Fashion trends are called trends for a reason. Most if not all of them run their course at some point. This is especially true for those fashion trends that quickly reached a peak and had their inevitable downfall. It’s hard to believe these trends existed at one point in time. Looking back, they’re all pretty cringe-worthy. It’s good that some of these fashion trends haven’t continued into modern times, even though some boomers continue to sport turtlenecks, baggy jeans, and thin eyebrows. Someone needs to tell them a thing or two about fashion, so we’re here to call out the dated fashion trends that should be left tucked in the far corners of your closet.
Back in the 1940s, turtlenecks were in. People wore them all day, every day, sporting them at weddings, birthdays, dinner parties, and just around their house. But nowadays, unless it’s the dead of winter and your neck is threatening to freeze without that extra layer, it’s best to avoid them altogether. They create an unattractive bobblehead look that makes most people look disproportionate. It’s hard to make your neck and torso look elongated when it’s covered by an outdated piece of fabric (via Reddit).
