Every season, the world’s introduced to a new style that soon becomes a trend. It could be something that a celebrity wore on a casual day out or a new hairdo like ‘The Rachel’. We’ve been blessed with a number of wonderful styles that still haven’t died (and never should), but we’ve also seen some cringe-worthy ones. With a number of old trends slowly making a comeback, here are 5 trends we hope to never, ever see again…
1. Thick hair streaks
 

1. Thick hair streaks

Remember when having thick blonde or caramel-coloured “streaks” was a thing? What a crazy time, right? Although hair colour will never go out of style, thanks to balayage and its many variations, we’re hoping this leg of the trend never makes a comeback.

2. Super long tops/dresses over jeans
 

2. Super long tops/dresses over jeans

Let’s cut to the chase—dresses are supposed to be worn by themselves—no bottoms needed. Period. What about long tops? Well, there are many options for you to style them these days, but on top of jeans, they’re a complete no-no.

3. Velour tracksuits
 

3. Velour tracksuits

We’re all really familiar with those Juicy Couture tracksuits that were all the rage 8-10 years ago, aren’t we? And thanks to infamous celebrities like Kim Kardashian, and Paris Hilton, this style soon became a trend. However, let’s face it. A velour tracksuit isn’t ideal casual or workout wear, is it? Other than the fact that it’s made of velour, the colours you got them in weren’t exactly pretty, and we’re super glad that we got to kiss these tracksuits goodbye.

4. Wedge sneakers

Were they wedges? Or were they sneakers? Confusingly, they were both—and we don’t know why, or how they became a style that everyone went crazy for. Sneakers have a purpose. They’re supposed to be flat, casual, comfy footwear. Wedges on the other hand, are a type of high-heeled footwear, and are flirtier, and less casual than sneakers. So, a mix of both is strange, and unnecessary, and we’re grateful that we don’t see them anymore.

5. Low-rise bottoms
 

5. Low-rise bottoms

While we’re all about healthy body image and embracing your curves, low-rise bottoms cut us in the worst place possible, resulting in a disastrous muffin-top. And that look is just not flattering. We’re so happy it found the door and got replaced by those uber flattering, high waist pants.
