8 Trends That Will Die Before They Even Happen

Trends are for humans what worms are for dogs: They live forever in your heart until you drink arsenic to get rid of them. Some trends are wonderful, bringing us great pleasure and endless memes and some really great slideshows, while others make us look back and wonder where it all went wrong—“Did I really look that bad? Because I couldn’t have. Because it looked so cool.” And then you just get sullen and eat three or four, but definitely four Hot Pockets. The most perverse class of trends is filled with ideas that feel hollow even when they’re only just beginning to brew. Ahead are some of those very trends, which totally died before they even set sail into the big salty ocean of #trendswear.

    The ads here are distracting and annoying. If you’re going to invest the time to write and post, why not get server space and put a wordpress or similar site ?
