Fashion trends that scare me

Okay, these trends don’t really scare me, but I know that there is no chance that I will be trying them. 🙂

Pattern mixing

Why would you want to wear stripes and plaid together? Or polka dots and floral? Pattern mixing is okay for home decor, but I don’t see myself wearing it. Actually, I’ve only seen one pattern-mixed outfit that I liked, it was a black and white striped dress with a black and white polka dot cardigan. Most of the time though, I just don’t get it.

Color blocking

Matching colors isn’t my strong point. And I know that the colors don’t actually have to match, they just need to go, but I’m just never sure which ones go together. I have seen some color-blocked shoes that I love, so that’s probably the closest I’ll ever get to this trend.

Arm Parties

I actually love the looks of lots of bracelets worn together. But I’m never sure about how to put the bracelets together, it’s just too overwhelming. Plus, I think that I would be really self-conscious if I wore so many bracelets at one time.

Vintage Clothes

I love the looks of some vintage clothes, especially 1940’s dresses, but I honestly would just feel like I was wearing a costume. Vintage just isn’t me.

Patterned Pants

This just brings back bad flashbacks of 80’s fashion. Besides, isn’t there a rule that if you wore the trend the first time around, you can’t wear it the second time around?


I’m not sure that thrifting can really be considered a trend, but I know that most fashion bloggers talk about it a lot. I have nothing against thrifting and occasionally find things at yard sales, but for the most part I just don’t have the patience for it. To thrift, you have be digger/hunter kind of shopper and I am not. Unless it’s books. 🙂

So, what do you think about these fashion trends? What trends scare you? Let me know in the comments!

  1. Some trends look horrible ,like that overdrawing the lips thrend, and adding so much contour powder that it looks like girls have a smack of mud on their faces… but those are makeup-related. I don’t follow trends and I don’t think t’s important to follow them. I do wear some trendy stuff but they were trendy three years ago lol
