“The worst trends for me were flatforms and pajama-inspired looks. I didn’t like them on the runway, and if it doesn’t look good on a gorgeous 6 foot model, then you know it’s not a trend worth investing in.”

- Jennifer Davidson, cofounder and managing editor

Polka dots – I love them in moderation but I’ve seen where people take the trend too far.”

- Beth Herbst, cofounder and style editor

Flatforms — no matter how many times I see this trend, I still hate it and think it’s unflattering on ANY legs!”

- Anna Rice, StyleBakeryTeen fashion and beauty editor

“The grunge meets I-just-rolled-out-of-bed meets I-paid-$100-for-this-t-shirt-although-it-looks-like-it-cost-$5 trend. I am not into the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo for H&M collection. I think no matter what your style is, you should look pulled together, and never sloppy.”

- Daisy Lewellyn, style contributor and “queen of effortless chic”

“The jumper! It looks horrible on 99% of the people who wear them — leave it behind in childhood.”

- Bronwyn Berger-Hughes, beauty contributor

Pajamas. Need I say more?”

- Elizabeth Mitchell, StyleBakeryTeen star style editor

“I seriously hate oxford pumps. I just don’t think they’re chic or sophisticated. I’m all for menswear dressing, but they just look TOO mannish for me.”

- Jamie Allison Sanders, beauty editor

“The lingerie-inspired outfits that became the norm this year were a total disaster!”

- Haley Hogan, StyleBakeryTeen gossip editor

Faux fur. Sometimes there is TOO much of a good thing and the fur has been flying everywhere. I’m over it already.”

- Christine Fox, StyleBakeryMom style editor

Drop-crotch pants were just awful. I can usually find some redeeming quality in any trend but this one just mystified me. Suffice it to say, I didn’t even attempt it.”

- Courtney Strimel, StyleBakeryMom style editor

“Happy mix and match prints. It looks so pretty and eclectic on the runways, then I try it and it looks like I dressed in the dark.”

- Stacy Cox, TV expert and style contributor
