Money-saving site www.CouponCodes4u.com polled 2,107 fashion-savvy Americans and found that among all the bad trends of the past year, meggings -- aka leggings for men -- were the least favorite trend, garnering 57 percent of votes.

Meggings were followed closely in lack of love by head-to-toe animal print, with 53 percent of votes, and onesies at 49 percent.

But even though many people hated on the trend, they still may have worn it at one point or another.

“It is interesting to see how interested Americans are in the latest fashion trends, and one thing they seem to be able to agree on is that the worst fashion trend from 2012 was the meggings trend,” said Mark Pearson, chairman of the site. “While many fashion-savvy shoppers were happy to vote on which trends they felt were the worst, what struck me was how many consumers admitted that they not only wore the fashion trend in question, but many of them even liked the piece at the time.”

So if you were caught sporting one of the least-liked trends, you’re definitely not alone. “Just goes to show how quickly trends change, which isn’t good news for our wallets. People should keep their wardrobes fashionable by customizing their clothes or pairing certain items with other fashion pieces to change the look but keep it current. You don’t have to spend a fortune to look good, especially with so many coupons and sales available.”

1. Meggings -57%

Overall?  What's wrong with overalls?  My daddy used to wear them while tilling the garden.

ngb530 - yes, "trouser snake" and "clits" are offensive. However, I can guarantee you that no one wants to hear about your "wayyyy too big" dick. Sounds like you're over-compensating. If you want to get laid, then find a hooker and tell her all about it.

Leggings are leggings, and genderless.  Why do people feel compelled to invent cutesy neologisms where perfectly good words exist?  Leggings are horrid in public in all circumstances and should be banished back to the dance studio where they belong.
The worst trend of forever is men wearing their pants sagging below their bums!  You don't look tough, you don't look cool and you certainly don't look good!  You look like a toddler with a poopy diaper.  Get over it.
