Top 5 Trends I Just Can't Get On Board With...

Recently, I've noticed some fashion looks evolving. I'm not one to follow trends because I always choose comfort over anything else. Plus, I'm cheap and would rather wear what I have than go out and buy something that everyone else is wearing too.

Most trends I see, I love. I think they're cute and fun and most people seem to be able to pull them off. However, there are a few trends that I can't help but wonder who came up with these things. Don't get me wrong, some people can pull them off and look good. But I just don't know how they came to be!

No judgement, just my opinions. Read along...

Camo - Some people can pull this off. For example - this girl. She actually looks cute in this. But I still can't help but wonder who thought it would be a good idea to dress like we belong on the Duck Dynasty cast?


Floral leggings - I'm all about leggings. They're comfy, they can be paired with most anything. But throwing flowers on them? No thank you, but I would like to NOT accentuate my big ass anymore than it already is.


Headbands worn on forehead - It seems very boho chic to me, which is cool and all. But it seems a little too hippy-ish to me. Plus, that doesn't look very comfortable at all. Talk about a major hair crease.


Front tuck - I'm sorry, but this looks incredibly lazy. It looks like your shirt was completely tucked in, but after you went to the restroom, you forget to tuck it all back in.

Wedge sneakers - Just no. This has to be my least favorite. I'm all about a good pair of wedges. Love adding some height without having to succumb to an uncomfortable pair of heels. But a sneaker wedge? Just no. Please don't.


Do you guys think these trends are on spot? Can you pull any of these off?
What are some trends that you just can't get on board with?

Totally agree about 1, 2, 3, and 5! LOL! YUCK! Thanks for the laughs this morning!

Audra Kate said...

I've never understood why people think you can put a pattern on leggins and call them pants. And I totally agree with the wedge sneakers. Whoever did that needs to be killed.

Niki Caron said...

I agree completely with camo - I just can't pull it off! So not me. Neither are wedge sneakers (I actually hate them) or floral leggings! But I have to say, I am a big fan of the front tuck and headbands worn on the forehead. But I totally get that they're not for everyone!!!

Amanda said...

I do love camo, but not with a dress. I have a pair of camo cargo shorts that I wear camping but that seems an appropriate place :)

Wedge sneakers.....ick!!!! And the headbands just make me confused!!!

Sarah said...

Haha I agree with a few of these! Camo is definitely for hunting, not for every day wear!

Gayle said...

It's like you were inside my brain and then posted this. I'm totally with you. I kind of like floral leggings, though... but I don't own any because I'm afraid they'd look terrrrrible.

Natalie Hinkley said...

I agree with all 5 of these!!

Ashley Rizzardo said...

Wedge sneakers are a big no-no for me. I think they just look ugly. Thanks for the laughs this morning!

Wedge sneakers are a big fat NO! Those things are hideous! If you want to wear sneakers, you're better off just wearing normal ones like everyone else and being comfortable. Otherwise, what's the point?!

Joey said...

Haha! Agreed on all accounts! This was a hilarious post! Love you!

Kate Cee said...

Second the wedge sneakers.

Jennifer said...

I love camo but haven't worn it in ages. The flower leggings make me think of the 90s. Just look at the skirts Kelly Bundy use to wear.
The tucked in shirt front thing is weird to me too...in the 90s we did the whole front and left the back out. I use to have heeled sneaks.

Kristyn said...

I agree with all of these. I just can't seem to get behind these trends either! And camo scares me...It just doesn't make sense unless you are hunting!

Melissa {Persnickety Plates} said...

haha you're funny. For some reason I've seen a couple of those shoes on other people & thought they were cute. Not for me, but on select others. The floral (or any print) leggings are terrible to me.

Meghan said...

YES! YES! I couldn't agree more with ALL of these. I admit that I wanted to try the headband, but I just don't think I could pull it off!

Suze said...

I an with you on all of this. Though I wish floral leggings worked. They don't.

ren said...

i really don't understand the shirt tuck? like why half of it? is there a reason why? ! its so stupid!!!

the floral leggings could maybe be OK if they weren't so loud and obnoxious like hot pink on black. maybe if they were all pastels or something, i dont know.. maybe not.

Shelley said...

Haha we are in agreement with this!

Shelley said...

I also am still against mixing different patterns!

Megan Wadsworth said...

Agreed on all accounts! I have yet to see floral pants flatter anyone. I also wish the ombré hair thing would die off... I call that growing out your roots

Amanda Haney said...

