Some “Fashion” Trends Need to Stop by Nate Cedilla

Emore mentioned Nate Cedilla’s “Some ‘Fashion’ Trends Need to Stop” but I thought it was too good to be glossed over. And plus you need facebook to see it. Plus plus he’s also a good friend of ours so here we present Nate Cedilla’s genius commentary.


Shemaghs/trendy messy scarves are played out. They were cool half a year ago, but now everyone is rocking them in the wrong kind of way. Granted, they once looked cool. But, the hipster killed it pretty hard.

You know it’s bad when people start pairing a shemagh with a pair of flip flops and a polo. Half the people wearing them don’t even know their true origin (or name).

Shutter shades are only to be seen at Kanye concerts and on Kanye’s face. Everyone knew these things would be everywhere after the “Stronger” video.

Plus, Kanye didn’t even patent this look. Look up Sho Nuff from Berry Gordy’s “The Last Dragon”.

Get a regular pair of sunglasses. Preferably ones that don’t look like Venetian Blinds.


Tramlines/designs shaved into your head.


Stop buying Abercrombie and Fitch. They are overcharging you for the most generic look on Earth. If you want a polo, buy something that’s quality. Their pants will not fit you well and you will smell like the mall. If you are an Asian-American, you shouldn’t even be looking at Abercrombie’s stuff.

They made a shirt that said “Two Wongs Make it White”.

This goes for Ruehl, Hollister, Guess, Express Men, American Eagle or anything of the like.


Unless you want to look like a frat bro, stash away your overly plaid shorts. Save the red cups, roofie-coladas and Rainbow Flip Flops for another day.


V-neck shirts are okay. Deep V-necks aren’t. Not even hipsters or LA club rats wear these things anymore.


The only ironic thing about an “ironic” tee is that you aren’t as cool as you think.

    For the 1st time in reading this style blog I felt flabbergasted about the comments that this author had to say. “Nate” your pseudo expertise in fashion has definitely alluded to the already “known” and “bandwagon” facts about the fashion you just mentioned. Blah blah blah, we get it, the clothes just mentioned are overrated and out of style.

    However, what you’ve failed to do, like the other bloggers here, is link to sources? use your “opinion” voice rather than “i am god always right” voice.

    It is in my opinion that you’re style of writing (and maybe even you) makes you seem pretentious. And, I hope you never write on this blog again.

    I love your blog, but I’m ashamed to admit that I still rock my Kanye glasses and my scarves. You must be a fashion expert to be schooling people on a blog. I LOVE IT! Since your that hip to the fashion game, check out Bianca’s wardrobe from Toyota’s “If Looks Could KIll” series, and let me know if what she’s sporting is “in”. I think her style is mad hott, but judging from this blog I could be wrong. hahaha.

    The webisodes follow an aspiring fashion assistant, Bianca Turner (played by Femi Emiola, Wicked Wicked Games), who is a prime example of a woman who’s got it going on. I’m talking the dream job, a man who’s got all the ladies drooling, and the spice to keep it all together when hell hits the fan. Think James Bond meets Sanaa Lathan in “Something New”, Bianca is the girl who isn’t afraid to run in her Louboutin heels!


    The fourth episode-Family Jewels- has been available since 7/7, but it’s not too late to catch up and tune in. I work with Toyota, so take my word for it.
    I’m sure that you will be reeled in, so don’t be surprised when you are. Also, don’t forget to hit me up with the scoop on your thoughts, or comments from others, about the webisodes.

    Looking forward to the chit-chat and good fashion advice!
