The fugliest, worst fashion trends in history. Rank & vote on the worst fashion disasters by awfulness and add any you see are missing. We don't know why these things were popular, and we never will... looking back, all we can do is burn the photos and pretend it never happened. Terrible trends seem to be something that sweeps through a population like an infection, perming hair and ruining school photos... only to burn itself out and have people slowly come to their senses and realize they are actually wearing a denim unitard in public. The worst fashion trends in history are just as memorable--if not more--than the best fashion trends. Behold! The ugliest things people have put on their bodies in the name of fashion.

What are the worst fashion trends? Check out these historical fashion disasters and after you are done laughing, vote! This list also includes the dumbest fashion trends of the 21st century so you just may see some that you wore back in the day. Ha!

Check out more lists like Best Current Putters in Golf, Sara Paxton Hot, Carice Van Houten Hot, Biggest First Round NBA Draft Pick Busts and Best Grateful Dead Albums

List Criteria: Add and upvote the worst fashion trends. Clothes, hairstyles or body modifications that are generally bad for society.
