I have to admit that I have two pair of roman sandals that I love to wear with my dresses and shorts in the summer. I also own skinny jeans. As a big girl, I thought I would look horrible in them, but I like them with boots. I also own a pair of colored skinny jeans. I also like nude heels. And Toms. They really are comfy and I’m on my feet all day in clincials so I love them. 

I don’t understand the leggings as pants trend that’s still going on. Also not a fan of all the sheer and shapeless tops. It may look ok on a someone who is thin, but on someone who’s plus sized, it just makes me look bigger. I need something with structure that doesn’t require me to purchase three other shirts so I will be covered. I also don’t understand why all heels are now like, 5 inches high. I need a good pair of heels, but every pair I find is entirely too high.

Haha, I posted on this thread a few months ago to complain about leggings as pants, top knots, and mullet dresses.

Now that I’ve been browsing Etsy a lot lately, I’ve noticed that above-the-knuckle rings seem to be a trend. I really don’t get these. How do they stay on? They just look like rings that are too small.

Most of mine have already been stated, but I’ll reiterate them: 

Ombre hair… if it’s very, very subtle I can dig it, but most of the styles I see are just… 80s looking to me. 

Maxi dresses… I just don’t think they flatter most people who wear them. If you’re a very thin girl, it could work, but add a little weight to your figure and they look a little muumuu-esque. 

Leggings as pants… I work at a college and a good 70% of the girls I see on a daily basis are wearing leggings. If we just met and I can see the exact outline of your butcrack through your pants, we’ve reached a relationship level I’m uncomfortable with.

The weird, purposely “vintage” outfits women have been putting together lately. It all reminds me of what Carrie Bradshaw circa 1998. Ugh.

Skinny leather pants. No. I just don’t understand it. How do you get them on? What is sexy about wiggling into them, everyone knows how long it took and how gross it’ll be when they come off!

Lady Gaga-esque hair/clothes. You are not on stage making a fashion “stance” infront of millions, you are sitting on the bus next to a drunk homeless man. 

The braid explosion. Sure, braids are nice, but do we really need 10,000 different styles of braids? If I’m not at a hair show, I don’t want to be seeing something like this VVVV

I hate black or near black nailpolish.

I don’t think it looks good on anyone.

I love skinny jeans on women but i hate really skinny jeans on men.  If i can see your balls, you should not be wearing it.  Also neon bras under see thru tops.  And most hipster things like put a bird on in it haha

@Mrs.babycat:  I agree, a real man does NOT wear skinny jeans, sorry just grosses me out. 

Ombre hair

 

I do love leggings….with the appropriate length shirt/tunic/sweater.  If you can see your butt…go back inside and change cause you are not wearing pants sweetie.

I will defend my uggs. They’re not a fad in Australia. They were here for 30+ years before someone patented them overseas and turned them into a trend. You wear them with shorts because if you’re a surf life-saver or competitive swimmer, they’re great for keeping your feet warm in winter/early mornings/late nights when you’re not in the water.

But then, I also like leggings, bright colours, and though I was resistent at first, some of those potato-sack tops look great over my skinny jeans. So I guess I’m just a no-hoper all around. 🙂 I’m 6′. Most dresses that’re supposed to be just-above-knee-length are too short for my comfort level. Solution? Leggings! Leggings everywhere!

Things I don’t understand?

Those shorts up above that’re so short there’s cheek showing.

Bralettes and bustiers being worn as stand-alone tops. I don’t get it. They kind of look like underwear.

Leggings with patterns, especially these new styles of lycra-ish leggings I’ve seen around with patterns that look like space nebulae splattered all over them. I’m sure someone could pull it off if they styled it right? I just can’t imagine how they’d do it.

Meh, I’m alright with most fads since I don’t care enough to wear them. However, they do confuse me. The biggest wtf’s for me are:

> Guys having more clothes than me. I’m not old, but I guess I am old fashioned. I like my men to be MEN for goodness sakes. I want their jeans to come up to their waists like God intended and for them to be a little clueless in terms of fashion. Throw on a button up shirt and be done with it already. Also goes for the male hair trends. If you need more time in the bathroom than I do primping, I’m going to make a point to remind you to take your bc pill while you’re in there.

> Little girls dressing like freaking hookers. I don’t get this at all. AT. ALL. I want to walk up to their mothers and slap them whenever I see this. Maybe I just don’t understand because I’m not a mom, but come on. I don’t see what I need to understand here. Little girls. Hookers. NO.

I don’t care if people are trying to make statements or whatever. That’s fine, and rock out with your bad self. HOWEVER I don’t understand why that statement is usually, “I’M A HOOKER!” these days. Plus, there’s being confident about your body, which is sexy and awesome, then there’s being so confident that you think having your butt hanging down or your underwear showing is more attractive that it actually is. I don’t care how hot you are. Butt cleavage is not sexy. Ever. On anyone. You look like you’re shooting a damn porno movie. If you feel the need to show off your bits and pieces to the world to get attention and feel attractive, well, I’m really sorry for you. 

Rant over. Thank you OP!

I have to say I didnt realise there were fads and trends in america- I go every year through out the year to visit family and it’s always the same tight jeans tight tops (not complaining, it’s the only time I can get cheap fitted jeans that dont loose shape)

 

My only problem with fashion is when fat people wear it, it usually isn’t designed to flatter them and the result is to much jiggliness on show.

Kind of not a fan of the body shaming going on around here. Dressing for your body type is certainly A Good Thing but I do my best to dislike clothing trends regardless of the body occupying them.

I think skinny jeans are ok for other people (though I only like them when paired with heels) but I won’t wear them, they just don’t flatter me. (Which stinks because they’re basically the ONLY jeans I can easily find here)

I looooove doing the one nail different manicure! Or doing wacky patterns! I have a slightly weird sense of style though. 

I just wish dresses and shirts were more fitted right now, I look absurd in anything that doesn’t show my waist, since my hip/butt area is so big. If you can’t see my smaller waist I look huge! Empire waists and those potato sack dresses are nooooot for me. 

I actually didn’t know ombre hair was a thing, I thought it was just roots growing out? 

In general though the only fashion thing I actually judge other people for was what This Time Round said — purpose specific clothes (yoga pants, ugg boots, bike shorts, etc.) being worn for other purposes.

@Regina Phalange:  Whoa, weird. I would totally have assumed the model’s hands were just too big for the rings she was showing/selling.

That’s what Fiance looks like when he tries to put my engagement ring on his pinky finger, lol!
