Fashion is a funny old thing, and we know this better than most. It might seem like new trends crop up from nowhere every season, but really it’s a cyclical process—it’s rare (if not impossible) to find a look comes that hasn’t already appeared in a previous decade.
But as we recently found out from an e-commerce style insider, each time a trend resurfaces, there’s also a separate "mini cycle" underway. Apparently, it takes roughly a year for a trend to hit the mainstream, which explains why sometimes the first time we see an "out there" trend we recoil, but after a few of months, we start to find ourselves warming up to it.
After a recent discussion at Who What Wear HQ, we realized that each of us had a particular trend that we were initially dubious about but over time have come around to. They’re the sort of "so bad they’re good" pieces that tend to go against our usual style, but somehow feel undeniably appealing. From hiking sandals to ‘90s bucket hats, scroll down to see which looks we’re on the fence about still. The jury is out, so we’ll let you decide whether they’re fab or simply fall flat.
