Fashion has several different faces. There’s the beginner-friendly timeless side where basics and conventional staples reign supreme, and then all way on the other end of the spectrum is where things get experimental. The beauty of it is that there’s always room to oscilitate depending on your present tastes, and right now it seems the fashon crowd can’t get enough of the weird and slightly wacky.
Whimsical trends always have a way of entering the fashion ecosystem, and this year is no different. Everything from over the top platforms and micro mini skirts to blinged out denim are suddenly back in the spotlight, ushering in a new wave of nostalgic fashion that’s impossible to escape. As with most “ugly” trends, none of these will strike you as pretty off the bat, but that’s part of the fun. Each is a statement piece in itself, so you can lean on them once your wardrobe starts feeling stale. Keep scrolling for a report of the divisive trends heating up this summer.
