I completely understand those fashionistas that want to stand out in a crowded room with their “unique” outfits that would eventually grace the pages of top fashion magazines and newspapers as the “Best Dressed of Fashion Week”.

But some trends seem to be a bit too unique and should stay in the minds of those that first came up with it…

Here are 9 of the craziest (and fugly) fashion trends of 2017:

1. See through jeans

Earlier this year; Topshop launched a perspex see through jeans which left many confused. Firstly, what do you wear underneath? (unless you want the whole world seeing your undies) and secondly THE SWEAT! You would basically be walking in a clammy mist of your own sweat…eeuw.

2. Two faced shoes

These two faced shoes featured on the runway in the Spring 2017 season show. But why?! I actually have no words.

3. Fluffy Nails

Again; featured on the Fall 2017 runway and no woman should ever make this nail trend a thing. I don’t care how “fashionable” you may think you look. It just looks as if you’ve patted your shedding dog with glue on your fingernails. It’s not cute.

4. Mop Sneaker

If you’re the type of person that wants to look “cool” and clean your floors at the same time (without too much hard labour) then these shoes are perfect for you!

5. Berry bags

These kind of work but not really…the texture seems a bit off. But it’s a great conversation starter; if anyone asks you where you got your purse from just tell them it’s from Bur”berry” LOL.

I think it’s safe to say that all these trends should just stay off the runway and out of your closet.
