i see sooo many of them in the Lower East Side.

oh and i forgot the girls and boys (they are never over 25yrs old) wearing lumberjack/tartan shirts around their hips.
yes! i see that styling repeated so many times... usually the girls pair it with a commercially distressed band t-shirt, denim short shorts, and tights... same with guys but with ripped skinny jeans.

Why, oh why won't crop tops just die out already? Even in October! I'm just so bored seeing it on everyone. And the worst part is that most of the girls/women who wear them are just sheep who would've laughed at the trend a few years ago.

Wedge sneakers should die a slow death.

- Something very prominent in Paris is the "Kanye West look" I mean the all package : leather pants, black or white sweater with the t-shirt worn under showing and red sneakers. Not to forget the (fake) gold chain and the cap. This look is ok but seeing all guys adopting the trend without giving it some personality is just depressing.

- I also agree about the 90's please just stop ! Dyed denim and hair, rainbow-coloured plastic jewelry and crop tops though I have nothing against crop tops except if its part of a 90's inspired look.

- Other than that Paris is very pleasant for eyes, many different styles out there.

The "man bun", or more specifically an undercut in a bun.

^I actually like the man bun.
But I agree with the 90's trend. Horrible back in the day, still horrible.
I hate the return of the Stan Smiths. It's just a phase. Same thing happened with the new balance. Everywhere for a few months and then gone.

^ ..

I would say the same but there's a guy at work (he's beautiful) that's kind of feminine and pulls this one off. I can't say I'm sick of this trend yet, I love it on guys.

- people being pedantic about head to toe black, you can tell when someone's a natural, and you can tell when someone's a contrived fashion victim crafting carefully an all black image every morning and looking so calculated it's almost boring to even wonder what's going on in his/her head. Fake all-black looks, hate them!

My wardrobe is 95% black so I hope I don't cone off as a "fake all black" wearer I truly just have an affinity for black and not just in clothes.

OVER seeing Stan Smiths.

This is more of a runway trend, but I am tired of indigo in menswear.

90s style was generally awful then, and is even worse now.

^ people say i dress very 90s or that i dress like a yoga teacher when im at work, wearing head to toe black (the merrells/ danskos don't help).

yes the man bun trend does seem more prevalent (at least in Seattle) but i''m ok with it. the girlier, more feminine the man the better!

Also for me, I must say the combat boots and army trench combo. It's been in for 2 years now, and almost every girl at my college wears it. I much prefer riding boots, as they give more freedom to wear whatever leggings I want, and they suit me well.

^Look at the bright side; as long as everyone is wearing combat boots, you won't look like a fashion victim in your (flattering) riding boots

In my experience, only men with curly hair wears man buns, and they usually use a lot of grease to slick it back at the same time Can't say I have seen a man in real life pull it off yet.

Let us enjoy some time without hair in our face, life with curls is hard enough.
Sidenote: I don't use any grease and don't wear my hair like that outside of the house unless I'm on vacationer extremely lazy.
