Fashion Faux Pas

Trends come and go, right now your clothes have to be as closely pinned to your skin as possible just so that people never ever have to use their imagination. But there was a time when it wasn’t so clear and easy. Here’s a few little throwbacks into the world of common fashion that will leave the younger generation scratching their head and throwing a confused glance at Mammy and Daddy wondering what were they possibly thinking..

Flares: Ok, so they weren’t all bright green but a lot of them could have been. They were huge around the hippy era of the 60s and early 70s and were most often seen in the company of a moustache, long hair and heeled boots, and that’s just the men.

Blond Highlights: Women still do it to this day and that’s perfectly alright but that’s because they can get away with it. They pull it off and sometimes, you wouldn’t even notice. But when blond highlights became a major hit for the men in the noughties, everyone was doing it and not everyone was really pulling it off. Exhibit A: Justin Timberlake.

Baggy Pants: Believe it or not some people still persist with wearing their pants as low down on their backside as they can without allowing them to fall down around their ankles. If you are so concerned about whether people can see your underwear, you’re better off just walking around in them all the time.

The Man Bun: Is there anything that can be said about this one? It’s still clinging on to a little bit of life by the skin of its teeth but you have to think that the day of the Man Bun is finally behind us. Nothing would make you want to buy scissors more than the sight of a ‘mainstream but I’m original’ type hipster with a little clump of hair on the top of his head and the rest of his hair looking like someone has it tied with a peg at the back of his head. It’s finally going, going….gone?

Fashion Faux Pas
Parka Jackets: They were absolutely massive around the last turn of the decade and I never understood why. They had half a wild animal glued to the back of the hood, about 40 pockets both inside and out and made every adolescent male in the country look as if they were about to either flash an unsuspecting granny or try and sell you drugs.
