I think plenty of the latest fads are silly...history can tell us a lot, just look at the 80s

Gladiator sandals are sexy on women. Her feet will look even sexier and prettier if she's got fresh pedicured toes to go with the sandals.

Other than that, it's all individual preference. To each their own.
Pretty much this.

Right on!

As long as the person is comfortable and confident in what they are wearing, nobody should be making the wardrobe judgment calls.

I like to believe there is a time and a place for every dress. Appropriateness and public decency is very important to me.

I saw a MOTHER in one of those shirts with a million slits in it and I guess they wear a bra or something underneath. I believe she had short shorts and tats, too.

It completed the trashy trifecta

Thanks for sharing. The thread didn't call for a debate on the topic so you might have just refrained from the buzz-kill post, though

My style tends to be a little out there. I generally don't mind what anyone else wears, though seeing pubic hair sticking out the sides of swimsuit bottoms or bad plumbers crack makes me wish I hadn't been looking.

For myself, I avoid mom jeans and heels higher than 3 inches... I prefer a 2 inch heel or so if I'm opting for heels.

Someone was knocking the 80s... I think some of that style might be coming back... I rarely will wear a hat, I have a wool cowboy hat and good leather boots that I'll pair with a retro sheer button up top and a pair of skinny jeans. That would be for going to a rodeo or western style bar ... unless I'm just 'feelin it' that day.

I like those belts that sit under the bust... they look amazing on women who are thin waisted but larger in the bust and hip area.

The Funny Pictures at WalMart aren't funny, they're gross. People used to get arrested for indecent exposure...wish they still did!
I like seeing women in hats nowdays...especially how they put it on with their hair style...kinda like the gal at 1:52..how she parts the hair to one side...looks really nice....hats are a DO for me!

I don't like seeing things that aren't in style anymore. Seriously, hit the internet and learn the trends and buy something new, even if it's second hand and new to you. That's just my opinion and I just pity people, they can do whatever they want. At least it's entertaining.

leggings
Uggs
double shirts so the two hems show
bra straps of any kind
I'm sorry, but Crocs are dirty and gross, and I threw mine out after I sprained my ankle in them; they are dnagerous.
dirty clothes

I also to not want to see the ass of anyone. An inch longer will not kill you.

On older women (i.e. 45 plus) You really do not need to wear a "hair do" - i.e. a style that does not blow in the wind, is cut and permed and freeze sprayed until you have it "done" again.

That is SO AGING!

People who STILL wear 1980s clothes. The BIG HAIR. The high wasted jeans that are a light wash. NO.

Floral tops with pastel poly slacks and black low healed pumps. NO!

You are 51, not 97! Why?

OK, I'll calm down.
I'd rather date someone who dresses badly than someone who spells badly, but that's just me.
A dressing faux pas can be easily remedied.
Ignorance....not so much.
