A standout designer accessory is a key part of any girl’s wardrobe. If you’re dropping a fortune on a pair of shoes or a handbag though, you better make sure it won’t go out of style faster than the most recent Yeezy collection. However, most of us have been momentarily hypnotized by a famous label at some point and bought something we immediately regretted. To ensure that this never happens again, here’s a tentative list of some of the worst designer accessories that you should avoid like the plague.
Anything Michael Kors
Let’s get the worst one out of the way first. It is safe to say that anyone who owns accessories by Michael Kors has no taste. His clothing is at least somewhat acceptable, but there is no excuse for the handbags. It’s the go-to brand for people who want a designer piece, but can’t afford anything else.
Louis Vuitton Tote Bag
This accessory comes in at a close second. I thought heavily logoed handbags went out of style back in 2007, but apparently not. Spoiled sorority girls everywhere from SMU to UCLA can be spotted lugging this ugly tote around to class. Conformity at its finest.
Celine Luggage Bag
Considered an “it” bag for several seasons now, Celine has since come up with a range of colors for you to experiment with so you’re tricked into believing you designed your own purse. The wide array of color and texture options has resulted in some seriously fugly concoctions. Whoever thought a combo of neon orange and maroon would make for a cute purse has too much money and not enough common sense.
Gucci Fur Loafers
Gucci has had quite the turnaround in the past year with it’s new creative director Alessandro Michele at the helm. Still, these fur lined slippers that everyone’s currently obsessing over look like a dead animal, not to mention the disgusting amount of dirt that fur must pick up.
Stella McCartney Platform Oxfords
These shoes made their debut a while back, and unfortunately they still have not left the scene. Unless you’re trying out for the circus, take your $900 and spend it on something a little less clown like.
Alexander McQueen Skull Scarf
Goth/Emo, or whatever it was called, was never a good look for anybody, not even in 2005. I’m seriously confused as to why people continue to obsess over this skull printed scarf, which has most likely been pulled straight out of a Good Charlotte music video.
Don’t have enough money to buy a Chanel handbag? Let’s buy a pair of cheap looking espadrille slippers instead just to show off those iconic intertwining C’s. These are the present day equivalent to the Coach sneakers everyone wanted 10 years ago.
I find it hard to believe that Raf Simons ever thought these trainers were a good idea during his tenure at Dior. Though they were clearly only meant to last one season, over the past 2 years they’ve been copied an endless number of times by fast fashion brands and worn by Asian tourists everywhere. They are essentially glorified alien shoes topped off with a tacky sequined embellishment.
