Five ugly trends that went viral

Highlight Story

The noughties saw some amazing fashion – the rise of skinny jeans, the advent of boyfriend blazers, skyscraper platform shoes, a resurgence of miniskirts, ultra comfortable ballet flats and cargo pants…this can go on. But where there are hits, there are always misses. And the past decade has been rife with some comically bad trends.

There’s nothing more hilarious than looking at old pics and going “No way I could have worn THAT!” But hey, we know better now, or do we?

We don’t care how comfortable they are. You still look dumb in them. Enough said.

Thong trend
Thank ze Gods, this one’s gone. Even if you have a butt cleave that rivals Beyonce’s, this is just too much information. No one wants to see it.

Embellished denim
It started with booty bling and it just didn’t stop! Blech! Thank you pop princesses for ruining our sacred relationship with denims. Thankfully the trend ended when their careers did.

Juicy matchy trackpants
From the House of Juicy Couture came a trend so ugly that when women wore it, they didn’t need to exercise birth control anymore. The tracksuit took care of it.

Leggings as pants
This one needs to die a painful death. Ladies, no matter how bodacious your booty is, it is not ok to wear leggings as pants. If we wanted to see so many camel toes, we’d move to the Sahara desert.
