Discussing the sheep dog bangs started me thinking. There are a lot of trends that once they hit mainstream, and by main stream I mean those that didn’t wear the trend within the first couple of years of it being out – but the tail end years when it’s on its way out, they start resembling a fashion train wreck. Let’s cover these individually and give them the attention they deserve.
These are the now infamous Nike running short. I have loved these for many years – FOR WORKING OUT! They hit the fashion scene a few years ago in the college world – hideously mis matched with an old button up and old loafers – I didn’t get it then and I don’t get it now. It has since moved to the adult world and often I see them on people that probably don’t realize they are FOR WORKING OUT.
The trend is done, it’s over, you look ridiculous, sell them to your running friends and quit wearing them out unless you need to make your weekly Wal-Mart run…Not to lunch with the girls. Oh – and it’s 90 degrees – you are wearing wool lined boots with running shorts. Those boots are bad enough with jeans but with running shorts? Not even if you were an Olsen.
