I get torn about trends.. I like to see what’s “in style” so I can pick at it and apply it to my personal tastes. Which I’m sure many will find completely questionable. I think there was a jumper I reeeeeally wanted at Christmas and everyone was like, no. Just no 😅
On the other side of the coin, I also hate to see everyone conforming to the same styles/colours/rules. But there are some trends that I honestly think everyone should avoid like the plague. They’re not cute, they’re ugly, they’re ridiculous.
I’ve tried to narrow it down to the top 5 that annoy me the most. But there are honestly SO MANY that this could have been a 6 page essay.
Anyways, here’s my top 5 trends that I think should stay in 2017 and be burned when the year is over.
Who the hell comes up with this stuff? I know fashion is about pushing the boundaries and making a statement. But it seems to me that these new trends are done by someone who is clearly bored, hoping that it will go viral and give them their 15 minutes of fame.
We’ve had everything from feather brows, plaited brows, squiggly brows, feather brows, barbed wire brows and now we’ve got triple brows. They don’t look good.. they are hideous and they’re stupid. What the fuck is wrong with regular human eyebrows?
Please remove them from your face and leave them on the makeup wipe, in the bin, where they belong.
Another “15 minutes of fame” thing that’s been doing the rounds.. and it just gets weirder and weirder.
Hair nails, aquarium nails, menstrual nails, fur nails, pom pom nails and vagina nails (yes, really).. I mean why would you walk around with a bunch of vulva’s on the ends of your fingers?! I just don’t get it. If you really want to make a statement you may as well print a big fanny on a t-shirt and wear that instead. Don’t go sculpting tiny axe wounds in your nails, it’s weird.
Besides – how are any of these practical? You can wash the dishes with pom poms on your nails can ya?
A festival trend that has reared it’s head this year and I’m a little torn about because I’m all for glitter.. I would sprinkle that shit on my breakfast cereal if I wasn’t concerned I would shred my internal organs. But we all know that this stuff gets EVERYWHERE. It’s just like sand, but even more stubborn to get rid of. I think I used some glitter for a Halloween costume one year and found it in my hair 6 months later.
I’m telling you, if you slap it on your butt it will work it’s way forward and you will be pulling glitter from your hoohah and arse crack for the next 6 months. It is not meant for your armpits, arse or tits. For your sanity – please stick to putting glitter on your face and chest.
We’ve had 100 layers of foundation, liquid lipstick, mascara, nail polish, hairspray, fake tan and even false eyelashes. The list is literally endless and is a stupid, pointless and extremely time consuming trend.
This is clearly a click bait thing for YouTube views and it worked very well. But it’s time to stop it and leave it in 2017, never ever to be seen or done again.
This one in particular really bothers me, because it’s just downright fucking dangerous. It can cause serious damage to your lips (some peoples have even burst from the pressure they create), they cause major redness and nasty painful bruises that can last for weeks.. not to mention the HIDEOUS trout pout that you are pretty much guaranteed to get and are left with for days on end. The Leslie Ash look is never a good one ladies and gents.
You will absolutely not get nicely plumped up Kylie Jenner lips from using these and nor should you try to aspire to an aesthetic that is pretty much completely un-achievable. The only way you will ever get lips like that is to get fillers from a professional (if you felt it really necessary) or to do it the way the non-surgical way – overlining. Which if done right can look really good, cause you no injury or internal bleeding and costs nothing.
Are there any others that you think should go on the list? There are many! But it’s impossible to cover them all.. so let me know your favourite trend to hate in the comments below!
