Trends I hate... and love.

Some trends have made me go WHHHHHYYYYY?!?!!?! while some have made me go FINALLY! 
Here they are.

Trends I hate.

Why would you want to wear something that makes your hips look bigger and contort your body's silhouette out of proportion? Why? WHY?!

Nerdy eye glasses
To me this was the stupidest trend. Why would you want to hide your face face behind big geeky glasses? I mean, are you that ugly? {I'll make an exception for Justin Timberlake. His face is so bland that those glasses actually add interest.} Worst is when I see people wearing them without the glasses, just the frames. Soooo tempted to poke them in the eye.

I have only one word for this trend: t-a-c-k-y. And no, I don't like it when all the contents of my handbag are on display, thankyouverymuch.

Trends I love 

The return of colour
I don't remember what year it was, maybe 2001-02, when everything in fashion was *does a hand-sweeping motion* bayyyyyjjjje. I swear, everything was the colour of sand! When you hit the mall all you could see was beige, light beige, dark beige, lighter beige, darker beige, and monochrome. UGH! I was convinced the fashion world had gone mad. Thankfully colour came back, and how! From coloured jeans to colour blocking to colourful heels, colour is here to stay. Even men's fashion has been injected with colour. Hey, you've gotta admire a man that can carry off red pants.

Wide leg pants
I'm loving how fashion is gradually moving towards making comfort a priority. Tight, body-con stuff aside, there's something to be said for loose clothing that lets you breathe. I'll be honest when I say I hate pants because of their {un}comfort level. Which is why I'm such a fan of wide-leg pants. Not only are they uber-comfy, they make you look tall, stately and elegant.

Maxi dresses
 The maxi dress- the ultimate in comfort and fast fashion. Even if you have three minutes to get dressed, throw on a maxi dress and voila! Instant style quotient boost. Not only does a maxi dress make you look like you're dripping with elegance, they're versatile. Add a leather jacket/ scarf/ blazer/ denim jacket to switch looks.

 Ladies, please try to remember- you don't have to try on every fad/ trend. Or even like them for that matter. Don't let the fashion media bully you. Wear what suits you, your body and your personality. And of course, make sure you're comfortable in it.

  1. Maybe Peplum does not look good on you so you think it is bad fashion trend.

  2. I don't think peplum looks good on anyone.

  3. I feel Peplum does look good on people who does not have flat belly. Peplum does a good job of hiding it. Also it looks good on short people. It elongates the body frame by creating short waist.

  4. I appreciate your opinion. As you know, this is a personal blog and I freely state my opinions and thoughts. I'm not enforcing what I hate on anyone, I'm simply saying they don't make sense to me.

  5. Dear anonymous

    Your comment that peplum makes short people look tall is bullshit. I'm 5ft 2in and I look pudgy in peplum. If you think peplum is a nice trend, hurray for you. There is no need to convince others of it.

  6. I kinda agree wid ur idea on perspex. I mean a see thru bag? Is kinda weird. And love love wide leg pants ♡.♡

    1. I know, right? Imagine if you were carrying tampons in your bag. Haha!
