What trends would you like to see die a death in 2018?

For me:

Frills on tops
Big, stupid sleeves

'Dipped hem' tops. I think that's what they're called? Where the back of the top is longer than the front. I don't think they look good on anyone, but especially if you have a curvy bum. I look and feel like I'm wearing a nappy!

Big rectangular brown eyebrows.

Ankle-swinger trousers with non-visible/non-existent socks. In the depths of winter..... WTAF??!

Jaxtellerswife Sun 14-Jan-18 20:33:29

Harem trousers

Not smiling in photos.

Weird pleated skirts that some instagrammers wear. If it wasn't for the billion accessories and the sweatshirt with something pithy written on it, those skirts could have been nicked from my Auntie Sandra.

See also brogues.

Cold shoulder tops and dresses.
Agree those big sleeve things.

Basically hope 2018 sees a return to normal sleeves! No excess material and no cut-outs anywhere.

Cold shoulder tops. Don't mind some frills and think wide legged crops can look fabulous (but I've not tried them myself yet) but I never think cold shoulder tops look anything othe than daft even on the young thin, and gorgeous.

CountFosco Sun 14-Jan-18 20:38:02

And brogues are fucking awesome.

woodhill Sun 14-Jan-18 20:38:24

Polyester and acrylic

Boxy shapes and high necks

MrsMarigold Sun 14-Jan-18 20:38:31

Cold shoulder frilly tops and dresses, fierce eyebrows and contouring.

peachypetite Sun 14-Jan-18 20:39:03

Cold shoulder tops! Awful!

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sun 14-Jan-18 20:40:24

Cold shoulder tops.
Silly sleeves.
Jumpers that barely reach one's belly button.
Bloggers who have their mouths wide open in every pic - WHY?

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sun 14-Jan-18 20:41:05

And yes to polyester. I will allow it to exist in skirts, but in tops and dresses it needs to go in Style 101 immediately.

Annabelle4 Sun 14-Jan-18 20:41:15

Cold shoulder

hugoagogo Sun 14-Jan-18 20:42:10

Skinny jeans
The rest can be easily avoided ime.

fruityb Sun 14-Jan-18 20:43:06

Hair tossing!

Dark eye make up and mismatched foundation. Highlighter that makes you look like you’ve been dipped in gold paint.

Tongue between teeth when smiling - what is that even about!

Mirror selfies where you can see the phone and they’re looking at the phone!

MikeUniformMike Sun 14-Jan-18 20:45:12

Cold-shoulders and Bardo tops
tops with pleats at the neckline
cropped trousers
Statement sleeves

Butterfly1975 Sun 14-Jan-18 20:45:28

Skinny jeans
Massive eyebrows
Cold shoulders
Pointless slogans on tops
Shoes/boots with unnecessary bits cut out of them

..oh and yy to polyester and acrylic!

Crop tops. It's probably my fault for still shopping in Top Shop. You think you've found a nice top then you examine it and it's half a top.

gingerclementine Sun 14-Jan-18 20:46:56

Huge black eyebrows that look like they were drawn on with a Sharpie. I saw a woman the other day, no make up on, just these bizarre black stripes on her forehead, against her very pale English winter skin. Really not a good look.

MikeUniformMike Sun 14-Jan-18 20:47:23

Slightly open mouths in photos. Eeurgh!

ChickenVindaloo2 Sun 14-Jan-18 20:50:36

Cold shoulder tops.
Skinny jeans - bring back flares and bootcut.
OTT make-up and hair.
Feel bad for saying this but - breton tops. Bored.
