The Trends Our Readers Hated This Year
We admire a strong opinion, especially when it comes to personal style. We may not agree, and even the best arguments might not convince us to wear something out of our comfort zones, but nonetheless we’re all ears (and eyes and Instagram likes) when someone has a unique point of view. Which is why we turned to you, the Who What Wear readers, when looking for the least popular trends of the year.
According to the comments you’ve left on social media and within our stories, we tracked down five controversial styles that didn’t always get your stamp of approval. Scroll down to see what made the list, and shop some alternative pieces that might appeal to your taste a bit more.

Instead try The Sock Bootie

According to readers, there's a reason flared jeans "went out of style" during their heyday in the past. And some just simply aren't on board with their reemergence.
Instead try A Ripped Hem
Hated trend: Kitten Heels
Instead try A low, chunky heel
