The Most Annoying Fashion Trends

As you all already know from posts like Do The Cat Walk, I have zero fashion sense.
It was just this year that I decided to try to develop a sense of style.
I still rock my jeans and a t-shirt more than anything though.  Shh, don't tell Peaches!
The past couple of months I spent cleaning out my wardrobe's junk and adding new treasures.

After a lot of work and loads of help, I finally found my fashion niche.
I'm almost as chic as this styling turtle now.


Finding my fashion sense wasn't all about stumbling across the perfect additions to my closet.
It was mostly picking up garments and giving them the WTF look.
That's when Peaches gave me the bright idea of deciding what trends I really disliked.
Now, that's an assignment that I could with no problem!

Here are a list of the top 5 WORST fashion trends according to Jax.
I apologize in advance if you rock one of these trends.  It's nothing personal!




1.  No Pants
For the love of God, when did girls decide to stop wearing pants???
Just because Lady Gaga gets away with baring all, doesn't mean that my eyes should be subjected to you doing it too!!  Please put your pants back on.
And, no, a long shirt barely covering your hoo-hah doesn't cut it either!




2.  Man Uggs
Ok, Ben, I know that the lovely Tom Brady is promoting them, but take OFF the m-uggs.
I can not take men seriously that wear Uggs.  I just can't do it.
Not only do they look ridiculous and awkward, but they look 100x worse in a suit.
This makes me glad that I've never owned nor even tried on a pair of Uggs.




3.  Hair Feathers
This is one trend that I never understood.
While some ladies managed to pull it off nicely, I still couldn't help but picture them as a giant peacock.  With long, colorful feathers in your hair, what did you expect?
Who first looked at a feather and thought "I want that on my head" anyways?  Steven Tyler?




4.  Floppy Hat
Any RHONJ fans out there who saw Teresa Guidice give a verbal lashing dressed like above?
I get that these umbrellas on your head serve as a practical instrument to block the sun from your skin and eyeballs.  I don't get how you are able walk knowing that you have that big, floppy thing sitting up there.  The giant hat is a big no no for me.




5.  The Poof
Living minutes away from Snooki's hometown, do you have ANY idea how many poofs I've endured?! 
 I get that you're short, but there is no way that poof ball on the top of your head is going to help.  Trust me, I only got like 2 inches on Snooki, and it don't work.  It just looks absolutely ridiculous.

What fashion trends irk you?

  1. Three quarter length pants on blokes, I can't stand them. It's as though men who wear them can't make up their minds to wear either long trousers or shorts.

    1. Ohh, that is noted!! I'm not a fan of those either. It's like, dude, just pick! hahahaha

  2. Love this post, but you cant use the obvious fashion criminals like Lady Gaga in this. And Snookie? really? really? I heard that her DNA results are pending so till they are out, we cant know which filthy planet she is from and her brain is from.
    Fashion Criminals like Fergie, MIA could have earned a spot in this post.
    Lady Gaga - you can put her name and fashion in same sentence.

    1. LMAO...I just posted where the trends started. The "stars" that dress like that don't bother me. It's the people that try to copy them!! hahaha

      Delete
  3. Ha! I agree with these. And what about the whole shaggy boots in the summer that i kept seeing on the jersey shore last season? Ick.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. LOL Oh, that's pretty bad too. Jersey Shore should be banned just for it's introduction to awful fashion. ;)

      Delete
  4. the poof demands a serious amount of personal trashiness in order to be worn on one's head.
    Uggs are called uggs for being ugly :) I love high heels on my ladies and flip flops on my boys :)

    1. LMAO!! Oh, how I HATE the poof and everyone wears it here. So annoying!!!! The girl who works at the pizza place I go to is Snooki's twin. It's awful!

      Delete
    2. you did hear that Snooki is having a devil's spawn? The same date of birth with the one the Mayans announced as apocalypse.

      Delete
    3. I did hear that!! I can't wait to see how that turns out. Did she get her own spin off yet?? I'm so sick of the whole Jersey Shore nonsense. It's giving the REAL guidos and guidettes a bad rep. lol

      Delete
  5. LMAO oh I agree with all of them. I guess I have some fashion sense after all, or just know when something is truly bad. I never got the feather in the hair, it does just seem such a bother. I also got a weird look as I cracked up at the peacock remark..hahaha

    I HATE those hats, my god they annoy me. I just want to go whack those boats off their head..haha

    The poof seems like too much work for sure.

    See there are worse things than only owning one pair of sneakers, at least I don't own any of those man boots...hahaha and yeah no pants just screams attention whore or wannabe nudist. But if that is ones thing, I won't knock it too much.

