Fashion can be inexplicable at times. It's hard to know where they begin, and why they happen. Like, whose idea was it to wear jeans under skirts back in the early 2000's? Now THAT was a fashion tragedy.


But bad fashion trends aren't just in the past. Here are some of the most hated modern fashion trends, courtesy of Reddit. Q-tipper asked:

What is a fashion trend you hate?

​You would think everyday fashion would be about convenience and comfort, but that just isn’t so.

Why are these so hard to find?

“2x or 3x that is only wide, not long.

Big and TALL f*ckers! You forget the tall part.”

DriftingPyscho

“I f*cking swear, finding ANYTHING in 3XLT is impossible. I'm tall AND fat, godd*mnit.”

SIgXL

You’d think work clothes would be a bit more comfy.

“Making employees wear clothes that are easily stained."

OhTheHueManatee

'100% agree. I work at a truck dealership and they used to make us wear khakis. Even the warehouse and parts employees. It is impossible to get grease or coolant stains out of those. Before we just decided to ignore that rule everybody was walking around with all kinds of fun and dubious stains."

​The worst part about women’s clothing.

“Fake f*cking pockets? To hell with them I say."

Rosetacks

“The shorts I'm wearing right now have fake back pockets. I've tried putting my phone in my back pocket about 10 times today and am ready to just rip the shorts off my legs at this point."

​On the topic of women’s clothing, here are a few examples of some truly weird trends.

We need longer sleeves!

“Long sleeves on women's clothing that are too short. Most long sleeves end well before my wrist and a few inches past my elbow. I'm not exactly Queen of the Long-Armed Amazons! I end up pushing the sleeves up on everything because I look like a kid after a growth spurt whose clothes no longer fit properly. WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE WITH IMPOSSIBLY SHORT ARMS?”

​It’s a scam!

“As a woman, sheer shirts and dresses. I don't want to have to wear a cami under every d*mn shirt!”

Xanadu-in-sedona

“I think it's a way to get you to spend more money.”

Yma-bean

“Bow down and give your money to BIG LAYERING!

My wife refers to them as bobo's (buy one/buy one) because you can't pick up one without the other to match.”

This ruins the whole outfit.

“Clothes that are cute until you look up close and the back says something stupid like ‘but first, coffee’.”

TaiPer077

“I always get those as gifts like, ‘I knew this was your sense of humor’. Why are we friends?”

Lesmobile

​To heck with cropped jackets.

“Women's jackets that stop just above the bottom rib. When I'm wearing a jacket, I'm wearing it because I'm COLD, not as a fashion statement!

Legitimate-Fish-9261

The things people wear for the sake of brand names continue to make no sense to me (or these Redditors, apparently).​

​Definitely bad taste.

“Large logos. Ralph Lauren is the worst. I'll see a shirt I like with an oversized polo man. It ruins the shirt.”

Wtn06

“The back story behind large polo man is actually funny because it was entirely unintentional and just a business responding to customer demand.

Apparently Ralph Lauren was the apparel provider for one of the more prestigious tennis tournament (think US Open, Wimbledon, etc.) and they made one-offs for the ball boys to wear so that the logo would be visible on TV - there was apparently no initial intent to market them to the general public. People watching saw it and said I WANT THAT, and here we are with giant Polo logos now.

So yeah, oversized polo man is a result of consumers' bad taste.”

Duffman13jws

​Why is this a thing?

“Stickers on hats.”

Ufenheimer

“When I was young, I bought a hat and left the sticker on, because it was the thing to do. A few years later I realized it was dumb, and also peeling so I tore it of. Turns out the hat was more faded than I thought. So I stuck my own sticker on to hide the shame.”

JonnySnowflake

​To be fair, these are comfy af.

“Those leggings from TikTok that have that scrunch in the a**hole, so they literally suck into your a** crack. I hate it.

0bsolescence

“They're the freaking worst! I got a pair without looking at the back just thinking it was a cool texture. They're just sitting in my dresser looking all sad and stupid.”

MrsSoldiercide

As humanity continues to evolve, so does fashion. And soon enough, these weird fashion trends will die out, and make room for even more sh*tty trends.

Such is life. Now if you’ll excuse me, I gotta go put on my TikTok leggings. Sue me, they’re comfy.​

People Break Down Which TV Shows No One Else Seems To Remember

As a kid, I remember being obsessed (like obsessed) with David the Gnome and his fox Swift. I was tuned in daily to watch the adventures, get all misty eyed for the hurt animals the gnomes saved, and sob in abject wonder when the gnomes finally lived all 400 years of their gnome life and transitioned into the trees that make up the woods they live in.

The trees are their ancestors, y'all! The treeees! They protect the trees because they're family. Trees grow intertwined because they were so in love when they were gnomes.

Fam! This show was everything ... except memorable for other people, because I was in my 30s talking to someone from another country before I met the first person who remembered this show.

Which, honestly, is kind of insulting to gnomes and trees.

People Describe The Oddest Jobs They've Ever Had

Working in entertainment production is one of those things that sounds awesome - and make no mistake, it is.

It's just that it's also one of those jobs that means when your partner calls you at 1 in the morning to ask where you are, and you tell them you're out measuring lemons for Beyoncé... it's not a euphemism and it's not that weird.

Queen Bey wants a bowl of 15 evenly sized lemons for her dressing room, Queen Bey gets a bowl of 15 evenly sized lemons for her dressing room.

And because catering runners care about doing their jobs well and usually have a multi-tool on them anyway, Beyoncé is getting the sexiest, most uniformly sized, lemons we can find.

Men Share The Biggest Downsides To Being Male

In spite of considerable work being, and progress, made to change things, it remains a fact that men have countless advantages in modern society.

In addition to not having to deal with several biological issues all women must endure, men still seem to have the upper hand when applying for positions of power, or being trusted with major responsibilities.

As a result, those who do not identify as men often roll their eyes when men of any age offer even the slightest complaint.

Which doesn't mean that plenty of men still maintain that there are definite downsides to carrying those he/him pronouns.
