tshirts with a small picture on the front center
bike shorts, when not actually on the bicycle
those shirts that were printed with folds to leave white streaks in the fabric, looks like the fabric has stretched to the breaking point
I run in bike shorts with running shorts over them. Chaffing is a $&@&@$&&@&$$&&!!!!!


I've never seen a shirt like you're describing. It sounds horrible.

I agree with most everyone, except I don't mind Fedoras (don't own one myself).

So glad someone pointed out belts right below the bust. I hate that too, and the really high-up belt trend. I remember I saw an episode of Sex and the City and the main character had a completely bare midriff, with a belt right in the middle, about 2 inches below her bust. It was the oddest thing I'd ever seen - although I have yet to see that on anyone in real life.

I use bike shorts too...I think they're appropriate for any form of exercise. But not to wear to Walmart without a looser garment on top.

This is the kind of shirt I was trying to describe: Plum Away Embroidered Peasant Top | Plus Size Apparel | Avenue The white parts that don't have any dye look like some kind of stretch marks.

That's not at all flattering.

To be honest I don't really care what others around me wear. I don't have enough time to care or notice. I think to each their own and how they choose to dress is how they choose to dress, why should I care? As long as I like the way i look and the clothes that i'm wearing that's all I have time enough to care about. Seems kind of silly and pointless to worry about what others are wearing or not wearing, i'm not that picky or silly. As long as the people wearing the clothes are happy, then who am I to judge them and tell them not to wear it.

There's always a post like this one, and I say while I agree, this is a board to discuss fashion and beauty opinions. If we can't come on here and discuss what we like and what we don't like, then we don't have a board, do we? Now, if people are saying the person is a trashy bad person because they wear this or that, then yeah that's bad. But if you say you don't like a style, that is not "judgemental"; that is stating you don't like something, and engaging in an online conversation with others, discussing the style. I don't think anyone is going up to anyone and demanding they stop wearing what they are wearing. I don't think anyone genuinely cares or worries about it; they are just saying what they don't like. Since when do we all have to like everything, or it's being judgemental?

Geez, I notice it's like you can't have an opinion on anything these days without being accused of being judgemental and not minding your own business. It's called a discussion board. We have to be able to talk about something and have some sort of an opinion, or you might as well shut this place down, right? If you don't have time to notice, then why are you here reading and posting about it?

Toe rings are another one. I never got why people liked these. Things touching my toes like that bug me though.

You have got to be kidding.

Where, pray tell, was this? In a mental hospital?!

Ok well these aren't female don'ts these are more specific. These are my personal don'ts.

Pantyhose-never wear it. I hate it.
Sweatpants anywhere and yoga pants except at the gym
Obnoxious logos, actually almost any logo
Turtlenecks
Anything with stains (I love white tshirts but I throw them out after every couple of months)
Anything above a kitten heel. I have pretty feet I refuse to ruin them.
Belts over shirts.
Too much jewelry. I always wear a necklace that is a family heirloom which is substantial. So I don't wear big earrings and bracelets too.
Low rise or mom jeans.
Miniskirts or short shorts.
