"Worst fashion" brings to mind those big shoulder pads on women in those classic 30s & 40s movies. Why would women think wide, boxy shoulders look good on women?! The boxy shoulder look is bad enough on men's suits. Nobody's built like a box, so it looks weird.

I suppose it looks okay on Romulans to match the pointy ears, but not humans.

As a kid in the 70s & 80s, I used to make fun of bell bottoms (some hippie friends & neighbors wore them. Yep, even in the 80s), but now I think they look good or interesting (especially on women) as long as they aren't overly wide.

I like some of the casual wear fashions of the 60s to 80s because they were different. I'm bored by sameness, especially the plain men's suits.
