List RulesVote up the fads that need to be over already in 2020.

Even though trends and fads are supposed to be transient things that have their moment of in popular culture are mocked or obsessed over and then abandoned for the next stupid trend. But some popular trends of 2020 have been holding on too long and should get off our feeds and out of our lives before 2021.

Whether it's beauty and fashion trends, food fads, the same takes clogging your feed, or just inexplicably popular things like specific Instagram filters, these are some trends that are due to be replaced in 2020. Or maybe the next big pop-up experience will combine all of them into a rebooted, discourse-filled, novelty food meme that influencers will share and reshare until we agree it is the newest, hottest thing.
