@MayaBean:  I. Am. Dying. Best quote of the night! 

I love my sweatpants but I won’t wear them outside the house unless I’m grocery shopping/running errands. Leggings, only with a longer shirt to cover all the goods. Top knots can be cute if done right.. I think if they’re wrapped too tightly it just looks weird.

The 5x too big t-shirts with running shorts and moses sandals drive me insane. I’ve never seen this until I moved to a college town. It’s like the campus uniform or something– pretty sure it’s a sorority thing.

@eeniebeans:  LOL I’m with you.  We just ran to Fred Meyer and I was wearing bright red sweats, a giant parka from pg 1 of this thread and hard soled slippers.  It’s the freaking grocery store haha…who cares?!

I don’t know wy people keep saying that leggings aren’t pants.  Are people confusing leggings with tights or something?  Yes, the ones that are basically thick nylons (with the feet and everything) are not pants.  But the ones that are basically long tight yoga pants – umm, those are pants guys.

Now if you’re going to complain about people wearing them withouth developing the appropriate body, that’s different.

Add me to the long list of bees who hate leggings as pants.  They are never as opaque as people think they are, and even if they are 100% opaque, it’s still Too Much Information.  You can have the nicest butt in the world and I still don’t want to see it encased in spandex.  Cover your bum!

@cbgg:  The problem is 95% don’t have the appropriate body, regardless of size. You need fAntarctic muscle tone to carry these off. Pity most realise this!

I absolutely do not understand all the hate over Ugg boots. They are hands down THE most comfortable boots I have ever owned. I never had any reason to play into the trend of them when they exploded all over Hollywood. I lived in Texas where there’s only one season – Summer. But since moving to a cold climate, they have been my best friends. I happen to think the ones I have are cute as well.

I do agree that top knots generally aren’t flattering. Neither are sweatpants out of the house. I’m not a fan at all of cut off tops with high waisted, ripped denim shorts. I can’t stand those Frankenstein shoes (pic below). And I don’t like those see-through shirts with just a bra underneath. I don’t mind them if the person wears a cami underneath.

@soontobebe: I actually like Ugg boots. They are so comfortable in cold weather. Just couldnt imagine wearing tthem out to a bar etc. And definitely not with sweatpants. That is quite popular here.

I don’t mind most fashion trends. Figuring if I don’t like it don’t look, but lately I have had second thoughts on that. What is it with mixing patterns and layering different neon colors?!? And it’s not just the people where I live, saw it in magazines and runway pics. God what the heck? And the fake nails that are like 3 inches long. HOW DO THEY WIPE? Or take out contacts or do the dishes/clean or cook or type? I can barely manage when my real nails grow longer. 

And men’s clothes… If I can see crack because your waistband is around your knees it’s time to start thinking about a belt… Or if they are sooo tight I can see your gonads it is time to buy a size bigger. I almost stopped a guy on the street yesterday to give him money to buy new pants…. They were waaaay to tight and sagging past his behind. 

Anyway it’s just my opinion. More power to ya if you like these trends, they are just not for me.

i think if people dress appropritely for their body shape and age then there isnt really a problem. If everybody liked the same clothes the fashion industry would be null and void.

Pesonally i look ridiculous in sweats and hoodies just doesnt suit my build or face shape etc, yet i have seen women who look great in sweats. I wish i could just get up in the morning and throw on some sweats, throw my hair back and look ok.

My everyday clothes consist generally of skinny jeans with low heeled boots worn OVER them  with a long line top. i always colour coordinate with a colour inbetween. ie black boots, burgandy jeans, black top burgandy necklace.

IMO
