Some fashion trends are classic and make complete sense – neutral colors, turtlenecks, and basic pumps, for instance – but some are just bizarre. These seven fashion trends not only don’t make sense now, but they didn’t even make sense when they were in style. Check them out for yourself below.
Number Seven: Daisy Dukes. Who loves short shorts? Almost nobody loves short shorts. Seriously, daisy dukes not only give passersby a nice view of your butt cheeks, but they look bad on almost everybody. Sure, we’re all about wearing what you want, but these shorts barely even qualify as clothing.
Number Six: Tulle Skirts. Are you a ballerina? No? OK, then you shouldn’t be wearing this. Not only will fluffy tulle skirts completely disguise your figure, but they will also blow you up, making you look like an oversized kindergartner at her first dance recital. Leave these to die in Wet Seal.
Number Five: Lace Tights. Lace tights have their time and place. In the bedroom, lace tights can be a sexy way to spice things up. In public, however, they are utterly impractical and may even make your skin look diseased. Not to mention that it takes just the tiniest snag to rip them. Ripped tights can be sexy, but ripped lace tights scream street walker. Wear at your own risk.
Number Four: Boleros. Is it a cardigan? Is it a crop top? Oh, it’s a piece of fabric that just makes you look bulky? Cool. Boleros not only don’t make sense, but they don’t even serve a purpose! Does that look like it’s going to keep you warm? No – it looks like a blind person hacked up your grandmother’s afghan and tried to pass it off as a piece of clothing. Pass.
Number Three: Capris. Capris are not a finished piece of clothing. Seriously, where is the other half of this woman’s pants?! Cuffed jeans can be professional and sexy, but half-jeans? Nope. Just, nope.
Number Two: Harem Pants. On the other side of the spectrum, here we have way, way too much pants. Are you hiding a cat in your harem pants? Because you should be. These are either a genius storage alternative or the worst way to say “I need a diaper.” Avoid at all costs.
Number One: Pointy Nails. It’s true – Rihanna and Kylie Jenner can really rock the long, pointy nails. But guess what? Rihanna and Kylie Jenner have an entire team of stylists attending to their every need. Do you have that? Didn’t think so. Long, pointy nails are highly impractical and will stop you from doing almost anything, save acting like a cat with perpetually extended claws. If you do go for this look, try glue-on nails so you can take them off the next day.
