He pulled out a pair of black leggings and stated loudly, "most of the women who wear these to the office shouldn't even be wearing them in the privacy of their own homes, do I need to tell you who you are?!!" What an introduction, I laughed my butt off but could not agree more. She went on to do other highly inappropriate things. Back in the day when jobs were still posted in newspapers, she would leave an employment page on someone's desk with a job highlighted in yellow and stickee saying, "something you might want to look into". She was a hoot, and hated by many but, I still agree with her fashion sense.

Hmmmm...wasn't Transamerica, was it? We had a similar thing where I used to work, way back in the 90's.

Apparently my unpopular opinion is that almost anyone looks fine in leggings, as long as they are thick, quality, and your top is long enough.

I also think yoga pants are fine in public, casual places...Starbucks, Target, Grocery store, and like leggings...as long as they are thick and nice and you cover things appropriately, most women look fine in them.

Obese people can wear whatever they feel good in. They are allowed to go out in public no matter what the judgy people wish.

Uggs are the absolute best hockey mom shoes on earth. I will continue to love them.

What other people wear is none of my business and I truly don’t care or judge...but things *I* won’t wear or buy

Leggings without covering my butt
Super Short dresses
Stilettos with jeans
Athletic shoes with jeans
Sweatpants
Heels (except for wedges or thicker heels on boots) unless it’s a dressy occasion
Sandals without taking care of my feet


I will not dress my sons in

Sleeveless shirts

I don’t like cargo shorts on grown men so I won’t buy them for my husband or teenager

Cover the cracks , bumps and lumps.

It's unpopular I suppose yet I prefer classy ,demure and discrete styles vs the show and tell.

Yes, I have to say that this is the epitome of my unpopular fashion opinion, more or less...mostly more.

Honestly, there is no point to it. They’re worthless.

I used to wear them growing up until I realized how hot it made you. Even if one is wearing a long sleep button down, they can simply wear a white plane t-shirt or v-neck under it

They’re too tight and uncomfortable for leisure around the house attire as well.

I guess my unpopular opinion is that the demand to be completely hairless from the neck down (for both women and men) is a pain in the butt (sometimes literally.) Do whatever grooming you want and take care of your hygiene, but beyond that no one should feel like have to be waxed smooth at all times in order to be socially acceptable.

I have no use for the rule; "first socks, then shoes", I refuse to be a lemming

I dislike high heeled shoes with jeans, cold shoulder tops, super long (natural or not) fingernails, especially those with gemstones and glitter. Low rise jeans if the wearer has muffin top. I'll be back if (when?) I think of more.
