Curious Fashion Trends

Jul 12, 2021Roshanak

Fashion is one of the best forms of art out there. But some people have created the weirdest trends out there, and it’s hard to imagine anyone actually wearing these clothes or shoes. Would you wear a pair of fish shoes? How about a purse made out of empty pill bottles? You could also be rocking a purse that cannot carry anything. Let’s find out more!

INFLATABLE OUTFIT

Redditor AnnoyingCoofer posted this image to the “itscalledfashion” subreddit, where people share images of the weirdest fashion choices and outfits from runways. The user wrote, “How do you go pee caw caw.” It’s hard to imagine that anyone in their right mind would actually use this ever.

FUTURISTIC FASHION

Fashions designers are supposed to think ahead, and an important theme is "futuristic looks". Redditor Plethorian posted this image and added, “Space-age fashion by André Courrèges, the 1960s.” So, this is what people in the 60s thought the future would look like. These outfits don’t look practical at all.

A JACKET OR A SLEEPING BAG?

Redditor Wildestrose1988 posted this picture and wrote, “I like this brand a lot but I saw this and was just confused. Everyone in the comments is saying they want it... WHY???” Honestly, it’s hard to understand what’s going on with this jacket. It’s clearly just a fashion statement because it won’t cover you at all.

PERFECT FOR WINTER

Redditor GuiltyStrike1 posted this image and wrote, “Casual Friday.” Well, winter is the season where people don many layers. Some people also love oversized clothing, but the fact that some folks think this looks great is not encouraging. The “Aladdin pants” are the worst part.

OVERSIZED SUPER COAT WITH SHORTS

Some people love purchasing a larger jacket than normal because it’s super cozy. Whoever made this one was just exaggerating. Redditor adrianoouk posted this picture and wrote, “Winter is coming...” Also, if it’s that cold, why would you wear shorts?

HALF OF A CARDIGAN

Redditor frostadventure added this image on the subreddit and wrote, “Yeah I guess why not?” The worst part is that some people might even buy it instead of just ruining some old cardigan they have at home. The audacity of some brands is astounding. What do you think?

THE THONG SOCKS

Sometimes, you just want to wear socks, but it doesn’t look that great with your high heels. This is apparently the solution. Redditor GuiltyStrike1 posted this image and wrote, “Sock thongs are the new black.” This is just unnecessary. She could have used leg warmers instead.

DECORATED BEARDS

Instagramer infi_fashion posted this image and wrote, “Recently, we came across this weird fashion trend that a lot of people have been trying. Guess, what can that be? The #weirdfashiontrend for this week is Glittery Beards.” Nowadays, men are more open to all kinds of fashion statements, but this one might not be for everyone.

THE PILLOW GOWN

You might not have a fancy new outfit for that upcoming party, but luckily, you might have a few colorful throw pillows lying around at home. A now-deleted Redditor posted this image with the caption, “Pillow Dresses are apparently a thing.” Who would wear this in real life?

CUTE VERSUS PUNK

Redditor me_is_alive posted this image and wrote, “I unironically love both outfits. Left is perfect for when you can't decide on whether to be cute or punk.” Well, everyone goes through phases, but punk might be the most cringe-worthy in the future. It’s the kind of trend that you think is cool now, but after growing up, you will hate it.

THE PERFECT RAMEN BOOTS

Instagramer waronsanity dedicates their account to all kinds of weird things. From odd art pieces to questionable fashion choices, you can find it there. The user posted this image and added, “They got the nudez!!!!!” Of course, “nudez” in this case means “noodles”. Any that loves ramen would kill for these boots, right?

SEE-THROUGH STAMPED BAG

You might have heard that some schools are actually requiring that their students bring only see-through bags for safety. But this one also has a bunch of stamps. So that you can be mailed right away? It’s not ugly, but it’s confusing. Instagramer waronsanity posted the image and wrote, “USPS forever.”

FURRY COAT

Instagramer waronsanity posted this picture and wrote, “These LA girls baaaaad.” Anything in a neon color is just not that in style anymore. Maybe it worked during another era or for a special party. Hopefully, this elderly woman is just having a laugh, although she might be a “rude girl”. Who knows?

IT’S CALLED FASHION

This is another image posted by Instagramer waronsanity. The user wrote, “Groovy stompers, they’re like Dino stompers but one million times better.” This definitely could have worked a couple of decades ago, although the platforms are a little too high. Regardless, it’s still a rather odd trend.

IS THAT ONE SHOE?

Instagramer waronsanity posted this image and wrote, “Honk if you like boots by @zigzag.goods.” These shoes are actually sold by a brand called ZigZag Goods, which describes itself as “Contemporary clown wear for the everyday freak.” All their shoes are odd, but many people like them.

