What I Wore

Unpopular Opinions on Fashion Trends


I like to go against the fray and wear what is in tune with my personal aesthetic. At times this totally defies current trends; and I am fully aware of this. However; have you ever seen a burgeoning fashion trend that you couldn’t get behind, because you didn’t get it?

These are some trends that have me befuddled due to their popularity.


Sweatpants, heels and feminine pieces seem like an unlikely match. Why one would wear both styles together is beyond me. I must say that I do like the relaxed fit of the sweatpants with a heel; but when the sweatpants are adorn with a racing stripes or a brand’s logo. It does not create a very cohesive and just confuses me.


I do own one; but I kind of hate myself for it. But seriously, puffer coats are getting a high-fashion makeover with voluminous shoulders, wide crops, and a range of colors that make them infinitely cooler than the ones you wore in college. I applaud the puffer jacket for having the vigor to allow itself to be reinvented; but some things are better left alone. Luckily, we are on the brink of spring and will not see these for a while.

IMG_3474Sheer pieces are alluring but there is a point when it takes a tragic turn from alluring to a little raunchy. I like pushing the envelope. There is such a thing as going to far; which is why this trend is driving me nuts. We are seeing a resurgence of see-through everything and p*ssy peeking gowns. What was once a daring on occasion wow factor’ type of ensemble, is now ALL that we’re seeing.

Now, here comes the hypocrisy. I have dabbled in each of these supposed trends. It’s not that I do not like trends; but I do not  believe in blindly following trends simply because we’re expected to sunscribe to them. If I’m going to wear a p*ssy peeking gown; it’s going to be of my own volition and not because Kim Khardashion wore it –  thank you very much!

    I love your wording “tragic turn from alluring to a little raunchy.” The whole “under” wardrobe has taken on so much importance for basic everyday wear! I hope people don’t give the “unders” a skip…Even for holiwood it seems a little more desperate than deserving of notice.

      I couldn’t agree more. I support daring wardrobe decisions but you have to draw the line somewhere.
