Terrible trends

I really need to get a few things off my chest, so here it goes...

OK, so we loved the floral when it made a come back on the catwalk, especially Lisa Ho's interpretation...but enough is enough! I am seeing floral EVERYWHERE. They're just so '80's. I would like them to vanish into thin air. Leave the florals for lampshades, curtains, wallpaper and bed linen...please! Laura Ashley does it well. Leave it to the expert.




Another more recent trend, which I consider to be very cringe-worthy, is the tie-die denim look and anything that is top-to-toe denim. Why, you ask? It's already been a trend back in the '80's. A lot of the trends back then should NEVER make a come back. They're just far too embarrassing. 


I remember wanting to bleach my jeans back in the 80's. It was something we did out of boredom, to look cool. I find it difficult to understand the price tag attached to some of the recent takes of this trend by designers vs the cost of a bottle of bleach. This might come across as harsh, but I cannot see the point of ruining a decent pair of sophisticated and classic blue denim jeans. 


What are your thoughts on my take on terrible trends: The floral, tie-die denim, top-to-toe denim trend? I'd love to know! Please leave your comments below.

Yours in style,
