Daisy Dukes, c00chie cutters or whatever they call them in your neck of the woods. Every 10 years or so these denim yeast infections become popular. I'll admit to wearing them in college where my parents couldn't see me so guilty. Here's a stop tick. Buy shares of Monistat. It's gonna soar this summer.

Clothes that don't fit. Too big or too small. That's the #1 problem with women's clothing. Most of it does not fit or flatter the wearer. #2 problem is the wearer doesn't care.
Yesss to all these!

My pet peeve is badly/weirdly cut clothing. Like the stuff that seems to be made for 5'10 women only (I like Zara but they have that issue), or gigantic arm holes, or pants not made for women with an actual waist-hip difference. Another thing I hate are dresses with those elastic waistbands that cut right across the torso, and make everyone look wider and/or pregnant, and so many dresses seem to have that.

Also, cheap embellishments/rhinestones, esp ones that fall off easily, badly sewn on buttons that fall off the first time you wear something, clothing that gets horribly stretched out and shapeless in a few wears...

For myself, I don't like any kind of added "bling" -- even simple T-shirts with sequins or beads sewn on get a pass. I just like them plain.

What I've seen for sale lately is insanely thin (cheap?) T-shirts that look like they'd fall apart in the washer.

What I hate are tiny pockets, or fake pockets. If I can't put my whole hand in, it's not big enough.

I agree with most of your dislikes.

I'll add PRICE! My goodness, I was in Sears earlier this evening and even with the sales, plain cotton blend polo shirts were still running around $13, which was down from $19, but still . . .

I'm also not thrilled with the huge scoop and plunging necklines on day wear. I'd have to wear a vest or something over them. They show too much skin for the office or even the grocery store. That's more like the amount of skin I'd show on the beach.

I hate the everything-sleeveless craze that has been around for years. I think it looks frumpy and women are always freezing everywhere.

In Canada, a jumper is a dress with straps.

Flip-flops on anyone. Sandals on men. I don't want to see people's feet.
Pregnant women "showing off" that they're pregnant. Gross.

There was a time not long ago when women wore gloves and hosiery and men wore dress hats (which they took OFF when they entered a building). Sad commentary on how society has become so unrefined.

Is this about what we don't like on ourselves or what we hate to see other people wear.

Cuz I really don't care what other people wear unless they are showing off a body that would look better covered a little more.

White bras under white shirts. Wear nude please! White under white does not mean nice!
Dark underwear under light colored clothes - honestly, are people even thinking?
Flip flops.
Socks in sandals.
Booties in the summer (unless you live in Greenland)
Cartoon character on TShirts when you're older than 15.
Leather pants.
