However, each of the looks are fun to wear, but they come with an implicit set of...

(celebrities like Fergie love shooties) Harem pants. Feather accessories. Mullet dresses. Are you sensing a pattern? Yes, though these trends of yesteryear were once everywhere, each one has quickly disappeared from the racks at your favorite store (and from your wardrobe).
