Trends I’ve Never Followed #2


I did a post back in October about trends I never got into and thought, there wasn’t going to be anymore. But of course, I did think of more as I shopped, looked at outfits, time passing by etc. Just a note, because I didn’t follow a trend, doesn’t mean I dislike it or dislike anyone who wears them.

Creepers – I actually find them creepy, no matter how they try to make it look feminine or cute. It’s something about it I don’t find appealing, even in wedge form.

Jeffrey Campbell Lita – Those early blogging days, these can be seen everywhere, where ever you look, it’s in your face. I have a few Jeffrey Campbell shoes myself but have never seemed to jump on the bandwagon for these. Student life did make it hard for me at the time. Thinking about it, I wouldn’t purchase a pair now.

Tartan – I think it’s the choice of colours that are used and not the criss cross design that made me stay away. It’s also one of those things that you know won’t suit you even if you don’t try it on.

Birkenstocks – Dad sandals as I like to call them. That’s it.

Caviar Manicure – I’m more scared of the beads coming off whilst I eat, with a possibility of choking. It does look pretty depending on the colour but it’s also a choking hazard at the same time.

Flower Crown – I must admit, I do own one but that was only for a collaborative post. It was from Primark, cheap and it didn’t break the bank. I haven’t worn it out in public as it doesn’t really suit my own style. It’s just gathering dust somewhere.

There will definitely be more of this series when I think of more.

Are there any trends you didn’t follow?

    I don't follow Birkenstocks either, never liked them.

  2. Birkenstocks are just ick! I don't understand that trend. I also never followed the Hipster trend. I just didn't like it.

  3. I have never thought about any trends that I don't follow, but I could probably say I don't follow any trends. I tend to wear whatever I find pretty and comfortable x

    This was a good read. Never consciously realized i'd stayed away from quite a few trends too especially the Caviar Manicure. I loved the flower crown but being so self-conscious didn't help. Will need to give this topic more thought…

  5. Sonya C. says:

    I'm glad someone agrees with me on the caviar manicures, I just don't get it. I also never go for the Kylie Jenner/brown nude lipstick trend. I don't find it flattering. Great post! XD

    have to admit brikenstocks doesn't look nice despite how they try to reinvent it


  7. Arian Yupangco says:

    I never got into the caviar manicure trend too. I tried it once but ugh, it was too much maintenance to keep looking pristine!

  8. Esha says:

    I've never tried any of these either.

    Pixee xx

  13. Laura Ferry says:

    I did the flower crown trend (well, flowers on a bun ring) and I have some birkenstocks which are the most uncomfortable shoes I own but that's it. Creepers are just wrong for me! xxx

    Not every trends need to be follow. Being yourself is what matter most.

  15. Fred Hawson says:

    Funny post with your reasons not to follow certain trends. As a man, I prefer to go for classic designs as well when it comes to shoes and clothes.

  16. Anubhooti Khanna says:

    i am not much into trends… but ya Birkenstocks is a big NO for me!

  17. Isabella Tang says:

    Got to say I quite like the flower crown trend, but only ones with the small flowers :p and really like tartan scarves :p x

  26. Leeshastarr says:

    I've followed a few of these trends. (flower crown, tartan & creepers). The main trend that I'd never follow is co-ords. When they come in the store I work in I cringe.

    OMG I totally agree with you about Creepers and Birkenstocks. Don't like them at all and never understood how they became trendy.

  37. Tasha F says:

    I've never tried any of the styles about and don't think I would want to. All except for the flower head band. LOL I really want to rock a hippie inspired outfit and that would be perfect for it .
