Dead fashion trends resurface, not thanks to favorite celebrities

Let’s be honest with ourselves: celebrities and social media have a huge influence on our lives. They popularize food recipes, workout routines and, in this case, our wardrobe. As you browse Tik Tok, you might be surprised to see some trends coming back into vogue, and we can thank celebrities for that. However, I believe that not everything a celebrity wears deserves to be back in fashion or displayed for fans to recreate and match their look.

Over the past year, we’ve seen celebrities such as Bella Hadid and Hailey Beiber wear cargo pants, an early 2000s staple. However, before they were all over Pinterest and Instagram, you wouldn’t know. You wouldn’t have caught me or anyone else fashion-obsessed wearing such an atrocious piece of clothing, and if you did, you might just associate them with Kim Possible (or maybe it was just me).

Why let a celebrity decide what you wear when you can establish a style that speaks to you? Make your own style choices and find clothes that make you feel unique and cool. ”

According to an article by vogueUntil recently, pants have been associated with goofy tourist clothing or the polarizing aesthetic of the 2000s.”

Although cargo pants are now considered fashionable and comfortable, teenagers wouldn’t wear them without the celebrity influence, considering no one wore them a year ago. Cargo pants went out of fashion in the early 2000s when celebrities stopped wearing them. However, the second they start wearing them again, they are suddenly in style.

With the meaning of “cool clothes” changing at a glance, it can be difficult, especially for teenagers and young adults, to find clothes they really like, and clothes that truly represent you and your true style, not just Hailey Beiber’s. fashion taste.

But clothes aren’t the only thing celebrities put on our fingertips. What’s an outfit without sneakers? Specifically, the brand New balance. What used to be a standard pair of dad-sneakers, like the New Balance 550, could be purchased at FootLocker for $80; now you have to find them on sites like StockX and buy them for triple the priceeven though they are exactly the same shoes. There’s still nothing special about them today compared to six months ago, other than the fact that they’re trending on Pinterest. Many shoe websites including Goat are retailing these shoes for $350 as celebrities put them in high demand. They describe the shoes as “a discreet silhouette. But how can such expensive sneakers for a basic pair of tennis shoes be considered understated?

Although everyone has their own style preferences, many people may agree that a celebrity or social network persuaded them to buy something, even if they didn’t like the item. Why let a celebrity decide what you wear when you can establish a style that speaks to you? Make your own style choices and find clothes that make you feel unique and cool.
