Every fashion week, designers send looks down the runway that inspire a collective GASP! among the audience. Maybe that’s why they the play music so loud? We’re kidding about an actual gasp – it’s more of a figurative one, when the designer pushes the envelope what feels like a little too far. Not all trends are love at first sight–in fact, some you even hate at first. Remember the first time you saw wedge sneakers? Or super skinny jeans? Or those pointy-toe pumps from the Manolo Blahnik era? You hated them right? Ok, now raise your hand if you have all 3 of those items in your closet. Exactly.

(It’s so middle school!) What about all these damn hat trends? Who can pull off a beanie?! We’re with you–some of the looks are a bit questionable. But what we know for sure is that you’ll be clamoring for them come September. Click through the slideshow above to see 11 fall trends that you hate now–but will be spending your money on next month.
