At some point between late 2015 and early 2016, the ubiquitous cold-shoulder top took hold of fast fashion and has since refused to let go. You know the ones — those dumb, otherwise long-sleeved shirts with holes inexplicably cut from the shoulder. True to name, they make your shoulders cold and your life just a little bit worse. 

Now another another unforgivable trend is creeping its way into fast fashion stores across America. 

The style: Deconstructed shirting. 

The look: Business attire made borderline unwearable. 

Traditional dress shirts — with their wrinkle-prone fabrics and inability to stay neatly tucked — are uncomfortable as is. But despite their flaws, dress shirts also project professionalism and polish when well maintained. Deconstructed shirting projects neither of those things. 

Imagine trying to wear this:

Come on.

Imagine trying to iron this shirt when you are already 10 minutes behind schedule.

Imagine sitting down to dinner in an air-conditioned restaurant, but being unable to pull on a sweater due to your outsized left sleeve.

Imagine tying, untying, and re-tying that bow in the mirror for 15 minutes because a true, perfect bow is low-key impossible to achieve without the help of a machine. 

Imagine having just one sweaty armpit. Just one!

Are you taking it all in? Do you hate these shirts as much as I do? Good. Here are some others to hate-stare at.

The cold shoulder trend continues.

Cold shoulders AND  ruffles AND deconstructed shirting AND Millennial pink in one goddamn shirt.
