Disclaimer: This article will be filled with negative phrases and insulting words to certain fashion items so if you want to read about something happy and positive, this is not the kind of article you are looking for. Everything is based on my opinion and everything written in this article is purely subjective. Some may agree with me and some may not because fashion and style are personal.
While I am all for fashion and self expression, I cringe at the sight of certain fashion items. I don't have anything against people who wear such things but you will never (okay, maybe just rarely) see me wearing them and I believe that the fashion industry should never have allowed these things to exist:
- Thong sandals - I just don't really like how they look. Period. No matter how gorgeous the embellishments are and how nice your feet looks, these hellish looking shoes should never be worn outside the comforts of your house. They make any outfit and any feet look undersirable (at least in my vision). No designer or brand should be allowed to make these anymore. They are just unpleasant to the eyes.
- All black outfit - It just looks dull and dead. In case you haven't noticed, I am all for colors (pastel colors to be exact) and to wear an all black outfit is a mortal sin committed against my personal style. Only when I attend formal events at work will you ever see me in an all black outfit (black dress and shoes) because it is a requirement. Other than that, no way.
- bodysuit - I have no idea why people would wear them for any other occasion than a ballet class/recital. They don't look presentable enough to be worn at work or to a meeting or for any other thing than a ballet class/recital.
- Pantsuits - These do look nice but I wouldn't wear them because I don't look nice in them. I am petite vertically and horizontally and the way my body is built just doesn't seem to match pantsuits. I do like them but I look hideous in them.
- Shoulder pads - The 80's is long gone and I think we should all move on from this trend. I cannot comprehend how shoulder pads became a trend because I think they are not flattering at all. They make anyone look like a quarterback. I already have broad shoulders to begin with and adding more volume to it will drown my neck and I'll look like I don't have a neck at all (like after my head it is already my shoulders; no neck in between).
People have different tastes and opinions when it comes to fashion and what looks ugly to one might be beautiful to another. Fashion is personal as it speaks about who the person is. One should not be defined by trends and people. Wear it if you like it but make sure you wear it with confidence.
