Style trends you've happily skipped


Yes, these. They're popular right now and I cannot for the life of me understand why. It's like Great Depression chic or something. And it gets better: apparently, you wear these with skinny jeans that are rolled up at the bottom to look like high-waters.


What the living fuck?

What style trends have you skipped?

Graphic t-shirts... and not just the high priced Guido Gear (TM).

I feel that paying $40 for a mass produced torso covering with an asymmetric barbed wire/wings/chains/skulls print is a lousy idea.

Paying more than $20 for a t-shirt is stupid. I was incredibly disheartened to discover that a Misfits logo is to be found on an Affliction brand t-shirt.

The style that is particular to engineering students, which, if you are an engineering student or know any, you know what I'm talking about. Poorly fitting jeans, quasi generic sneakers, sweatshirts with the logo of your alma mater, the same haircut since 8th grade, etc...

For the record: if you care even remotely about style and/or give half a thought to how you look when you leave the house, someone, somewhere thinks that you're a hipster.

I'm safe. My wardrobe has consisted of nothing but pocket tees, Levi's and boots for the last decade. Well, occasionally, if it's nasty hot, like it is now, I'll wear a tank, cargo shorts and sandals for working outside if possible.

actually...no. my ladies would never be caught in that state of dress.

but if you did want a harem, it's quite easy to organise. I could do it at a fee if you promised not to call me a pimp.



on a side note, the hammer pants are very similar to the traditional lebanese wear that were introduced by the ottomons.

Glad noodle caught it. I had a Hypercolor shirt, and Hypercolor socks. Those were really cool.

Definitely did neon.

I dunno, sometime in high school I stopped paying attention to what other people liked to wear and started paying attention to what I liked to wear. This usually consisted of gray slacks, some pair of funky shoes (I have some blue suede Hush Puppies, for example), a funny t-shirt, and a black cardigan.

If I wear something fashionable, it's likely just because I liked the look of it or thought it would be comfy. If it isn't comfy, I'm not interested.

I skipped the tightrolled jeans trend, but I'll be honest, it was more because I couldn't get mine tight enough...I just looked like I was getting ready for a flood.

I'm also proud to say that, with the exception of a spiral perm in junior high, I've had basically the same hairstyle since I was eight. I skipped the "big hair," the "jennifer aniston" cut, and the "color the underside of your hair a drastically different color than the rest." Although I WILL admit to playing around with my hair color when I have the money.

I'm going to let you in on a secret: everyone that wears tight rolled jeans looks like they're getting ready for a flood. They also make you look like a member of the Breakfast Club, and not in a good way.

What the living fuck?

What style trends have you skipped?

Desert Boots are back? Used to be THE shoe to buy back in the '70's and again in the '80's because they were less than $30 and therefore had no sales tax.

I skipped the designer jeans thing (i.e. Jordache etc) and the wide Legs jeans during high school. Stuck with Levi's reg fit. I WISH that I skipped the double breasted suit era of 1994 through 98.

Can't agree more. Our 17 yr old looks like this. Doesn't believe she looks horrible.
I've taken photos so I can shame her at some future family christmas dinner.

Oh I'm with BG and Fugly on this one, I'm so fashion retarded its not even funny...hell I struggle to even get my clothes to match. I think I've looked exactly the same for about 15 years so I've probably been accidentally in line with the latest fashions but beyond that...I couldn't even hope to tell you what men's fashion is right now.

"white trash chic" that's funny...and disturbingly accurate of my own fashion sense.

In terms of hair, I've always disliked the style that I think was first popularlized by Paris Hilton (I could be wrong). It's best described as that style in which the woman has somehow made a bubble of hair on the top of her head.

It always had me asking to myself, how long did she take to get that to work in such a way that it stays like that all day?

I skipped distressed jeans. The hundred dollar washed with a bunch of sharp rocks, torn, and finished with sandpaper look. I do have a couple pair of ten year old, naturally worn, wonderfully soft Levi's. But they are the real thing.
I will admit to washing new jeans a couple of times before wearing them, even with a little Clorox maybe.

I also dislike and don't participate in the faux poverty look in general, or the silly faux prison hip-hop style.
Having been poor, the idea of suburban kids and gentrified urbanites ( who wouldn't be caught dead in a thrift store) spending hundreds of dollars to look poor does not make sense to me.

Sheesh, talk about the high cost of living. It's even expensive to look poor.

Comfort rules with me too. And if you're true to yourself, you're always in style.

A fashionista is really nothing but a lemming in clothes.

I guess a better way to describe it would be a female pompadour, which I guess is redundant because I think it was originally a female hairdo. It's variations on this:
