This Trend is Going on Bed Rest

Pink Slip Fashion Pajama Inspired Pants

Pajama inspired pants became a hit on the runway in 2012 and trickled down to the masses in 2013.

With a loose, sometimes baggy silhouette, comfort was huge on making these pajama inspired pants stick. Toss in a geometric multicolor print and you have a fashion trend that’s ready to be dolled up with a tee, blazer, and pumps.

Sadly, we’re starting to get a yawn from this lounge pant and its amorphous shape. So before you dismiss that snooze button, let’s take a look at why the pajama-inspired pant may be hitting the sack.

The pajama inspired pant in all its comfy glory is not enough to stop us from ignoring the fact that we lose our shape when we toss a pair on. I’m sure they even get mistaken for clown pants because they’re so baggy. For ladies that may not be endowed in the back, this pant would definitely be a misstep!

In addition, there’s only so many ways you can style the pajama inspired pant. Anything slouchy on top and you look like a slob.

A fitted color tee typically works well with a jacket, but other than that, this pant is definitely not transferable with other looks unless you opt for a non-printed pair, but at that point you might as well don sweats.

Ditch the pajama inspired pant and go for a palazzo pant or wide leg jean if you still want the comfort.

Pajama inspired pants are getting the PINK SLIP!

Back That Thang Up & Into The Trash

Pink Slip Cheeky Shorts

It’s Time to Pink Slip The Cheeky Short

Feeling cheeky? Snap out of it!

Cheeky shorts—with or without a fringe hem—is definitely out. Chuck this trend into the same pool as tramp stamps, choker collars, and platform boots. (Slip dresses from the 90’s are the only trend that still gets a pass).

Though Pink Slip is a fan of baby-got-back style, believe it or not, there is such a thing as showing too much skin and cheeky shorts fall into that category.

Who knows where this trend cropped up from–I’m guessing during the pop princess era of Britney/Christina/Mariah–but cheeky shorts are still making rounds with teens and twenty-somethings trying way too hard to emphasize their barely-there-derriere.

Opt for a high-waisted, mid-thigh short instead, which will look fab with a cropped top, to accentuate the glutes and show off leg. Plus a high-waist short can work well at any scene, whereas the cheeky short may only be good for the beach or in a rap video.

Toss the risky-and-frisky style for a more fashion savvy skin-is-in look. Cheeky shorts are getting the PINK SLIP.

Pink Slip Ripped Jeans for Women

Pink Slip Overly Ripped Jeans for Women

Guest Post by Ashley Salinas

I’m not sure why anyone would want to be caught in overly ripped jeans. This trend needs to be pink slipped and quickly. Here’s why: there is no way to make this jean look good on anyone. Either you look like a stuffed sausage or you look like a hobo, and trust me when I say neither are flattering.

If you’re going for a boho-chic outfit, try a wide leg jean or pant for a bottom or a tassel hem wrap. Don’t be afraid to toss in a wide brimmed hat for extra drama. The ripped jeans for women look however just screams Tara Reid from a 90’s teen flick and though we’re bringing back the 90’s, this still isn’t part of the decades-repeating-itself revival.

Let’s say you do get the urge to slip on a pair of sliced up jeans, go easy and opt for a pair that maybe has two or three rips and not those that are going up and down the jean revealing your whole leg and then some. Minor wear and tear or distressed detailing totally gets the OK. It’s when we go for extremes that this style easily transitions into slop-fest territory.

Let’s save a trip to the mall for the overly ripped jeans look and Pink Slip this trend.

Let’s Get FUR-real!

Pink Slip Color Fur

Pink Slip Colored Fur

Pink Slip Fashion is back this week with another ghastly trend that’s getting the ax!

Though we’re writing from “still sunny” California while the rest of the country is probably facing crippling blizzards or hail storms, that doesn’t mean we aren’t experts at determining what’s in and what’s out when it comes to fur!

So kick back in your fuzzy slippers with warm cocoa in hand and read below why colored fur is getting the PINK SLIP.

Lose the Pink Leggings

Not-so-pretty-in-pink, toss this dated look back to the 80’s along with all of its ripped, shredded, and animal print varieties. From hot pink to bubblegum, this blushing shade is no longer tickling us in any sort of way.
