Reading the other thread got me thinking, and I know that I will never wear:
Bleached jeans
velvet tops (looks like velour)
"embroidered" clothes, especially jeans
Puff padded jackets
Overpriced polyester lace dresses (net curtains!)

Brogues and loafers (I have big feet and skinny ankles so they do me no favours)
Anything with ruffles
Anything yellow (makes me look dead)

Thing is, you say you will never wear them again until the fashion comes back round again. I said i would never wear bootcut (70s fashion) skinnies (80s fashion) Midi skirts, denim shirts, light denim anything, flowery big print dresses (70s) mini skirts etc etc etc. But guess what, I did cause they all came around again and again and they will continue to do that.

I can definitely say I'll never wear a crop top no matter how fashionable they are. Because if I couldn't wear one as a very slim 17 year old (skinny waist and big boobs resulted in crop top hanging tent like and the underside of my bra being visible because the tops didn't actually contain enough fabric to cover my boobs) then I definitely won't be wearing one now that I'm many years older and many inches wider. And I think everyone will benefit from my decision grin

Skinny jeans (look like a fat carrot)
Crop tops
Boob tubes
Mini skirts
Halter neck tops

Lottapianos Thu 04-Aug-16 13:43:46

Same here treacle. Surely they only actually work on about 2% of the population, and yet the shops are full of them!

Ah yes, crop top. Not in a million years. And whilst we're at it, body suits. I had one when they were last in fashion. Not ever again, no way.

GhettoFabulous Thu 04-Aug-16 14:02:49

Bias cut. Turns my curves into lumps. And anything brown. I have brown hair and eyes and feel like a massive jobby.

Treaclesoda, I never post on this board but have to now, just to say, wow, wonderful description of me 20 years ago! I'd blocked it out along with a night out from hell in Bolton in 1997 wearing a turquoise very tight aqua marine blue, deep v neck top from Bay Trading. Thank feck for the breast reduction. As you were...

Motherwithflaws Thu 04-Aug-16 17:13:28

Crop tops, crocs, dungarees.

Floisme Thu 04-Aug-16 19:19:15

Blimey some long lists here! I think the only things I would categorically rule out are high heels and polo necks. And I can't ever see myself wearing mini skirts again. But that's about it. It's not just fashion that changes, your body and your colouring does too so different things suit you.

In my twenties, I'd have probably said 'never' to pencil skirts because I had no arse back then. Well I do now!
