Trends I’ve Never Followed #3

MISSING OUT?

Flared/Bootcut jeans/trousers – I have read that they are great at making the legs look longer but for me, the 70s trend isn’t really my thing. I will end up constantly tripping whilst wearing them. I’d rather stay away from the embarrassment and bruises too.

Dr Martens boots – They’re too chunky for my liking. I didn’t like them when they were the trend back in the 90s. I have heard that they are very comfortable however not my style.

Fringing/Tassels – Not my thing. It seems like its out of place and makes the item look unfinished. Plus knowing myself, the tassels will get caught on something, tugged, ripped off, everything.

MAC Fluidline – I remember this being the cult classic years ago. It was “the” product of the year, or years. I saw reviews and tutorials left and right. Those were the days where I had thought I’d never spend that much on an eyeliner. Even to this very day, I still wouldn’t purchase this due to the reviews I’ve read. Even if it has high praise, it doesn’t seem to be that good with oily lids.

CC/DD Creams – After the BB cream saga, I gave up in trying products like these and decided to pass on the CC and DD series. Don’t really have high hopes and will be sticking with my foundation instead.

Are there any trends you didn’t follow?

    I never understood the hype of Dr Marts too!

  2. Helen Gandy - Beautiful Things says:

    Nope never did Dr.Martens either, hated them!

  3. Laura Ferry says:

    I've never followed the Doc Martins trend either, I think they look pretty ugly and clumpy! xxxx

  4. Rachel Simpson says:

    I'm with you on most of these. I'd like to have a pair of Dr.Martens – Don't think they would suit me. I haven't worn bootcut jeans since I was about 8 and they dragged on the floor! Don't think I could pull them off now! xo

  5. Amanda Love says:

    My daughter was all into Dr. Martens so of course I had to buy them for her. Now she has them and won't even wear them. I don't follow trends.

  6. Mia Foo says:

    I dislike bb creams too, but cc creams made it into my makeup drawer. they're a lot better than bb, really.

  7. CollectiveBeauty says:

    I've never been a follower of the bold lip trend. I just cannot pull off a bright red or purple pout!

  8. Fernando Lachica says:

    I love my high-cut Dr Martens boots and fitted jeans, but for my loose baggy trousers, I dare you, ver cool!

  9. Tiffany Yong W.T. says:

    What's the BB cream saga? Share that link here? I don't really follow the trends you've mentioned either, but for the cream, I'm using CC cream, not because I'm following, just because that brand doesn't make me break out!

  10. Jason P. says:

    I can definitely relate especially with the Doc Martens. Waaay too played out for my taste.

  11. beautyqueenuk says:

    I never had Dr Martins either though I do sometimes think of giving them a go x

  12. Anne V says:

    I actually have never followed any trends when it comes to fashion, ever. Didn't want to be sporting anything that majority of the world would be wearing, I'd always be the odd one in the crowd haha.

    I do love boots, but didn't join the Dr. Martens boots bandwagon, I don't like it haha.

  13. Elizabeth O. says:

    I used to like Dr. Martens before, but now they are too chunky for me. I never would have known about BB creams if not for my reviews.

  14. Russ R. says:

    I had several pairs of Dr. Martens before. My favorite pair was the one that looked like MaryJanes and I wore them to school. They looked alright though 🙂
    I'm with you on the CC and DD creams. There's a brand, I just can't remember which one, selling a ZZ cream. Marketing makes them sound different but really, at the end of the day, they're all pretty much the same foundation … kind of reminds me of a song by Death Cab For Cutie: Different Names for the Same Thing.

  15. Raquel says:

    I have to agree about the Dr. Martens, which seems to be making a comeback. It’s simply too bulky for my taste. Other people rock it well though.

  16. I love bootcut jeans, they flatter my odd hourglass shape much better than skinny jeans. Which is hard at the moment as skinny jeans seem to be everywhere!

  17. Louise Banta says:

    I wanted to buy Dr. Martens too just to go with the trend but when I'm almost at the counter, I always change my mind. To me, I find it fashionable but I know for myself I would have a hard time mixing it with my clothes.

  18. Kelly McKenny says:

    I used to love My Dr Martens! I haven't had a pair in years, but I do keep flirting with the idea of getting some more!

  19. Fred Hawson says:

    I do not like tassels on anything. I express my disapproval when my daughter wants to buy something with tassels. Yeah, and the 70s thing, not my thing too.

    Lovely post check out my new post at http://shizasblog.blogspot.com/

  21. Ling Tan says:

    Am with you on the boot cut flare jeans – I'm just toooooo short to ever be able to pull that off and WILL NOT be caught in them… not willingly that is! 🙂

  22. papaleng says:

    I used to have Dr. Martens jeans and at that time it felt good wearing them, but not this time.. ha,ha,ha..

  23. Laura - Alagoz says:

    I like a good CC cream and its the only thing I have tried from your list.

  24. Pooja Kawatra says:

    Luckily i have not followed any of these but hearing a lot about CC cream these days.

  25. Loudthinkin says:

    I actually have a weakness for boot cut jeans…I like to own a pair even when they are not in fashion.

  26. Esha says:

    I hate tassels somehow and I never tried any DD cream either.

  27. Hanniz Envato says:

    Ah.. boot cut was a thing of the 90s so I had jeans with that cut and they complimented my figure. The rest not so much

  28. Karen of MrsLookingGood says:

    I'm a Doc Marten's fan! I've had them since the 90s (I'm so dating myself) and can't unlove them.

    It really is what works for you. There are stuff I'm not a fan of but I respect other people's choices.

  29. Danessa Foo says:

    I never like Dr Martens too. A lot of "gangsters-wannabe" in my neighbourhood liked wearing them so I steered far away from the pair.

  30. Franc says:

    Dr. Marens is a bit to heavy. Fashion trends does make their rounds of being in so I won't be surprise if it becomes a fad again.

  31. Raymond Vasquez says:

    I am not really into fashion. The most that I follow on trends though are on hairstyles back when I was still in highschool. But that's it. For outfits, I choose to set the trend! Lol!

  32. Jess | Just Jesss says:

    I do really like CC creams, for me they're way better than BB creams as they give more of the coverage I want from a base product!
    Doc Martens, however, are something I've never even considered – I love how they look on other people, but I have big feet to start with and I'd worry they'd make them look even bigger haha!!

    I had a good laugh reading your list. I'm not familiar with the CC and DD creams but, the others were great!

    It's totally up to you, whether to follow a trend or not.. Well, not everyone have to follow..
