The World Is Ending? Take These 21 Trends With You!

2_Hair Extensions

The end of the world may be coming on December 21, so in honor of this historic event (and just in case we survive!), I’ve compiled a list of 21 trends I would love to see come to a dramatic conclusion. Here they are in no particular order.

1. THE STUDS

I’m not talking about Channing Tatum in Magic Mike, but all of the studding being on every article of clothing. Enough.

2. SUPER LONG HAIR EXTENSIONS

Even when they look good, we can tell they aren’t real. And when they’re done badly, it’s a whole other tragedy.

3. FAKE EYELASHES

While I’m at it, the super-long, fake eyelashes or extensions need to go, too. We know those aren’t your real lashes, and you aren’t on a runway, in a fashion editorial or starring in a porn film. Lots of mascara and maybe a few individual add-on lashes will do.

4. LOGOS & BRAND NAMES ON THE OUTSIDE

This comes with a caveat. It’s fine if the logo is somewhat subtle, like Chanel and Hermes, or an iconic pattern that’s part of the brand’s storied history, like Louis Vuitton (120+ years), Gucci (90+ years) or Goyard (110+ years).

5. YES, YOU CAN BE TOO TAN

A nice glow is one thing. Looking like a dry, over-baked potato is another. Don’t get me started if you think orange = tan.

6. SKULLS

On scarves, on tees, on every other accessory. I don’t want to see anymore skulls until Halloween.

7. OVER-PLUMPED BOOBS, LIPS, FACES AND UNNATURAL-LOOKING PLASTIC SURGERY IN GENERAL

Let’s strive for a little ‘realness,’ shall we?

8. YOGA PANTS

They’re for practicing yoga, ladies, not to be worn all day long.

9. OVER-DESIGNED DENIM

Any denim that’s designed to look overly distressed or has elaborate stitching. Basic jeans should have the perfect fit, be very plain and get ages naturally by the wearer, not some machines.

10. CROCS

Do I even need to explain why this inexplicable phenomenon needs to go away?

11. SICKENINGLY SKINNY

I will agree that you can never be too rich, but you can be too thin. Being fit is one thing, but emaciated is another story. Here’s the deal: as long as you have a waist, I don’t care what size you are. If your belly is bigger than your upper torso or hips, then you need to get healthy. If we see the definition of your bones and not your muscle, then you need to eat a sandwich.

12. UGGS

Ugh! I mean, UGGs! No, I mean Uuuuuugh!

13. NERD GLASSES

Big oversized nerd glasses on anyone older than high school age or who is not a true eccentric.

14. CREEPERS

They just kinda creep me out. This is a more personal thing.

15. OLD GIRLS IN LITTLE DRESSES

Body-con dresses worn too small mostly on women who are too old to be wearing them in the first place. But I’m not sparing the PYTs, because I see your LBC (lower butt cleavage) everywhere. Not chic.

16. MULLET DRESSES/SKIRTS

It had a moment. Now that moment is over – hopefully for another 30 years.

17. OVER-THE-TOP ATTIRE

Pop stars with ostentatious outfits and other artists (and fans) who emulate their looks. It’s just not fun anymore now that everyone looks like the offspring of Ziggy Stardust and Grace Jones.

18. OMBRE HAIR & DIP-DYED ENDS

Now it’s just starting to look like you’re too lazy to get your hair did.

19. THE DESIGNER ‘IT’ BAG

We get it. You’re really, REALLY rich. But when too many people have a covetable luxury item, it loses its cachet.

20. FOAM PLATFORM FLIP FLOPS

Really? I still can’t believe these are being worn.

21. FEATHERS

Feathered earrings make you look like a ’60s hippe, and feathered skirts make you look like an ice skater. Please use them sparingly.

Lol George, you are hilarious but there are a few things on this list that I have been doing since before they are trends with NO plans of stopping! 1. Long hair extensions, it's just me. And I have long hair but it is so difficult to deal with so I weave it up! Problem solved! 2. Fake eyelashes. Pregnancy took my eyelashes, I feel more glamorous with eyelash extensions for special events and when done right, no one can tell. 3. Uggs. Ugly, yes, that's the point. Most comfortable shoes ever, yes! Perfect for cold winter days and running after 2 little ones. 4. Mullet dresses/skirts, I love them! 5. I sparingly use feathers as it is, I love them in moderation. I love you George and of course JustFab! Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas to you all! XO

This was hilarious!  I'm still going to wear my ONE pair of studded boots though - "Hell Yeah." :)

Aw, I love high-low dresses and skirts!  They make my midget legs look longer -- the only other time that happens is when I wear mini's, and I'm too old (and have too much self-respect) for the dreaded LBC, lol.
