've never met a leopard print that looked classy.

Culottes and Wide Leg Trousers 2 of 12Especially in a horizontal stripe, and with the exception of pajamas. In my opinion, there's a reason why pajama-shaped pants are meant to be worn inside where no one can see you.

Mommy and Me Outfits 3 of 12Kids these days dress too much like adults anyway. Why would we make it worse by dressing just like them? I'm calling this one a bit tacky
See this one at Blue Sky Rocket
Huge Flower Headbands on Babies 4 of 12I get that your bald little baby girl might need a bitty flower clip on her head to distinguish her from the baby boy next door, but a gigantic flower is feminine overload for such a little babe.

Mustaches 5 of 12Mustaches were overplayed, and I'm pretty sick of them. I get it, they're funny. Like 4 years ago. But that aside, where do we even begin with this one? Unless you're dressing up as the Easter Bunny, there's no good reason for a grown adult to have a huge bunny plastered on their sweatshirt.

Huge Ruffled Blouses 6 of 12Confession: I still have a couple of these in my closet but am feeling that they're starting to look a bit lion mane-ish. Please remind me of this if you see me wearing one.

Wild Wedge Booties 7 of 12I'm just beginning to be okay with booties, but huge wedge ones, especially with wild cut-outs, just seem way over the top — and a bit too red light district for me
Find these Jeffery Campbell's for $179 at Urban Outfitters
Embroidered Birds 8 of 12The trend of slapping an embroidered bird on any article of clothing for instant sweetness has been going on for waaaaay too long and needs to end.

Sweater Dresses in a Horizontal Stripe 9 of 12Sweater dresses are pretty unflattering enough for most body types, but add a horizontal stripe and unflattering takes on a whole new unfortunate meaning.

Elastic Ankle Trousers 10 of 12I've never seen a body type flattered in an elastic waist pant. It's a slippery slope from these to MC hammer pants.

Pajama Jeans 11 of 12I'm iffy enough on jeggings but pajama jeans just cross a very visible line in my book. Pajamas or jeans. Pick one.

Ironic Tees 12 of 12Sure, I've been known to still wear my "Canada: Fits Your Budget" tee but I'm mostly over them, especially for men in their 30s and 40s.
