Are you afraid of the comeback of low rise jeans? Well, the trend might just be for “skinny” people — or so says a major influencer.
A popular TikToker took new fashion trends for a test drive — think low-cuts and extreme cuts — in a now-viral series that asks, “Is it trendy or just skinny?”
Content creator Emma Arletta tried to style a low-cut maxi skirt on her plus-size body, aiming to prove that some trends are just aimed at women with model figures.
“I really haven’t seen any woman my size rocking a low-waisted maxi skirt,” Arletta says in the clip, which has garnered more than 950,000 views. “And now I know why.”
She modeled the skirt below the midriff at the hipbones, just like the internet influencers, but she didn’t seem to be a fan of fashion.
While some users commented that she looks great, others weren’t sold on the fashion look.
“Yeah, I tried it too…it’s a poor trend,” one TikToker wrote.
“I am still traumatized by the low growth trend [of the] late 90s/early 2000s,” said another.
“It’s all just a no,” someone else agreed.
“Yeah I saw this trend come back in style and said no… I’ll stick with anything high waisted lol,” said another.
Arletta, who boasts more than 386,000 followers on the platform, regularly tells her followers all things fashion – from shopping sprees to viral clothing trends – all with a great body.
But as a fashion influencer, she’s dedicated to debuting popular fast fashion trends, finding out if they’re really worth the money or just another fad on the wane.
In other clips, she tries to pull off looks popularized by social media, like Emma Chamberlain’s iconic yoga pants and hoodie look, Hailey Bieber’s silk set, the over-the-top monochromatic trend and even the dress the revealing Poster Girl cut that Kylie Jenner once sported.
The vibrant, orange, barely-there dress also didn’t make the cut for Arlette, whose onlookers said they didn’t think it constituted “fashion”.
“It’s not fashionable, but you look good,” wrote one user.
“I personally don’t like the dress at all on anyone, but it looks good on you, if you like it wear it,” agreed another.
“I think you really suit that color and it’s a tricky color to pull off,” said someone else. “The dress isn’t all it’s cracked up to be imo, but you look beautiful.”
