Tacky. But then, I'm anti-tanning altogether, which is a shame because I love soaking up the sun.

Are you even capable to taking on color?

I would say it depends on the amount of contrast and level of blending. Looking at my forearm for example, the bottom of it is pasty, but the exposed side is fairly tan. The transition from tan to pasty has a natural appearance. Now if you've been out in a bathing suit lounging by the pool all summer, yuck! So if you do tan, tan it all, otherwise, spend less time in the sun/in a tanning bed.

Hate them. The worst is when they are paired with a formal dress. I think you should rotate suits or stick to things that don't show the line in general. I also think its hilarious to be nude with tan lines. It just looks so off compared to all over even color. Pale or tan.

Farmer tan - Also a bad one

Definitely makes it worse when you look high contrast!

Red is a color.

Ombré tan lines just look kind of dirty to me. Like you've been up to your elbows in dirt that won't quite wash off so it's lightly dyed your skin a darker shade. Of course you can only avoid the sun so much and most people will have lighter and darker parts of their skin, but it's not a look I think anyone should strive for.

Used to have a thong tan line. Now I tan bucked naked. I've never been a fan of the upper tan lines for off shoulder shirts, etc
