Trends that I *Don't* Want to See Again
Posted by Living, Learning, Eating at 6:00 AM
Um, hello, 90s.
I hope that nothing from the 90s ever comes back to life. Yes, I was alive for most of the nineties (1993 was a good year - Nelson Mandela won the Nobel Peace Prize, the US Senate lifted economic sanctions against South Africa, and I was born. All really important :P ) but I was too young to defend myself against the fashion atrocities of the time.
So those sparkly jeans?
Those terrible sweatshirts?
Forgive me my (fashion) sins, I was young and did not know better.
Which isn't to say that I know better now.
I'm sure I make many fashion faux pas. I mean, how can you not?
There's always that outfit, the one that could be either terribly fashion-forward or terribly unfortunate. If you're not willing to give it a go, and risk ultimate (fashion) disaster, you'll be stuck wearing jeans and cardigans day in and day out. That's okay sometimes (guilty - hello, finals period?) but clothes are too much fun to be scared.
I'm looking forward to seeing what 2012 has in store for us! As long as we don't try to bring the 90s back (we've brought back leggings, skinny jeans, high waists, maxi dresses, and low hemlines with various degrees of success from earlier decades already) I'm happy.
I'm crossing my fingers for bubble skirts, dresses, and delicate, sweet styles, though!
Oh, and here's a breakfast trend I'm enjoying:
Chocolate (black bean) breakfast cakes. Yum.
What do you think was the worst decade in fashion history?
Is there anything you either *really* want to see or really *don't* want to see in 2012?
