Trends That Must Die. Spring 2010

January 25, 2010 • Fashion

I’m about to present to you some disturbing images and I want you to shield any eyes that are easily influenced. I will not be responsible for any future spawning of these trends and I hope to nip anyone’s intentions of reviving these fashion faux pas for Spring 2010.

With that being said, I would like to present to you the first trend that I absolutely detest and that is socks and sandals. The only reason these two things should go together is if: you missed your pedicure appointment or you have more than five toes on one foot. To be quite honest with you, I would prefer to see the extra appendage than to see this ghastly pairing.

Secondly, the double dipping of denim; a head-to-toe eyesore that needed to stay and die in 80’s. I know you think I’m harsh and I should be a little more open-minded since fashion is about self-expression but what are you trying to express here? Your undying love for Levis Strauss?

If it didn’t work last year it’s not going to work this year! I’m glad someone else agrees.

And finally, the camouflage look. This print sole purpose is to make it harder for an enemy to take you down in a wilderness setting. So may I ask why would you want to make it easier for fashion snipers to spot you in our urban jungle?


 Looks like this guy doesn’t appreciate her ensemble either.

Well that pretty much sums up my pet peeves for Spring 2010. I hope I made a strong case against these trends and maybe save a few lost souls from falling into these fashion pitfalls.
