People Are Sharing The Recent Fashion Trends They Can't Stand

"No idea why people like those bulky abominations so much; they make ya look like a 'Kingdom Hearts' character."

Whenever a new trend emerges (or re-emerges after lying dormant for 20 years), people tend to have a lot of opinions about it.

When redditor u/ElBee288 asked people to share the recent fashion trends they can't stand, the comments came pouring in.

Here are some of the replies:

1. "Those microscopic luxury bags that can't even fit a phone in them."

2. "Cropped tops that look like normal-length tops in store. Why is it so difficult to find shirts that go past the belly button?"

3. "That broccoli hairstyle guys have."

Man with hair like broccoli

4. "Why are bucket hats back? They weren’t even cool when they first came out!"

5. "Dried out, untrimmed, long beards."

7. "That whole Bella Swan trend where Abercrombie tops from like 10 years ago are being sold for hundreds of dollars on Depop."

8. "I don't know if it's gotten beyond New Zealand, but here a lot of young guys are wearing matching shorts and shirts with fruit prints on them. I see it all the time. It's so bizarre. Pineapple has been especially popular this season."

9. "I don't like the makeup trend that makes everyone look identical. Using too-dark foundation for white people or too light for Black/brown people; contouring their faces so that their noses are really thin; their lips are all perfectly round (no Cupid's bow?!). And their eyes are very heavily shadowed. I admire the skill required to do the makeup, but it disturbs me how everyone wants to look the same, plus the altering of skin tone."

10. "Going to Target to get a sundress and only finding dresses with huge collars, huge sleeves, and a hem that goes to your shins. Guess I’m going to a party with Anne of Green Gables. (Hey babe, wanna come to my house tonight? This dress covers eeeeverything!)"

11. "Making Champion expensive AF all of a sudden just because some teen said so."

12. "Bike shorts with heels and a blazer."

13. "Designer shoes that are made to look used/dirty. People spend $400+ on those. I seriously don’t get it…"

14. "Bass Pro Shop hats. You don’t like Bass Pro Shop. You don’t fish. You probably don’t even like the hat. You’re just dressing up in a TikToker costume essentially."

15. "The intentionally messy/spiky eyebrows trend. I have naturally super-thick, dark eyebrows and love natural-looking brows, but this trend uses gloss or hairspray or 'soap' to make the eyebrows appear jagged and all over the place. I'm just not a fan."

16. "ANKLE JEANS. When I was growing up "high water pants" were not cool. Now I can't find a pair of pants that go down to my shoes. I am a fairly cold person — why do I have to show off my ankles?"

A pair of legs in cropped jeans

17. "I cannot understand the trend around rolling up beanies and hardly wearing them on your head."

18. "Been seeing a lot of those black leather trousers lately, and all I can’t think of is Ross from Friends."

19. "Fila shoes. No idea why people like those bulky abominations so much. They make ya look like a Kingdom Hearts character."

And finally...

20. "Fast fashion as a whole. Nothing but a pure waste of resources."
