4 Fashion Trends I Don't Understand



1. The Denim G-String aka denim-shorts-with-pockets-sticking-out-the-bottom:
Did you gynaecologist call and want you to wear the most revealing item of clothing for easy access? No? Well talk to me about why we are on the brink of viewing your lady garden. And PS - your derriere? Well I wasn't planning on seeing your cheeks either. Clearly you've never noted the premise: choose one thing to reveal. Cleavage or legs, but never lady garden, thighs, calves - oh and your ass. 


2. Faux Leather Pants:
You'd better stock up on Canestan if you're intending on wearing these. Perhaps think about investing in shares. Because you are going to absolutely need oodles of it.


3. High waisted shorts. Coupled with...Gulp.. A midriff:


Unless you're prepping for SummerNats, I don't think this is a wise fashion choice. You are going to look back in years to come and rue the day you decided to basically show up in this gynaelogical nightmare. It's like a front-ward wedgie. With a slice of abdomen to throw you off.  

 4. Ugly Shoes:
If you've injured your ankle - fair enough, but perhaps try wearing one of those ski boot things instead of attempting to merge fashionable footwear with orthapedic practicalities. It's like a small creature has attached itself to your ankle. It's sucking your blood - and my will to live.


What fashion trends do you not understand?

showing of the bra straps what ever the top - just don't work for me...

ha ha ... ugly shoes. They rock when you see birds that can't walk in them - double whammy.

Fluro was a mistake in the eighties. No need to repeat it now. And if they bring back hypercolour anything, I will join a nudist colony

These are baad!
Please don't bring back pastel parachute pants.

I guess a lot of my dislikes are personal- I know they just won't work on me.

working on a University campus I do get to see a lot of trendy clothes. Boys I find more disturbing, why do their jeans have to hang down between their legs like they're wearing a nappy? Why do they team them with canvas sneakers (the cheap looking ones) they all look vaguely effeminate!

The mullet skirt. Can't even find words......

I second the mullet skirt. Plus jeggings and gladiator sandals.

Averil said...

I third the mullet skirt too. Hate.It.
I also hate the denim "undies" that the youngins are wearing these days, no matter what size they are. I'm all for body confidence, but I personally don't like showing my cellulite off to everyone in the street!

Gladiator sandals and over sized shoulder pads that make anyone look like an American footballer.

Emily Orpin said...

YES to your four (especially mid-rif tops - the % of the population that could actually pull them off in some vague way must be tiny compared to the number being produced and sold), plus YES to the mullet skirt and gladiator sandals (they are so incredible unflattering).

I'd add harem pants (though I admit some people can look suave and stylish in them, I have no idea how...).

ps. I kinda love fluro. Don't judge.

gret said...

bahaha! What a great post, and I agree wholeheartedly. :)

Luna said...

The first one, I saw it last week and it was COLD! Why?

The last one, is in a magazine I borrowed this week and now I won't try it.

Has anyone seen the guys/men wearing the red+white candy striped shorts? I kid you not. Seeing it on guys in their teens-early 20's is one thing, a man in his 30's? Come on.

librarygirl said...

except for the last photo, all those clothes/shoes look like good outfits for - er - ladies of the night...

Mrs Sabbatical said...

Where are the harem (or poo catching) pants?

Please don't choose one of these for Fash Fest Friday!

Mon Alisa Design said...

Gawd you make me laugh girly! x

Flotsam Friends said...

I'm totally with you! Those g-string shorts are unbelievable. I saw a girl wearing them in the city?! What was she thinking!!! Pru
