    What current fashion trends do you find bothersome or, at the very least, questionable?

    It seems that shorter and tighter are now the norm, even in the workplace. Am I getting old? What fashion trends, for men or women, have you scratching or shaking your head?

    I think that tighter is stupid - on man or woman.

      I do not think that it is funny. How can anyone bend over, sit down - move around.

    Yoga pants.

    Now I'm not one to tell anyone else what to wear or not wear, but if you go out in public with skin tight pants on, then every single pair of male eyes within range is going to notice.

    So either wear them and live with that, or don't wear them. But to wear them and then complain about eyes on you is silly. Might as well ask a starving person at a buffet to pretend the food isn't there. It's never going to happen.

      Ha, ha, you're right. Expect the attention, smile back, and keep it moving. Or cover up, right? Thanks for answering.

    I cannot stand the pants hanging off the butt thing - omg I want to run up behind these boys and pull their blasted pants up around their neck and belt them off wink  When I was going to classes during the day when most of the younger ones are there, I was baffled at the amount of young men running around with their pants hanging off their butts.  If my sons tried that - don't even get me started lol. 

    I also think skinny jeans on most body types look horrid and those skin tight see through leggings when women don't wear shirts long enough to cover their backsides are pretty gross too.

      Oh, yes, the cheap leggings are the worst. Funny response about "belting off at the neck," LOL! Thanks for answering.

    I think that, regardless of fashion, some things were—and weren't—meant to be worn by certain people. From what I see around Minnesota, everyone needs to see a fashion consultant, myself included! And colors are SO important to get right for a person's coloring. Not everyone can wear every shade of red, for example. Oh—and grown women need to dress MUCH better in the workplace and WEAR MAKEUP! (We're not kids any more—grown-ups wear makeup!) Love the "no nylons" trend, though—especially since they're so expensive and fragile (and huge lint brushes that capture your pets' hair—ewww!

      Yes, all trends not for all people. The "no nylons" trend is a tough one when it's cold. You also need to maintain decent skin and feet, not easy. Thanks for answering.

    I was really excited when leggings came back in style, but just like before, people are abusing this fashion trend.  I am afraid it will go out of style again soon since too many people are wearing them in an inappropriate way.  When a person wears leggings, she is supposed to wear a long shirt, a dress, a tunic, a skirt... or just something to give her behind covered.  Plenty of people seem to be ignoring that rule now.

    I've even started to see people at my office wearing leggings with a regular shirt on.  I am seeing wayyyyyyy more than I need to see!  Not only is it inappropriate for work, it is inappropriate for life!  I also enjoy wearing leggings, but I make sure to keep my butt covered.  I don't care what size a person is, it is not a good look.

    I have to say men/boys wearing skinny jeans.....these jeans were made for the female persuasion. Then to make it worse, some of these kids will wear tight skinny jeans, and sag them under their butt and can barely walk. In my day, a guy would get beat up wearing something like that. And these mohawks have to go as well, Mr. T made it work like 30 years ago...but ummm naahh.....I guess I'm getting old and I'm not cool anymore.

      LOL, I hear you, Alpha, I feel the same way. But I think we're still old school cool. Thanks for your answer.
