What was the dumbest fashion craze you got caught up in?
I was a child of the 80's. For me it was the big mall hair and the "cauliflower" looking bangs we used to have. I think that by far is the dumbest look I ever engaged in. When I say big hair - I mean BIG hair lol. What makes you cringe when you look at old pictures?
80s shoulder pads and leggings with leg warmers; awful, awful, awful. None of these things was feminine or flattering, though the leg warmers were very comfortable in winter. Made women in lower 20s look like teenagers and older women just look stupid (mutton dressed as lamb). The hair was crazy; first and last time I had a perm - ugh! So I agree with you!
Sadly it wasn't that long ago that I got caught up in short jackets. You know the kind that only come to just below the boobs. I thought "oh wow, with a pair of skinny jeans that looks great on her". I then proceeded to buy several. After wearing them I started wondering how in the world was I going to keep the bottom half of my torso warm. It was fashionable so for a short while I suffered with having a cold belly. I have since given this up because for me when it's cold, I'd like more than my breasts warm.
