18 Awful Fashion Trends That We Hope To Never See Again.
Fashion can either be bold and daring, or insanely horrific, but if there's one thing we can say is that it's rarely dull or boring. Then again, how many different versions of a handbag, dress or hairstyle can people come up with before they start repeating trends from a previous era? To prevent this from happening, designers and hairstylists come up with clever new ways to create a look that’s completely different. But in some cases, it's a total fashion fail. So, check out these fashion trends that are so bad, they’ll leave you speechless. What’s more, these horrific trends should get buried deep underground so they never resurface again.
#1. The bullet bra trend from the 1940s and 1950s seemed to be totally on point for that time period.
It actually drew attention to women’s upper bodies, and not in a positive way. But as it turns out, women were already obsessing about getting bigger busts even before boob jobs became as common as getting your hair done at a salon.
#2. The Beehive of the 1960s was ideal for women who loved backcombing their hair into a tangled mess.
The beehive was all the rage back in the 1960s. Even celebrities were doing it. Soon enough, high schools were reaching new heights with this look. But it took forever to get this done. You had to have long hair in order to backcomb the hair. Then you had to tease it until your hair practically high-fived the sky. Now that's a lot of work!
#3. The Mullets of the 1970s and 1980s were a major no-no unless you were freaking Carol Brady.
The shaggy haircut trend that began with a bob in the front and a mullet tail in the back was pretty popular in the 70s. In fact, Florence Henderson was seen sporting the look when she played Carol Brady in “The Brady Bunch.” But the uneven hair length was simply unflattering.
#4. The aerobic workout clothes from the 1980s were so hideous, but at the time everyone loved them.
Women and even a few men donned leg warmers, leotards and underwear over their pants like Superman whenever they got ready to work out. Thank goodness it was just a faze because this trend was so unflattering.
#5. Padded shoulders of the 1980s were a hit and the look wasn’t just limited to one gender but both.
Everyone wanted broad shoulders, possibly because it made them look tougher and more confident. But while the look has faded from modern fashion, some celebrities still rock them flawlessly. Just look at Lady Gaga.
