Current trends I dislike

I have recently been asking myself why I continue to habitually waste my money on the likes of Grazia and LOOK magazines when 90% of them are taken up by either adverts or clothing trends I wouldn't be seen dead in.

Here are a few trends that have cropped up recently that I detest.

1. US army style military camouflage jackets are suddenly all the rage. What's next, orange jumpsuits..?


2. Heel-less wedges. WHY?! Someone please explain this fugly trend to me. Is it some sort of cost-saving plan to cut back on materials?
3. Wellington boots as.. boots. Call me old fashioned the but last time I checked, wellies exclusively belonged on the farm and in the rain. Now, all of a sudden Hunters have become a fashion statement and people wear them as a "fashionable" alternative to normal boots.


 4. Men jumping on the fashion bandwagon. I know that it is really double standards of me to hold this opinion but I hate when men follow fashion and wear next level man-bags and LV belts. Ew. 

No.
Yuck.
What the flip is he wearing..?
 
Bingo! The shoes are naff but this is a nice outfit all round.
   
5. Panelled trousers. Those trousers with stripes down the sides that are supposed to make you look less fat. No offence or anything but an optical illusion is one thing and delusion is something.. a lot closer to reality.



6. Fully grown women wearing frilly girls socks thinking it's cute.  


Excuse me while I go and vomit.

lol. I agree with most not all of what u said, but even so I like that you tell us how it is lol. Every time im honest ppl get bloody offended! I must disagree on pic 5 though, I think he looks hot, love the outfit, glasses and his bag is an overnighter so all good. But totes agree on men with bum bags ewsies!!

Stylish Muslimah said...

Sabina: Aw glad I do! :D

Sorayya: That's so true! But after blogging for so long I've learnt to accept that you can't please everyone. I really like you're blog btw, it's one of my favourites to read :)

Salam x

Also, pic 5 guy is not hot! Any masculinity he had was removed with the dusty pink scarf and murdered with the handbag. Makes me cringe :S

Whatever floats your boat though haha!

Roshni said...

Ahhh..I HATE the army trend. Too damn right, sista!

Most of these I haven't seen. Does that mean Canadians are more fashionable? I hate the army stuff too and don't understand why Muslims keep wearing it. Like look at me I'm wearing the clothes that the army wears that kills my people.aren't I cool? Then they play black ops. ahh..you're killing yourself you know, right? clueless!

Stylish Muslimah said...

Hmm, call it what you like, it just looks too feminine for my liking LOL xD

Again you really made me laugh! Even if you posted a trend I liked in one of these segments I think I would still piss my pants laughing. Your commentary is priceless keep them coming! Xx

Stylish Muslimah said...

HijabRevival: Lol! Thanks man xD Glad you liked it!

I loved this post! You should make it a regular. Sometimes I am in shock what ppl find trendy. I agree on all of the above and most especially about men being into fashion just as women are. I'm sorry...but men are becoming more and more feminine in every way. I just took a course on the Seerah - compare those men to our men today - it is kind of sad. I am watching my brothers who are more fashion forward than me as I write this (lol)! Just to add so as not to be biased - women def. need to step it up too. :)

Platform Girl said...

I'm actually not too fond of the flatform look in the last pic! :) give me good old platform shoes or normal looking heels any day

Stylish Muslimah said...

Platform girl: Definitely! I despise flatforms too! Women should be able to walk in heels (or at least wedges) :D

Maryam said...

Nice post and funny, And I agree with you, I hate the feminized look on men. But putting pictures of men makes it hard too lower the gaze lol, don't you think? This led to one on of the sisters above that consider one of the guys hot :-)

Stylish Muslimah said...

Maryam: Haha! I guess I see your point but I'm talking about their clothes not their faces xD
