30 Weird Fashion Trends in Recent History

Half-On Jacket

Why can’t people wear jackets right? If it’s cold outside, the last thing anyone wants is freezing shoulders. People wear jackets to stay warm, and they wear shaws for fashion.

Clear Plastic Clothing

Clear plastic clothing over-all seems like a horrible design. First, it sticks to skin. Second, it’s hot and sweaty. Third, sweat clouds up the plastic to show the world how steamy the wearer really is. We don’t even want to talk about the smell.

Platform Crocs

Crocs seemed like low-hanging fruit at this point, but did you know that platform crocs exist? Not only do they exist, but high-end brands have picked up the style and run with it. Let’s just put this back in the trash where it belongs.

Boyfriend Jeans

Boyfriend jeans are like baggy jeans that do their best to avoid flattering any portion of the body. Men’s jeans don’t even wear this way. Men’s jeans are simply bootcut. Everyone should stop wearing them because they don’t look good.

Black Highlighter

Black highlighter, anti-highlighter – whatever it’s called, it’s dumb. The point of highlighter is to bring brightness to certain parts of a face to make it glowy. Black will certainly bring attention to someone’s face, but it will also make them look incredibly bad at makeup.

T-Shirts Under Slip Dresses

Slip dresses are coming back into style, and that’s awesome, but stop with the t-shirts under them. It isn’t flattering on anyone. If someone doesn’t want to wear the slip dress alone, they can wear it like a skirt for a better effect.

Fishnets and Jeans

In general, fishnets shouldn’t be worn by anyone over the age of 16. Wearing them under jeans is just one more unforgivable thing that will make a person like a kid – or an adult that hasn’t grown up.

Five Finger Shoes

Why do these shoes exist? Okay, maybe they help with grip while hiking, but they look ridiculous. What’s worse is that some people are actually wearing them outside in public while doing non-hiking activates. No one needs extra grip while shopping.

Peek-Toe Booties

Booties are for cold weather, sandals are for warm weather. Peek-toe booties are for what exactly? You can’t wear socks with them and the rest of your foot is going to sweat. We’re going to ask that peek-toe booties not to be a thing.

Super Long Sleeves

How can someone with this jacket do anything? It’s impossible to eat or drink, and we imagine that we’d probably trip if we put it on. The sleeves are four-foot long! The whole thing is unnecessary.

Fuzzy Heels

Fuzzy heels were famous in Hollywood for a flirty woman, but now it doesn’t make anyone look flirty. It’s downright childish, and the feathers probably go everywhere as they become worn down. Fuzzy shoes are fine for the house, but no one should be wearing fuzzy heels at home while resting.

Rompers

Rompers don’t look bad, but the design is so flawed. In order to use the restroom, the wearer has to take the whole thing off. If they didn’t look so adorable, the fad would be quickly abandoned. It’s time to wear a shirt and shorts like everyone did before rompers existed.

Super Expensive Hoodies

Hoodies are cheap, get worn out fast, and are for comfort. Super expensive hoodies do all of that and tack on an extra, hefty price tag. Instead of paying hundreds (sometimes thousands) for a Gucci hoodie, you could buy ten or twenty hoodies that do the same thing.

Fringe Sandals

Fringe is alright in small doses, but fringe sandals take it to an extreme. The whole thing is fringe, and it doesn’t look great. In fact, we’re going to say that fringe on any shoes are just a no-go.

Different Colored Shoes

Different colored shoes make it look like you got dressed in the dark. Okay, we’ve also run out the door with two different types of shoes, but they looked pretty similar. These? There’s no way anyone can pull a “whoopsie” on that one.

Fanny Packs

Fanny packs are useful, and we’re not afraid to admit that. With that being said – those that wear them look like tourists. No one wants to look like a tourist while they’re in their own state or country. Overseas? Go for it. We all look weird overseas, anyway.

Cropped Flare Jeans

Love flare jeans? What about cropped jeans? It’s alright to love them separately, and you can style them both to make a great outfit. With that being said, cropped flares make zero sense.

Shoulder Pads

Shoulder pads were a huge thing in the ‘80s when every woman had to have a power suit to rule the office. At the time, it was the style, and it didn’t look bad. Now, shoulder pads are a no go. It’s time to stop living in the ‘80s.

Tracksuits

Tracksuits should have stayed in the ‘90s where they belonged – looking at you, Juicy Couture. For some odd reason, they’re making a comeback and people are wearing them out in public.

Sneaker Wedges

Sneaker wedges have never looked good. Wedges are iffy for some, but sneaker wedges should be universally hated. Just go for being comfortable and throw on a good pair of sneakers!

Pointless Statement Tees

We love statement tees that are actually for something. "Future is Female"? You know it! Shirts that say something like “I love tacos” are absolutely unnecessary. Good for you? Congratulations?

Bralette Tops

Bralettes can look great under a top, and it can add an extra little touch to an outfit. However, bralettes as tops? No. It’s basically like wearing your bra or a bikini top everywhere – it’s tacky and shouldn’t be done.

Detachable Jeans

What situation would create the necessity for someone to detach their jeans? There is no reason. Plus, anyone wearing them looks like they’re wearing a combination between a diaper and chaps.

Super Long Hair

Hair is beautiful whether it’s long or short, thick or thing. However, super long hair crosses over into cat-lady territory. Whether it’s natural or hair extensions, a person’s hair shouldn’t be so long that they almost sit on it.

Chacos

Chacos are another hiking gear that’s made its way into everyday life. Is it great for hiking? Yes. Is it great for shopping? Maybe, but that doesn’t mean it’s right. Plus, the straps cause blisters – we all know it.

Camo Pants

All jokes aside about how camo makes someone invisible, it’s weird to wear it out in public. They don’t look great unless you’re wearing it as a hobby or profession -- fashion-wise, they're a bad decision.

Fancy PJs

Pajamas are for bed and the house. They’re not for going out to dinner or wearing to school or work. It doesn’t matter if they’re made of silk – it just looks sloppy.

Birkenstocks

Birckenstocks are pretty comfortable, but it’s like wearing a house slipper or flipflop out – it’s just not flattering. There are shoes on the market that don’t sacrifice comfort.

Pants Under Dresses

Pants and dresses are two different clothing pieces that should be worn separately, but for some reason, people wear them together. Leggings and dresses are fine since we’re not sure if they’re really pants or not.

Destroyed Jeans

Distressed jeans can be stylish and great to wear. However, if it looks like someone were mauled by a bear while wearing jeans, it’s time for a change. Little holes we can accept, but this is just far too ridiculous.
