As an aside, I personally don't care for the fashions in the article, besides the leggings. I'll admit I don't wear them as often these days; yet whenever I did, I paired them with a long tunic. I think the real problem with leggings is when they're worn as pants (which they aren't), as opposed as a coverup for tunics and shorter dresses (on flattering figures of course).
I am a leg man...and butts. It looks strange to a guy who always keeps his boots under his jeans. It's like metros wanting to get into the "country scene" and wear their cowboy boots with their pants tucked in.

I'd rather see their legs then cover them up. From what I hear those types of boots are very very expensive. They would look better in a pair of Justin's or Tony Lama's IMO.

ugg boots - Google Search
Which are cute on 10 year old girls, but not women. (Saw some at my daughter's elementary school)

I wear what I want regardless of what men will be attracted to. My body doesn't exist for their viewing pleasure and it really doesn't bother me if they can't see my legs, butt or boobs well enough.

That said, gladiator sandals are cute but I have an arch and can't really wear super flat shoes like that, otherwise they're pretty cute. I do wear Uggs when it's cold or just around the house. My feet get cold sometimes and I like to have some sort of tread when I'm walking around on the hardwood floors. During the summer I wear flip flops instead.

Harem pants are cute if you're suuuuuper thin, same with jumpsuits and overalls (dungarees?).

And I'm very very happily buying a tuxedo because I'm going to be the 'best man' in my best friends wedding next spring, so poo on them hating tuxedos

I wear what I like, not what men like. A lot of men don't get fashion because of a narrow sense of aesthetics. I can't be restricted by lack of imagination & dull tastes.

Ugg boots have been out for years (never liked them), so I don't get why people still talk about it. Do people really still wear them?
I've always had a liking for some of the gladiator sandles too.

I get what you mean, but their purpose is meant for places where skinny jeans and leggings are more common, since regular boots or booties work better with bootcut or flare jeans. In fact, they're far from country when paired with leggings and a tunic sweater, or tights with a short dress.

Do people really still use that term, I'm trying to remember when it first left my vocabulary. I still have some long ago terms I hold on to, but that one, (fondly,) takes me way back. I remember being measured for my first pair when I was in jr hs.

Now, enjoy the article

Ugg! The items of clothing that women think are fashionable but men hate | Mail Online

I had to look at all these links because I didn't know what any of them were.
I've never worn any of them (and don't care for how they look).
Except for when I was a kid & was *forced* to wear overalls (what you call dungarees here)-
but that ceased as soon as I was allowed to make my own sartorial choices (5th grade).

Oh wait, dungarees, was what I thought were like lee or levi regular jeans. We called those kind of in the pictures denim jumpers and I had one or two in my youth, wore them with deck type shoes like keds.

Yes, the word dungarees made me think denim pants/jeans,
but when I clicked on the link it was to overalls (at least that's what we call them here).
Are they called jumpers elsewhere ?
I hear UK tv shows refer to jumpers, but was unsure what was meant by that.
