The 2018 Fashion Trends Everyone Needs To Stop Wearing

Fashion trends come and go. F*cking duh. That’s what makes fashion generally so interesting, enticing, and well, fun. You never know what’s going to be worn on the runways or be photographed on a Kardashian next. Really, it should be a drinking game by now. It could be something cute (and normal-looking) like a midi floral dress or it can be something fugly af like Balenciaga’s crocs. Although each year has brought us many unforgettable trends we’d proudly wear out in public, even we can’t lie to ourselves and think all of them are still relevant today. Honestly, some of the things we’re wearing in 2018 are hideous, and quite frankly, like, need to die asap. There’s a reason why we cringe when we look back at our old Facebook pictures. Here are 7 of the worst fashion trends that just need to die for once and for all. I MEAN IT.

1. Jorts and Bike Shorts

I am literally trying to think of one good thing about either of these things and I can’t. I feel like we should just stick to jeans or denim shorts—nothing in between. In fact, anything that covers your bottom half above the knee that isn’t a skirt or a dress should probs just GTFO.

2. Groutfits

Wear this on your couch for hours on end while you nurse a bad hangover, I don’t care. But unless you want to commit social suicide, I advise that you refrain from wearing any gray on gray outfit outside. Not even to the grocery store or local postal office. Just…no.

3. Colored Lenses

Hey guys I missed you ????????????‍♀️❤

IDK we’re just not in the ’70s anymore and while in that decade these may have been poppin’, they’re just no longer necessary in this day and age. Do these even block out the sun? I mean, is there a real purpose for masking your eyes in yellow or bright pink lenses? Someone LMK.

4. Chunky Dad Sneakers

Don’t get me wrong, I love a good sneaker that is both trendy and comfortable, but this style has got to leave as quickly as it entered the Instagram sphere. Not only are they super out there, but they’re literally not even cute. Nope. Not even a little, so I can’t even give you the benefit of the doubt.

5. Crocs & Birkenstocks

The resurgence of Crocs and Birks was one of the worst fashion trends we saw this year. I might be incredibly biased; I just really effing hate both of these styles. I feel like they were created for the sole purpose of becoming viral memes and that is it. I don’t see any attractive aspect about either of them, tbh. And like, okay, so they’re comfortable. Great. Wonderful. The thing is, there are plenty of other comfortable shoes that are equally as chic as they are comfy, and for probs half the price.

6. Vinyl/Latex Anything

I don’t get how wearing this can be even slightly comfortable, so I guess that reasoning is out the window. Sure, the material accentuates your curves, which is always a plus, and it makes you look like a sexy badass, but unless you’re a model, I bet it makes you feel like an un-sexy sausage. Hard f*cking pass. When I die, bury me in…anything but a latex dress.

7. Transparent Shoes

Thanks, but no thanks, Ye. These were cute in the sense that I thought the “trend” would last a good 24 hours, like it was a cold going around or something. It did not think it would last for many months. Feet are weird in general and looking at scrunched toes (painted or not painted) in stilettos is even weirder. Something tells me wearing sweaty plastic heels all night cannot be good or sanitary for your toes. Girl, bye.
