I like to think that I am not boring when it comes to what I wear. I know I am not the most adventurous- but I mix certain trends in with my standard attire. I consider my 'look' to be edgy preppy or slightly bohemian (summer time) and most times, my look is just straight up whatever is comfortable-- mostly jeans (designer, I am obsessed), cute sweaters, t-shirts and boots. But, like I said I like to try new things. And so I have skinny jeans, bright colored jeans, animal print, neon items....
BUT- there are some trends or styles that I just can't wrap my mind around. And I don't think they are cute at all. On anyone. Well, pretty much anyone. Some of my fashion forward friends can pull anything off (talkin' about you, Liz) and look hot.

Socks with heels. Um...ok. I get that some ladies want to rock open toe shoes in the colder months but...to me, this looks so NASTY. Cold toes, then wear fleece lined tights. Socks in heels just looks baggy and messy and like something a drunk grandma would wear. I say it is a HUGE no no for anyone not walking the runway.
Onesies. Okay....so the longer version is a little bit better than it's cousin the shorts romper but not by much. It is a ONESIE. I just don't get it. At all. Someone explain to me who this is cute on in real life?
Floral print pants. I've been seeing these bad boys everywhere. Urban, ASOS, even my beloved j crew has fallen to this. Know what this look reminds me of? The 80's. Saved by the Bell. When my mom used to dress me in these (except they had stirrups) and an off the shoulder sweater with a side pony. Floral pants are a huge no no in my book and ain't nothing going to convince me otherwise.

Now I know that oxfords are big and tons of girls wear them. So, don't hate me if you own them and rock them, but I just think they are totally ugly. Esp with skinny jeans. They belong on little girls in school uniforms. Not adults. Sorry loves.

High waisted denim is hard enough for me to wrap my mind around. But brightly colored, flared AND high waisted? I can't even. I just can't.
again with the high waisted. Do I even need to write about why I don't get this look or can your eyes just do my talking.
Okay, tell let me know. Am I totally off base with my fashion criticisms?
