There are a lot of interesting fashion trends nowadays, surrounded by a ton of hype and a ton of people following them. But trust me, in 20 years time, we won’t find these fashion trends cool, we’ll just laugh at the thought of them.
Here are some that will definitely make the cut.
1. The Kylie lip obsession
Remember the Kylie Lip Challenge? That thing where girls would stick their mouth inside something with a smaller circumference to make their lips bigger and more like Kylie Jenner. This photo is a perfect representation of what actually happened.

2. Excessive contouring
Another trend that we can blame the Kardashians for is the magical dark art of contouring. It’s not a bad idea at its core, but some beauty gurus took it to the extreme, as you can see:

3. Excessive highlighting
Along with the marvels of contouring came its evil twin sister — the highlight. While highlighter is a pretty cool thing, in most cases, it’s just unnecessary.

Because wearing jeans that make you look like a blob is fun!

7. Applying makeup with stuff that isn’t a makeup brush
Like for example… a condom.

8. Crop tops
Especially those with some kind of slang word on them, like the one pictured. Contrary to all this, I really like crop tops and a lot of girls look amazing wearing them, but the concept makes no sense to me still, and anyway, it’s another one of those things that will get mocked in 20 years.

11. Massive clear lenses
They can look cool in some cases, but if you need to go out in the sun, just get a proper pair of shades!

13. The man bun
This was cute for a while, but guys in 20 years will wonder why they didn’t chop it sooner, or they might do so now.

14. The marble pattern
This has to be the most overrated pattern for anything ever. Why is it everywhere?

15. Thigh high socks and boots
Part of me wishes that this trend doesn’t die, because we look amazing wearing them.

16. Leggings worn as pants
For those girls that are all about the #gymlife.

After these hit their next stage of evolution with the men romper, I think it’s time they died out.
18. Ripped jeans and fishnets
Every time I see a girl wearing fishnets, I want to take them off her and use them for their actual purpose: catching fish!

As in plastering your face with powder and then waiting for it to “bake”.

20. Body suits
21. Plastic clothing
Like… why? Why would you wear this?
22. Drop-crotch pants.
Hey guys look I’m JB! Why would you wear pants that are this massively uncomfortable?

27. The unicorn and mermaid obsession
I just don’t get it, and especially not the “my spirit animal is a mermaid/unicorn”. Grow up…

28. Holographic clothing
A bad attempt at futuristic clothing. A very bad attempt.

29. Pastel hair
Sometimes this can look cool, but it’s just a bit impractical and this tends to be a highly mocked thing on the internet.

30. Cultural appropriation.
A culture is not a costume and it’s not yours for the taking — let’s agree to leave the feather headdress at home next festival season.
