Every once in a while, fashionistas come up with something so provocative that you can’t help but be a little amused. Here’s our curated list of 17 such outrageous fashion trends that your innocent eyes should have ideally never had to see.

1. Eye-tattoo

Speaking of eyes, how can we forget the eye ball tattoos that became quite the rage last year? To be honest, some of these eyeball tattoos in black, purple and deep blue shades are kinda “mesmerizing” but then again, you shouldn’t have had to read eyeball and tattoos in the same sentence.

2. Floral beards

Floral beards made quite a splash in the summer of 2014 and saw a great number of hipsters sharing their various floral beard styles on social media with the hashtag #flowerbeard. They are kinda cool if done right, otherwise just plain funny.

3. Coloured arm-pit hair

This one’s got a feminist angle to it. The reasoning being why must women keep a hairless body. So keep the arm-pit hair and make it ‘special’ by coloring it.

4. Facekini

A Chinese innovation, the facekini protects the wearer’s face from the sun. So anytime you’re short on sunscreen, your facekini will come to your rescue. And just for this reason, your facekini will make sure you keep yourself well-stocked.

5. Condom dress

Well, to their credit, some of these dresses were used in fashion shows to create AIDS awareness. PC: Chris Michael WordPress

Made for the social cause of spreading AIDS awareness, these condom dresses were (thankfully) rarely worn off the fashion runaways.

6. Eye-jewelry

Who said you need Vitamin A for sparkling eyes? This eye-jewelry is a short cut to eyes that shine (quite literally).

7. Duck feet nails

Duck feet nails, as the name suggests, are nails manicured in duck feet shape and are probably one of the ugliest manicures ever to have gained mass popularity.

8. Beansprout fashion


Coming from China, this hair trend bemused many the world over. These plastic headpins create the illusion of a bean sprouting out of your head and can (sometimes) look cute in a funny way.

9. Plastic food accessories

Another masterstroke from China, these hair accessories are giving serious competition to the beansprouts. I prefer the beansprouts to these, what about you?

10. Skintight leggings with “decorative private parts”

From hiding dandruff to missed hair coloring appointments, this trend will turn your bad hair days to sparkly ones only if you’re edgy enough to try it on.

12. Drop-crotch pants

You may wonder why and how the drop-crotch pants even became popular. Be honest. Doesn’t the wearer looks like they’re wearing a diaper full of crap?

13. Hairy T-shirts

I can’t understand the logic behind this trend. A hairy chest is supposed to be sexy on a man and perhaps some rebellious fashionistas though the women could make it look better? o_O

14. Gun-hoof shoes

Is it a gun? Is it a goat? Keep wondering as we are.

15. Fish tie

Imagine having a snake-like fish hanging down your throat. Creepy, right?

16. Thigh-gap jewelry

Show off your shapely thighs that do not meet with thigh-gap jewelry. This fashion trend created quite a furore earlier this year.  While the runaway models showed off this jewelry, many others accused this trend of fat-shaming and causing body hate.

17. Fundies

I’m a true blue gypsy at heart. YES is my buzzword. Planning a travel adventure? You can always count me in. Treat me to good food, and you can be my friend forever. Fashion has been my guilty pleasure ever since I was a little girl who loved poring over the sparkling jewels and opulent gowns of Disney princesses. Keeping fit and showing love to my body is what keeps me feeling good. I LOVE those looooong discussions and stimulating experiences concerning spirituality, religion, and things beyond – the explorer in me is forever fascinated by these. A neuroscientist-turned-writer-turned-online marketer, my little 5-year-old career has seen me wearing multiple hats. In my world, there are no rules chiefly because I ain’t got no motivation to make or break ‘em.
