Howdy ya’ll, I’m back
I’m hoppin’ up in your feed for a shower thought of sorts:
What trends do not suit you?
Are there certain things society has labeled “trendy” or “in” that either
A.) You can’t stand
B.) doesnt look/feel right on you
C.) can’t wrap your head around?
I have a number of them, but my top 4 are cropped tops (cuz nobody wants to see my overhanging belly) , mini skirts, plunging necklines, and low-waisted jeans (again, because of my tummy).
Feel free to share any trends that you don’t jive with. Many things chain stores put out just don’t fit my style or moral standards, but I don’t buy things just to fit in. I buy things that I like and enjoy, but not just because everyone else is.
The only social media type things I have are YouTube and ribblr so I don’t actually really know any of the trends.
I do agree with you on low-waisted jeans though, I find them so uncomfortable to wear.
I’ve always just bought what’s comfy because if I buy anything “trendy” I don’t end up wearing it lol
Clothing-wise, definitely not a fan of the oversized everything trend. I just want clothes that fit me. If I wanted something oversized, I would just buy it in a bigger size.
Im right with you. I only use Youtube, Pinterest and this myself.
Seriously, if I wear them, i get red marks from trying to suck my tummy in, so thats a no-go for me i’m thankful for what i have, but it will not allow me to wear those
You’ve got a point. I have a few oversized tees for sleeping in, but when I’m going out somewhere, I like to look my best. I find that wearing stuff that fits me makes me feel more confident too
I’m not a small person so have come to prefer loose fitting clothes
People wearing totally ripped up jeans is one trend I don’t understand. If I’d tried to leave my house growing up dressed like that my parents would have made me change into better clothes. As would my current employer
Lol my parents always make jokes if I wear jeans with holes in them. I do like the ones with small rips just because they’re fun haha
I dont understand the tight tight pants and the short shorts (like i dont want to see the bottoms of your booty cheeks) (or your hooha)
Yes, that I don’t get either. They are not comfortable looking at all. Plus I hate drawing unwanted attention to myself like that.
While I personally am pro crop tops, I am not into low-rise anything. It just makes it look like I have a muffin top when I don’t, because I have what are called "hip dips” which is just like…a type of skeletal structure that some people assigned female at birth have and I’m not out here to feel bad about my BONES.
A lot of the Y2K fashion revival that’s happening just isn’t for me, but some of it is kinda okay? But not low-rise. That can go straight back into the garbage.
Western is considered a trend that is pretty “timeless”, and there are VERY few aspects of it that I think work for me or that I lean into. I love a wide brim hat, but get that cowboy hat out of my face or so help me. I get it, it’s Americana, but I’m not into that.
Fashion trends are cyclical and fast fashion basically is making them come and go even faster. None of it matters, wear what makes you happy.
One I absolutely cannot stand at all, is people faking mental disorders. This is coming from someone with severe social anxiety, people making fun of or faking panic/anxiety attacks for clout and views is just terrible. I hate people who do that, it doesnt matter what mental disorder it is its not okay at all. People are so rude/disrespectful towards mental disorders (not everyone)
ive always struggled with my weight and self image since i could remember, anything, any comment against me reslly bothers me for no legit reason lol. but agreed, low rise jeans, crop tops, tight clothing, anything like that just doesnt look good on me. if you wear it, i love the look, but too much dismorphia to myself to wear it lol
Hm… probably like low rise jeans/pants I’ve never tried them, but having pants that low down just doesn’t seem comfortable or even look right to me. They look great on some people, but I don’t think they would work for me. As far as crop tops go, I think that they look great on others and even though I could wear them, I just don’t have the confidence
YES! It really bothers me, and when people make fun of autism and act like they have autism (theres a stereotypical type of autism everyone makes fun of) and its reallg just annoying when everyone assumes autism is just the stereotypical type. Autism a spectrum disorder, meaning that everyone has different symptoms.
Exactly!! the sterotypical autistic person (when people make fun of it) makes me so mad, i have multiple friends who are austistic, and though im probably not myself it just gives me such bad vibes
So many people make fun of it. My younger cousin has autism, and someone told her she isnt autistic because she doesnt act like it. (Shes not the stereotypical type). I wanted to beat them up so bad, I dont care if they were an adult. I’d do anything to protect my cousins.
next time let me know ill find their ip address. crunchy bones. >:(
This! Also, any disorder, not just mental… As someone who passes out often, it burns me when someone comes out of a room they were in alone and gets over dramatic telling everyone how they just passed out (I try to get alone with 1 trusted person so it’s not a public spectacle, it’s embarrassing, not something to be celebrated)… I also dislike the trend of acting like mental disorders are cute or again something to be celebrated. Gone are the days when people should hide them, we need to talk about it and help people understand it, but posting on social media things like “Washed my walls today, I love manic days” by a self-diagnosed manic depressive stay-at-home mom aren’t helpful either…
Yes! Any disorder, I mostly see mental disorders. Thank you for adding that! I really appreciate it! Most people say they have a disorder when they self diagnosed
