Hello, loves! Okay, so I love fashion, but that doesn’t mean I love absolutely every trend out there. Recently, I noticed a few trends that are resurfacing, and I actually gasp and cover my mouth in horror when I see them being worn again. Okay, I’m exaggerating….slightly, but I do wonder why these trends are back – and hotter than ever. I mean, weren’t they bad enough the first time around? The top 3 trends I have chosen to discuss are: Overalls, almond nails (other names: dagger or pointy nails), and Fanny packs (other names: belt pouch, chic fanny pack, vintage fanny pack).
Do we really love these or are we just wearing them for the sake of fashion? Let’s take a walk down memory lane, shall we? Let’s remember all the reasons these fashions should have stayed in the vault – the very back of the vault.
This pic makes me think, “How can any man get near a woman with these nails?” I mean, these are a weapon! This may look like a romantic picture, but if only you could see his face! He’s just praying she doesn’t puncture his neck.
Oh, dear Lord – What were we thinking? I will fully admit to this trend. I wore jean overalls, cord overalls, khaki overalls, shortalls. Now, when I look back at pictures of me in my teen years, I actually cringe at all my overalls! Did I live on a farm? Was I auditioning for a hip hop video? The answer was no. I now realize, years later, this trend only works in those two areas. So, if this is you – by all means, enjoy your overalls.
Okay, I saved the best for last…. FANNY PACKS! I mean, I was embarrassed to be seen with someone wearing a fanny pack, now we are proudly wearing them and disguising them with new names like – belt pouch, chic fanny packs, and vintage fanny packs. Is this suppose to make me want one? NO!!! The only time I ever wore a fanny pack was when I went to an amusement park (and that was only because I lost a game of straws and was forced to wear it, to keep all my friends belongings).
People all around the world are rocking these despicable trends. Take a look…….
When it all comes down to it, fashion is not dictated to us – we define it – our own way. So, I may be poking fun at some trends, but honestly, if you like it, then rock it! Who knows, one of these trends may grow on me, and I’ll have to eat my words….but somehow, I have a hard time believing I will ever warm up to the fanny pack…..
