What Trends Are You Ready To Retire?

As we head towards the New Year, we’re pondering not only our resolutions, but what we are content to leave behind in 2006. And as always, there are a few trends that have just worn out their welcome. Blinged-out cellphones and sidekicks, like Paris Hilton’s bedazzled number, are just one of the fads on our scrap heap for next year. Tell us: What trends are you tired of? What don’t you want to see in 2007?

Trends that have got to go? The cokehead Kate Moss look. I’m sick of her, and she’s dis-gust-ing! And so is her Bf. If she’s going out of style I hope she takes Paris, Lindsay, Nicole and Britney with her!

What is wrong with big bags? Even before they came into fashion I could not understand those who use tiny pink handkerchiefs instead of a proper bag! These tiny bags have also tiny little handles …brrrr

I am so tired of seeing the jeans down to your needs fad. They are not attractive and who wants to see what kind of underwear someone is wearing, pull them up where they are suppose to be.

Oh, I am sooo done with Crocs. Everyone wears them at school. I suppose they’re okay for an extremely casual day and in a neutral color like navy, but everyone has them in neon green or yellow and they don’t go with anything!

I do like skinny jeans, but I only have one pair and it’s going to stop at that. Right now I love those Audrey Hepburn cropped pants but it’s a little cold here in Michigan so they’ll just have to wait until spring :-(

I’m tired of message tees. I have some, but I wear them to bed as pajamas. My parents are the only ones who ever see my message tees. I like those vintage-inspired t-shirts but with an actual design on the front, not a logo from the 70s.

Paris Hilton needs to go. Or, she needs a new look and some humility. I really don’t care what she’s up to or who she’s dating or which club she and Britney Spears went to last night or whether or not she hit Lindsay Lohan.

Lindsay’s time is up. She needs to sober up and start working towards that Oscar she wants before she turns 30. I don’t care what Karl Lagerfeld said to her the night before. She hasn’t stepped out in an amazing outfit in a very long time. But I suppose it’s hard to look fashionable when you’re too drunk to look straight.

Out with skinny jeans, leggings, huge glasses, ankle boots and Ugg boots (whoever says they are necessary in cold-weather climates is full of beans. I’ve toughed out Wisconsin winters my whole life and never used anything remotely close to the Ugg boot).

In terms of personalities..let’s PLEASE get over Paris, Lindsay, Britney, Jessica and Nicole.

OH…and anorexia and bulemia are not trends, they are diseases. Since when are diseases supposed to be trendy?? Will eczema and leprosy be the new trend for 2007?

i don’t know how durable your body is, but mine can’t tough the cold without uggs. sorry, but i would rather my toes me warm and toasty than not be able to even feel them. i’ll stick with the uggs. that’s when comfort comes before fashion. besides, they’re cute. i’m not into the ones with the little ball thingies and all kinds of strappy things or whatever, just the good ol’ fashion uggs. they’re a must for me and i really don’t care if someone thinks they’re ugly, i’ll still wear em.

i will agree that anorexia and bulimia need to go. i can’t imagine that these 80 lb girls are looking at themselves thinking they’re fat! besides that, it’s good to have a little meat on your bones for crying out loud. look at people like jennifer anistion. she looks amazing. you would think sienna miller would get a clue and START EATING. it’s not attractive.

also, the whole “dumb blonde act” *ahem* (paris hiltion) needs to go. it’s not funny. it’s not appealing to men (if that’s what they’re trying to do). people will genuinely think you’re dumber than a bag of rocks. on top of that, it’s stinkin annoying. quit dumbing yourselves down ladies and talk like you have some brains.

I think skinny jeans should be gone – except for underhigh boots. I think skinny jeans& leggings should be in small sizes only alot of bigger people wear them and it makes them look even worse. I think ballet flats ankle boots and uggs. They dont look nice.


Skinny jeans are popular every were in world almost exept from America. My friend was there in the summer and she said that the Americans is very ugly dressed..I think she may be right

all of you people commenting about leggins and skinny jeans probably dont have the body to wear them. I absolutely LOVE my skinny jeans! What i would like to see go is those UGGS…now that is a trend to get rid of!
