Jeans that are so tight they cannot be pulled up over the butt, so they are worn below the ass so that your underwear is entirely exposed.
I nominate obese offspring of famous athletes wearing faux fur, carrying a purse on bent arm...
thug and bro
Big fake breasts.
White women with inflated injected lips
Long, fake nails
My top 3.
Wearing super tight tee shirts stretched over pregnant bellies instead of a nice maternity top.
Tattoos. And I can't believe I'm the first person to give that answer.
Skin tight Juicy Couture stretchy drawstring pants worn over fat asses, accompanied by huge ugly suede 'Uggs' and peachy/coral lipstick.
When was obesity a fashion/beauty trend?
It's a trend R16. Let's just go with that.
Piercings, especially on the face.
Acid-washed denim with big frizzy permed hair circa 1989.
The ghetto fabulous "trend"
Another awful '80s trend: mens' acrylic sweaters in garish "color blocks" (think Cliff Huxtable)
Not necessarily a trend but women whose toes hang over the front edge of their shoes.
Ladies, if that happens it means your shoes are too small.
I'd agree that tattoos are the worst, especially on very young people like Harry Styles who have disfigured their bodies.
On a more easily correctable note, I'm not crazy about ombre hair. It looks like you're badly in need of a touch-up or a tint-back. So odd that L'Oreal has introduced an ombre kit now that it's no longer trendy.
This look. It takes a great butt to pull it off (and even then...)
Gold chains worn outside of a turtleneck on a man.
Braided leather belts that are too big so a long piece hangs down.
That's late 80's I guess.
I think huge afros were pretty fugly on 70's black men, yet outrageously sexy on black women.
[quote]Jeans that are so tight they cannot be pulled up over the butt, so they are worn below the ass so that your underwear is entirely exposed.
That look is because the pants are too loose, not too tight.
And I agree baggy pants are the worst look. It looks like a toddler dressed you.
tattoos. that was easy.
Flares were pretty darned ugly, denim flares even worse.
I've finally had to begin lying to sex partners that I have a fully clothed fetish because tattoos were such a boner killer.
Qiana polyester shirts
Platform shoes for men
Mohawks were ridiculous but fauxhawks don't even have the courage to be bold.
I love Nehru jackets and platform shoes
I stopped wearing platform shoes in 1973, and went back to Topsiders. If only I could take back the fashion mistakes of 1967-1974.
"White women with inflated injected lips"
The official term is "trout pout"
I do hate hipster nautical, with the moustaches and striped shirts. Theme park bullshit.
Ankle-hugging super skinny jeans on men, please GO AWAY!
reply 22 Ya!
The prairie dress that Midwest Christian hausfraus seem to favor
Botox and fillers.
"grills" on teeth.
Shirt-tail out with sweater or jacket over.
The mullet hair and dress.
Colored leather clothing.
Long hair on older women.
Everyone wearing black ALL THE TIME, especially casually. But also evening wear. It was probably elegant once, in small doses.
Also the very baggy jeans with the underwear showing and the rest of the shit that goes with that look.
50 years? The last 15 years is all we need for this topic.
...& to think people today, snigger at the '70s.
The '70s had their own very ugly clothing, R46. No better, maybe worse.
Those horrible platform shoes which make feet look like horse hooves.
This style is particularly ugly on short women with stumpy legs. They look grotesque. This style is more suited to an S&M outfit, than everyday wear.
Fashionistas are obessesed with anything which is 'different', no matter how painful the style is to wear, they will suffer to be different.
Here's a variation on the animal hooves look.
track suits as street wear, granny track suits, velour track suits
plaid trousers - watch [italic]Slap Shot[/italic] if you want to see this ugly 70s trend
The 70s had far fewer fashion crimes than the 80s or today.
And grunge was not that bad, come on. Loose flannel? Combat boots? Big deal. It still doesn't look that bad today.
And band t-shirts? You got a problem with band t-shirts? Fuck off and die, prisspot @ R45. Some days I wanna show some love for Thin Lizzy, and I don't give a fuck what you think.
I thought most fashions-both male and female-were pretty shitty from 1971 to '75. Remember shag haircuts? I remember the polyester look was from that timIe period, I had to get a polyester suit for a cousin's wedding.
I love my platform heels. So sue me. I wear them with my white girl 'fro.
Cannot STAND that stupid pants on the ground idiocy. When will that trend just DIE?
Thanks, R28. Glad that the contents of my stomach consist of of a solitary slice of toast. Someone should tell the sci-fi geeks that the four-breasted intergalactic visitors they fantasize about have arrived.
Since I'm a geezer, I offer up this smorgasbord of warmed-over 70s fashion horrors.
Caeser haircuts on men with super tight, lycra blend t-shirts a la Simon Cowell in clubs. (90's)
Leggings worn as pants. Camel toe city, I don't care how skinny you are.
The mullet is the worst haircut ever created.
Acid Washed jeans.
Headbands a la Olivia Newton John.
Pucci rip off designs.
Yoga pants on fraus. That's a recent one.
CROCS CROCS CROCS
Acid washed jeans
Socks and sandals
Sun Dresses and Cowboy Boots
Any kind of dress and Cowboy Boots
Vera Bradley Quilted Bags
99% of the sh*t on the home shopping networks
can't stand the modern rockabilly look.
[quote}& to think people today, snigger at the '70s.
Gee, I wonder why?
Am I the only one who thinks contemporary "cutaway" men's suits are an abomination? Given how slowly these things evolve, and my age, I may never own a new suit again. I cringe every time a man moves his arms and the bottom of his tie pops out to say hello.
weightlifting, tanning, tattooing
This goes back a little more than 50 years, but Mamie Eisenhower bangs were a hideous look from the 50s and early 60s. You see a lot of girls with this look in old yearbooks - it makes even pretty girls look frumpy as hell.
The HUGE bouffants from the 60s were another unflattering look.
The muttonchop sideburns of the late 60s and 70s also made people look fug
Speaking of the People of Walmart pic, why are women wearing too small pants now? I've also noticed that jeans now have waistlines that sit low instead of at the natural waist which you cannot wear well unless you are very thin.
