Admitting Some Fashion Trends Do Not Work For Me

As fashion trends come and go I have deep debates with myself whether to jump on the bandwagon or not. Most of the time it’s a no from me as I either cannot pull of the look, or I just feel uncomfortable trying to do it. This leaves me looking at most girls from the side line with envy as they can wear it all with ease.

As I scrolled through Instagram this morning I realised there are a few trends that have stuck around for longer than I anticipated, yet despite this I still have no desire to join in. I then concluded with myself that I can appreciate these trends and just accept that not everything will suit everyone!


The trends that just do not work for me…

Cycling Shorts – they are incredibly comfortable but I felt like I was aged 6 again in my P.E class. I tried, but its just not one for me! Although look at Princess Diana, she knew how to rock these.

Cat Eye Sunglasses – I must have a funny shaped head as these look ridiculous on me. take a look at Lydia Elise Millen rocking them, I think they were made for her… @Lydiaemillen

Dad Trainers – despite the chunky, heavy feet feeling, I just don’t think  am cool enough for this one haha!

Shop the post:


Camouflage Trousers – I felt like Laura Croft but looked liked fancy dress gone wrong.

Are there any trends you wish you could wear but just aren’t for you?

    I definitely can’t pull off cycling shorts or cat eye sunglasses, but that’s okay as not every trend is going to work for everyone. such a fun post! xx

    So I think that the whole idea of style is to be able to understand what works for you but also what doesn’t work for you and I think that by identifying that you’re so on point! I’m with you there on bicycle shorts, its a trend that just doesn’t work for me!

    I’m with you on most of these. I love a larger cat-eye but a few months ago when the super thin cat-eye shape was really in all I could do was raise my eyebrows because I think they look absolutely hideous! There are some trends that are going to age REALLY badly (I think dad trainers, for one) and people can spend money on them and jump on the bandwagon and look cool for one season, but that’s not really for me and I’m happy to sit these ones out!
