In the world of fashion, trends come and go, and we face a daunting decision each time a new fad comes around: Do we hop on the bandwagon or sit this one out? We at Shecky’s are considerably open-minded, but here are some trends we certainly will NOT fall victim to. What do you think? Are these trends okay or noooo way?
Boot Sandals: We understand that sometimes you have to ditch practicality in the name of fashion, but wearing a sandal (intended for warm weather wear) mixed with a boot (intended for cold weather wear) seems downright silly. This shoe is having an identity crisis and we hope it gets the help it needs!
If you’re brave enough: Maison Martin Margiela MM6 Thong Open-Toe Sandal Boots at Saks Fifth Avenue ($151.99)
Floral Jeans: The ‘80s are back in full swing with these washed-out pantalones that would assuredly make Joey Lawrence say “Whoa!” (…and not in a good way). We love flirty florals, but we prefer them on skirts and tops instead of our stems.
If you’re brave enough: Floral Print Skinny Ankle Jean ($20) from Arden B.
Clogs: With or without heels, we do NOT dig this summer trend. The Netherlands didn’t win the Cup and they certainly don’t win our hearts with this Dutch-inspired fad.
If you’re brave enough: JESSICA SIMPSON JUNIE STUDDED LEATHER CLOGS ($89) at Lord and Taylor
Long Denim Skirts: We’re all for hybrid styles, but the long skirt/denim skirt combo is one combo that is more peanut butter and mayo than peanut butter and jelly. There doesn’t seem to be anything flattering about denim that is that long and shapeless.
If you’re brave enough: Lucky Brand Legend Hippie Skirt ($116)
Muchos Military: A pair of cool khakis or a splash of safari style here and there we’re okay with, but the full-out military look consisting of cargo pants, combat boots and a jacket is too combat-ive of an approach for us. We think too much OD (olive drab) is well…OD (overdone!).
If you’re brave enough: Pair Express’ EMBELLISHED ROUCHED-FRONT MILITARY SHIRT ($59.50) with Blank Military Cargo in Joan ($74) from Revolve Clothing.
GIRL TALK TIME: What are some trends you definitely won’t be getting into this season? What was the worst trend you ever tried? Why did it fail? Would you ever try any of these trends?
