We all love a good trend and there are some pieces in our wardrobes that we just can't live without.

But while most of these pieces are super-duper easy and handy, there are the few that are just so impractical you wonder why you ever bought them in the first place.

But then again, you look in the mirror and remember that you are rocking that trend (no matter how hard it is to walk).


Strapless Tops

Has anyone ever managed to wear a strapless top or dress without having to pull it up constantly throughout the day? We've all been there and while they might look oh-so-chic, it is a pain to have to keep adjusting.


Platform boots

While you might think you look like a member of the Spice Girls with platform boots, good luck running for a bus in them. They totally slow you down and make you feel like you have a heavy bag of sugar dragging from your feet.


Pencil skirt

A good pencil skirt is perfect office attire. They are probably one of the most flattering skirt shapes on the market and ooze sexiness too. But it's better to keep still while wearing one as you will resemble a penguin hobbling along the office floor if you try to walk. Not such a good look.


Leather trousers

Admit it, you own a pair. And if you don't you have definitely thought about it. It's alright, we all think we look like a rock princess if we wear a pair. But be warned, what happened to Ross is Friends is a legit concern. They will either stick to you as you try to get them on or off; and we won't even mention the squeaking that comes on when you walk. 




These pieces are a God send when you're stuck for something to wear as they are so easy to pop on in the morning and you instantly look great. But have you tried to go to the toilet in one? Hello freezing upper body as you have to strip all the way down to pee. The struggle is real. 


White jeans

This is another item that mostly everyone has in their wardrobe. They look great on and how perfect are they for summer days? They're fabulous really – until you spill your glass of red wine down them, oh and that piece of chocolate, and every other piece of food you eat that day. They are a magnet for any type of stain and within an hour the pristine whiteness is now blotted and smeared and you have to pop them in the wash again. #drag




These features are either ridiculous or ridiculously expensive – so why do we want them so badly?

5. A town in a kid’s room
