When Fashion sends You Running for Cover: August Beauty Month

Fashion has experienced its difficulties in the minds of designers and trendsetters. A vortex of politics and historic events, entrepreneurs and fond musings of the past has created the fashion industry we see today.

Despite good intentions, fashion blunders are occurring in the past and present. Even though a fad existed in popularity ten years prior, does not mean it works today. 

Below are five fashion disasters that have occurred in the last forty years.

Spice Girls *ahem*…fashion.


The Spice Girls and others from the 90’s introduced ripped jeans and the grunge look. Although this decade inspired some creative attire, leading to the revival of 80’s fashion, some of these trends should die. You cannot expect to be taken seriously in a style that is labeled “grunge”.

The Scrunchie.


A hideous concoction of the 80’s that makes any individual appears to be five years old. Colorless (black, blonde or brown) hair ties and bobby pins are the way to go. Regardless of the scrunchie making a comeback, it needs to be retired once and for all

The Mullet.


A haircut that resembles a porcupine should not be a fashion choice. As with the animal, the individual must step away from this blunder before they suffer the consequences of embarrassment.

Who wears Short Shorts?


The high-waisted shorts of the 80’s are returning in controversial forms. Bearing a resemblance to daisy dukes, this clothing item is a disgusting view of your derriere to many unsuspecting individuals.

The Questionable Attire.


The controversial dress worn by Rihanna at the CFDA Fashion Awards mirrors the risqué mindset of the 21st centuryShe and others have made claims to expressing creativity and wanting to mirror a past fashion. However, this plea is crossing the line from what is appropriate to inappropriate.
