It’s time to pull out your scissors and cut this trend out of your wardrobe (and life) for good!
Do you feel nostalgic for high school when eyeing this slashed tops and tees trend? That’s not a good sign. What started as a DIY approach to adding–dare I say–pizzazz to tee shirts, the slashed tee trend slowly gained notoriety when spotted on the runway from high-end designers by the likes of McQueen and Alexander Wang. This style morphed to runway chic as more and more fashion connoisseurs started incorporating slashes into dress designs in 2009…I repeat…2009!
Luckily this style died out on the runways, but it hasn’t quite made it’s finale from mall couture. While shopping on Melrose last weekend, I was sad to spot this trend on women strutting their stuff down the streetwalk and it was still present in stores. They weren’t even in the sale section!
Not only has this DIY look transitioned to day-to-day casual wear, it’s also made it rounds as club wear, giving off outdated vibes before hitting the dancefloor.
Let’s give this look it’s final notice. Slashed tops, tees, and dresses are getting the PINK SLIP!
