What Trends Are You Ready To Retire?

12/04/2006 at 06:00 AM ET

As we head towards the New Year, we’re pondering not only our resolutions, but what we are content to leave behind in 2006. And as always, there are a few trends that have just worn out their welcome. Blinged-out cellphones and sidekicks, like Paris Hilton’s bedazzled number, are just one of the fads on our scrap heap for next year. Tell us: What trends are you tired of? What don’t you want to see in 2007?

The one trend that is finally being noticed is that curves are in! Now if the fashion designers can get this through their heads, we curvier women may be able to find better form fitting fashions! I can’t tell you how many times I have shopped for pair of jeans and my size is always the 1st to go yet there are about 10 pairs of sizes 00-2!!

I disagree with Amanda. The trend that needs to go is VANITY SIZING. I hate going into a store and find that a brand’s XS is too big on me, leaving disappointed and empty-handed. Or walk into another store and find that all the size 0s or XS are all gone. Designers need to stop inflating sizes to cater to an overweight America.

I see many posts about assorted styles of pants. My vote is wear the pants that suit your body. Don’t squash yourself into something trendy to prove that you can and don’t worry about what someone else is wearing. Personally, I prefer heels to flats, because the further my bum is from the ground, the better it looks. Red lipstick at a party is nice, but probably not necessary at the grocery store. Huge sunglasses look silly, like you’ve been playing dress-up in your Mom’s things. Finally, here in Canada, Uggs come in real handy.

In no particuar order:

1. jeans that are 200 dollars
2. shapless little girls style clothes
3. singers trying to act
4. clay aiken
5. the baby as accessory
6. tanning spray
7. pregnant women showing their tummies in shirts that barely cover them, so not sexy
8. shopping in stilettos
9. tracksuits
10. t shirts that double as billboards

I LOVE HOW ALL YOU PEOPLE ARE DISSING THE EXACT SAME TRENDS. I SAY WE DITCH NOT THINKING FOR YOURSELF AND I SAY WE KEEP ALL THE TRENDS THAT THESE OBVIOUSLY FASHIONABLY UNSTABLE PEOPLE ARE TALKING ABOUT. I SAY U FIND YOUR OWN STYLE STICK WITH IT AND DONT DISS ANYBODY ELSE’S STYLE JUST BECAUSE YOU LOOK HIDEOUS IN IT. IM SORRY IT MAKES ME LOOK CUTER BUT YOU GUYS NEED LIVES AND A NEW FASHION SENSE.

Trends that need to disappear:

1. UGG boots. People who wear them with shorts and mini skirts during hot LA summers look seriously stupid.
2. The ginormous sunglasses. They make people look like flies!
3. Skinny jeans–because they do NOT look good on everyone.
4. Low rise jeans. Sometimes they show off way more than anyone needs to see (think thong lines, etc.).
5. Anorexic skinniness. I love women with voluptuous soft curves, like Beyonce and Scarlett Johansson. People who are WAY too skinny look like unhealthy skeletons. I’m not a big fan of Nicole Richie’s, but her thinness scares me. She looks like she has a medical problem.
6. Trashy, overly revealing clothes! I hope Britney Spears is reading this. Showing off tons of skin does NOT automatically mean you’re sexy.
