    You can pry my bootcut jeans and flares out of my cold, dead hands! I’m so over skinny jeans. 😀

    I keep wondering leotards over tights will come back to the gym. Probably any day now…🤣

    I never stopped wearing bootcut jeans.  I don’t feel like they are obviously trendy like skinny jeans or the over the top flares.  They aren’t horribly off from just standard straight-cut, just slightly flared at the bottom.

    I don’t want full on Britney low-cut jeans back, but I am happy to finally have some lower cut jeans available again.  My usual brand has only had high-waisted jeans for the last few years and I have a short torso which means I’m practically tucking my jeans into my bra.  

    I do agree on the skunk-like chunky “highlights”.  It’s such a horrible look.  Another trend that’s been back for a couple of years and I hope dies out pretty soon is brown lipstick a la Jennifer Aniston circle early seasons of Friends.  However, satin and glossy lips are finally making a comeback this year after several years of matte and that makes me very happy.  I have a few matte lipsticks I like, but for the most part it just makes my lips feel horribly dry.

    Big hair with a ton of hair spray. Shoulder pads. 

    And I hate trendy lingo. Hearing the divas who are famous only because their parents have money or fame or both talk about ‘building their brand’ makes me want to dry heave.

    I might be in the minority here, but I love bootcut and flared jeans, I haven’t worn them in years because they went out of fashion, but I much prefer them to skinny jeans. They’re a lot more flattering imo. 

    A trend I don’t want to see coming back is sports wear as every day wear, I’m talking like 90’s shell suits. I loved them as a kid, but I have no idea why as they look atrocious.

    moissamight :  “Baby boot cut” is definitely still popular. At least where I live (San Diego) it is. I don’t see flare too often, though. I think people often confuse flare with boot cut.

    MissClaudiaCaswell :  I can tolerate french tips on fingers as long as it’s on natural nails and not over the top acrylics.   It’s not my favorite though.

    However, this reminded me that I saw someone wear sandals last week on the one nice day we had and they had french tips on toes.  I’m sorry, but french tips on toes creep me out.  Just no.

    Big square shoulderpads. Awful. No one looked good in them. I didn’t really mind the low-rise jeans, but I hate the mom-type jeans. Super glossy dripping off your lips lip gloss a la Carrie Fisher in Star Wars. Very 70s.

    MissClaudiaCaswell :  Lol. I just had a French mani last week, nails and toes. I’ll always love it. Natural nails, no acrylics or whatever. But Carmela Soprano might very well be appropriate lol. James Gandolfini lived right near me before he got divorced. I would see him walking with his son on his shoulders and a red bandana on his head. Requiscat in pace James.

    annabananabee :  I concur with your post as a fellow (slight) boot cut wearer with a short torso.

    I don’t think boot cut jeans were ever a trend. They’ve been around for a hundred years and have periods of slightly-more and slightly-less popularity, but I’ve never seen them suddenly everywhere, which is what I think of when I hear “trend”. I wouldn’t call them a classic either though, more of a staple. Always there, some people wear them, some people don’t, and neither one is remarkable.

    And a french manicure is basically just mimicing or enhancing the look of clean healthy nails. How can that be in or out? That one I definitely consider a classic. It’s been around literally forever and if you dont’ do anything at all to your nails (and they’re clean & healthy) by default you have a low-key french manicure.

    Like 95% of the population, I am not built for skinny jeans. I look like Gru from Despicable Me. Boot cut or bust! My husband told me he was going to burn the one pair of skinny jeans I own 😂 

    Side note: I totally had one of those weird expandable bubble shirts. So cool back in 1998!