PERFECT RECYCLABLE HAT

Sustainable fashion is the rage right now with the popularity of being green and saving the planet. However, some people take things a little too far. Instagramer waronsanity posted this picture and wrote, “Back on my bucket hat.” Why would you make a hat out of an IKEA bag? You can use those bags instead of disposable plastic ones to be even greener.

COLORFUL IN JEANS

Instagramer crysha.methyd posted this picture and added, “Every popular girl in Disney.” This is definitely what it felt like every Disney Channel girl dressed, especially during the 2000s. While jeans will always be in style one way or another, this is just super odd. It’s like the 1970s inspired but wrong.

SHINY ROLLER SKATES

Instagramer infi_fashion posted this image and added, “New fashion trends come and go. So are these #weirdfashiontrends. Check this weird fashion trend.” It’s hard to say if anyone would actually try this one unless they want a broken ankle. Roller skate boots can look amazing, but high heels on wheels are not a good trend.

THE PERFECT TIP

Instagramer dupletfashions uploaded this picture and commented, “Thoughts, concerns, opinions please #shoes #oddfashion #shoes #weirdfashion #fashion #shoeselfie #weirdfashiontrends.” While you can all kinds of decorative things on your clothes or shoes, most of the time, everything should have a purpose. This is just unnecessary.

FURRY HIGH HEELS

Instagramer jillianwrightfacials posted this image and wrote, “Fuzzy shoes in the window if Celine. #Madisonave #weirdfashiontrends.” These are kinds of shoes that only a rich woman in a movie would wear while the cops tell her that her husband has “mysteriously died”. Other than that, they are so impractical.

GREAT CROP TOP FOR MEN

Redditor Falsebooles123 posted this image and wrote, “This crop top half mesh shirt.” While men have worn crop tops over the years, and it’s perfectly fine, this one might be a little too much. He might as well not have any clothes on. This trend is definitely not for everyone.

PERFECT SUIT TO IMPRESS WOMEN

Redditor snorlaxlover123 posted this retro image and wrote, “The only true way to get a lady’s attention.” This is another outfit that would have only worked in a different era. But it’s unclear if it actually attracted the ladies or if they just tolerated its existence.

WHEN YOU NEED THE HEIGHT

Redditor wourder_Leone posted this image and wrote, “Came across these €216 shoes on the website of a legit clothing shop.” This is another example of platform shoes, but it a modern style. It’s hard to imagine anyone actually using this right now, but if it’s on a website, it must be trendy.

THE PERFECT DRAGON JACKET

Redditor snorlaxlover123 posted this picture of a curious jacket and wrote, “When you can’t decide what to cosplay, so you cosplay everything at once.” It’s like a futuristic, rainbow-colored, dragon-inspired jacket. Maybe, it would look great on a child, but it’s not something you use every day.

WHEN YOU ONLY LIKE BANDANAS

Not everyone loves bandanas, but they can certainly be handy sometimes. However, this man is such a huge lover of them that he decided to dress entirely in it. His whole outfit has the same pattern. A now-deleted Redditor posted this image and wrote, “When just a bandana isn’t enough.”

SPORTY AND OFFICE READY

Redditor Nuhnu posted this picture and wrote, “When you have an important meeting at 6 but have volleyball practice at 7.” While it might have seemed like a fashion-forward statement, it’s hard to say if anyone would actually dress like that. Individually, each clothing piece is fine. But it’s a disaster put together. It must be a trend if it’s on the display, though.

KNITTED OUTFIT

Redditor snorlaxlover123 added this image to the subreddit and wrote, “When your grandma goes a little overboard on the knitting.” Obviously, many people love a cozy knitted sweater, but there’s a limit. This wouldn’t even work as a pajama because it’s so impractical. However, everyone is free to choose their style.

IS THAT WOODY AND BUZZ?

Redditor mi-16evil added this image and wrote, “I thought Forky had the most cursed merch of any Toy Story character. I was so so wrong.” Well, these shoes were definitely made for a huge of the ‘Toy Story’ franchise. As you can see, one pair features Woody and the other has Buzz Lightyear. Who would buy them?

YOU CAN STORE EVERYTHING HERE

Redditor AsocialKat added this image and wrote, “Why do I want this Jacquemus bag?” This is apparently actually being sold somewhere, although it looks like a prank. They are also worth more than $600. It’s one of those trends that only a few people will ever understand.

THE YUMMIEST EARRINGS

Redditor grape-jerky posted this image and wrote, “Muffins for earrings.” While some people adore funky-looking earrings, this pair actually looks like delicious muffins. But they cannot be that comfortable to use. It’s the kind of thing that you would only see in magazines.

