Trends come and go throughout the years; some leave a lasting impression that seem to translate and continue on into the next year, while others exit the year in a fiery blaze. Why? Perhaps it's because people come to their senses, realizing the errors of their ways.
A more pertinent question is why something becomes a trend in the first place? It's hard to imagine trends taking shape in a a media-less world. Or rather social media-less. With social media sites like Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and Snap Chat, a simple idea - whether it's a catchphrase or the start of clothing line - can evolve into a trend within minutes.
But it takes more than just social media sites. To push a trend onto the proverbial map, you need a face. The more recognizable that face, the better. Now that's not to say you need a celebrity to start a trend. But it just so happens that many of today's trends have either been created by famous or wealthy people, or at the very least promoted by celebrities.
This year saw many different trends - from the phrase "bae", man buns, and Kylie Jenner lips, to more sinister things like Donald Trump. Some of the most ridiculous trends of 2015 will likely scar us for life and leave us hoping and praying that they all become a thing of the past.
9 Man Buns
8 Kylie Jenner Lip Challenge
7 The Ovipositor Sex Toy
6 Kanye West's Clothing Line
The above photo is not Kanye West standing with models depicting conditions within a concentration camp; it is not a photo of Kanye West standing with extras on the set of The Walking Dead; that photo, my friends, is Kanye West standing with an array of models during New York Fashion Week, all wearing pieces from his "Yeezy" collection. Not one single piece of clothing is reasonably-priced and not one single piece of clothing looks as though it wasn't previously worn by a homeless person.

1 Donald Trump: The Biggest Fool in America
I don't want to travel out of the country this year because I would be ashamed to say that I'm from America. It's not because of our massive unemployment rate, the suffocating amount of student debt loans, or our ever-crumbling economy... it's because of that orange man in the photo above. Donald Trump has given Americans even more reason to be disgusted with our country. I understand that it's the right of any American to choose to run for President if they meet all of the criteria... but, really? If a celebrity was going to run for office, I would've much rather it have been Oprah or Bryan Cranston. I can't wait for him to fade into oblivion.
