Surveys Say If You Bought Leather Pants Last Year, You Probably Regretted It


Some trends infect the fashion world like a disease and it’s only a matter of time before you catch the bug. One of those trends last year was leather pants and surveys say that they are the trend you most regret buying into. 

Surveys Say If You Bought Leather Pants Last Year, You Probably Regretted It

The sparkling perry manufacturer Lambrini has conducted a survey of 2000 women surrounding trends they most regret purchasing. With a 46% regret factor, leather pants topped the charts as the “most regrettable purchase”.

As sexy as leather can be, the material can be very unforgiving and expensive to purchase, making its number one position logical. Following leather pants is an interesting contender, shell suits. While no one we know of has bought a “shell suit” since circa 1995, it makes sense that the swishy noise of  thighs rubbing together still may haunt many women today. An lastly rounding out the top three is the deliciously tacky trend of velour tracksuits.

Check out what other trends of Christmas past still haunt your memories below. How many of these have you bought into? A lady never reveals her past fashion faux-pas, but your closet sure doesn’t lie.

1. Leather trousers
2. Shell suits
3. Velour tracksuits 
4. Fluorescent outfits
5. See-through tops
6. Bum bags*
7. Crop tops/ belly tops
8. Puffy jackets
9. Crocs
10. Thigh-highboots
11. Hot pants
12. Clogs
13. Miniskirts
14. Flared trousers

*note Lambrini is a brand from the United Kingdom, so we have no-idea what the hell “bum-bags” are

A pair of Christian Louboutin red studded pumps has been voted the “Sexiest Shoe” by Footwear News. These are one purchase that we’re positive that no one would ever regret.
