With every New Year comes a new trend…and with every new trend comes a new extreme. Unfortunately, 2017 came with a handful of dreadful, unnecessary, and even dangerous trends that are difficult for me to wrap my head around. Below you will find my top ten!
- Over-Plumping Lips:
Lip injections, fine. Not everyone is born with Angelina Jolie lips. But since when are ducks a desirable beauty and fashion trend? I’m sorry, Kylie, but no.
- Super Cropped Tops:
This includes the ever-so-lovely Under Boob. There are different levels to the crop top, from sexy and done-right to ‘is she just wearing a bra’? This is one level that must GO. Buh-bye.
- Crazy Contouring:
Or should I say crazy clowning? These pictures are real. No joke.
- These Boots:
I don’t care if they’re made by Yeezy, they sure are making me queasy.
- Fake Glasses:
Only wear them if you need them! If you’re trying to ‘look smarter’, then go buy a book and carry it around with you. Better yet, buy a stethoscope and wear it as a necklace!
- This Man bun:
Again, different levels to a man bun. Go for sexy and stylish, not shapeless and scary (Sorry, Leo).
- Almond Shaped Acrylic Nails:
Am I the only person that finds these insanely unattractive…and dangerous?!
- Mom Jeans:
I have yet to find them attractive on anyone. Ever.
- Tank Top Over Shirt Combo:
I know Cher and Dionne could rock it…but you can’t. This is one 90’s comeback that should have never come back.
- Oversized Tee and Running Shorts (that are hidden?):
I REALLY don’t understand this one. I have only seen this since I moved to Texas, so don’t know if this is a Southern college girl thing. I don’t get it…it couldn’t be less attractive if you tried. At least shopping in your dad’s closet is a lot cheaper than at Nordstrom!
