You would not have uploaded a million selfies online with the caption “mah life mah rules” if you had realized that low-rise denim and shimmery lip balm would not stay in style indefinitely. Sure, it’s embarrassing, and you’d do everything to be able to go into the past and tell your younger self it was useless, but that’s just how fashion works. Something that looks practical and trendy right now may cause you embarrassment in the future. And it’s not only in the realm of clothing. Learn them all by reading on!
Wearing Skinny Jeans
Not so long ago, women were expected to have a thigh gap as part of an unstated beauty standard. Because of this, most women and girls nowadays restrict their diets and exercise less to meet arbitrary ideals of beauty. Women have been deemed more desirable the more vast the space between their legs. Thankfully, those days are behind us, and natural body acceptance is rising.
Although eyebrow fashions come and go, pencil-thin brows were popular in the early 2000s. Then they evolved into painted eyebrows that mimicked nature, and today bushy eyebrows are back in style. So as much as you don’t have to go through the pain of having your eyebrows plucked, we can deal with it.
Having Tattoos Just For Laughs
Having a little humorous tattoo was a trend for a while. The mustache knuckle tattoo was the most common and popular design back then. Tattoos remain trendy, but these days they serve more as a means of self-expression.
Freckle-based victimization is not a new phenomenon in schoolyard bullying. But now more than ever, flaunting your freckles is a fashion statement in and of itself. Makeup artists apply brushes and specialized sprays to women’s faces. In addition, makeup products that intentionally give you freckles are now commercially available.
The Smokey Eye
In terms of makeup, the smoky eye was a staple in the 2010s celebrity makeup bag. Kim Kardashian is one of the people that helped start this fad. Regular women began wearing them anytime they were out, whether on a special occasion or just for a stroll in the park.
