Clothing fads you will be very HAPPY to see go away
For me it's the following....

Hip hugger jeans...very few people actually look good in these
Too small shirts that show too much skin
Sagging pants

17. I think this makes girls look trashy. They are just asking
people to stare at their butts. What I don't understand is when parents buy pants with words across the butt for their very little girls (I'm talking six and seven years of age). Why on earth would you purchase something that encourages people of all ages to look at your little girl's rear end?

GAWD--no taste whatsoever.

4. Exposed butt cracks
Edited on Mon May-23-05 05:28 PM by slackmaster
Nothing puts me off more than seeing a 300-pound man with his pants about 8 inches lower than they ought to be.

That's a guy who refuses to admit that he has a gut and needs bigger pants.

11. One thing worse
Those same baseball caps on middle-aged men who - this is just a guess on my part - honestly believe one of two things:

1. they look really cool, or

2. people will think they really have hair under the cap when, in fact, they don't.

18. Fish belly scalp.
My friend has worn a toupee for many years. It looked like shit. Everybody knew it was a rug.

After he retired he came for a visit. Walked in with a baseball cap on. After we'd settled down in the den he said "Guess what? After I retired all my hair fell out." and whipped off the cap.

Picture a normally sun tanned face with a fish belly white scalp.

I told him he needed to get out in the sun a little without the rug or the cap.

8. Skintight shirts on girls
When did it become mandatory to make sure I had to watch the rippling rolls of fat under and above your bra?

Some things just shouldn't be, and I am so tired of seeing females in tops that look to be five sizes too small.

12. Hip huggers!
God, no one looks good in those. Even if you weigh 100 lbs. soaking wet, there is always the love handle problem. So unattractive. On the same topic, but a bit of a digression, I was looking for new pants. Grabbed a pair of brown khakis in my size (large, very large... heee), went to try them on... hip huggers! Now who on this whole planet thought it was a good idea for a "full-figured" woman to wear hip huggers? The mind boggles.

15. I totally understand CS....that is why I have been relegated
to buying men's pants for the most part. Lane Bryant here in St Louis appears to cater to the teen crowd...I am a FIRM believer that just because they make it in your size does not mean it needs to be on your body.

Then again I like the preppy style down to the Sperry topsiders. Call me retro

bigger than many of the skirts I find. Has the clothing industry forgotten that not all women are under the age of 18?

16. What's worse is that even missy and women's styles are all below
the waist now. Not to mention the shirts are all about an inch shorter than they used to be. I prefer to wear my blouses tucked, but I can't find blouses long enough to reach the damnable low slung pants.

ARRRGH!

59. Good Luck finding a regular pair of jeans these days.
Everywhere you go, that's all stores seem to carry all the way up to size 20+.

That's mind-boggling in itself. And have you noticed, they'll fit in the waist, but the legs are way too big, or vice versa.

64. whats up with guys shaving their heads anyway?
Why would anyone shave their beautiful hair off, when I'm sure there are guys that are balding that would kill to have a full head of hair? My hub has beautiful long curly hair and I LOVE LOVE it!! The only time I think it looks okay to shave is if a guy is like half losing his hair and has that ring around the head..then I think its better to just shave it all off..then it looks good.

your thong shows. EEEEEEEK! I saw a bartender (female) wear this and I almost spit up my Sam Adams when she bent over in front of me. My hubby swears he didn't notice the display. I don't believe him.

It was mindnumbingly trashy.

One is "Orange County Choppers." The other is "West Coast Choppers."

Get one of those damn things, ride it for a week and you'll be ready to chop the extended forks and ape-hanger handlebars off it.

44. Believe it or not, it's prison fashion adopted by rappers.
In prison, they take away your belt (and your shoe laces) and so your pants tend to fall off your hips.

That are a size or three too small, and all low on the hips, so that even relatively thin women have some amount of 'hip roll'...wear 'em a size bigger or an inch or two higher, and they'd look nice. Like that, just... ick.

43. i agree
i might be one of the few here who do like the low rise jeans. but as you say they don't look right on anyone if it doesn't fit them and many girls do buy the smallest size they can get themselves into even if it doesn't really fit them right.

i always make sure to buy ones that leave a little room since i know things such as drinking lots of water or a meal will show on anyone.and the pants should be comfortable and fit even in those times.

40. Those were pretty hideous times for fashion that's
for sure. I look at my school pictures and wonder why on earth my mom bought those clothes.

I think it's my fifth grade pic where I am wearing a pull over vest with LARGE multicolored dots and a purple shirt. There was also a cloth belt and a metal belt buckle on the shirt.


FRIGHTENING I tell you...absolutely FRIGHTENING!

Don't even know if they are called "shorts" worn by guys. They are big, hugely baggy and end somewhare mid-calf. They look like gauchos ro culottes and most guys who wear them look hideous.

60. 100% synthetic clothes
Edited on Mon May-23-05 08:16 PM by Lurking_Argyle
The worst material for clothing--hot in summer, cold in winter, clings to sweaty skin. Uncomfortable to wear, and it didn't look that great. Most have to be dry-cleaned. The silver lining--wrinkles didn't stay long.

Synthetics are bad! :thumbsdown:

higher priced stores/labels. What's with that? They look cheap regardless of the price. I really have to search to find wool/linen/silk suits anymore.

I hate wearing them because when I sit down, they fall off my ass, and my shirt rides up my back!! I'm sick of constantly having to pull my shirts down when I wear them!! I remember "back in the day" at least you could wear a body suit with your hip huggers and not worry about your butt and tummy sticking out!

65. those super short ruffled skirts
NO ONE should wear those skirts--ever. Period. The End. Young, old, tall, short, thin, medium, heavy, whatever--they are the most hideous things I've ever seen and I wish they would go away.

75. If they are comfortable with it...
Then more power to them! It's all about how comfortable people are in their own skin! What looks "too small" to you might look just right to the next person. Or feel just right to them.

84. Can you tell the difference
between "bad fashion trend" and "personal fashion decision"? I think most people on this thread dislike the bad fashion trends *no matter who* wears them. A supermodel wearing Ugg boots is still wearing ugly-ass boots, no matter what she looks like.

You have been measured
And you have been found wanting. Begone from this place.

77. Stupid low-cut jeans with thongs sticking out
That whole bare-midriff look, where the thong's sticking out of really low-cut jeans and the shirt looks outgrown, and the person usually has a tattoo in the small of their back...Yeah, that whole look just has to go. :puke: I do not want to see people's underwear sticking out of their pants!

78. Self-aggrandizing t-shirt slogans
Like "I'm a heartbreaker", or "You wish you could", or "Staring won't make me like you". They're rude and insulting.

81. "Baby" tees are even worse
You know, those tee shirts that look like they're for a young child and often feature Strawberry Shortcake and stuff like that, and they're five sizes too small. Grown women dressing like little kids grosses me out. What kind of creepy guy are they trying to attract?!

87. ugh..
I've seen girls wear Uggs with ubershort shorts that barely cover their ass then a top that looks like it was bought at Fredricks of Hollywood. I am usually not the most conservative when it comes to clothing styles, but a lot of the girls I see at clubs around town look like hookers. I'm sorry, but their (lack of) clothing just screams "im easy". I sware they will wear the most disgusting things just to get guys attention.
What do you guys think about Crocs?? My boyfriend thinks they are hideous, but they ARE really comfortable. (unlike Uggs)

82. I hear there are still stirrup pants wandering around in flats.
I don't make it out to the gated communities too much, I guess.
