Peacocking At Cinespace: 7 Trends We Wish Would Go Away

by THEO HENDRIX · July 7, 2010

A recent night at Cinespace read like an index of some of today's biggest, most ridiculous, and downright unattractive trends there are to exploit. L.A. hipsters and party children came out to the Hollywood Boulevard club to listen to music, socialize and get their flaunt on, showing the world how just how hip and edgy they are aren't. From facial hair to taking selfies, we spotted at least seven sorry trends amid this peacocking display...

Guyliner: Was this ever cool? Now that Panic! At the Disco and Fall Out Boy are no longer popular, it's safe to say the raccoon eyed-man look is as dead as disco.  And let's be honest, that much eyeliner isn't okay on anyone, ESPECIALLY a dude.

-

Man Tanks & Moobs: We think American Apparel is to blame for this abomination of style and the widespread notion that man tanks are ever acceptable, let alone hip.  As far as we are concerned, it is never okay for a male to be wearing a tank top, particularly if it showcases his ample rack and need for a training bra.

-

Public Make Out Sessions: Oh, holler 7th grade!

-

Sunglasses Inside: To everyone who thinks it's cool to wear sunglasses inside: it's not. And makes you look like an asshole. Clearly there's no sunlight inside a nightclub, so while trying to look all rebellious and like you don't care, you're actually communicating the opposite, as the sunnies are not out of necessity, but instead purely aesthetic. Unless it's the look you're going for, sunglasses indoors at night should be relegated to the likes of The Situation, Scott Storch and other such douches of that caliber.

-

SideBoob: There's a reason why people created bras. No matter how much you like your own boobs, it's not right to get all National Geographic on us.

-

"You totes have to Default this!"

Social Media Self-Portraiture: Okay, so maybe this trend isn't going away anytime soon, but it should. Enough already... How many pouty, kissy-face selfies can one stomach? Get a job.

-

Ironic Facial Hair: Yeah, we get it broham. You have that curly-end mustache because it's so uncool that it's cool. Except it's not. You look like Captain Jack Sparrow. Shouldn't you be on Melrose somewhere?
