You know how there are certain things in life that everyone is just supposed to like? A certain movie, book, fashion trend, etc.? And while most well-loved-by-the-masses things aren’t so bad, there’s always that weird movie that wins tons of awards and while all your friends discuss how “brilliant” it is, you’re thinking about how much you hated it.
It’s the same with fashion. Something’s been “in” for years and yet, you think it’s ridiculous. We’ve all got that one thing (or, maybe a few things) it seems everyone loves but that we just do not like.
I’m about to make some enemies, I’m sure. But, here goes: I don’t like wedges.
Scratch that. I hate wedges.
I think they’re clunky and awful and distract from a perfectly good outfit. However, I get that a lot, and I mean A LOT of people love them (and you may be one of them!) And honestly, I have no issues if you love them!
And while I’ve never tried to persuade clients or friends from buying them, I’m more likely to wear a pair of cowboy boots than wear a pair of wedges, and that’s really saying something.
I (kind of) get why people like them. You get the height with out the discomfort of sky-high heels. They have some cute designs and well, they’re trendy, especially in the spring and summer months. Just not my thing. But I still like you if they’re yours. :)
So now that I’ve offended all the wedge-loving (and cowboy boot-loving) among you with what you won’t find in my closet, tell me, what trendy, “loved by all” clothing item do you HATE? Share, please!
