Say goodbye to your little blazer because winter's almost over. Replacing the atrocious Muppet coats and slouchy pants of your cold-weather wardrobe are a new batch of totally repulsive fashion options that are set to trend this spring. Here's what not to wear.

Sporty Sandals Your dad might know a thing or two about practical outdoorsy footwear. But that does not mean you should wear sandals resembling his standbys for science hikes.

Visible Undies Not only are the undies of spring very visible, they are also massive, up-to-your-belly-button-style granny panties. What would you dear old grandmother say? We'll wage a guess: Stop being a jackass and put on some bottoms that aren't see-through, honey.

Metallics We are quite familiar with the whole "you are what you eat" thing. But we remove the wrappers from our candy prior to inhaling, thank you very much.

Flowy Pants Show us one person who looks fabulous in big, billowy culottes. One! Oh, wait, you can't. Because they're terrible, and nobody looks good in them.

Graphic T-Shirts Words are for books, not boobs.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
