Ha, guess what? It seems like we will remember the second half of summer 2018 for the 3 things I can’t even. Never say never, but I could never wear these 3 things. No matter how fashionable they are, you must certainly won’t see me wearing these 2018 IT items. So screw the Instagram and fashion trends and bless the girls who are brave enough to wear them, because I just can’t even these 3 summer’s 2018 IT things. Yes, bike shorts are one of them.
THEY MIGHT BE FASHIONABLE THIS SUMMER, BUT I COULD NEVER WEAR THEM
So what are the 3 summer IT items I could never wear? You might actually know this already since I shamed all of the three in my recent posts.
Yes, it’s the bike shorts, single toe-loop sandals and the denim culottes.
There is not much to be said. In short, I dislike them all. And no, not only because they came out of the blue. We certainly didn’t see them coming a few months ago when I published my Fashion trend report (check here in case you missed it).
Here is why I hate these 3 summer 2018 IT items.
Ps. I did however found few examples of these 3 items that I don’t entirely dislike. Just in case, you would like to give them a try. Be sure to click on the items in the widgets below to shop them.

#1 BIKE SHORTS
My dislike of the bike shorts goes way back to my childhood. Not sure if bike shorts were actually in fashion in the 90s or my sister simply liked them, but my mother bought us a pair of horrendous bike shorts when I was around 5 or so. Mine bike shorts were green, and they made me feel small and fat whenever I wore them.
Not that I wore them often, but I certainly didn’t know how to style them. And yes, I dressed by myself since I recall. That is since I was 2. Anyway, as said, as a 5-year old I certainly didn’t know how to wear bike shorts. Browsing through my childhood photos, I saw I styled them with high heeled clogs once.
HERE IS HOW TO WEAR CYCLING SHORTS – IF YOU CAN’T RESIST THIS EDGY TREND
Even though entirely inappropriate for a child, wearing cycling shorts with heels wasn’t that bad idea at all. As a matter of fact, this is the best way to wear bike shorts, especially if you are petite.
Ps. If you are giving a try to bike shorts this summer, then be sure to wear them the way Kim Kardashian West did the other day. After the number of tries, Ms West finally pulled this trend off as a legit fashionista.
This is how she wore her bike shorts. Only better.
I still prefer to wear tailored shorts and silk shorts (see which ones here) instead.
#2 SINGLE TOE-LOOP SANDALS
There is only one reason why I dislike toe-loop sandals. They look uncomfortable. Well, I actually had two reasons before finding those toe-loop sandals you see in the widget below. I found them extremely ugly too. But I changed my mind after seeing these.
By the way, have you ever tried walking in toe-loop sandals? Are they as uncomfortable as they look? I really wonder if you could convince me to swap my luxe pool slides for single toe-loop sandals. By the way, here is how I wear luxe pool slides now.
#3 DENIM CULOTTES
Like culottes weren’t horrendous enough by themselves already they made them of denim too. But it’s not the material that made me put this pants on my Never Wearing List. No, there is more than that.
Firstly, I don’t think I could pull them off regarding my size. I’m not that high you know. Yet! Since I’m still growing. Nevertheless, I doubt I will grow enough before culottes come back in fashion.
Secondly, because of the way one girl, I happen to know, wore them. She is way smaller than me, and she styled them with an off the shoulder top with puffed ruffled sleeves which made her look like an apple.
Mentioning the ruffled sleeves, another thing you won’t see me wearing. Luckily these sleeves are passe already. Fingers crossed these 3 items go out of style soon too. Or at least before I change my mind and give them a try. Thinking better these culottes in the widget below aren’t that bad, are they?
By the way, what are some IT summer items you could never wear? Or fashion trends you just can’t? How do you feel about single toe-loop sandals and bike shorts?
