What We Wouldn't Be Caught Dead In, Ever

It's our job to try on the trends, test drive the new silhouettes, and give crazy prints and colors a chance even when most normal people would be too cynical to wear 'em. What this means is that we know what we're talking about when we say that something doesn't work — and not even a Wintour-sized decree could get us to change our minds.
Don't get us wrong, we're not saying that these trends can't, or don't, work — in some cases they're downright lovely (except for the Skechers; those are abominations), but on us? Not so much. Click through for the 21 pieces you'll never see in our closets.
