Selena Gomez, You're Selling Me on These "Ugly" Trends

I won't hide it, I'm kind of obsessed with Selena Gomez's style. These days it seems like anything Selena Gomez wears, I want to wear. Whether she's designing our dream pair of white sneakers or teaching us brand-new ways to wear leggings, you'll always find me duly taking notes of her cool off-duty outfit combinations. Lately, though, she's been testing out certain "ugly" trends I've long been on the fence about, and I have to say that the following Selena Gomez outfits are seriously selling me on the unconventional trends.

Items like grandma cardigans and wire-frame eyeglasses have always carried a nerdy connotation, but when styled by Selena herself, they're the must-have trends that she makes look infinitely cooler than anyone else I know. Curious to see which "ugly" fashion items are Selena-approved? Go on to see the six trends she's totally selling me on and then shop my picks for each of them.

Okay, we definitely used to think this nerdy footwear combination was a fashion "don't". But lately we've been seeing socks and loafers all over the place, and Selena Gomez's casual-cool take on the trend with skinny jeans and a graphic sweatshirt has us pretty much sold.

Whether or not Selena's wearing prescription glasses is kind of beside the point because she makes the nerdy-chic style look way more "chic" than "nerdy".

The Trend: Platform Sneakers

For those of us with more classic style, chunky-soled sneakers don't tend to top our shopping lists. But leave it to this sleek, all-black Selena Gomez outfit to make us reconsider platform sneakers.

Available in sizes 35 to 41.

The Trend: Tube Socks

This particular Selena Gomez outfit is proving to us that thick tube socks are definitely an off-duty style staple that looks especially great with classic black leggings and a denim jacket.
