Trends Better Off Dead

Ever wish you could resurrect defunct trends like wet curls or Jnco’s? Probably not. Just because society collectively thought it cool to purposefully grease-ify hair or wear pants cut so wide they could fit four limbs in each leg, doesn’t mean it was a good idea. Hence the thinking behind Vice’s latest “Modern Day Fashion Bum-outs,” or “Today’s Trends Are Tomorrow’s Giggles.” From fake skin to good hygiene, Vice guides us through the most bizarre fashion trends taking place today that will likely disappear before next season.

That said, I’d like to take issue with a few new styles surfacing on fashion blogs around the Interweb that I believe should have been left for dead long before they made it through production. First off: the lace bell bottom. Just like no-pants, the cut is flattering for maybe 0.001% of body types. So, if you’re not Erin Wasson or Lou Doillon, there’s little chance in hell you’ll have any success pulling this look off. Also gravely disappointing, the resurgence of the cargo pant. And I’m not just talking about among frat boys. Apparently everyone from Balmain to J. Brand have embraced the 90s style for spring. But, why? Just for the sake of having more pockets? It’s right up there with socks with sandals.
