what are some trends you remember hating/wishing would die a swift death from decades past? Can be any decade/era prior to 2010. Think clothes, hairstyle, slang, etc. How do you feel now that those trends are long behind you? Do you miss it on the low? Or is it good riddance?

feel free to post pics/gifs/videos etc

The youngins gonna have to sit this one out Geek








Try to make this one lively yall, im bored Cry

frankly -- high top fades. no thank you.

i saw some kids with: a high top, gumby and and a step. maybe high schoolers.

i was like Confused ...bruh. 

while i loved the 80s (and trust me, i loved the 80s) the fashion can stay there. i swear i may punch someone if stirrup pants start becoming a thing to do again.  Pinch


Eta: NO SIR!!

I'm really hating high-waisted pants.  Like, with a passion.  If you ain't got no ass, it just makes you look like an ironing board.

Yessss, the scrunch and the pineappleLOLClapLOL
I remember when I figured out how to do the scrunch myself and hooked up my own hair and my college roommates hair. You couldnt tell us we werent on point.

I hate the overly sprayed french roll though it was my signature hairstyle for a while right around 1991. I also hate that they started spraying blue hairspray and silver glittery hairspray as an accent on the french rolls.

I used to wear the dark blue lipstick that is in style now. Im kinda glad that I dont have any photos wearing it b/c im sure that it was awful. I also used to love the opaque silver and gold lipsticks by Jordana back then and I hope that they never make a comeback lol

Yes, old men would smoke pipes and would 'stuff snuff'. I saw old women do it too and when I was a tiny kid, I just knew that I would try snuff one day (I was an avid baseball player and used to stuff that shredded bubble gum Major-League-Gum or something like that in my jaw like it was a wad of snuffEmbarrassed)

I remember those thick azz scrunchie socks that we use to wear like 2 pair and mix up the pattern on each leg. I see that "BOBO" aka Keds shoes are coming back in style. They come in colors and now have prints. I had all colors back in the 90's

I hated those rock hard french roles and those blade like flip ponytails.  U ain't supposed to wear a french roll for 3 weeks.  sh*t be crusty.  Kitchen just fucced up with...antyways.   And not everybody could rock super thick dookie braids. tryna put 50lbs of hair in a top pony... industrial rubberband like 20 inches from your scalp stretched to the limit cause it was so much hair.   Dookie braids look better down.


I love most of 90's fashion.  *shrugs*  from grunge to velvet babydolls with black tights and steel toe Doc Martins to cross colors.  it was a wonderful time.

I love 90's tv,but I can barely watch this tv.

R&b was better.
Coogi can stay in the 90's.

D.A.R.E.! I found my shirt the other day.I won a DARE essay contest in the 5th grade lol.

The clueless, Tia Tamara, tanner family,blossom, type clothing can stay in the 90's.

I hate flavored sparkling drinks, but I loved the original mystic flavored supposed to b sparkling water.

OMG, that molded French roll can stay right where it is. All that Pro-styl gel and Pump It Up spray just smh.  Flammable azz hair lol.

In fact, all of those molded hairstyles including the scrunch, those hard finger waves, the basketweave, and those waterfalls. I couldn't believe my eyes when a co-worker came in with a fresh scrunch with some hair left down in the back. 

Crimped hair.

White eyeliner across the lid.

"baby hairs" made of gel and a toothbrush

Overstuffed shoulder pads.

Perfumes such as Exclamation and Designer Imposters lol.

Frosty silver and gold lipsticks, especially when paired with black lip/eye liner. I shudder.

-long, curved acrylic nails
-Gold Initial rings
-Two tone jeans

i live in Fl so maybe so...no never had a fire. We usually spray the hair with water and the slap on the black prostyle gel to the weave hair and roll with snap on rollers, nuke it in the microwave 10 mins and check on it to feel if the hair was dry ever 3 to 4 mins. My first ponytail i actually went to the salon to get it done and the stylist used a microwave too.

This reminds me of the stupid Nascar jackets and shirts with blinged out cartoon characters like spongebob on them. I HATED both especially them jackets because it could be 100 degrees outside and people would be rocking them just to show them off