    As far as what else annoys me, it tends to be hit or miss, some things work for some people, I suppose. But skin tight stuff on rather larger people, scary!..LOL

    Replies
    1. LMAO Oh, I got you some weird looks at work? That makes me VERY happy!!!! hahahaha But, really? what's with the damn feather?! LOL

      You should google that scene in RHONJ then. It was insane. The girl in the picture was screaming her head off at someone while dressed like that. I mean, how do you take someone seriously when they are dressed like that??? hahahaha

      Oh, the sneakers are up there, but it's certainly not as bad as the man uggs. For shame, Tom Brady, for shame!!!!!

      Delete
    2. Yeah some weird looks, especially when I made a face thinking about the feathers. As you know, as far as peacock feathers go at least, they almost always leave them off in their poo. That is right, many peacock feathers have been lodged in their own dung before people have used them, nasty.

      LMAO you pretty much don't take them seriously. How could you indeed. I'd be too busy either gawking or laughing or curling my nose up, or just a combination, depending on who it was..hahaha

      hahaha at least I top the man uggs, why would one ever wear those with a suit? Even I know that doesn't look right..haha

      Delete
    3. LMAO Really? In peacock poo? I don't even want to think about peacocks pooing. I'm not sure why, but in the simple mind of Jax, peacocks just didn't do that...LOL

      There is hope for you yet!!! Uggs and a suit and a man are a NO go. hahahahaha

      Delete
  6. I never understood those "Avatar" shoes from Alexander McQueen that one spring. They were so awkward looking and not hot at all

    1. Sigh...I'm with you on that one!

  7. Oh wow Uggs are bad.

    Living in the NE, mine is seasonal attire. It never fails that once we hit 50 degrees here, everyone seems to break out there too short shorts and cut-off t-shirts exposing lots of white flab. Perhaps, they should enact a local conditioning and tanning program so that we all would be spared from this horrible sight every year.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. White flab doesn't even sound attractive. LMAO Unforunately, I can relate ;) hahaha

      Delete
  8. Lol! I love your fashion misses; I totally agree.

    ReplyDelete
  9. I agree with all your fashion no-nos except the feather - love that. Wow, man-uggs!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes, some people love the feathers, others do not. Man uggs are the WORST. lol

      Delete
  10. haha I always love hearing about people's hate of trends because we all have them.

    Okay well hair feathers, I loved last summer. My hairdresser suggested them and I thought they were a cool idea- little did I know EVERYONE and their MOM was also rocking them. Once realizing that, I determined I didn't really care- i thought they were fun and reminded me of the goodness of summer. But I agree they were played out by Summer's end, even though I was happy to still sport them.

    I also just bought a huge puffy hat BUT only for the Kentucky Derby! So that's a pass :) But my friend and I spent enough money on it that we were like, okay- we better have like a faux tea party sometime too to justify the cost...

    I don't like the poof either but I used to do it in college a few times. I do however think it's cute on Snooki. But that's really because she just reminds me of a cartoon and not a real person.

    Safe to say I have never seen a man wear uggs like that. What I have seen is men in like male's slipper Ugg around Christmas or at a cabin, but I don't take issue with that as it just looks like a slipper! I dont know about the mid-calf look... hahaha.

    And the no-pants look! Who rocks that! Only a few crazy Hipsters I see downtown are guilty of that...

    What trends do I hate? Hmmm.... those circle glasses that remind me of John Lennon and in MOST cases, the shaving of the side of a girl's hair and keeping the rest long. Though I have seen a few girls who look bangin' in it but that's the exception, not the norm. And I think the grow-out is likely so ugly.

    But the biggest trend I hate is everything being described as "epic"- I just honestly can't take it! I don't know why.

    1. I just crack up all the way through this comment!!! I'll let the hat slide for the Kentucky derby. That is one of the 3 spots that I'll let the slide. hahahahaha

      LOL Ever see the Southpark episode of Snooki? Snooki Want Smush Smush. hahaha

      Those John Lennon glasses are awful too. I agree with that AND the word epic. Oh that word gives me the heebee geebees.

  11. I love huge hats. I don't see many of them here which is probably why I'm not annoyed with them.

    I hate Uggs on men OR women. They're ridiculous. If you aren't tredging through snow, take them off. People here wear them with skirts. Umm, no.

    I dislike crocs, neck scarves (the little neckerchiefs hipsters wear even when it's summer), leggings as pants, any shoe that looks like a boot, but is missing the toe or heel, and overly done manicures. Keep it classy ladies!

