12 Fashion Trends I Wish Would Go Out of Style

By Liz Stanley |

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?

    I love mustaches! But I do not like adult clothes with animals on them. Tacky. Its alright (to an extent) for kids. I dont really like animal print at all. Unless its giraffe print on my Miche Bag.

  2. Jennifer says:

    I’m with you on most of this. I’ve never even heard of pajama jeans though. I can tell you that the gigantic flower headbands are a huge trend at my daughter’s preschool, but I think they are a waste of money. If I’m going to spend $10.99 on my daughter, I’ll get her a cute outfit. Femininity works well in small increments with your girl’s beauty (inner and outer) shining thru.

  3. Kelley Jayne says:

    Thanks for the article, I am with you on these unfortunate trends. Fake flowers are not any cuter as a headband.

  4. Laura says:

    Ditto the huge flower headbands! My baby’s a baldy and she wears plenty of navy and gets called a boy and who cares! Also ditto the pajama jeans. Though are these actually a trend? Who wears them? If you can’t make do with some skinnies-with-stretch, you need to reevaluate your mental health status.

  5. Megan says:

    You’re pretty bang on with those “trends that need to die”. I still like bird prints though. I’ve never liked the Jeffrey Campbell clunky shoe trend. Always seemed to me like he was playing a joke on women and trying to make us look silly.

  6. kari says:

    I definitely agree on the mustaches.

  7. Chelsea says:

    I’m SO with you on most of these, especially the giant-can’t-even-see-the-baby-bows. I really despise those. I do, however, love a good leopard print and think it can be incredibly classy and timeless.

  8. Cecilia says:

    How could you have excluded the horror of fedoras for everyone?! That would have been number one on my personal list. ;) But thank you for drawing attention to the mustache crisis that’s sweeping the nation.

  9. Julie says:

    Ooooh, I gotta disagree on the wide leg pants issue. I think too many of us have been sucked into the “just because everyone else is wearing them, they must look good on me, too” skinny pant bandwagon. Don’t you remember when they first came out and they looked terrible on everyone? Wide leg pants are classic and make most women look great.

  10. Erin says:

    Canada doesn’t really fit your budget anymore. Oh wait, was that the irony?

  11. Heidi says:

    I am in agreement with all of them except the wide-leg jean/trouser. As a lady who’s rocking a pair of substantial thighs, they actually look great on me (rather than the carrot-leg effect of a skinny jean). As the mom of a 6-month old girl, I can’t imagine wanting to put one of those awful flower headbands on her. Elastic pants? No thanks, not ever.

    I do lie leopard print on small items like shoes, and am very fond of my ruffled blouses, and like ruffles on my flannel and cotton night gowns-I just love the ruffled look on most people in general.

  13. Shea Tek says:

    I think it’s funny that, with that first picture, she says the leopard print jacket is the problem.

    Personally, I like striped sweaters and ironic t-shirts. Granted, my striped sweaters are all hip-length jackets and my ironic t-shirts are actually funny, they still don’t deserve to be on this page, I don’t think.
