18 Awful Fashion Trends That We Hope To Never See Again.
#6. Psychedelic patterns from the 1960s and 1970s started out in San Francisco, California.
At the time, San Francisco was a safe haven for hippies and since hippies were oh-so in love with vibrant colors, psychedelic patterns popped up everywhere. Soon, everyone looked like they’d just gotten splashed by a bunch of multi-colored paint cans.
#7. The Hobble skirt of the 1910s made women’s lower extremities look extremely narrow.
What’s worse is that the base left virtually no wiggle room, so women used special loops to keep themselves from taking big steps because doing so would have caused the fabric to tear. So, we imagine there were a lot of women in the 1910s walking kind of funny down the street.
#8. It was a weird time for men’s fashion in the 1970s, and by weird, we mean prepare-to-go-blind ugly.
Things like turtlenecks and odd-looking suits in even weirder colors popped up everywhere. Some of the looks were cheesy and yet at the time, they were considered to be very manly and even chic. Can you imagine?
#9. In the 1980s and 1990s, people spent less money on detangling products and more time teasing.
In the 80s and 90s, teased hair was totally in fashion. Women didn’t want to have their hair pressed flat against the sides of their heads. So, they started teasing their hair. After all, who could ever complain about a little extra hair volume?
#10. Fanny packs were fairly common in the 1990s and were also quite useful for adults and for kids.
People would conveniently put all of their accessories in their fanny packs and zip it up so thieves couldn’t get to them. But as handy as it was to have one of these, sporting one around your waist just didn’t make you look as cool. Ok, so The Rock could pull it off.
