The definitive ranking of 2017’s most unnecessary fashion, so far

It’s hard to keep up with questionable fashion, but 2017 is making it pretty easy because there’s just so much out there so far.

Since the year began, we’ve seen an abundance of downright bad ideas. There have been plenty of eyebrow and makeup trends, bizarre fabric choices, and unexpected collaborations that have blown us away with how unnecessary they are.

If you want to make sure you’re not committing any fashion faux pas yourself, we’ve ranked 2017’s most unnecessary fashion so far from “Mostly okay” to “Please, make it stop.” You’ve been warned.

14. Male Rompers aka the RompHim

Honestly, the RompHim isn’t that bad. We don’t mind that guys are getting in on the romper trend, but have they ever had to pee really badly while wearing one? They don’t even have to pull their normal pants down all the way to pee if they don’t want to.

Try taking this thing off in a panic and then we’ll talk about how worth it it is. And get ready to feel real naked in that stall because we guess men wearing rompers can’t use urinals. Or can they? We don’t know we don’t fully understand men’s room etiquette.

13. Yellow blush

This doesn’t make us mad, but why not just use pink blush? No need to look like a Cheeto. Not so much unnecessary as it is weird.

12 & 11. Barbed wire and feathered eyebrows

We don’t know about you, but we’re over eyebrow trends. Remember when eyebrows were just…eyebrows? No, neither do we. You don’t need to split your brows down the middle to make them look like feathers because they’re beautiful just the way they are. Stop touching them, please.

Again, we’re over this stuff, but this looks like the eyebrows you have after just waking up from a great night’s sleep and have no idea where you are. No work required, just wake up and go.

10. All Ikea fashion

Ugh, this trend escalated too quickly. It initially began with Balenciaga trying to sell a grossly expensive copycat version of Ikea’s FRAKTA bag, and quickly became the kind of trend only the internet could spread.

Ikea then became “fashion” when people started to make FRAKTA hats, thongs, and even Yeezy sneakers. This is not cute. This is not necessary. Ikea is not fashion. Stop trying to make Ikea fashion happen.

9. Glitter booty

Glitter booty looks more annoying than anything else. This is a cute look for, let’s say, a music festival or attracting A LOT of attention at the beach, but imagine trying to wash off all that glitter? Do you know where glitter goes to die? Literally everywhere. You’ll find glitter in your pants for weeks, but if you’re down for it, give it a try.

8. Candy Crush/Moschino swimsuit

If you are a Candy Crush super fan (we’re sure you’re out there somewhere), then this swimsuit is for you. But, Candy Crush, you are not fashion. Stick to what you know best distracting people for hours on end while eating up their phone batteries.

7. Expensive destroyed Maison Margiela sneakers

$1,425 for a pair of already destroyed sneakers? We’ll take a scissor to our cheap dirty pair from three years ago, thanks.

6. Nordstrom mud jeans

Again, just put on a worn-in pair of jeans and roll around in some dirt. Saved you $425. You’re welcome.

5. Thigh makeup

This trend initially started as a way to practice makeup looks without having to use your face. But why not just use your face? Or a friend’s face? This pains us because it is a colossal waste of precious, expensive product and our wallets are burning just looking at this. Make it stop.

4. Jean dress

Dress or jeans? Pick one. Don’t drape two pairs of jeans over your shoulders and call it fashion. Who are you trying to fool?

3. Clear Yeezy boots

These are downright disgusting. Take five steps in these clear, plastic bad boys and watch a bucket of sweat form around your feet. Can you imagine the smell when you take them off? We’re gagging just thinking about it.

2. Topshop clear plastic jeans

Wear jeans or don’t wear jeans. Do not wear clear jeans. What exactly is the point here? Think of the chaffing. Think of the sweating. Oh and they’re $70. 70 DOLLARS FOR PLASTIC. Next!

1. Butt crack jeans

These are neither necessary nor fashion. End of story. No one wants to see your butt crack. In what situation would someone need these jeans? Don’t answer that. They’re just bad. Wear basic jeans. Bye.

Fashion is cancelled for 2017. Everyone go home.
