    We’ve all tried fashion trends that haven’t always been that well received. My checked pyjama style outfit of summer 2014 still gets referred to ‘your prisoner’ outfit by my other half. RIP Topshop co-ord.

    But where certain sartorial choices are just a matter of taste, it turns out there are certain items that really are a complete no go, and all Brits agree, according to a YouGov survey.

    Over 3,000 people were questioned about their most hated items of clothing, and the number one spot is a swimwear staple made famous by David Beckham. That’s right, even celebs aren’t immune, even if David did just about get away with it.

    I’m referring to Speedos of course, and it turns out the tight swimwear, isn’t the only crime against fashion you could commit. Other dislikes include Ugg boots (another celebrity favourite, championed by Britney and Paris Hilton), Crocs and, randomly, clothes with elbow patches.

    Controversially, certain that don’t really deserve to be there made the list. Like flares, which are so in at the moment. And berets. What’s wrong with a beret?

    Here’s the full list below…
