Skinny Jeans are looked down on in Texas; no dude should be allowed to wear those.

Texans dress style is southern mixed with western.

In NOLA area schools it's plaid, ties, & sweaters. I've seen kids try to make the pants into skinny jeans, etc. The girls alter the plaid skirts and go to school looking like jail bait.

The scarf thing, I really don't get.

Yeah I know what I said. They are looked down here, but people wear them; however, they are usually from out of state. If you listen to Texas rappers they also will rap about their ill feelings toward the whole skinny jean trend (Independent Chicks - Candi Redd or If that's how you feel - Z-ro)

and a lot of stylists from the south have lived in, live in and/or get their style from whats popular or going to be popular in ny and/or cali. it is what it is.

i have contacts in the fashion industry and am heavily into fashion. i know what i'm talking about.

beyonce's stylist for her wardrobes for CONCERTS is her mom. beyonce's mom is not telling her what to wear everyday. beyonce definitely dresses like a nyer. rightfully so, she's a celeb and she lives in nyc.

he said the styles aren't common and that they wouldn't catch on because its too hot.

he lied. if its not common why would schools move to try to ban it? it has to
"be a problem" with enough ppl to warrant that. i'm not stupid.

also, the scarf thing is from ny. i thought it was too hot for that in tx for that to be part of the style for some of the youth? then it "caught on." again, oh ok.

nyc's style of fashion is more than skinny jeans tho. again, the other things on my list are seen where you are and in other areas. you're focusing on one thing out of many.

lol @ labeling the ppl there that are influenced by ny fashion transplants.

I never said Skinny jeans weren't common; I was talking about those pictures you had up. The dudes with the jackets and sweaters.

He didn't say it was common.. He said it wasn't the norm. There could be like a "normal" trend and then all of a sudden you have an increase in the "new" trend. It would be common to see the "new" thing, but it isn't the norm. That's how I see it anyway.

But you know what. I'm gonna slide out of this one, because it has nothing to do with me. What do I know?

i don't know about in texas and in new orleans, but everywhere else in america

the norm = something that is common. if someone says something like, "oh that style isn't the norm here."

ppl take that as you will not see that style there because it is not common there. i shouldn't have to break this down.

That's why I was commenting on those pictures which aren't the norm except for the 6th pictures and it looks like Nicki Minaj is wearing beach wear; I fail to see what was influential or stylish about what she was wearing.

If you ever come to Texas; you'll see my point.
