With the catwalks awash with many 1980s tributes and Instagram stuffed with scrunchies, banana clips and pairs of high-waisted acid-washed jeans, it seems no trend from the 1980s, 1990s or 2000s is too small. . horrible or, indeed, too unflattering to be resurrected.
Mom jeans, which are absolutely no favors to anyone, seem to hang on to life in the fall / winter collections, while patchwork, a 1970s staple, has appeared on jeans, jumpsuits and jackets. .
While these rebirth battles were sadly lost, the larger style warfare continues. Here are seven trends that we hope don’t get the recovery treatment …
1. Streak highlights
Spice Girl Geri Halliwell was one of the biggest perpetrators of this crime, making you look less like you’re going to the barber and more like you’re lying in the middle of the street and waiting for a line painter of road passes randomly over your hair. The big highlights threatened to return late last year, but luckily the style became synonymous with the dreaded Karen and her “Can I talk to the manager” hair, which ended her attempts to develop.
2. MC Hammer pants
You can call them harem pants or parachute pants as you like, but they’ll be MC Hammer pants forever. Without disrespecting the man who created one of the most enduring bops of all time, in the end, his pants of choice weren’t what you would call flattering. Don’t get me wrong, they were perfect for performing on stage thanks to all that wiggle room for his iconic ant dance in your pants, but it’s just not a good look for the rest of us.
3. Men tie sweaters around their necks
This style, which arguably says “preppy by day, wannabe psycho by night” was adored by villains from 1980s teen movies, the kind that would smash your face in your locker and say things like, “Get out of my way. , loser, before my grandpa buys this school and turns it into my personal hot tub. Come on, Chad, let’s go fondue. On the surface it’s a lot less casual than you might think. Just a black ball at country club away from Patrick Bateman.
4. Juicy Couture tracksuits
Bonus points for being a size or three smaller for that ‘And here’s my belly’ vibe, the Juicy Couture tracksuit was the athleisure of choice for the hot young Hollywood, when the hot young Hollywood was really fun, towards the late 1990s. Paris, Nicole, Britney, Lindsay, J-Lo… anyone who is still vaguely someone wore them. Popular colors included pink, yellow, white, and baby blue, each paired with expensive handbags and trucker caps. Never again, please.
When you are so busy farming a mullet that you manage to lose Liam Hemsworth, then it’s time to look at your life choices, Miley Cyrus. The mullet, all the upfront business and the party in the back, has been on the periphery of the comeback hairstyles, threatening to mainstream for quite some time now, but never quite make it. And for that, we can breathe a collective sigh of relief.
6. Electrical combinations
The ironic thing about this 1980s staple is that it was arguably helpless, with its uncomfortable shoulder pads, stiff shape, and crisp, ruthless cut. Even Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson would have a hard time looking and feeling powerful in this area.
Supported by designers such as Giorgio Armani, Ralph Lauren, Anne Klein and Donna Karan, and finding cinematic fame in the 1988 film A hard worker, the skirt (or pants) and jacket combo was meant to entice everyone to sit down and notice when the wearer entered the conference room. We prefer to wear a large hat or in bright colors, to be honest – anything that doesn’t require epaulets.
Be scared, be very scared, because the male perm is back. This time, however, he was dubbed the Cherubim Cup and was spotted on the heads of Harry Styles, Justin Bieber, Troye Sivan, and BTS’s V. Anyone interested in trying out the style should note that it is locked hair that has grown out a bit and no, we repeat no, Bradley Cooper in American Hustle.
