Everyone has made a fashion statement that they wish they had not. Everybody has a photo floating around out there which is less than flattering and even maybe a little bit embarrassing. The best that anyone can hope for is that the pictures do not wind up on the net. Anything less than worldwide exposure is going to be fine.
Most of these fashion faux pas come from making bad decisions and falling into the trap that trends and fads pull people into. However when you are young these traps are much easier to fall into because when everyone else is doing something, like leg warmers or parachute pants or wearing their pants down low and super baggy, then it really is tough not to do the same thing. Everybody wants to fit in and sometimes simply wearing the same cloths or similar fashions is enough to make somebody feel as though they are part of a larger group.
Sometimes the fashion statement is carried out in order to differentiate that person from the group. You’ll often times see young people dress more and more bizarrely in order to be farther and farther from what’s regarded as the norm. This is where the trends begin because no matter how weird something looks to me or anybody else, it makes a certain sense to other people.
Sometimes something cool comes out of the experiment, however most times the trends simply fade away into obscurity and never show their heads again. The only time they see the light of day is when you happen to be cleaning out the closet and you pull that old box of photos out and start looking at those early years, back in high school. These are the times when the most embarrassing things manifest. These are the years when you experiment and every year you can have a new thing, a new style and it was always evolving and changing.
Luckily there is typically photographic evidence and you can go back and laugh at the cloths you and everyone else wore and the silly haircuts that seemed like such a big deal at the time. Sometimes you are going to see things which are timeless and you wish maybe you had played it a little more conservative on picture day. A polo shirt and a nice pair of khakis would have looked just fine today as they would have twenty years ago.
