If you care for fashion you are bound to look back at some of your fashion choices and wonder what you were thinking. Just remember, you are not alone! Sometimes things you once absolutely loved, make it onto the cringe list. Here are a few fashion trends that probably should be retired for good.
Thinking of making your classic jeans a little extra with the addition of some glittering rhinestones? Put down the bedazzler and step away from the pants. But why you ask? Firstly, bling can actually make jeans quite uncomfortable, and the more bling, the worse it is. But worse, these suckers are next to impossible to wash.

There is also evidence that suggests that old style Crocs are actually bad for your feet because there’s little in the way of support for your arches and toes.

Shoulder pads smack of protective gear and the time has come to shrug them off for good.