    1. You said it girl, keep it classy!!!! I HATE HATE HATE crocs. Why do they even exist?! Oh, I forgot about those. Thanks for reminding me. I'm intrigued to change this list to the 6 worst trends. lol

  12. that dude wearing the uggs looks like he knows deep down inside the joke's on him:)
    okay, here's a dumb guy question: what's the difference between a poof and a beehive hairstyle?
    last point, remember how years ago wearing socks with sandals was a high crime, and then it became totally fashionable. things can change. i'm just saying:)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. LMAO Oh, he has to know how silly he looks.

      A poof is a lot less exaggerated than the beehive. The beehive at least has some history, so I'll let that one go. But the poof, no. I mean, it's called a "poof" for crying out loud...LOL

      and I still hate the socks with sandals. Bleh. :)

      Delete
  13. I've gotta say, I agree with you completely on all of these.

    Except for no pants. That's fine by me.

    But man uggs? Ughh.

    1. You mean you won't be rocking man uggs???? Why not??? LOL

      And the no pants is just not ok!! For the love of God, put on a skirt at least if you want to feel "free". Sigh...lol

      Delete
  14. Oh, I really doubt you have "zero fashioin sense." If you have zero then what do I have.. negative 9000 ??? Those man uggs not only look bad..but think how hot and sweaty his feet must feel. Not a good choice at all.

    1. Oh, it's pretty close to 0, trust me on that. hahahahaha

      Those man uggs are AWFUL. Bleh, I would hate to smell the stank of those feet!!!

  15. Totally agree with ya girl. I HATE JORTS (jean shorts) AND WIFE BEATERS!!!!! Talk about redneck city!!!!!

    1. Jorts? That's a new one!! LMAO I'm so guilty of jean shorts and a wife beater. It's so comfy!!!! hahahaha

    1. I think that some girls have the nose for a small piercing! I dn't have the nose for it and I'm not keen on the idea of someone sticking a needle through it, but I'm super jealous of the girls that can pull it off. :)

      And I totally, completely agree on the feathers ;)

  21. oh I agree on all of them...the uggs with the suit? wth? and the poof? so ugly! I do, however, know a girl that pulls the feather off nicely...but she's a teen ...def has to be on a younger person.

    I hate crocs, too...I think they are SO ugly.

    who thinks up these ugly fashion trends? I just don't get why people latch on to them like they are the best things. No pants? lol. What are they thinking?

    1. LMAO Yea, some people can pull the feather off, but why? Why is it there?! Maybe the next time my snake molts, I'll know his dead skin into my head. WHY?!?!?

  26. I'm always aghast at those who knowingly wear hip-huggers that don't even cover their posterior, and give hate rays when someone glances at the uncovered section. Or they pull them up, hoping magic will somehow hem them to cover the offending crack.

  27. LMAO!!!! Jax, I wish I had seen this yesterday!! Oh, you have me laughing so hard right now!!!! Now, don't you go picking on my girl Theresa! Her and her tiny little husband, Joe entertain me for weeks on end with her glittery bathing suits and floppy hats. Joe rolling around on the floor drunk, how great is that?? And picking on poor pregnant Snookie!? LOL I'm gonna try and do a poof in my hair today! See if I can be taller than 5'2"

    Great post, Jax - you had me rolling!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Jax, I totally agree with you on everything except the feathers. In my hometown everyone from children to 50ish women wear them. I have worn them this past year but they broke off when I had to wear a ponytail for my zumba clases. I'm tired of them now. Its just something decorative like barrettes, flowers, getting your hair frosted, etc. I think you would definitely be able to pull it off. I didn't do the peacock feathers but had solid colors if that makes any difference, lol.

    ReplyDelete
  29. i love wearing shorts and skirt but i don't think i will reach in that Lady Gaga level! hehhehe besides hubby won't allow it hahahaha... xoxo

  30. I think good fashion sense is wearing that which helps you feel comfortable.

  31. Hahaha i LOVED this post! so hilarious...
    Man Uggs... wow it must be the end of the world!! Ben is gorgeous but he is definitely loosing a few points of his juicyness with those boots! now i must admit, i own a pair of ugg-like boots (no was i was paying like 150 bucks for the real deal) and they are very warm and comfty. you can make them look sharp with a nice pair of skinny jeans n tailored jacket. please don´t pair them with sloppy Victorias Secret sweat pants!! do that and just go about with your hair uncombed and dark circles under your eyes and BAM you´re a compelte disaster! there are women who think that´s cool!Dangggg. LOL
    now, trends i don´t like... anything FUR. but you already know my point of view on that :)... another thing i dislike is obsessive fake tanning. i mean looking orange in the middle of winteris just wrong.a little hint of color is fine... but it just looks weird when everyone is white and you´re looking and smelling like hawain tropic!
    hmmm i´m sure there´s more.just can´t think of it right now! LOL
    have a great weekend my friend!!! ;)
    XO jannine
