In 2018, we have been blessed (or cursed, depending on how you see it) with a myriad of new and exciting and disturbing fashion and beauty trends. Every year, we seem to add to the piles of fads that should have never been and that of trends that are gone from our world too soon.
This year, we have one that perhaps straddles the line between positive and negative. Twitter is very much in disagreement about this new fashion fad, and I am curious as to where you stand because I feel like a person's view of this new piece of clothing says a lot about who they are deep down inside.
That is right. I am talking about fried chicken pants. Believe me, had I known at the start of the year that I would be writing about pants that look like fried chicken, I would have gone and jumped in a lake because the notion is so ridiculous. And yet, here I am, and here you are. The world works in mysterious (and delicious) ways.
Before we get to the fried chicken pants, let us take a stroll down memory lane.Fashion, the whole concept of it, had quite a year. Here are some of the most insane and silly trends we thought up this year!
Tiny sunglassesTiny sunglasses were just one of many '90s trends that came back into fashion this year, and honestly, I'm here for it. The less functional, the more I like them.
Plastic bagApparently, it became a thing this year to carry around this plastic shopping bag as a purse. Some sort of anti-fashion statement. Bag ladies everywhere were thrilled.

They are mesmerizing.
