2012 Style Trends That Shouldn’t Make a Comeback

trends 2012

It is officially 2013! Trends come and go, resurface or evolve as years’ progress. 2012 has had its hits and misses as far as style trends just like any other year. Here are five trends from 2012 that should not live on in 2013

1. Wedge Sneakers

Somehow, these bad boys are really popular, but they need to be kicked to the curb. Wedge sneakers are not cute. A sneaker is supposed to be a sneaker and a wedge shoe is supposed to just be a wedge. I don’t see why someone would combine a sneaker and a wedge together to create some so-called masterpiece. The ones with straps are an ultimate fail. They just aren’t stylish at all.

2. Neon Lace

When worn tastefully, lace can be classy. However, neon lace does not cut it. Outrageously bright lace is not trendy. Neon lace seems like it would be suitable for a Halloween costume, not an everyday staple in your closet. If you’re into neon lace, that’s one thing, but it’s not something that you could wear to a job interview and expect to get hired.

3. Low Rise Jeans

Low-rise jeans are one of those trends that happens to fade and make a comeback. If the jeans don’t fit, get a bigger size. Point blank period.  Butt crack exposure is not cute.

4. Slashed Sleeve Sweaters

Slashed sleeve sweaters look somewhat tacky. The purpose of a sweater is for warmth and you aren’t getting much warmth from a sweater with slashed sleeves.  I think those sweaters should stay in the past.

5. Pilgrim Shoes

Thanksgiving comes around once a year and I’m sure many are not thankful for these.  Pilgrim shoes have graced different catwalks in 2012, but theyI don’t know if the pilgrims would be glad that their shoes have resurfaced or would be embarrassed. High-heeled bucked loafers don’t sound trendy whatsoever.

These five trends made the cut for 2012 trends that must hit the road! What are some more trends from 2012 that shouldn’t make a comeback this year?
