Beauty/Fashion Trends That Should Have Never Happened

I have never been one to fully immerse myself into the most extravagant trends that come about every once in a while. I would describe my style as classy rather than trendy because sometimes… trends scare me. If I’m uneasy about a new trend, I always trust that gut feeling and don’t give into it. Simply put, I have seen WAY too many cringey fashion fails that turned popular. Here are a few that I just can't wrap my head around. 

 

  1. Low-Rise Jeans - Okay, I understand that it was a way to show off a little bit more skin, but I can honestly say that I don’t think this style of jean looks good on anyone. Britney Spears? Nope. Paris Hilton? Nope. Literally anyone? Nope. This style makes your torso look longer, hips look wider (not in a good way), and it shows off your lower ab area (that I call the pooch) which, let’s be honest ladies, is REALLY hard to perfect unless you go to the gym 24/7. Sorry Britney, but I’ll stick to my mid-rise or high-rise jeans that show off the smallest part of my waist.

 

2. Jersey Shore Tan - I can vividly remember the sound of my mom yelling at my older sisters when they were in high school to stop going to the tanning beds because they were starting to look orange. Sure, everyone feels a little better once they’ve got a sun-kissed glow, but there was a short period of time where everyone got obsessed with tanning. It got to a point where it looked like all high school and college girls had just gone outside and rolled in dirt.

 

3. 90’s Hair - There are so many things I could say for this one. I mean, the list goes on and on; a zig-zag part, butterfly clips, FROSTED TIPS?! Just why?

 

4. Sharpie Eyebrows - This is a more recent one, but right away I knew it was something people were going to regret. Just ask James Charles how big of a fail this trend was. We love a good brow, but this trend got SO out of hand and made it look like people had two bricks on their face.  

 

5. Sequins on Everything - I’m all for adding a little sparkle to your outfit, but why on Earth did we feel the need to put cheap-looking sequins and sparkles on everything in the mid-2000s? We had bedazzled jean pockets, accessories, and so much more that it was just unnecessary. Don’t even try to tell me you didn’t have one of these purses when you were younger.
