Styles you don't admire?

First of all I apologise for the title of this post, I couldn't think of a better way to explain it! Do you have a style that is popular at the moment that you absolutely loathe ? The reason I ask this is because, today I have been out in my local town and noticed a lot of women wearing a certain type of look, but not sure how to describe it. Quilted fitted jackets, tightish or bootleg jeans, some sort of boots, animal print scarf, designer handbag and gold jewellery. I'm really not keen on this look, but they might not be keen on mine, so each to their own! Just wondered if anyone else feels this way about certain looks?

I know it's not clothes but I really am not a fan of those big scary eyebrows that are fashionable.

Im really not liking this hairstyle at the moment.

Everyone round here seems to wear it with turned up slightly baggy trousers, no socks, brogues and an oversized cocoon coat. It's a uniform.

Comedy eyebrows we call them in our house.....

Coated jeans sweaty

Leggings and tunic dresses- has definitely had it's day!

Looks dated IMHO!

Oh god yes, the eyebrows. Christ.

The skin tight tartan leggings about now are not great.

I can't stand those huge cottage-loaf style buns that a lot of young women are doing at the mo. They look absolutely awful.

Quite right cherry grin

Ombré hair. Just looked like roots, no matter how expensively you had it done.

And yes quilted jackets! Just the antithesis of style.

I also don't like puffa type ones but I did crack last year and got a Zara duvet thing, not convinced by it though, I think sometimes I am a bit of a sheep and buy things because everyone else does hmm

Caterpillar eyebrows

Also leggings. I don't like them.

I do like the top knot though (well not epic ones but a messy bun can be nice)

I don't really like body con dresses. I like a more floaty style.

As long as people are clean I don't really mind what they wear.

TheJumped Fri 28-Feb-14 20:28:44

And tea dresses. I can't stand the bloody things, they set my teeth on edge! Anything 'ditsy' or that fluffy green or mustard cardigan type look.

Oh god the giant buns, they're getting ridiculous! I like a bun, and will quite often do a messy bun which because I have lots of hair is quite big but still looks...normal!

It's that giant donut bun with the hole in the middle. Looks like a puckered asshole!

Ballet pumps or brogues or any other form of court shoes without socks or tights until it's much much warmer!

You just look like you are to poor to afford boots and you make me feel cold!

DD2 thin lace up pumps and tiny trainer liners aren't much better, put your high tops or your boots on!

I confess to a doughnut bun yesterday, I'd forgotten I had to go out and need to make very grubby hair look faintly tidy.

Fucking Cath Kidson. Wish the franchise would just die already. Granny chic for 14 year olds.

Those trousers all the teenage boys and young men seem to wear. They come in various shades of diarrhoea brown and mustard, and are low slung and baggy round the crotch - loose enough that you could easily fit a full nappy inside. The bottoms of the legs are skin tight, and it gives the effect of a bow-legged incontinent sparrow.

AnnabelleDarling Fri 28-Feb-14 20:41:17

Scarves, loved them until very recently, now the seem frumpy

pseudonymity Fri 28-Feb-14 20:41:24

I do the bun thing, not the donut thing but the topknot. I'm also guilty of the baggy turned up trousers and cocoon coat thing. Baaaah

My pet hate at the moment is skater dresses and skirts that cut peoples legs off at the widest point. Most people can't pull it off. So it's not the look itself I suppose.

ChishandFips33 Fri 28-Feb-14 20:41:32

Fake uggs that wear on one side and end up with the uppers being walked on

Looks like a puckered asshole!
Haha! I will NEVER see these buns in any other way now!!

The eyebrows but I'm guilty of skinny jeans and tunics/short dresses so each to their own

Agree if people are clean then that's all that matters. I do admire those people who seem to throw anything on and look fab. I like to think I do, but deep down know that's not true!

southeastastra Fri 28-Feb-14 20:42:29

mens pants on show, always bloody calvin klein. not nice

i want to pull them down

ilovethewinter Fri 28-Feb-14 20:43:29

Blimey, think I've started something! I forgot about the eyebrows!!,what are they about? I work with a girl who has them, its almost as if she's shaved her natural ones off and had new ones tattooed on, I find myself staring. Also those shiny black ? patent boots with gold buckles on, I really don't like those.

The whole 90's revival is just horrendous.

Long spiky finger nails, a la Rhianna. Boak
