(Newser) – You’ve probably already broken half of your New Year’s resolutions, but there’s still hope for you, young man, in this decade—if you follow StreetLevel’s list of dumbass trends to avoid:

  • Men wearing UGGs: The boots’ “gaudiness will never look anything but inappropriate on the gender that stands up to pee,” Paul Cantor writes.
  • Growing a hipster beard: “The late-'90s ‘fake it till you make it’ ethos needs to smack the hipster beard back into the 1970s porno it came from.”

  • Ditch the Ed Hardy gear: “Unless you’re an aspiring future cast member of MTV’s Jersey Shore.”
  • Leave Internet slang on the web: Because there’s “still something strangely odd, almost schoolgirl-ish, about a person saying OMG in the midst of a real-life conversation.”
