By definition, trends are fleeting. They're ephemeral. And each day we see our fair share of looks we'd like to remove from our sartorial lexicon. So join us, each week, as we analyze a trend that's had its 15 minutes of fame. These looks are well into their Minute 16, folks. It's time to usher them toward stage left.

The Trend: Juxtaposing a winter toque with a pair of jorts (jean cut-offs) is sending people everywhere a mixed message: are you hot or are you cold? Toques are great for the winter (and are even recommended), but when the mercury in the thermometer rises, it's time to raise the hats off your head and toss them in a sturdy storage box.

Chief Offenders: Remember Justin Bobby of 'The Hills' fame? This was his favourite look. And he always seemed a little out of place walking L.A. streets covering his mop in a heatwave. Do you really want to take a style lesson from someone so confused? Probably not.

What's Wrong With It: We understand a hat in the summer is part of a certain "look," but it's essential you let your head breathe -- we lose 80 per cent of our body heat through our heads (wear a toque and you're liable to get heat stroke -- or melt into a puddle). Not only that, this look is sartorially strange.

May We Suggest: A sun hat or maybe even a retro snapback is a better look for summer. Either option will keep messy hair out of the public eye, but will also show you have some sort of idea of what the weather is like.

What do you think? Are we just plain wrong about this trend? Let us know in the comments below or on Twitter @HuffPostCaStyle.
