10 Trends that Need to Stop

From impossible notions on beauty to just really awful fashion...


(SPOT.ph) Things come and go in a never-ending cycle. Like trends. Styles in the ’60s come back in the ’80s. Themes in the ’20s (like Prohibition speakeasies) are back in a big way. The best part is that you know they’re fleeting and they’ll go away eventually. There are, however, just some things that choose to overstay their welcome. From bad standards to bad fashion, we round up 10 things that we're tired of seeing.




Insanely large arm holes for both men and women

Or undershirts worn, well, not under-and not at the beach or gym either. In a world strangely obsessed with smaller arms, you’d think people would wear ones that actually fit. We’re giving men the benefit of the doubt. They must’ve worked really hard at the gym to bring out those cuts. The guns are out, but we’re not liking it.

Let’s just say that men we’re meant to show off their bottom bits in body-hugging trousers. Weren’t skinny jeans enough? Try this for an eyesore: graphic meggings.


Useful, but irritating. Use with caution (and discretion).



We know the practical advantages of a monopod. First, everybody gets to be in the photo. Second, you don’t have to ask strangers to take the photo. Third, it can make a pretty rad defensive weapon. Let’s just keep things subtle. And try not to hit anyone.



Are you Jude Law? We think not.


Men wearing excessively low necklines

What are you trying to show off? The lack of chest hair? The abundance of chest hair?

Thigh gaps

Our thighs are in love. It’s in a healthy relationship with pizza, steak, French fries, and each other. They want to be close like two peas in a pod. Deal with it.

Drop Crotch Pants

Inversely though, who would want some extra unflattering baggage down there? We know we don't.


We know it’s you, Gisele!


Wedge sneakers

The fat line between sneakers and heels is comfort. These abominations have blurred that distinction, and we see women clunking around in these high-heeled trainers, looking comfortable but feeling otherwise. Let’s keep this in the memory chest with old Spice Girls cassette tapes.




Exposed underwear

Bras, boxers, briefs. We don’t care. It’s Victoria’s secret isn’t it? We don’t care how colorful and lacy it is. This requires no explanation-although, we’d take this over exposed butt cracks.

Bikini bridge

Defined as the gaps between the pelvic bones and abdomen, this skinnier-than-skinny trend just sets a practically impossible standard for women who want to be healthy.



Boom panes

We’re still a little unsure of its actual definition, but apparently it’s a strange way of saying you got owned. You got served. Anything that has the word "panes" in it doesn’t sound pleasant at all.
