When I walk down the street, I look around at people and examine their outfits. While there are small style mistakes people make, they aren’t nearly as bad as some of the pieces I see. Sometimes it looks like people are stuck 10 years in the past and it’s a problem.

There are some things you have in your closet right now that you need to get rid of immediately. It might have been cute a few years ago, but their time has passed. They are so bad, and the fact that I see them out in public everyday saddens me. 

Crushed Velvet

Crushed velvet might have been all the rage in 2017 but where is it now? The clearance aisle? Retailers are trying to get rid off the mass amount of crushed velvet clothing and accessories because the fad is dying and they know it. But what exactly to do wear crushed velvet with? It’s trying to be fancy but also laid back, but some of the designs are also too fancy to be laid back so, what exactly is its purpose. Can we also talk about how awful it looks in pictures? It reflects light at weird angles in random spots in the garment making it look awkwardly shaped. It’s not flattering.

Take note. If mass amounts of one type of thing find themselves in the sale or clearance section, its safe to say the trend is over. You don’t want to be one of the few who is still wearing a dead and tired trend.


Corked Heels and Wedges

I don’t understand why I even need to talk about this. But apparently, the wedges you bought five years ago have just managed to escape the closet sweep every year. Corked shoes are one of those trends that became really hot and then their dissent was slow enough that people still thought it was okay to wear. Get rid of them now. Just because someone thought it was a good idea to make a shoe out of the topper of a bottle of champagne doesn’t make it classy and it certainly doesn’t mean it looks good. 

There are so many other great shoe styles you can wear that doesn’t look like they are carved from something. These shoes are like clogs that tried to be cute.


Batwing Sleeves

I’m sorry what year is this? Because you must have thought it was 2011. I mean honestly, this is one of the worst designs I have ever had the displeasure of seeing. It’s isn’t stylish, innovative, or fashion-forward to sew the seam of the sleeves and the side of the shirt together. It’s just an unfortunate style that caught on. But when was the last time you saw people wearing that. The design is confusing and unflattering to every single person who has ever worn it. The shirt doesn’t even know what it wants to be. It’s trying to be loose and flowy on the top only to slide down into a tight bodycon fit sometimes with ugly stretchy ruffles. 

Literally, anything would look better than a shirt with batwing sleeves. Wide sleeved shirts are on trend right now and they give you a loose and relaxed appearance depending on how you style it.

Camo Print

Well, I didn’t know this was a forest. I mean you must have thought it was considering you are wearing hunting gear. Besides the fact that it is literally made to not be seen, some of the patterns places like Bass Pro Shop try to push on us are even uglier than normal dark green camo. I mean, pink camo? Come on. At least pretend like you care about your outfit. What exactly is this suppose to go with?

If you are compelled to wear some sort of environment based pattern, try a nice floral print. You are still dressed like the outside, just a better more acceptable part.

Hooded Shirts

What is this and why was it made. “Versatility” is never a valid point when defending an ugly outfit choice. These aren’t hoodies, jackets, or sweaters. These are just plain old shirts with hoods sewn right on the back. They really have no purpose and they make no statement when it comes down to it. And honestly, the only people who I see these on that is marginally acceptable, are children.

Wear a jacket with a hood on top of your normal shirt. It doesn’t take all that much to take it off if you get too hot.
