    I would say the mini-skrt rankled my parents. What bothers me today are low-riding pants and exposed boxers for guys and combinations of low-cut top, short skirts, and high heels on women.

      I think it is great that every generation can find a way to bug the parents!!

      I have seen so many offenders of both sexes in inappropriately low-riding pants out and about that I wish there was some form of memory bleach to rid my mind of the visuals.

    I was 21 years old, had my own home and car. I stopped past my dad's house before going to beach and my dad said my shorts were too short! The inseam was about 4 inches and nothing was hanging out because I'd never do that, but dad's never stop being dad's do they?

    Now the trend of girls and grown women wearing the equivalent of t-shirts as dresses has come about as a norm. I cannot stand this because too often things I don't want to see pop out or are completely visible no matter how much pulling and tugging the wearer does. It is not pretty or flattering and usually sends the wrong message about the wearer.

      Express10, love your answer -- and/but also am thinking of how shocking trousers (let alone shorts!) were for women not too long ago (actually still some places). 
      But agree, you shouldn't need to tug and pull...

      You are right about women's trousers being shocking and the fact that it still is so in some places is shocking to me. I hadn't thought of this recently. How far some have come just for some things to remain the same, eh?

    My mom didn't care too much about clothes, but it really bugged her that I didn't shave my legs. My son got into those super baggy shorts, you know, the crotch is at the knees and the hem hits about mid-calf. I hate those, he still wears them. I think it's funny now, his daughter likes skinny jeans, but it seems to be a fashion with her crowd for the butt to be baggy on them. That really bugs my son.
