Weird Style Trends You'll Actually Like | Clozette


There's no shortage of bizarre fashion trends; the throwback photos of your teenage self is enough evidence of that. Over the years, numerous comical fads have graced people's wardrobes. From bullet bras to visible thongs, wearing strange trends is just part and parcel of living. While most of it is cringe-worthy in hindsight, there are some kooky styles that we're fond of. For example, bell bottoms and babydoll dresses are really fashionable when worn the right way. These days we've also been spotting new unusual style trends that actually look quite cool. Only time can tell if we're gonna regret sporting these pieces but as of the moment, here are the weird style trends that you just might end up loving.


Frankenstein dress



These bizarre but really cool dresses feature pattern hybrids. Sometimes even the fabrics will be different, usually with one being velvet and the other in cotton. Even though it looks strange, it works because the two different designs are complementary. In a way, it's just a more minimalistic approach to the patchwork dresses that were previously in vogue. 


Prairie girl



As the saying goes, everything old will be new again. We've seen the comeback of various vintage trends but what we didn't expect is the return of a 19th-century style. Inspired by what people wore in the prairie area during the 1800s, several fashion houses have revived the style and made it less frumpy but more 'ruffly'. It's whimsical, stylish and surprisingly very comfortable.


Extra puffy sleeves



We're no stranger to unique sleeve designs but these puffy ones caught our fancy the most. It seems like a nightmare for petite frames but strangely it looks good on anyone as long as the rest of the dress is well-fitted to the body. If you wanna try this style, we recommend you go for a piece with floral patterns instead of a monochrome one as those with patterns showcase the silhouette better. 


Pyjamas



Take comfy fashion to the next level by wearing pyjamas outside the bedroom. If lingerie and bralettes can be on public display then what's so scandalous about walking outside in your sleepwear? But of course, make things a little more polished and presentable before strutting on the streets. For maximum comfort, pair it with your favourite set of sneakers.



Deep V



We're not just talking about tops that reveal deep cleavage, what we're referring to are those dresses with frontal cuts that go all the way down to the navel. This style is usually spotted at beach resorts where it's a popular 'just got out of the pool' outfit. Would you try this glam and daring look?