THE PERFECT CHRISTMAS OUTFIT

Instagramer mrs.rhuemskotzmane posted this image and said, “CHAMPAGNE THE SALON ELF. Like I wasn’t going to turn this necklace into a belt?!?! When u can’t find JOY, CREATE JOY!” Well, she is happy with her Christmas light belts, but hopefully, this trend won’t catch on beyond the holidays.

DISTRESSED JACKETS

Instagramer shanx_rog posted this image with a bunch of hashtags on their account. It shows a typical punk-rock jacket with a bunch of add-ons. While it might seem pretty cool to some people, it honestly just looks pretty messy. This trend might still work at some concerts, but it’s not for everyone either.

TINSEL HIGH HEELS

Instagramer madoriedarling posted this image and wrote, “Tinsel...not just for Christmas Trees.” It seems that people will add tinsel to everything, and this is just plain tacky. You might wear it once as a joke, but anything can become a trend these days. It’s just ugly.

JEANS WITH FRINGE

Instagramer fashion.raadar uploaded this image and wrote, “Yes or no? #weirdfashion.” Fringe is fantastic for that classic flapper look but this one, in particular, is pretty questionable. The material makes your jeans look like an old rug, honestly.

READY-TO-GO BOTTLE PURSE

It seems like people these days are making fashion accessories out of absolutely anything. Let’s just blame “5-minute crafts” for this. Instagramer layamarieartistry posted this image and wrote, “Pill bottle bag.” It’s literally supposed to be a bag made with empty pill bottles. Unless you actually need to carry your medication, it’s just useless and not cute at all.

MORE RECYCLABLE OPTIONS

In terms of sustainable fashion, this is just awful. Everyone is trying to go green and avoid waste in other ways. You can make shoes out of different materials, but hopefully, this trend won’t catch on. Instagramer waronsanity posted it and wrote, “McSlides by @putrisamboda.” Luckily, the Instagramer just does it for fun, although others might steal their ideas.

FOR A SPECIAL PICNIC

Instagramer waronsanity posted this image and wrote, “Lunch is served and it sure as hell isn’t gluten-free #bye @nicolemclaughlin.” Well, you can definitely use these shorts when you have a picnic. In this case, Nicole McLaughlin makes clothes out of the craziest materials you can find. All of them are weird fashion trends!

WHEN YOU NEED SHOES AND A WEAPON TOO

Instagramer waronsanity posted this image and wrote, “Light it UP — high concept designs by @nethagoldberg.” You have probably seen all kinds of weird shoes already, but this pair is another example of a futuristic look. Netha Goldberg is an industrial designer, and this might be the next big trend.

THE PEARL VEST

Instagramer waronsanity posted this image and wrote, “Three frikken cheers for versatility @chakshyn!” This is the kind of trend that would only fit really skinny women or men. A pearl vest is just so impractical. It might sound like a great idea, but there’s really no reason for it, and won’t look good on most people.

MIRACLE WHIP EARRINGS

Instagramer crazyearringlady posted this image with several others and wrote, “Mini brands series 2!” Their entire account is dedicated to all kinds of weird earrings, and some of them are pretty awesome. However, some of them like these jars of mayonnaise are insane.

FISH SHOES

Instagramer kookithh posted these fish shoes and wrote, “I promised to share a picture of my fish slippers.” If you’re a really funny person, you might be able to wear these slippers to the beach, but they don’t look comfortable or versatile at all. These are supposed to be ugly, as that’s what makes them funny. But it’s odd.

THE SLOTH PURSE

Instagramer artisanemma posted this image and wrote, “Just under 2 hours until the next batch of Pastel Summer Daze Greg's go live on Etsy! Thanks so much for your yummy support baybaze!” Clearly, a lot of people love this sloth bag, but it’s still pretty odd-looking. That’s what makes it fun.

SEE-THROUGH JACKETS

Instagramer waronsanity posted this image and wrote, “Holly Fulton at London Fashion Week Spring 2013.” Any kind of see-through item can be questionable in the world of fashion. It might look alright, but it’s not practical at all. This jacket is not for comfort or for covering up. It’s just useless.

Image Credits: Instagram/waronsanity

SEE-THROUGH SCRUNCHIES WITH BABIES?

This is another see-through item, and it’s definitely not for everyone. Instagramer bespeonhandmade posted it and wrote, “BABY SCRUNCHIES... are now on my @depop. I wasn’t going to list these but I have loads of babies that are all alone with no one to love them. They’re currently just novelty to be worn on the wrist; however, I’m messing around with the PVC to make them wearable in hair!” Anyone wearing this has really odd taste.

Fashion designers always have to come up with an original idea, but some of these are just ridiculous. Let us know which one of these odd choices was the funniest. If you liked this article, share it with your friends that love clothes. See you next time!
