04 Dec Mo The Comedian shares a list of forgettable fashion trends that need to be left in the last decade
The trends of today will quickly become the forgettable fashion trends and memes of tomorrow. And the last decade was a wild time for fashion.
At the start of the decade, it made sense to walk into Topman and buy a white tee with Rihanna’s ‘Loud’ album cover plastered across it. It was even more of a sound piece of styling advice to accompany that
completely unique tee with a pair of Nike Blazers, with bonus points awarded depending on how colourful your shoes were.
Thankfully, Mo Gilligan, otherwise known as Mo The Comedian, has provided a summary of some of the wildest fashion choices this past decade with incredible accuracy in a brilliant thread on Twitter.
Fresh off his first sold-out nationwide tour, where he sold over 50,000 tickets across the UK, as well as a Netflix special, Mo is going back on tour again in 2020. ‘There’s Mo To Life’ is his latest tour and this time, as well as 21-dates in the UK, the Channel 4 host will also visit Australia, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Norway, Sweden, Netherlands and the United States.

Without further ado, here is Mo The Comedian’s list of forgettable fashion trends that need to be left in the last decade:
The Ed Hardy phase
“Ed Hardy. These vajazzle looking tops need never come back imo”
“Shamballa bracelets these were just Anal beads with glitter”
Those Rihanna t-shirts
“If you didn’t wear this topman t-shirt with chinos was you even with us this decade”
Franklin & Marshall
“Every Roadman to Essex was sorting this tracksuit a few years ago. It banged with some white Air Force”
“I blame ASAP & Kanye for these shorts and tights combos. Watch The Throne times”
Superdry’s ‘Osaka’ tees
“This was the Oceana student night entry level top for guys who just got their loan”
True Religion jeans
“You could see the stitching from space it was so loud. Every rapper had a pair of these jeans”
All red trainers
“The all red trainers phase”
Balenciaga Arena High trainers
“Listen when I managed to get pair of Balenciaga arena high’s I thought I completed life. Big up the people who coped from Aliexpress and they’d start spreading out”
Denim shirt, chino & vans combo
“Denim Shirt & Chinos with some white vans couldn’t be beaten a few years ago”
Lyle & Scott jumpers
“Turn up to the club with it being -15 degrees with no coat (except for up north because they don’t wear coats AT ALL) so everyone can see that Lyle & Scott bird”
“Some of you girls were wearing these wedge trainer/boots put them in the bin”
“S/o you woke guys with your wooden beads”
“*Alexa Play* Tinie Tempah – Pass Out”
G-Star Raw jeans
“G Star raw jeans were elite. Couldn’t afford a pair so I had to go River Island who’d remix them and make their own ones or Blue Inc where I’d get my free belt wit the jeans”
