[Fashion] PeopleStylewatch Trends

Yesterday I got an email from People Stylewatch asking "Obsessed or Hot Mess?" in reference to eight celebrity trends, and I thought it would be fun to play along here on the bloggy blog.

First one: Fingerless Gloves

Frankly, I didn't even know these were a "thing" any more. But apparently they are. Madonna brought them out the first time 20+ years ago and she's trying to bring them back again.


I think these are a hot mess. I didn't love them in the 80s and I still don't love them now. If we're going to talk gloves, I love the elbow length, elegant ones. Not ones missing half their fabric. 88% of StyleWatch readers agreed. What do you think?

Trend Two: Heart Shaped Sunglasses

Again, these are a thing - for adults? Yes, according to Drew Barrymore.


These I can't see on anyone over the age of 12. I had a red pair of these as a child. I do not like them for adults. While I'm sure the aim in "young and funky" I don't quite think it works. However, only 46% agreed. I was surprised by that one!

Trend Three: Shorteralls

Say what the what?!? Wtf are "shorteralls"??? Well, let me enlighten you. They are overalls that are shorts!!! I've honestly never gotten into the return of overalls so these guys get a big fat EEWW from me.

These were voted a Hot Mess with 79% of the vote. Your opinion?

Trend Four: Head To Toe Animal Print

This one I was on the fence about. The picture showed in the article was this one:

I'm sorry, Gwen, but that is entirely too much animal print. However, I would vote this trend a potential "Obsessed" if it was a pattern mix of animal prints (in the right outfit) or if it were a long animal print maxi. But if we're talking about the above picture? I once again need to say HOT MESS. And 81% agreed.

Trend Five: Shredded Denim

Wow!!! One I finally can say obsessed to!!! I love shredded denim. I don't know what it is, but cutoffs and torn/ripped jeans have always been sexy to me.

Love this one! What do you think? I was shocked to see 82% marked this a Hot Mess!!!

Trend Six: Body Chains

I've just started to see these this past summer. Honestly, I think that done right, these can be pretty darn hot. However, I don't think it's a trend that just anyone (myself included) can pull off, and I don't think it's an "average girl"'s trend.


What do you think? 22% said Obsessed.

Trend Seven: Tea Length Gowns

This one isn't really fair; I personally hate tea length gowns, just because of how they fit on my body. However, I think a lot of ladies can pull off this length dress quite beautifully. The example StyleWatch used was Natalie Portman's wedding dress. I really don't like this length for a wedding gown if the gown is full and poofy, like Ms Portman's.


What's your opinion? This one was close. 43% obsessed.

Trend Eight: Fringed Boots

Ok, you guys, I hate these. I think they're fugly. I think they fall right in the line of Uggs, which I also sevely dislike. But that's all personal preference.


What do you think? I expected these to have a pretty high % that liked it, but it was also close - 52% love and 48% don't.

So - will you be trying any of these trends any time soon? Do you already wear some of these? What do you think of them?


  1. oh man the only one i like is shredded denim - other than that - WHAT?!!??!!?

  2. i've been wanting heart sunnies for years now!
    Xo Megan

  3. Haha, I love your directness. I agree about most of them:)



I absolutely love hearing from readers! Thanks for stopping by!
