Spring 2009 Trend Bad Taste

Trend Alert: Bad Taste

This Spring an unusual trend emerged on the catwalk. Instead of trying to look elegant and classy, a penchant for bad taste appeared with animal prints, clashing colours and funky neon shades gracing the catwalk. This style was present across the fashion capitals from London to Milan with everybody from Christopher Kane, to Danielle Scutt to Just Cavalli rocking the bad taste look. M.I.A already tried out bad taste at this year's Grammy Awards where she wore a Manish Arora babydoll frock with a bright yellow bra.

Lady Gaga also continues to pioneer the look with leotards and wild headwear. There is a definite '80s vibe to this look as denim jackets, printed leggings and white stilettos make a come back. Animal print has been popular for a while but leopard print (especially this Agent Provocateur bodysuit) is experiencing a moment. How do you feel about this style (or perhaps that should be lack of?)

I hate all 80's style and I really hate all animal print, but other than that yellow skirt in the first picture, I don't have a problem with any of these looks - in fact, I love the last one! I will agree that MIA's look with the sneakers and yellow bra were just tacky, but I think you can pull of contasting and neon colors with class...

whoops i pressed the wrong button before i finished....obviously im not keen on the leopard print over thingy.....im not really sure what to call it. Its awful. but apart from that its all really bad, i think designers go over the top with trying to be unique and just go unruly.

I love it. I don't know what has happened to me, but I love this trend and I want to wear it everyday. I don't care what anyone says.

I kind of love the look on the far right. As far as putting this into practice, I'm not so sure. ;)
