OK, and what is your thought on detachable sleeves for tops. I would really like to see this as a common option in women's clothing. It eliminates layering for chillness entirely. If you intend to be the kind of gal who dresses for utility, this option is very convenient.

Oh, I don't even CONSIDER those!! With the size of my boobies, the pockets would end up either in my nose or getting caught on everything I walked past.

I was watching QVC recently when the "wear everything in your closet look came on." I don't care if that is the latest style; I wouldn't be caught dead in it. I don't think I have ever seen clothes that were more ugly and they even made the model look ugly.

what's with the short, heavy older women in capri pants/clamdiggers?

Those really only look good on tall, slim ladies or well-proportioned petites, imo

Detachable sleeves would be ridiculous. It's easier just to bring a cardigan along, like many women already do.

I won't buy any shirts with chest pockets. For some reason they are usually tiny which looks especially unflattering. I also avoid tops with 3/4 sleeves usually. I don't know why but that is a big thing. Why can't manufacturers/designers create tops with long sleeves, and wearers can choose to push them up? It just looks dated and frumpy.

With jeans nowadays it is near impossible to find a pair with a nice, regular wash and no "whiskering" or fading or holes. The fading looks horribly tacky usually- long oblong white blobs on the front and back of the top of the leg. I've never had jeans fade like that. Besides the point, it just looks cheap and chubs the leg up.

My biggest issue with skirts and dresses is length- many cute styles are un-purchasable for me if they are too short. I'd like to wear them to work and so forth, I can't wear dresses or skirts shorter then an inch above knee. It's hard to find stylish dresses or skirts that are as long as that. I just think manufacturers are getting cheap and don't want to spare a few cents on extra fabric.

I can only see it on jackets that can turn into vests. But I think the current solution is attaching straps and buttons to blouse sleeves in order to keep rolled up sleeves in place.

What are they supposed to wear—shorts? If they discovered a more a flattering cut for them, perhaps they'd wear them.
