In 2023, people enthusiastically embraced a variety of questionable looks, leaving us bewildered. From fashion inspired by TV shows to celebrity-inspired skin, these are the trends we’re ready to bid farewell to in 2024.

Originating from the renowned French luxury fashion house Maison Margiela, this distinctive split-toed style takes inspiration from traditional Japanese work shoes dating back to the 15th century.BLEACHED EYEBROW- In 2023, TikTok exploded with over 124 million views on “bleached brow” tutorials, marking the trend’s triumphant journey into mass appeal.
MICRO BAGS- In 2023, no one wanted to be caught with a “ridiculously roomy” handbag. Yet, while the market is flooded with charmingly tiny bags boosting curb appeal, practicality seems to be the missing piece.JEAN MAXI SKIRTS- This year, the trend of floor-grazing denim maxi skirts took center stage. Yet, achieving the boho chic look is no easy feat. The coarse, heavy, and stiff nature of denim becomes a challenge when there’s an abundance of fabric, quickly overpowering the overall style.
GLAZED DOUGNUT SKIN-Not satisfied with just hydrated or dewy skin, Gen Z aspired to achieve a radiant glow akin to the icing on a doughnut, inspired by their idol, model-turned-beauty brand founder Hailey Bieber.
