People Explain Which Fashion Trends They Cannot Stand

I recently learned that skinny jeans are no longer cool.

I know what you're thinking, when where they EVER?

Well, that's just your opinion, man.

But get this, Generation Z is back to wearing those baggy mom jeans.

I'm sorry... I'm not about that life. Now I'll have to hoard skinny jeans before they disappear from the market entirely.

Now some people wouldn't be caught dead wearing them—opinions are strong and firmly held. We heard more after Redditor CharmingWitty asked the online community:

"What is a fashion trend that you can't stand?"

"I hate that..."

"I hate that a few influencers decided to wear Champion and Carhartt clothes and now they're so expensive."


This is truly wild to hear – it was considered super cheap clothing when I was growing up. You didn't exactly brag about it.

"Expensive clothes..."

"Expensive clothes that look like cheap clothes as if the rich who can afford them are mocking poor people."


In the words of Dolly Parton: it takes a lot of money to look this cheap!

"Any incredibly short-lived trend..."

"Any incredibly short-lived trend that people end up throwing out in one season. SO wasteful. I only buy things that I’m happy to continue using regardless of changing fads."


Wasteful is right. This is why I try to buy things that will last – it's more expensive, a true investment, but it's worth it.

"That annoyingly popular..."

"That annoyingly popular tiktok hairdo. The one where guys with typically straight hair throw a bunch of product in it to make it look like uncooked ramen noodles."


I wonder what Justin Timberlake's thoughts on this trend are. He walked so these kids could run.

"Cropped tops..."

"Cropped tops that look like normal length tops in store. Why is it so difficult to find shirts that go past the bellybutton?"


The frustration is real! Many women complain about this.

"My mom..."

"My mom has to have the Michael Kors MK logo on almost everything she wears. Eyeglasses, shirt, jacket, pants, boots, purse, phone case (all for the same outfit). She's a walking billboard for MK. Sorry mom, love you but nobody is impressed."


Yeah, I think the majority of people would agree that logos are pretty tacky.

"They put them everywhere now..."

"Ruffles on clothes. They put it everywhere now and sometimes it's fine but most of the time... Whyyyy?"


I think ruffles don't look great. Sue me. The only ruffles I want anywhere near me are potato chips.

"I don't know..."

"I don't know if it's gotten beyond NZ, but here a lot of young guys are wearing matching shorts and shirts with fruit prints on them, I see it all the time, it's so bizzare. Pineapple has been especially popular this season."


Going to be honest here... I am not a fan of fruit patterns. But you should come out to Bushwick sometime. You'll find them everywhere.

"How it's impossible..."

"How it's impossible to find women's shorts that cover more than the bare essentials. At least it gives me an excuse to go into the men's section with long shirts and big pockets."


Stores geared to hiking and camping usually have shorts that are mid thigh or longer length. They also have decent pockets! Costco carries longer shorts seasonally.

"Cut outs in every dress..."

"Cut outs in every dress and crops everywhere! Like just let me buy something that covers up all my pudgy belly."


The horror. It doesn't have to be this way. Revolt?

I'm so glad I'm a nobody – that means I don't have to try to look like somebody. Wear what makes you comfortable. Everyone has their own tastes, some more expensive than others. Just don't judge.

Until we're in a situation, we'll never really know how we'll react.

I have been in this scenario, though.

Sex matters. And people rarely want to admit how much.

But sex isn't a lifetime guarantee.

It fades, as does love.

It's important to speak about it.

It can be a fixable situation.

A relationship without sex may not be the end of the world, but it's definitely a sign that something is off.

An important contributor to our overall health and happiness is the quality of our friendships.

We may not have a lot of friends, but the more important factor is the depth of those relationships.

But we've all had one of those friends who turned out not to be a very good friend at all.

No one wants to be alone.

But that doesn't mean we should settle when it comes to choosing a romantic partner.

When people rush into things without letting love flourish, it could lead to problems down the line that can inevitably lead to difficult breakups.

Among the many reasons people watch, and rewatch, sitcoms is to imagine your life was more like the one you were watching.

Being able to afford a two-bedroom apartment in Greenwich Village on a line cook's salary, somehow always having the comfortable sofa available at your favorite coffee shop whenever you pop in, or having your best friends always available at your beck and call whenever you need them.

For the romantics, however, it's wishing you could have a romance like you've seen on television.

True not all sitcom romances are exactly the sort that makes you go all aflutter (Were Ross and Rachel actually on a break? And don't even get me started about Ted and Robin.)

Other sitcom couples are so captivating, though, that we would have given anything to be at their wedding... or at the very least go to their home for dinner every Friday.

And this includes plutonic couples, as there is nothing more heartwarming than a lasting friendship.
