The StyleBakery editors share their picks for the worst trends of 2009.
"My least favorite fashion trend was tie dyed, acid washed and slashed denim. Some trends are best left in the '80s! The worst beauty trend was green nail polish. Nails that look like they have a fungus are just not attractive."
- Jennifer Davidson, cofounder and style director
"I love hair accessories but did not like the headband around the forehead look, which thankfully seems to be on its way out. I also could do without the high waisted MC Hammer pants that the runways continue to try and push. We cannot forget about Snuggies - if you break down and buy one, please don't bring it out in public. And Kate Gosselin's hairstyle has to be the worst beauty trend of the year."
- Beth Herbst, cofounder and style director
"Harem pants! No one can locate your hips, butt, thighs, leg length... and that's not a good thing! And the worst part? I actually bought a pair and strutted around this summer feeling saucy - until I saw a photo of myself, promptly ending the madness."
- Stacy Cox, TV expert and style contributor
"The worst beauty trend? I'm torn between black lipstick and half-shaved hair. I don't understand the appeal. "
- Monique Hankins, beauty editor
"The worst fashion trend of 2009 was the jumpsuit. It looks good on a select few tall, skinny celebs, but for most this look is unflattering."
- Anna Rice, fashion and beauty editor
"The worst fashion trend for me is a tie between skintight destroyed jeans and leggings with loud patterns. These are two styles that are only 'in' for two weeks and then just look really silly."
- Stephany McKnight, celebrity style editor
"We didn't see this pick up in the mainstream market (thank goodness!) but if we had picked up on the no eyebrow trend as many publications reported about - we would have all been walking around looking like aliens!"
- Ishra Sharif, gossip editor
"Sharp shoulders didn't do it for me. I love the way a reinvented sleeve can completely transform an outfit on many women, but the angular cuts and generally overpronounced look don't do my petite frame any favors."
- Tanya Sharma, Daily Scoop and Tempting Treat editor
"My least favorite trend was continued dominance of skinny jeans, leggings, and the killer combo (as in fashion suicide if you're not 6' and 100 lbs) 'jeggings'. Blech."
- Andrea Thatcher, celebrity style editor
"Black will always be a best seller when it comes to fashion, and the cropped black polished nail and smokey black kohl rimmed eye sells chic like never before. But the black lipstick seen on runways (and some realways, aka the street) is just morbid. The '80s ruled like never before in '09, but the punk rock black lip is just an awful way to pucker up."
- Daisy Lewellyn, style contributor
