I actually love when someone does that, it makes me think of proper old school ladies. The kind who don't own a single pair of denim, have a maid and driver and all that. It is kinda glam.

I do that sometimes, mostly when I'm sitting, removed my coat, get cold and don't want to go through the hassle of putting the coat on again... I've been doing that for years now.

Barbaraaa: I don't think anyone will give you looks because you use your coat as a blanket/shrug to keep warm. What is ridiculus is when people leave their house all dolled-up and ready to have their picture taken, with the coat perched on their shoulders instead of on their back. Victoria Beckham springs to mind...

And why can't she use the handles on her hand(!)bags (read: not clutches)? Are they of such terrible quality they will snap?

I think that's absolutely fine! It does bother me, however, when people are outside in the cold and they refuse to button or zip up for the trend. Coats work best when closed! But I guess one can't be beautiful without pain!

short, ripped denim shorts. It's not summer. It's not the 80's. You just look stupid.
And denim jackets.
And basically anything people at tumblr tag as 'soft grunge' and think they are original.
And infinity tattoos, probably more than a half of the 17-year-old blogger population have one.

And so sick of the already mentioned messy top knot! It seems to be the most popular hairdo I see these days. And because it's winter and people have to wear hats and the knot becomes even messier and looks like a bird nest.

I don't know if you can really call this a trend, but it seems like all the men at my university don't shave under their chin and end up looking like they have some kind of a skin disease. Though when I complained about this to my brother he just said 'it's not that easy you know. And besides they probably think it makes them look more grown up'.

To Darling Myy's point, I especially dislike this look with tights underneath, as if one can't wait for the warm weather times to go out in their favorite jean shorts. Denim jean short shorts with tights underneath is a look I still have vicious dislike for. Tights and shorts look better when NOT wearing any jean shorts of any kind. The shorts will have to be you know... wool, linen, even leather shorts.

Always remember- you are NOT going to win any argument about any '80s or seriously grungy outfits if you're against such looks. Fight the fight all you want, but many of these looks so disliked are not going away any time soon, sadly.

Really long, pointy, painted finger nails {ala Rihanna, Fergie, et al} on ordinary, non-celebrity people. I just can't.

^As a person with very long, natural, fast growing nails, and a chronic Rita Hayworth obsession, I will choose to ignore last remark Angelica

I will agree that sharp claws are horrible.

I AM SICK OF FUR!

I don't mind a little bit of it, but the amount on the F/W 2013 runways is obscene. It's not just "full" fur coats either; there is trim on nearly everything. It is everywhere!

I usually don't have an issue with fur, but the runways are rife with it this year. It's insane. Fur gloves, fur coats, fur dresses, fur hotpants....it's a bit excessive.

Why is it aesthetically acceptable on celebs?
