11. Is there any fashion trend you’ve refused to participate in and why?

Synthetic, overly processed, overly bright and polished anything.
Gel nails and full on make upb and contouring - i'm too lazy, and it doesn't really go with my image. The more I do, the worse I look.

The concept of fashion trends is something I ignore. I buy what I like without much knowledge of whether or not it's trendy and wear it anyways. The transience of trends and their collective sameness isn't interesting to me.

Fur, baby, fur! So many equally warm options available. Why participate in an industry built on killing and skinning one of God's creatures?!

I understand the current dad shoe trend. I like a good chunky shoe on the right person. However, some of these shoes are just straight up whack. The giant white FILAs are unforgivable and make me cringe.

The idea of the trend. If I don't like it, I don't participate. If the trend doesn't like it but I do, I wear it. Trends are a way to make us buy more, fuck that.

Because I really don't like participating and I don't feel comfortable

I never participated in the Nike slide shoe and high sock combo. Was not my style.

Yes. There are probably many. I don’t really follow trends, I just wear what I want to wear. One I can say I didn’t participate is the mini skirt, bodycon, tight clothing trend because I hate form fitting clothing

Chunky sneakers. They seem like clown shoes and I trip easily.

How much time do we have?
Boyfriend jeans
Sherpa fleece pullovers
Ultra high-waisted jeans
Clear heels
Overlined, nude-colored lips
Aggressive facial makeup contouring

Trends in general. I don't want to look like everyone else, mainly because I think I'd feel like I stood out within that group. Like, if everyone is going for a particular look then there will be competition over who nails it the best, whereas if you avoid trends altogether you'll never be in competition with anyone.

I am not a dedicated follower of Fashion. I hate sarouel pants.

any fashion trend. fashion as a trend. it's such a waste culture to run after trends. I buy new things when I change and want to express myself differently not when the season changes and I'm wanted to buy more more more.

Biker shorts, I don't think they're flattering.

I would never wear real fur.

7” heels
bad feet

Deliberately ripped jeans. I kind of like how some of them look, but I think of my dad and how he made sure that our clothes were whole, and I just can't do it. The other piece of that is, of course, the nastiness of industrial distressing, but it's only the most flagrant with hole-y jeans.

No not really, im open towards new trends.

I don't personally support loungewear. I like to feel good about myself and to do so I need a belt and a bra.

Yes - I am not buying into the latest trainer brand - I know they will not last. I stick to leather shoes that don't go out of fashion or wear out within a couple of months.

I feel like there has been so many. I have a bitter taste in my mouth for fashion trends because I feel like they are chosen by someone and that person is a human being just like me, why do they decide what is beautiful and "in" and what isn't? However, there have been fashion trends that I have worn and simply because I found beauty in them. I think the most recent fashion trend I have refused to follow are graphic tees that just say the dumbest things on them. Like cute little sayings that have absolutely no depth to them. Also the sexy underwear trend, Im not on that one either.

Yes. A good number of fashion trends. Crop tops are not really my style.

Statement sleeves and cold shoulders. They're ridiculous and ostentatious and unpractical - all things I'm not.

I don’t think I’ve ever made a conscious decision not to do something. If I want to do it I will. If I don’t, then I won’t.

yes. some trends are to crazy looks and expansive

The 80s trend. Because I've already been through it once, with regret.

The all white outfits. I’ll probably conform eventually but it’s too bold I think. But, i’ve already bought white pants (gap girlfriend) so it’s maybe only a matter of time. I don’t think so though

I don't like maxi dresses/ skirts because they make my legs look even shorter than they are.

All of them really, because I'm just not interested. Aside from the very popular trend of not being naked.

Skinny jeans. It doesn't look good on me. One of my legs is slightly longer than the other and as a result I have a bit of a silly walk. It shows much more when I wear skinny jeans. And have you ever seen Katharine Hepburn or Indiana Jones in skinny jeans?

crop tops- my body isn't for them. I have tummy fat and an uneven skin tone- these aren't flattering.

I won't put fishnets under my high-waisted torn jeans because I think that's too last-year.
