I have to take issue with these. Especially the red lipstick because it can be a very classic look. The thing is - it's not what you wear but how you wear it. These things I've pulled out of your list can look tacky as all hell. They can also look reasonably nice if done well for the right occasion.

I absolutely hate red nail polish. Really, I do.

I also really hate white dress shoes. Doesn't matter if it's before or after Labor Day, I just don't like it.

I agree about the guys with processed (straight) hair, but I think low-cut and properly maintained afros are cute. (Like Kobe's!)

I would have to say that the worst trend (and it has nothing to do with fashion) is the whole Politically Correct deal. All it is, IMO, is sugar coating what you really want to say. You can't be REAL anymore, b/c reality is not PC. Not to mention, it's lightweight controlling. Don't say this, say that. Don't do this, do that. It keeps a lot of stuff hidden, and unknown. That breeds fear. I could go on and on, I'll just stop that now, lol.

But if you want to talk fashion, it definitely has to be this gold-tooth thing. One, okay, I might give you that. But a whole mouthful? You look ridiculous.

Question

Red nail polish and lipstick are classics, going back to the 1950s. Any fashion book or mag in those days showed that.
Brown and blue look fine together, particularly a chocolate, royal combination.
Now if you want to talk about bad trends, I'd have to say the daisy dukes, gold teeth, tube tops, and booty-crack pants.
When you reference "colored hair," do you mean crazy stuff (like blue) or normal things you get in the salon?

I agree...red nail polish and lipstick can only look trashy/gaudy if you LET it look that way. IMO, the ultimate starlet look is with red lipstick on and red nail polish.

I wore red lipstick to an important event, but I made sure it looked right on me--I blotted it a few times and added gloss on top...so instead of looking like it's "in your face," it looked more subtle. I got soo many compliments on my look.

ANYONE can wear red lipstick...you just gotta have the right application and color. I prefer dark/neutral reds to bright reds.

As for pedicured toes..I think the look is pretty, just as long as the toenails aren't long (yuck)!

About the colored hair, I don't see anything wrong with coloring the hair...doesn't matter if it's blue or just one of those colors that you get at a salon. I love coloring my hair (though they're not the bright colors such as blue, purple, green, etc.).

Steeltrap and Newbie, what I mean about colored hair, is wacky colors like purple and blue. But, natural hair coloring is fine.

About the manicured toe thing, I'm just a low maintainance person, cliping them is enough for me, maybe polishing them. But, that's just my opinion.

So that makes it one of the "the worst trends ever?" I can think of MUCH worse trends than having pretty toes. I mean, do you remember the 80s?

My vote for worst trend of all time goes to the 80's hairstyle that was short and pouffy on the top and feathered on the sides and just fell long and scraggly in the back. Happily, even when that was in style, I never went there

Cool

I've never thought of getting a pedicure as being "trendy", it's just upkeep.

As for the red polish/lipstick, on the right person, it's gorgeous. I also like the chocolate/royal combo too Steeltrap! Tube tops are pretty trendy, but again, on the right person, if done tastefully they can be very cute.

Thanks for clarifying, from a coppery brunette, bottle style.

What about:
The Jeri Curl (my mom says it's gonna "come back" as a dry curl...I hope not!)
Those canvas tennis shoes the girls wear now in wacky colors (the bottom is plastic)
Heeled-tennis shoes (like the WANTED ones)
Surgical Suits (the 80's was an ugly phase in fashion)
The Mullet (cut it Pleeeease!)
Jeans w/ holes in them (I won't front--I had some!!)
Hoop earring on men (loooooks feminine to me)
More gold in your mouth than on your wrist...
Blond hair on guys (you are not Sisqo ...)

More to come later!
