Most of 2011’s fashion was pretty, as well as pretty mild. Could it be the influence of the Middleton sisters? Or could it be that after the fashion disasters of previous years, people were too pooped to think ugly fashion thoughts? Whatever the reason, there were still four cringing trends that tortured us. Read on and find out what they were.

1. Feather Extensions

First spotted on Kesha, feather extensions were a trend that celebs actually followed. We seen dangling feathers mixed in with tresses on Selena Gomez, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Heidi Klum, Selena Gomez, and the worst offender, Steven Tyler. His clip on feathers looked like he was hiding small birds in his hair.

Wouldn’t it be easier to just glue a bird to your head?

The only good thing about feather extensions–you don’t have to worry about bird poop.

2. Rompers

Rompers may have been darling to look at, but any woman knows that the idea of having to go to the bathroom wearing one rules out the purchase of one. When confronted with the image of Kim Kardashian, Jessica Szohr, Anna Faris, Britney Spears, Cameron Diaz, or any other celeb wearing a romper, most women don’t say, “Oh, she looks so cute.” They do say,”Poor thing’s gonna miss half the award show trying to get in and out of that romper.”

Sorry, designers; women don’t want to get nekkid anytime they have to tinkle. That’s why there were oodles of rompers on the clearance racks. Take the hint and stop designing them.

 3. Turbans

Jason Wu, Vena Cava and Georgio Armani styled their spring 2011 lines with turbans. Sometimes an accessory ought to stay on the runway. It didn’t. We suddenly saw (normally) very fashionable women like Rachel Roy, Salma Hayak and Nicole Scherizinger plop them on their heads. Rachel Zoe wore hers like a beret, yet it still managed to come off as dated and costumey. Poor Hayley Hasselhoff (her entire outfit is a no) followed the fad, and pity all the wanna be fashionistas tried them too. Can you imagine all those itchy scalps under those tight-fitting caps? Seriously, nothing signifies that you need to hit up a colorist more than a turban.

4. Celeb Trend: Constant Color Change

One minute they’re blonde, the next any color of the rainbow. Katy Perry started with a blue wig; then the color madness set in, and she’s since been pale peach, mustard and hot pink. Glee’s Dianna Agron has tried pink and orange. Nick Minaj’s wigs are usually multi-colored, but once in awhile she picks a solid color. Oh, and let’s not forget Lady Gaga. We’ve seen various shades of turquoise and just can’t figure out if it’s a wig or she’s dye-crazy.

The first time we see a celeb with tresses a color not found in nature, it looks cool. However, by constantly changing the color of their hair, they stop looking chic and cool. Instead they start to look like caricatures desperate for attention.

Tell us: what 2011 trends do you want to go away, never to be heard or seen from again?
