Some trends never really go out of style (some even after 70 years), but I think we can all agree that others we’ve all been guilty of wearing should be left, well, in the past. We’ll only know which fashion items truly have staying power after living past them. You either look back fondly or you cringe; there’s really no in-between. Recently, we’ve been having a major case of the former, specifically for the ’90s. We’ve looked back on celebs and their loungewear style and revisited a few forgotten trends from the decade.
Since it took well over a decade after the ’90s ended for us to reconsider its fashion, I wanted to know which trends we’re wearing today that will go down in fashion history. Which items will be remembered fondly, and which will be discussed with a touch of embarrassment? I know I have a few thoughts on the matter, but I thought it’d be fun to have fashion experts and Who What Wear editors place bets on the outcome of trends we’ve worn since 2010.
Behold: the 2010s fashion trends that have the most potential to earn a cringe or two, from the most offensive to the least.
