11 Fashion Trends Women Thought Were Cool But Now Make Them Cringe

Have Clothes, Will Travel

Fashion trends come and go, and sometimes we follow them without realizing how ridiculous they may look in the future.  From butterfly hair clips to low-rise jeans with whale tail thongs, get ready to cringe and laugh at the fashion disasters these women once fell into.

Butterfly Hair Clips

Admitting to falling for the butterfly hair clip trend, the second user couldn’t resist the allure of achieving her “glittery butterfly goals,” even with a pixie haircut. The trend, which was all the rage in the late 90s and early 2000s, involved wearing small, colorful butterfly clips in one’s hair.

The Rachel Cut Conundrum

We all remember the Rachel haircut, made famous by Jennifer Aniston’s character on Friends. One hair enthusiast tried to emulate the look, but it was a disaster.

The Whale Tail Trauma

Another fashionista’s most regrettable fashion trend was undoubtedly the “whale tail” trend, which involved wearing low-rise jeans with a visible thong. Despite the trend’s cringe-worthy nature, the user embraced it fully.

The Dreaded Dress and Jeans Combo

A particular user fell victim to the fashion trend of layering dresses with jeans, which emerged in the early 2000s. 

Raccoon Eyeliner

We’ve all had our middle school fashion disasters, but one fashionista takes the cake. Raccoon eyeliner was all the rage back then, especially in the MySpace scene look. Even her teachers couldn’t help but comment on it. Talk about cringe-worthy!
