If there’s anything that Miu Miu’s latest runway collections have taught us, it’s that there’s no shortage of “ugly” fashion trends this season. (We’re all still thinking about those librarian-inspired looks here at Who What Wear.) A reminder to all: “ugly” trends are not in fact, ugly, but describe designs that are out of the ordinary yet define what’s cool for those in the know. They may be questionable to the general public and haters will continue hating, but we will continue wearing them because fashion is about rejecting societal norms of what’s deemed flattering anyway, right?
“Ugly” trends are cyclical. Some of them last a short time span, but some end up having more staying power than you’d think. Despite these unique trends facing the “ugly” adjective, they’re being worn both ironically and unironically by the fashion set. Take a look at the list below and decide what piques your interest. Keep scrolling to add a little dose of uniqueness to your wardrobe this season.
