The ‘Ugly Fashion’ Trend Is In. And Kareena Kapoor Khan Is Doing It Right!
It is time for some fashion education. One of the biggest trends of 2019 that is slowing becoming favourable is the ‘ugly fashion’ look. wait, what? We break it down for you ladies, don’t worry. What exactly is ‘ugly fashion’? There are set markers for what can come under this umbrella term. But simply put, it is anything from articles of clothing or accessories that are deemed ‘ugly’ on their own. Obviously, there are going to be questions about exactly who decides something is ugly, given that fashion is quite subjective, and caters to individual likes and tastes. These fashion pieces are usually difficult to style, feature clashing colours and prints, something that might not catch your eye at first glance. Or even if they do, it isn’t for the right reasons.
For instance, we have ‘dad sandals’ (sandals with socks), that has gotten street style stars in a twist. Or the sudden rise in the popularity of cargo pants, utility chic poster child Anushka Sharma being the one responsible for making it a thing closer home. These tricky clothes are best left to their own devices.

While most Bollywood celebs are sticking to the tamer version of this trend, Kareena Kapoor Khan seems to be going all out to rock it on the daily.
The actress is in London with fam and wore an interesting (to say the least) tank top from Gucci in big polka prints and string tasselled bottom. The top seems straight out of our weirdly styled 90s wardrobe! It’s something we might have worn at 13, going to our first boy-girl party. Why does it work? First, the phenomenon of logomania is enough to hide the fact that the top itself is weird. Second, we don’t think Bebo really cares about the ‘ugliness’ of the top. It’s fun, fruity and something nobody else will wear. The idea of standing out, that is what this trend is going for!
Kareena sported another offbeat look while on her vacation overseas. The idea of a black sweatshirt with a big and bright floral detail in the middle might give the rest of us anxiety. Our friends would not be any kinder with their phulon ka guldasta lag rahi hai comments. But Bebo added solid jeans, funky shoes and smart bag to the mix. We also love the hint of neon afforded by her sneakers in the look!
