Fashion Trends I Got Over REAL FAST

Hello and happy weekend friends!

As I was scrolling through Ebay trying to find cheap steals (You know me) I stumbled across some trends thinking – Ugh glad that trends over with which gave me the light bulb moment of writing a blog post..about all the fashion trends I USED to love but now either hate or dislike. Have you ever looked back and gone..Why did I ever like THAT? Well today’s the day to show and tell baby because here comes some fashion trends that I got over REAL FAST.

Hi-Low Skirts/Dresses

Check out the latest trends that I now dislike and used to LOVE
2011 – actually wearing a navy tee and black skirt.

I was OBSESSED with this trend when it first hit stores. I thought – how convenient that I can wear a dress that’s long in the back and short in the front to give me some air flow. But in all serious-ness. After a few too many skirts, dresses (and one top) later…I can’t even believe I thought this was a good idea.

As I look back at photos I can understand why I fell into the trend but can also see why I fell out of it so quickly. I feel like I look so disproportional!


But don’t let me stop you from shopping the trend 😉

Lace-up flats

Now I still own a couple of pairs and I do admire them and think they are pretty. But I am NOT in love with this trend anymore – purely for functional reasons. In photos on Insta they look fabulous and so trendy, but try walking around all day constantly re-tying and re-adjusting if you aren’t a knot-tying goddess? This trend looks good on paper but doesn’t always work out for the best.

2012 – Back when I wore interesting clothes.


I was very much OBSESSED with this trend – especially when I was bigger. Now that I’ve lost weight – I feel this look only accentuates the wrong areas and doesn’t really work. I still think this can work on some people – but regardless of weight – I got over the trend and felt it was doing more harm than good on people.

But don’t let me stop you from shopping the trend 😉


I remember being 12-13 yrs old in Fashion Fair (those were the days) trying on a red one-shoulder top and loving it. The year was 2001 and they were ALL THE RAGE. A few months later I hated the top and wished I never invested in such a ridiculous idea! I can’t explain what changed but I just couldn’t understand the big deal and never bought one again. Now that they have reared their one-shouldered heads – I’m still in the same thought pattern.

Silky Strapless Dresses

Check out the fashion trends trends that I now dislike and used to LOVE

This was one of my signature styles back in my night clubbing days (ex Surfers Club Rat represent!) I lived in these type of dresses when I went out and about and now I can’t stand them! Maybe it’s because I am now in my late twenties – or maybe it’s because the late 2000’s is now over – but nonetheless – It’s a trend I am happy to keep with my 19 year old self. Although at the time i loved it and think it looked good – You wouldn’t catch me wearing this style today. Give me a long strapless cotton maxi any day!

  • As much as I wanted too, the one-shoulder and strapless trends I never really got into as it’s so hard getting a good strapless bra, haha!

    I still love peplum and asymmetrical hems though 🙂

    Hope you are having a great weekend!

    Thanks for linking up to the Top of the World Style party. I like high-low dresses. They are so chic

  • I agree with everything save the hi-low dresses. There’s just something about an asymmetrical hemline that sets my heart a-thumping 😛

  • I still quite like the high/low skirt thing if it’s done properly – but maybe that’s because I like my legs, and it’s a flattering style for my body shape! I love the look of the whole off the shoulder thing, but I hate wearing it – it just doesn’t work on me!

    • If done right I do think it rocks – maybe I more just hate it on me? 😛 Whatever works for you honey – flaunt it! 🙂 I agree OFS would look funny on me personally XX

  • Andrea

    Great post! I sometimes take a look at some old pics of mine and just think out loud “What the heck was I thinking?!” lol. Some trends just aren’t flattering for my body and I still wonder what went through my mind. With the years, I’ve come to realize that I don’t need to have the latest trends, I just need what works best for me, that flatters my body and is comfortable (comfort above all, right?). I do remember I never really liked the peplum trend. I had one black peplum dress that my boyfriend gave me and I wore it ZERO times, lol. 🙂

    • Thanks Andrea!

      Haha yes I agree 100% and that’s what I try to do more these days 🙂 XX

  • I’ve got a peplum (albeit a slight peplum) ivory blazer still in my wardrobe – wore it to my cousin’s wedding in the UK last year with a dress. It was the only way I was going to get into the trend, but by the time I bought it the trend was on its way out. It sat in my wardrobe for YEARS (tag still on & all) before I popped it on for another wedding. Maybe I should call it the wedding blazer lol…

    I can’t remember if there’s been any trends I loved but no longer love, but I can tell you that I’m so over the off-the-shoulder trend right now…partly because I can’t wear it (wonky shoulders unfortunately) & because it’s been done to death this past spring/summer.

    • Aw no Shell! At least you now have a blazer for weddings? 😛 hahaha

      And I completely agree about the OFS comment! XX
