Day 12 - Top Five Trends/Styles You Abhor

Ok, if you've been following this spontaneous challenge then you're thinking: What? Day 12? My cousin AJ, who is my partner in this challenge, sent me a message asking if we could just skip to day 12 because "all the ones in between are lame". I'm already a day or two behind for various reason so he was not getting any argument here.

So on to Day 12.

I am not a trendy person. I'm not saying there have not been trends I like, there have been plenty. But I'm not a trendy person. I don't "get" how a lot of stuff can even be popular. But I don't have to. One celebrity sports it and it's all over the place and people are willing to pay money for something that will be at the bottom of their closet or out of style in a few months. However "abhor" is not the word I'd use when describing how I feel about them. They don't make me angry, I don't necessarily hate them. I just don't like them and do not prefer them for myself.

1. High heels with shorts. Really? I've never once looked at a pair of shorts I own or wanted to buy and thought "I need a great pair of stilettos to go with these". Nope, not for me.

And while we're talking about footwear...

2. Shoes like this:
They're just plain ugly and sort of ridiculous looking.

3. High-waist pants. Maybe it's because I'm kind of a bigger girl so stuff like that would be the very opposite of flattering on me. But I've seen them on smaller girls too...and I pretty much think it's ugly on anyone.

4. Ombre highlights. I don't understand paying money for something that looks like your roots grew out too much and you've just been too lazy to get them fixed. I think this was a lazy celebrity trend that they decided to slap a name on and try to get people to pay for it.

5. Men/boys wearing exceptionally baggy pants. It's ridiculous when a guy actually has to walk differently because their pants are really around their thighs rather than their waist. Or when they have to hold them up while they walk. They obviously have no idea how stupid they look...and no one in their life who's a good enough person to tell them. Almost as bad: men wearing skinny jeans.
