CRIMES AGAINST FASHION: Fashion Faux Pas I’ve Committed…

Never Been Kissed – Drew Barrymore – White Jeans After Labor Day

When I was younger, I thought I was super fashionable. I took part in any and every fashion trend that I knew of and did my best to do it well. At the same time, I had my own strange fashion taste which often consisted of weird outfits and accessories, but then didn’t we all? In the time before someone can tell you that you have horrid fashion sense ( or perhaps it’s simply a time before we care what others think of us ), I think we’ve all made some pretty poor fashion choices and here are mine, in all their glory.

Velvet Bell Bottoms

I had a purple pair of these bad boys that I would rock all. the. time. My brother made fun of me on a near daily basis, but hey, velvet is soft and comfortable so what do I care? I am not sure why I did so much bell bottom wearing as a kid, but I think it had a lot to do with the fact that my mom is such a hippie and was constantly buying me bell bottom peace sign jeans. Thankfully, I’ve grown out of this. I now hate bell bottoms and, frankly, they don’t fit my body type now. I think it’s such a weird fashion trend that only certain people can pull off, much less the velvet version of them, but to be honest, if I still had these purple velvet pants and could fit them, I would totally rock them when nobody was looking. Don’t judge me – They were SO SOFT!

Nude Beige Track Pants

I really loved track pants back in the day and I think it had something to do with my love of Sporty Spice. Which is also why I wore Adidas for so long… But anyway, track pants are just weird looking. I feel like only dancers and runners can pull that look off appropriately, but really nobody should be wearing them in beige or nude. I don’t even know why I owned them in this color. I once wore them to school and bled through them. THANKS MENSTRUATION. I also had the awkward pleasure of a boy in my class telling me I was bleeding through them. Talk about aca-awkward.

Plaid, Bandana & Paisley Halter Tops

This is a fashion trend that seemed to be really popular with girls my age and I can’t think why now, but it was. It probably goes back to all the pop stars and girl bands because weird patterns were really “IN” in the early 2000’s. I owned both a red bandana shaped halter top and a colorful flower paisley halter top, both of which shaped into little diamond shapes. To give you an idea, it looked something like this, only slightly longer, though I do recall older girls straight up wearing bandanas as tops. It is SO weird to think of now and kind of odd to think I was 10 wearing that, but whatever.

Vacation T-Shirts

This is when I was super young, but I did get made fun of and bullied for it a LOT. My parents frequently traveled for business and, because of that, they often brought me back t-shirts. They usually just said the title of the town, city or state they had been to and that might be more fashionable now, but it wasn’t then. I often forgot it was “Picture Day” (for non-Americans, that’s when they take your photo for the yearbook) and would just wear one of these vacation shirts because that’s literally what I wore all the time. All day err-day. In fact, my second grade yearbook photo is me in a Raging Waters (water park here in California) t-shirt.

Running Shorts

I don’t know why I wore stretchy running type shorts so much as a child. I really don’t know how I even got hold of them. I was only about 7 or 8 and I wore them all the time, probably because they are super comfortable, especially because I did a lot of running around when I was younger. I got seriously bullied for it and people literally didn’t want to be my friend because of it, but they were comfortable so I wore them. I had them in a massive amount of different colors from black to pink, purple, and I even think I had them in green.

Thankfully, I’ve grown up and evolved and… I’m now a more fashionable person with good enough sense to avoid khaki, bell bottoms, plaid and uhm..white jeans.
