Fashion is curious. It’s always changing, yet always recalling trends from the past. It is a vacuum, it is omnipresent, it is Lady Gaga, Naomi Campbell, and Billy Porter. Fashion lives in all of us. It is the moment.
And as we learned through IKEA bags in 2017, fashion can be anything.
But do we want it to be anything?
To many Redditors, no.
Recently, a Redditor asked, “What is a fashion trend you hate?”
And the forum went wild. Below are 20 of the best responses.
1. Short jackets
Women’s jackets that stop just above the bottom rib. When I’m wearing a jacket, I’m wearing it because I’m COLD, not as a fashion statement!
2. Wide shirts
2x or 3x that is only wide, not long.
Big and TALL f**kers! You forget the tall part.
3. Dumb slogans
Clothes that are cute until you look up close and the back says something stupid like “but first, coffee”
4. Short long sleeves
Long sleeves on women’s clothing that are too short. Most long sleeves end well before my wrist and a few inches past my elbow. I’m not exactly Queen of the Long-Armed Amazons! I end up pushing the sleeves up on everything because I look like a kid after a growth spurt whose clothes no longer fit properly. WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE WITH IMPOSSIBLY SHORT ARMS?
5. Stain magnets
Making employees wear clothes that are easily stained.
6. Sheer lunacy
As a woman, sheer shirts and dresses. I don’t want to have to wear a cami under every damn shirt!
7. Fake pockets
Fake f**king pockets? To hell with them I say
8. Cheap crap
Most women’s clothing products are thin and aren’t quality, if I’m paying for a $40 shirt I’d expect it to not be see through or shred up in the wash.
9. Pinched crotches
Ahhhh i hate pants with a small crotch. It always ends up smashing my balls. Who thought that was a good idea.
10. Wearing billboards
Large logos. Ralph Lauren is the worst. I’ll see a shirt I like with an oversized polo man. It ruins the shirt.
11. Hometown pride
[CITY] vs EVERYBODY
12. Missing pieces
For me it’s when you pull it out to reveal that it has no back or it’s a crop sweatshirt or something
13. Faux fur faux pas
I’m not a fan of those wide panel sandals with the fur / fake fur over it. They look like you’re wearing slippers out in public…
14. Square shirts
SQUARE SHIRTS, THEY LOOK SO BAD ON ME!!.. I used to like to shop at this place because they had really nice material shirts for cheap, but I grew taller and now I despise the place because they only sell square shirts. I just want to find a shirt that won’t make me look like I’m wearing a box!
Stickers on hats
16. Busty blues
Sick and tired of cropped clothing, so many shirts these days are made to pair with high waisted pants. As someone with a large bust, I find they just ride up and expose too much even if I have high-waisted jeans. I just want regular length shirts!!
17. “Clothes for my clothes”
Crop sweaters make no sense to me. At least crop tops are meant to be worn in the summer time. They at least make sense for the season, but crop sweaters? What? I just want to be warm. wEaR a TaNk ToP uNdEr It. That’s stupid. I’m not buying clothes for my clothes.
18. Creepy undies
That men’s underwear with “Addicted” printed on the waistband. Addicted to what, the wearer or paying too much for skivvies? Seriously creeps me out.
19. Body modification
Treating the human body as a fashion trend. Plumped up lips, fox eyes, labial trimming, butt implants… just let bodies be bodies. Change the clothing, the make up, but surgery for fashion really grinds my gears.
20. TikTok leggings
Those leggings from tiktok that have that scrunch in the asshole, so they literally suck into your ass crack. I hate it.
