Today, we’re looking at some crazy trends from the past that seem to be creeping their way back into women’s wardrobes. What were we thinking and why are we revisiting it???
1. Acid washed denim.

There is so much wrong with these photographs. But let’s focus on the acid washed jean/sweat pant thing here Miley is sporting and what appears to be something akin to an acid washed capri with fashion maven SJP. Why would anyone wear acid washed anything after seeing how much bad acid wash has wrought on the fashion industry???
2. Crimped hair.
Anyone? Bueller, bueller? Crimped hair was a bad idea for lots of reasons including that it’s terrible for your hair. But it also LOOKS terrible. Please tell me this is not making a comeback.

3. Shoulder pads.

Okay, so this first one is obviously wrong on a number of levels. But this last one is from Harper’s Bazaar! And yet it features the matching red pant suit paired with the oversized shoulder pads. This must not be allowed.
I’m increasingly feeling dated, but all my Sunday dresses had shoulder pads in them. They were an impressive lot. Some might have even included a bubble skirt. (Yes, there is photographic evidence somewhere.) Is this in fashion again? Do we believe that looking more like football players will improve our allure?
Okay, I have lots more: stirrup pants, the banana clip, one piece pants suits (and yes, I realize these are coming back too), matching outfits to shoes and handbags, and so forth and so on. But it’s too painful to watch it happen again, and I realized these folks just have to learn the hard way!
What is your must not repeat fashion moment from the past?
