bright neon bras under a white shirt. ugh! no one really needs to see your bra. I go to great lengths trying to cover my straps or finding the perfect nude bra. I DO NOT WANT TO SEE YOURS

Agree with pretty much everything!!

I feel like such a nanna sometimes when I go to the shops. I’m always horrified by what people wear.

Is pre-teens dressing like hookers a fad? God I hope it dies out! No one wants to see your pre-teen boobs and arse! Put it away!!

Too much make up too. Especially when the wearer is too young or old. Always remember what my mum says about people hanging onto their youth – ‘Mutton dressed up as lamb’!

Definitely jeggings/leggings as pants, because even my Fiance goes on tirades about “jeggings” (he refers to all non-pants-as-pants as “jeggings”) and points them out when he sees them in the street.

When a straight guy ridicules a trend that’s trying to be “accidentally sexy wink-wink”, I’m pretty sure that means it has totally bombed.

@Treejewel19:  I generally can’t stand this look (I have seen a guy waddle nervously to the bathroom at the mall because the pants were clearly on their way to going all the way down), but I will make an exception for those two Wink

This could be showing my age, but what’s with all the young kids on FB posting pics of themselves doing a funny mouth-big eye confused look, always it seems when wearing thick foundation aaaaaaaall over their faces – including lips and lots of eyeliner and too much clumpy mascara and all their hair parted to one side.

Also NOT a fan of these new onepieces – generally adult babygrows.  wrong.  Just Wrong!!!

I hate how short dresses and skirts are these days…..I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve seen peoples butts and lady bits!!!!!

What bothers me more is that so many ladies wear the tiniest pants(or none at all) underneath these very short dresses and skirts!!!! personally I’d prefer to wear big granny pants and risk a VPL than  have an accidental flash of my butt cheeks!!!

I also hate the tight feminine skinny leg pants all the young boys are wearing these days!!! I took my 90 year old grandma out into the city the other day…..she noticed the pants too….she was quite scandalised and said to me

Its disgusting I can see the outline of their meat and two veg!!!!

hehehe…I had to agree with herLaughing

@Treejewel19:  Sheer anything is annoying…how am I supposed to wear that?!  Hmph!

I dislike colored jeans…and seems like it’s all they’re carrying at Target this year.  If I didn’t have to work ever (we can wear nice jeans to work) I might buy a pair for fun.

I also dislike maxi anything.  They cling so badly as people walk.  I don’t think people realize the front view so much…it’s distracting to see someone’s dress stuck up their…you know 🙂

I don’t like all the sheer panels in cocktail dresses lately (BCBG, Mango are major offenders), those would only look good on someone who is neither pale nor dark-skinned and has a perfect figure.

Also hating on the shorts + tights look. I wore it in 1990 as a kid and it wasn’t cute then either. There are also some major body-type denial issues with this look: 1) if the hem of the shorts is not flat (i.e. it rides up your ass) then you have shorts that are poorly made or don’t fit, and (2) if you are a normal human being whose thighs touch when standing with feet hip-width apart you should not wear bold patterns on tights.

Things I thought I would hate, but don’t: leg warmers. I live in a cold climate, and I LOVE wearing a tunic or dress over leggings with shorter boots and leg warmers (and a coat, obviously). So cozy, and easy to take off layers if it warms up.

I know I posted on this 3 months ago but I have to add skinny jeans and shorts where they are so short the pockets hang out. I just cant stand them!! I also hate most of the new rave trends… as I know most of the people on here are not ravers you probably wouldn’t know what I’m talking about but people don’t dress for raves like they did when I first started going out… Girls basically ONLY wear underwear, tape, paint or lingerie out now and I can’t even figure out how they are comfortable to dance in that without fearing something falling out! It’s usually really young girls too! This does not look good in the club and it looks even worse walking down the street when you leave.

I love leggings, but I will not wear them unless my top comes to like mid-thigh…at least! I don’t get wearing them with t-shirts!

I don’t understand the mustache ‘thing’. Mustaches on women’s necklaces, connected to sunglasses, stuck on a stick. I just don’t get it. But, then again, I’m old.
