Celeb fashion trends we hope will die in 2019

As supermodel Heidi Klum would say: “In fashion, one day you’re in and the next day you’re out.” So with the start of a brand new year, we look back at the fashion trends that celebs have been rocking and weed out the styles have outstayed their welcome. Time to move on, everyone!

Ugly sneakers

When this trend first made waves, we thought it was a joke. Then just about every designer brand spawned their own version of the chunky shoe and now it has way overstayed its welcome.

Oversized fashion

There is oversized chic and there is drowning in clothes that are 5x too big. This is definitely the latter. And it looks ridiculous.

We once overheard someone say these teensy baby shades make one look like one of the three blind mice. We can’t say we disagree.

Pedal pushers 

This is one ‘90s trend that should go back to where it came from. It is not flattering and looks good on no one – not even the lithe and leggy Carrie Wong.

Berets aren’t bad per se but then they started popping up on so many celebs’ heads and infiltrating our Instagram feed, they became more poser Parisian than tres chic.

Flatforms

Flatforms take the ugly shoe trend to new heights. Not only are they aesthetically unpleasant, they are also a hazard to walk in. It is beyond us why people are still wearing these.

Logomania

We get it. You can afford it. But nothing screams “fashion victim” more than a big flashy logo, or in this case, thousands of them. Subtlety is key when it comes to wearing designer; you don’t want to look like a walking advertisement.

What’s tackier than ugly sneakers? Ugly sneakers + tube socks.

“Dad fashion”

Along with the orthopaedics-style trainers, came “dad fashion”: think anoraks, cargo pants, and the T-shirt-inside-another-shirt style. We just can’t wrap our heads around why anyone would want to consciously dress like their papas.

Tracksuit pants

They used to be cool and sexy for a while when worn unbuttoned on the side or styled with dressed up accessories, but now they just feel tired.

Sock sneakers

Another ugly-luxe shoe trend that made us cringe in horror are these slip-on sneakers that look like ankle socks attached to rubber soles. They are probably very comfortable, but they give us flashbacks of the booties we used to wear while sailing.

Guys in overalls  

We can accept ladies in overalls, but grown men who aren't farmers, mechanics or clowns? Disturbing. And no, wearing it with one side unhooked doesn’t make it any better.
