7 Incomprehensible Fashion Trends

April 10, 2013

I generally don’t like people. They’re weird. They do creepy things. And I don’t understand them.  Like a lot of fashion-y things– nope, just no idea. What even.

1.  Mullet skirts. Party in the front, business in the back? More like slutty in the front, wannabe superhero in the back.

Well I guess there is an obvious plus I overlooked: easier to tie your shoe!

2.  “Bralettes” as shirts. In my experience, bras should not be worn in public sans real shirt. (Except for swim suits, because that totally makes sense!)

Maybe it's just a super-skinny boobless girl thing...

3.  High heel tennis shoes. High heels or tennis shoes? HIGH HEELS OR TENNIS SHOES???


4.  Thigh high boots. It looks like she’s about to wade through a slimy pond. I can see no other purpose for that tall of boots. Might as well not even wear pants.

Got some fly fishin' to do.

5.  Frat shorts. And these are short shorts, too short for dudes…  I’ve never understood why guys in fraternities love to dress in pastel colors and weird things like that. Or boat shoes. Every one of the frat guys at my school owns a pair of boat shoes. This is a landlocked state, no boats.

How cute

How cute.

6. Ombre hair. Did you mean to look like you slowly lifted your hair out of a bucket of bleach? Or was that just a happy coincidence?


7.  Whatever the hell this is. Not even the worst picture there is of her, obviously.

Just what, even.

Just what, even.

Ugh, people.

    Ha ha! Where have you only found those monstrosities? The girl in boots looks like she’s too short for them.. Or maybe it’s 2-in-1 Boots & Stockings? :))

    “More like slutty in the front, wannabe superhero in the back.” Bwahahahaha! You should see what haute couture is turning out these days in the name of “fahsion” at Petty Grievances. Flattering, chic, pretty and aesthetically pleasing seem to be a thing of the past….

    Thank God we don’t have fraternities in France, that’s one less horror! (We have all of the others too, though)

    Isn’t wading thru a slimey pond on the Kardashian coat of arms? It should be…

    You are so right.

    Loved the way you captured the mullet skirt with inventive language!
    I want to know why people get tattoos and then wear colors that clash with their colored tattoos. So ugly.

    Hahaha. Yes. This exactly. The thigh high boots are a dominatrix thing. They look hot on women that can rock the rest of the ensemble (i.e. everything leather + whip) but pretty crap on anyone else (that’s not rockin’ em as part of a superhero costume). As cosplay they are hilarious, particularly the white ones and more so when done by men. Cheers for the laughs.

    Oh oh! Can I add some?? LOL
    1) Tights worn as pants…. and JEGGINGS *barf*
    2) socks with sandals
    Fashion is a loose term for some people, isn’t it? LOL

    I agree with most, but not with 5 and 6. 5 because I think well-toned guys look great in those shorts (and my DH is tall and wide, not toned, and all the shorts that fit him go just below his knees and catch on his knees when he walks. I know…). 6 because I happen to like most of it except that the top is too dark (whatev, my opinion).

    BTW, I think socks with sandals only works if you look like an actual old hippie and wear birkies and long skirts and it’s winter (the kind with snow, not the kind of winter we get here in FL).

So, what do you think?
