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...

  • Speedos
  • Leather trousers
  • Crocs
  • Flares
  • Clothes with elbow patches
  • Tracksuit Red trousers
  • Uggs
  • Jumpsuits
  • Deep v-neck t-shirts
  • Sweater vests
  • Berets
  • Ponchos

Penny Goldstone is the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire, covering everything from catwalk trends to royal fashion and the latest high street and Instagram must-haves.

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
