12 Very Questionable Debs Trends We All Fell Victim To
Diamantes, so many diamantes...
Your Debs night is a magical night.
You plan weeks, months, years even, in advance of what you're going to wear, what your hair will be like and of course the big question: who you're going to bring.
The night comes and you pass it in a glorious drunken state, and you get on with your life, full of happy, hazy memories from that night.
But we're here to shed some light on Debs of the past. They weren't all as glamorous as you remember - leopard print dresses. Need I say any more?
Not to worry as we all succumbed to these, at the time, very trendy Debs trends.
1. Satin woven from the Gods themselves
Was there any more desirable material for your Debs dress than satin? The shinier, the better.
2. A lovely shawl for your shoulders
Or if you're feeling fierce fancy, a pashmina.
Still pretty happy with my debs dress. Also, bring back the beehive. pic.twitter.com/kD9YRPWIJX— Lisa Powell (@lisadree) October 1, 2016
3. One shoulder dresses
But the size of the strap is key: the smaller and thinner the better.
4. Channeling your inner Greek Goddess
Honestly, if your dress didn't resemble a stylish modern toga, who even were you?
5. It's all about the patterns
The bigger, and quite frankly, the more floral, the more stylish you were.
6. The only way is maxi
For a good while in the Debs world, maxi dresses were all the rage. Were you heading to the beach or to your Debs? Unclear, but you were the height of sophistication.
7. As much material as your body can handle
Indulging your inner Princess spirit and making that skirt is poofy as possible. Was it impractical? Most definitely. But was it cool? Hell yes.
6 years ago from yesterday I made my debs and wore a huge dress that made it very difficult to do anything, especially pee 😂😂 pic.twitter.com/rt30EbjsrG— Rachel Shaw Hyland (@Crazy__DogLady) October 2, 2016
8. Short and sweet
Short, flouncy dresses made their debut. They didn't stay around very long, but they made their mark.
