Love it or hate it? Items that were once considered a “shame” of the fashion industry have revolted and become an interesting trend with the style of “Ugly Chic”
Besides ugg boots, what ugly item is coming back and taking over the trend?
It is difficult to see the line between beauty and ugliness in the fashion world because they are too personal categories. Every era has a dark corner where “out of place” designs hide in the community that worships difference and waits for a breakthrough in another time period. Today, the following 6 “anti-fashion” items have escaped from the “blacklist” of the fashion world and flew straight to the top of the new trend chart.
Don’t try to pronounce the word ‘ugg’, you will hear the sound of despair, choking, a hiccup escaping from the throat but now the sound of a spectacular victory. UGG’s curvaceous, curvaceous boots defy all glitter trends, dismissing any attempt to shape girls’ bodies and becoming an eloquent (and obnoxious) statement of the time. Fashion also needs a break and sinks into a soft, warm feeling right under the feet.
The “Shoes of Sin” was created in the 60s and has always been the source of the typical controversies about style and country since then. They began to be embraced by young Hollywood stars in the 90s and lasted their heyday into the early 21st century. 20 years on, the trend has turned once again and UGG boots have confirmed their time. Breaking the internet, constantly appearing in IT-Girl outfits from Asia to Europe, from Bella Hadid to Jennie and Lisa… UGG imprinted its footprints in every corner.
But how can the stepchildren of the fashion village wade upstream and win the hearts of the followers? Perhaps the first reason comes from Normcore or whatever comfort aesthetic the younger generation is actively promoting. Founded in 1774 by Johann Birkenstock, this casual footwear brand has made big names like Valentino or Proenza Schouler seething with their blood and efforts to produce competing designs.
But Birkenstock found a clever way to play from day one. If ordinary sandals or slippers can cause some defects in the legs such as flat feet, affecting the joints of the knees, hips, and spine, the special feature of the designs from Birkenstock is that the inner padding is made. protruding according to the correct foot structure to support the joints. Every IT-Girl in America owns at least one pair of Birkenstocks.
Appearing in the 1960s, the tracksuit is the common name of dynamic suit designs for sports athletes. Thanks to the spread of the Kardashian sisters, Hailey Bieber, etc., the tracksuit movement doesn’t just stop at the gym, and the stadium, but really hit the streets. If in the 2000s, Britney Spears and Paris Hilton strongly promoted Juicy Couture with velvet fabric, now the tracksuit material is popular from parachute fabric, felt to knitted, … and at the same time become a representative outfit. for winter.
Also, a design from the Y2K renaissance, shield glasses, or goggles with oversized lenses is driving fans crazy. From Balenciaga, Dolce & Gabbana to Blumarine, fashion houses have brought ski goggles back to the runway with impressive futuristic inspiration. This accessory is Kim Kardashian’s style identity item. If you’re on the front line of her best friend, the gradient eye color will capture the Y2K vibe you’re looking to pursue.
With a special design, recently, the balaclava hat has emerged as a “strange phenomenon” in the fashion world. It is like an underground rebellion and changes the stereotypes about the usual dress code when bringing the hood to cover the face as an accessory to attract the eyes of the crowd.
The name “balaclava” derives from the Battle of Balaclava during the Crimean War in 1854, in which soldiers wore hats to keep warm in harsh conditions. The design is easily reminiscent of the clothes of bank robbers or Muslim elements. As aesthetic thinking gradually became liberal and favored difference, people began to look for accessories such as balaclavas to create accents for the “interface” of everyday life.
Socks – a simple accessory to keep warm and protect the skin from blistering when the weather turns cold, have been transformed into a special highlight of personal fashion. Fall and Winter of 2022 mark the strong return of tube socks across the catwalks.
From Miu Miu and Chanel to Dior, designers use stockings to create accents for preppy, Y2K, or ballet core costumes, etc. The enthusiastic promotion of cult idols like Lisa and Rosé ( BLACKPINK), members of NewJeans, etc., make this an indispensable “spice” of the autumn-winter mix.
