Are you frustrated about some fashion trends that pop up on a regular basis? Or even worse these seemingly evergreen fashion items that everyone wears but you just wish that they would go away and never come back? You know the ones that are so ugly that you would not even wear them if they were free-bees 😉 .

Top list of style ruining trends

Here is my list of ugly no-nos

  1. Meant-to-be funny T-shirts
  2. Free-bee promotional T-shirts
  3. Flared jeans and pants
  4. Tie-dye anything
  5. Small round metal glasses like John Lennon’s
  6. Chains to hang your reading glasses around your neck
  7. Bandanas
  8. Dress shoes with crepe sole unless they have a wedge heel
  9. Ballet flats
  10. Lace flats except for a pair by Salvatore Ferragamo. I wish I had a pair to sell it on eBay
  11. Block heels despite they are comfortable to stand in
  12. Go-go boots
  13. Sequins as large as a quarter
  14. Holiday sweaters for adults unless you are Santa Claus
  15. Plastic flip flops, mules or shoes – you are not Barbie, right?
  16. Mommy jeans – I am not a mom
  17. Relaxed pants and jeans
  18. Pants, jeans, or skirts with elastic waist band – they are practical for babies to be pulled easily over diapers. I am glad I don’t need them.
  19. Blue or purple eye-shadow literally painted all over the lid. It looks like you had an encounter with Mohammed Ali.
  20. Baggy sweat pants in partner look for him and her or even worse as fun for the whole family
  21. Lace slips – spandex shapewear slips do double duty: shaping and serving as an underlayer

  23. Granny panties. There is a reason why they are called Liebestöter (meaning love killer) in German.
  24. Bras the size of Alaska – I need Rhode Island size
  25. Bifocal glasses with demarcation line – I lived more than 27 years close to the Iron Curtain formerly called German-German border.
  26. Jeans with pockets below the bum
  27. Low rise jeans/pants that show the Y or the whale tail of your thong
  28. Swimsuits with attached skirts – What are they covering anyway?
  29. Dirty wash jeans, jackets
  30. Acid wash jeans and jackets
  31. Mummus – Is this the baby talk word for cows?
  32. Dungarees
  33. Moon boots – They are for astronauts.
  34. Tired skirts – they look like giant American wedding cakes
  35. Chandelier earrings with long curly hair and glasses
  36. Jumpsuits – jump suit 😉
  37. Down anoraks
  38. Bunny boots which is one of the two Alaska It boot styles
  39. Destroyed jeans – they take too much time to put on. I mean who has the time to make sure not to tangle the own toes in those leftover meshes
  40. Socks with toes in egg yoke color
  41. Yellow jersey pants
  42. Orange sweaters or T-shirts – that’s prison uniform
  43. Stockings with extra strong toe space – I have a nail clip and know how to use it
  44. Half socks to pretend that one goes bare feet in the pumps. You can’t fool anybody with them as they always stick out.
  45. Mule clogs – I had to wear them as house shoes, but had to walk silently when going up the marble stairs at nap-time. Welcome to mission impossible.
  46. Short-shorts
  47. Micro minis
  48. Bandage dresses – I am not a sausage
  49. Handkerchief skirts – They look like giant handkerchiefs.
  50. Circle skirts – they expose everything when you twirl
  51. Tops with trumpet sleeves – how unpractical
  52. Hoodies with ears for adults
  53. Hats with ears, or antlers, horns, etc. – I have ears like saddle bags myself. That’s enough and wear the hat to cover them up. So where is the point?
  54. White sneakers – I just can’t stand when something is higher maintenance than my own body.
  55. Flannel plaid shirts anywhere outside the forest
  56. Mosquito jumpsuits – they are so itchy and scratchy that the mosquitoes seem to be harmless pets
  57.  Skirts with slits in the front except for dancing the Argentine Tango
  58. Glasses as big as ancient Coke bottles – when you are a babyboomer you know what I mean
  59. Nose rings – they are for bulls
  60. Flip-brim hat – at a certain age you don’t like to add anything that wobbles
  61. Rompers

OOTD

I wore the outfit shown in this post to a dance party. I like that this wrap skirt has a sleek cut, but still allows the moves needed in Argentine Tango. Since the skirt has some golden shine, I went with a plain T-shirt and patent leather pumps. I went with a crew-neck to give the outfit some sultry vibe. It offsets the high slit in the front of the skirt. Cleavage would be over-kill. I wear bikers underneath the skirt to be covered when I have to lift my leg up.
