Less than 48 hours and we will be ringing in 2011! The fashion industry had some very successful trends this year! However, there are several trends in 2010 that I am hoping will not resurface in the new year. Check out the trends below to see what made my list for "worst fashion trends of 2010." What's on your list? Please leave a comment and share what trends you don't want to see repeated in 2011!
#10 – The Graphic Legging
Punky Brewster called to say she wants her leggings back. The fashion craze for leggings took a wrong turn this year when they introduced leggings with graphics and prints. Best to stick with solid colors. This way you avoid looking like a walking night light.
#9 – The High Waisted Short
Every time I see a woman wearing high waisted shorts I can't help but envisioning Chrissy from the late -70's sitcom "Three's Company". Not sure who's bright idea it was to bring back this short, it's too dated looking to be worn circa now.
#8 Long Feather Earrings
This look may have worked on Kim Cattrall in Sex and the City 2 but in real life it looks like you swallowed a bird and the feathers are coming out of your ears. I am thinking about starting a "no feather left behind" campaign. I could become an advocate for all the poor defenseless little birds who have suffered at the hands of fashion.
#6 – The Straw Fedora
It might be confusing for some as to why the straw fedora is on my "worst fashion list" but, I must confess my dislike for it. Most of the time I see this trend the hat doesn't fit the wearer's head entirely. It kind of just hangs out on top of their head, looking like an upscale birds nest with a satin ribbon wrapped around it. This ill fitting hat was a summer staple piece for many celebrities and their children. It definitely belongs on my list as the worst over-exposed trend of 2010.
#5 – Ed Hardy T-shirts (Men)
Fellas, no one is fooled in your attempt to look like a tough-guy by wearing an Ed Hardy skull t-shirt. The t-shirt is adorned with flowers and bedazzled jewels for Heaven's sake. Let this trend go, it's only appropriate for men starring in a Vegas magic shows.
#4 – Fur necklaces
This trend should come as no surprise, being that I am not a fan of real fur. Wearing a piece of fur attached to a chain is one step away from wearing a dog leash around your neck.
#3 – Converse Extensions
Where do I even begin?! I can't decide what's more disturbing the fact that a designer actually designed these or that someone actually wore them. This is a bad look all around.
#2 – Open Toe Tall Boots
One of the worst trends of 2010 and possibly the decade are the open toe tall boots. Oh, how I cringe at the very sight of these boots. I had the pleasure of witnessing several women wearing a similar style without the slightest thought of a pedicure. I mean come on ladies…if you are going wear this hideous looking boot the least you could do is clip and paint your toe nails.
#1 – Jeggings for Men
Like you didn't know this would earn the #1 spot on my "worst fashion trends of 2010 list." I'll never get weary in expressing my detest for this nightmare look on men. If you're still on the fence about this trend being a good idea please refer to my previous post: Men Step away from the jeggings.
