As 2013 comes to an end, there are many trends that need to end with it. As Karl Lagerfeld says “trendy is the last thing before tacky”, and one of these trends is definitely at that point. The other 2 are relatively new on the scene but simply don’t make sense.
My feelings on this trend are a bit different than it may seem. I actually LOVE leather pants. I’m not even going into all the things I love about them, because in reality I will probably never wear them and neither will most of you. Other than being unbreathable and not very practical, there are very few people that are willing to pay the near $1000 price tag (faux leather pants are just not the same). Leather pants also draw so much attention to the leg that there are so few of us that would ever feel comfortable in them. I’m sticking to coated denim (a trend that needs to stay).
Top knots are great and I understand that many women just don’t have enough hair for a proper top bun. But what started out as a boost took a turn for the worst. The sock bun has been abused and now the overly polished bun just looks too fake and old. There are many hairstyles out there and it’s time to try something new.
In the last couple of years, I’ve been going back and forth on Birkenstocks but haven’t been fully able to get on board. I understand they are comfortable. But, they are so just ugly!! I simply can’t go there. I don’t care how many designers try to recreate more fashionable versions of the shoe. There are just too many amazing shoes out there to give this one anymore energy.
