Thank God that’s over

As the year — and technically an entire decade depending on which math you use — draws to a close, it’s only natural to reflect on the past. On the fashion front, 2010 presented highs and lows: You loved fashion’s return to wearable clothes, but the invasion of jeggings? Not so much.

As the year — and technically an entire decade depending on which math you use — draws to a close, it’s only natural to reflect on the past. On the fashion front, 2010 presented highs and lows: You loved fashion’s return to wearable clothes, but the invasion of jeggings? Not so much.

We polled readers to find out which trends you’d like to bury for good in the coming New Year.

Ridiculously tall platforms heels
They may look great on the runway, in a music video or on a street-style blog, but they’re difficult to walk in. Maybe that’s why uber tall shoes are overwhelmingly the least popular trend among Metro readers — except the Italian ones.

82% of our readers in Italy love sky-high heels

Trucker hats
Ages ago, Pharrell Williams made them cool. Then, Ashton Kutcher made them popular. Now, they’re the accessory of choice for cheeseballs everywhere — still. We blame Von Dutch.

Crocs
Let’s face it. The rubber, rainbow-colored clogs only really make sense on very small children. The Dutch, surprisingly, hate them the most.

69% of our Dutch readers would banish Crocs from the earth


Ballet slipper flats
A timeless classic or over-exposed bore? If you ask our Hungarian readers, the comfy shoes are the latter.

46% of our Hungarian readers think ballet slipper flats are totally last year

Harem pants
Fashionistas associate dhoti trousers with Givenchy couture. But most people just think of Hammer Time. Americans and Canadians have the least tolerance for drop-crotch pants.

82% and 80% of our Canadian and U.S. readers, respectively, deplore harem pants

Skinny jeans for men
Why? Because they require abnormally thin legs. Who wants to look at a man’s twig legs in too-tight pants?

Velour track suits
It’s amazing that these are still hanging around, considering that it’s been nearly 10 years since Jennifer Lopez first made them popular. Our Greek readers don’t mind them so much, though.

43% of our Canadian readers think velour tracksuits are “ov-ah”
