What fashion fad do you wish you could forget?

I used up my lifetime quota for hairspray during the years between 1987 and 1992.

I wish I could forget skinny jeans but people keep wearing them.

Especially on men- just ew. There is a relatively small percentage of the population that skinny jeans look good on.

Couldn't agree more. Yuck.

It's funny...thinking back there were so many fashion rules to follow! no white between Labor day and Easter...if midis or maxis were in, then the other was out. If your jeans were around your ankles, then they were "high water pants" and awful! Isn't it wonderful we can basically wear anything nowpolka dots with stripes...are you kidding me, we would have been laughed out of town for thatThe fashion fad I most want to forget is how unforgiving we were!

The gigantic eyeglasses of the 1980s are the fashion item I'd refuse to wear again.

Skinny jeans and low rise jeans. And the stripper heels that seem to be so popular these days.

I love skinny jeans.

I think the worst things are Uggs, pleated front pants, destroyed denim (and any "whiskered" denim), Ed Hardy, Crocs, those shoes with the toes, anything that says Juicy or Pink on the butt, Juicy tracksuits, ... I could go on but that's probably enough for now. (And I've never worn any of these things.)

But again, skinny jeans are awesome.

I have to admit to two--regrettably--please don't judge--lol's

1. The red corduroy platform shoes I owned in the 1970's. Yes, they had red corduroy on the platform part, and on the top the bow was made with red corduroy floral material. I thought I was soooo cool!!

2. My red Sally Jessie glasses that appear in the ALL the photo's with my kids when they were little--WHY didn't someone tell us we looked ridiculous.


What I wish I could wear again--oh yeah, that would be my Calvin Klein's/Gloria Vanderbilt jean. You remember the 'nothing comes between me and my Calvin' era jean--those were amazing!!

Pants/stretch pants tucked into socks with sneakers.

Really.




I miss the button-down long shirt with collar with sleeves cuffed up worn over tight jeans. That looked good on me and was so easy and put-together.


I can't remember any fashion from the 90's at all. Why is that? The 70's and 80's yes.

Hammer pants.

And I LOVE skinny jeans. I wear them all winter. I have about 10 pairs of them.

I had those shoes but in blue!!!! I got them in 74 or 75. I loved those things.

My wish I could forget were the big eye glasses where the ear pieces connected at the bottom of the lens frame. Absolutely hideous.

I think it would have to be the HUGE shoulder pads. Back then I had a tiny, tiny waist (ah, those were the days....) and I looked like a football linebacker. Also, it was the end of the world if I left the house without my purse and shoes exactly matching. I don't miss having to worry about that.
