The one thing that DOES annoy me is is the baggy-pants sagging down under the underwear. I really do NOT want to see your underwear. Ever. It borders on disrespectful to society as far as I am concerned.

Even more so when the pants are actually close to the knees, and you have to hold them in one hand to keep them from slipping to the ankles. Just ridiculous, and you can't even walk normally.
lol, I haven't seen that trend in a while. That went out in like 2007 (at least here in New York State). You'll get laughed at for lookin like that even in the hood. Though maybe that's still the style in locations that are slow with the times..

However, now the trend is sagging skinny jeans...which I don't know is better or worse, lol!

Those are definitely NOT a trend. Flip flops have been around for many, actually THOUSANDS of years. I don't think they are going anywhere.

I was in NYC less than a year ago. I assure you the trend is still very much alive, there and elsewhere.

Here's a nearby town that just enacted a law against it.

Here's an idiot that got foiled in a robbery attempt because of his sagging pants.

It's not laughed at in the 'hood. You might WISH it was, but it ain't.

Flip flops worn EVERYWHERE ARE a trend, people would never have worn them to work, weddings, etc. like they do now.

That's true for every trend. People don't actually invent new clothing styles very often -- things that are unusual, or that are only common in a specific domain, just become common everywhere. Then they are a trend.

For example, Carhartt's pants. Are those a fashion where y'all live? Here in the PNW they have been a huge thing for the past 10 years or so, but maybe only with anarchists. Previously, they were a specialty item you had to buy in supply stores that sold to loggers. Now people are doing stuff like cutting them up and making them into miniskirts. Complete with ruffle .

Flipflops used to be mainly swimwear, and for wearing in skeezy showers to prevent catching fungi. They weren't something you would see people wearing at the grocery store -- unless they were on their way to the lake, and wearing bathing suits with shorts on top.

Well if it were a magic wand ,it would also be a fantasy world , in which case I'd eliminate clothing altogether. And people would not be putting up false fronts trying to look like some thing they are not. There would be no more peek a boo , nor porn, cause no one would care. False modisty doesn't become any one. Half the reason men are tantelized with sex is fashon, peek a boo. I can prove it , Put on one glove , and folk will be wanting to see why you are hiding your hand.

The trend I hate that's been around way too long is low-rise pants -- yes, formerly hip-huggers! They're uncomfortable and very unflattering to anyone with a flat butt.

Flip-flops are my savior. I have a bunion that makes closed-toe shoes, and heels, uncomfortable. I remember the first time I saw flip-flops being worn with a dress at a formal occasion. It was when Bush II was President, and some sports team of young girls posed for a pic with him at the White House. One girl sent the pic to her brother, expecting him to be duly impressed, and his first comment to her was, "you wore FLIP-FLOPS to the White House???". LOL! That's when I realized flip-flops were becoming dressier and more mainstream. Been wearing them ever since.

Most women can avoid muffin top by picking a pant with a higher or lower rise (or a larger size, or tailoring)
