Dec 072018

It all began as a casual comment in Who What Wear’s secret Facebook group asking for everyone’s least favorite trend of 2018. It quickly grew into a large feedback forum on the trends that collectively earned an eye roll from fashion followers this year. Scanning the comments, there were a lot of common themes, which inspired one member Rochelle to ask, “Looks like we are all in sync, so why is this junk showing up as cool?” Well, it turns out junk is in the eye of the beholder, but there were some trends that stood out as earning the most exasperation. Accordingly, we cataloged the mentions, which largely fell into two categories, trends with just a smattering of dissenters and trends that earned an avalanche of naysayers. We organized them below, ranked from least hated to most. Scroll down to the bottom to see the #1 trend that drew the most ire and shop alternatives to the highly debatable styles.
