Not a Fan: Not Every Trend is for Everyone

Thursday, April 7, 2011

Trends come and go, some stay for a good decade, not a fan? don't worry, some only make it for 6 months before people are screaming Sianara! Adios! The big thing to remember is they are trends...not style...which means not every trend is for everyone. There are many things that grace the glossy features of InStyle that I personally would never wear, or could never wear given my size, shape, coloring...etc.

There is one fashion trend that I have been cringing at for almost a decade now...and its still the vain of my existence...OK maybe not that dramatic but I hate UGG boots! UGGs are a shapeless, unimaginative shoe design that has Smoke&Mirrored their way around real shoe designer labels for far too long. And too grab your Bedazzler gun, add some glitter and stick an extra zero on the price tag is not creating a better model...its just sad that that is what you deem as quality shoe work.

Many use the excuse that they are so comfortable. This may be extremely true...but so are bedroom slippers and pajamas and those are also things that should not leave your house. Just because something is comfortable doesn't give you reign to gallivant around all day in it, there are other clothing options that serve the same purpose while still remaining clothes. Yes I'm talking to you, people who think pajamas on a plane are cool...its a few hours, you can do it at work and school, you will survive snacking and watching a movie in one chair in a real outfit.

To the credit of the UGG company, I will make this note: They have done a worthy job diversifying outside of their original product. Beyond the Bedazzler they have chic sandals that I wouldn't mind strutting down Central Park West in, and they have expanded their fine sheepskin into some fabulous home and clothing options!
