WITH constantly changing trends it can be hard to keep track of what's currently stylish.
It turns out there are some trends that are never going to work and just look a bit cheap and tacky.
Fashion expert Niki Sky revealed what some of these trends are and explained just why they're so bad.
Cheap designer dupes
Getting the designer look for less is a no go for Niki, she explains that she understands when shops like Zara take inspiration from the designer runways, but when it's a complete knock off it can look pretty tacky.
"It should not be acceptable," Niki says.
Niki says that she wishes this trend "would just die," as she explained why she hates them so much.
It doesn't matter if you buy your own strip lashes or get lash extension applied by a professional, they're all awful according to the fashion lover.
Niki recommended a more natural eyelash lift, rather than donning the falsies, as a less tacky alternative.
Bad fake tan
"I'm all for sunless tanning," Niki confessed, "I love to have a nice tan and glow all year round," adding that she even used fake tan herself.
You've got to take the time to learn to apply fake tan well, she says.
Otherwise you run the risk of not only looking like an oompa loompa, but also really cheap.
Niki says that glitter "tends to make you look really immature and much younger than you are, and not in a good way."
She adds: "If you're out of school, you should probably graduate from the whole glitter trend."

"It just looks really really tacky and it's screaming for attention, but not in the best way possible," Niki says.
She adds that covering your body in an outfit with the same logo plastered all over it looks "really unoriginal", even if it's a classy brand, donning the logo from head to toe isn't chic.
Coloured contact lenses
Niki confessed that she used to wear coloured contacts when she was younger, but now she thinks they fall into the cheap and tacky catagory.
If you want to experiment with a different eye colour, "there's always Halloween," she says.
Teasing your roots is a great way to get some extra volume in your hair, but over doing it can look "really unkept and unruly," Niki says.
"If you're one of those people that tends to over tease your roots, calm down, take a chill pill," Niki said.
She added: "I think it really ages a person."
Socks with sandals
This is one that most people probably agree with, while it may be comfy, it's just not the best look.
Niki says that wearing socks with sandals or flats on a fashion runway "can look super cute and preppy, but in real life most people can't pull this off."
"I'm really surprised to see this trend still around today," the fashion pro says.
It doesn't even have to be actual concealer, but a lip colour that is the same colour as your skin.
"I think it's really unflattering, it makes you look unwell," Niki said.
Super tight clothes
Clothes that you can barely breathe in a big no for Niki.
When clothes are too tight you can see every bulge, she explained that it's not a flattering look and is "so 2000's."
Too much gold jewellery
Niki said: "When you start going overboard and layer on the gold earrings, and the gold chains to the point where you can't even see your neck anymore, that's when it looks very very tacky."
If you're a gold jewellery lover, she explained that they key is "to be conservative with the pieces you chose, and to try and find some balance."
Other the top fake nails are not classy, according to Niki.
Bright neon colours, gems, and other garish designs look "not only tacky, but really begs the question of how one gets things done," Niki said.
"Crazy long or accessorised" nails will never look as good as a shorter, more simple style, according to the fashion guru.