I have never seen those shoes but those are awful!! My Sister would probably wear them with her floral leggings which are strange?!!!

I like the headband look and I wear headband, but I can't pull the forehead look off yet. :(

Kate said...

YES. OMG that front tuck drives me crazy!

Micah said...

Ha ha ha. I am with you on ALL of these.

Lauren said...

I so agree, especially the camo and wedge sneakers, gross!

scrapperjen said...

I agree with you on all of these. Some trends are just a little too out there for me...

Jonna Pantelis said...

You had me with your first paragraph!

Katie said...

Yes yes yes!! I don't get any of these!!

smk053078 said...

LOL!!! I am with you on all of these EXCEPT the camo...I love my utility jacket I scored from Target and can't wait to wear it again! And I am just too dang old to sport the headbands!! ;)

Brianne Bracco said...

The front tuck has become a thang for me...but everything else...not in my closet..nope.

Becky Dougherty said...

I totally agree with everything in this post! Floral leggings are cute, but I think it's much more difficult to style them. I would much rather wear plain leggings with patterned tops!

Megan @ From Megan, With Love said...

THANK GOD you posted this! I pretty much loathe everything in this post and thought I was mildly crazy for hating those trends. ESPECIALLY the front tuck and wedge sneaker. So ugly!!

Molly S. said...

Haha!! I can't pull off ANY of those, nor want to. I have worn camo though, but that's only because I was hunting with my dad. Not that it actually looked good. I do like it on my men though. :)

And I have tried the headband one time and looked like a ninja. Don't think I'll try that again.

Amy @ A Glimpse of the Gouglers said...

Oh the wedge sneakers just make me cringe....

Helene said...

hahahah YESSSS i am down with all of this, especially those shoes.

Jessica Roth said...

You totally made me laugh about the front tuck! I've tried HARD to rock it, but when you have an under-belly it just doesn't work the same ;)

I kinda hafta get behind the wedgers though. I was totally against it until I started seeing them on everyday moms, and it was actually cute. Enough so I've gone out and bought a pair? Hell no, it's summer and I don't buy shoes unless they're $5 (unfortunately true story.)

Heather said...

I totally agree! Except...

I definitely put a camo dress on my daughter yesterday. Mostly to make her dad happy, but I must admit it was freaking adorable.

Kalee Sorey said...

I totally agree on ALL of them!!! I grew up and live in TN so everything is camo (trend or not)...including some people's cars. The half tucked shirt looks unpolished to me too.

A Babbling Brunette said...

Yet again, we agree! I HATE wedge sneakers. Some girl at work had them on yesterday. I did a double take and was just like ew.

I admit, I do wear camo sometimes, but definitely not with a skirt. Totally not a fashion statement!

daniela said...

No on the first three for sure - and I don't think that girl was able to pull off the camo at ALL lol!

I think the lazy tuck can look good but you have to have the PERFECT pants/shirt combo for it to look anything but stupid.
I also wouldn't mind a pair of sneaker wedges but I haven't really tried any on b/c I refuse to spend more than $30 on a pair and have yet to find that...

To be honest...I think we may be getting too "mature" for these trends :/ My 19yr old sister pulls all of these off like nobody's business - I mostly just shake my head LOL

Life With Lauren said...

Haha I love this post girl. Wedge sneakers I think are pretty scary personally. Floral pants anything are not for me. I know people who wear them and look but I'm not a flowery type of person. I do love those headbands though ...but then again I love most looks that are boho or hippish. Hope you are having a great week!

Kelly {Sparkles and Shoes} said...

I COMPLETELY agree, especially with those dreadful sneakers!

Salt and Pepper said...

Haha!!! We would totally be fashion friends!! Every one of these annoying to me!! Great post!

Crazy Shenanigans-JMO said...

I can't handle the first two trends either! I also HATE the sneaker wedges! They look so dumb!!!

Aubrey S. said...

I have to agree with these....though I used to have some camo flared pants that I loved. I would buy another pair if I found them.

tara said...

wedge sneakers? yikes!

lesley: the dream tree said...

i agree with all except the headbands. i love wearing them like this, but to each his own. there are some really super cute ones out there. you should try it sometime (:

Genna said...

oh goodness, these are hysterical! I am with you girl!

Meghan said...

Totally agree with these! The only one I am semi-okay with is the front tuck!
