Pawprint is launching a new column every week talking about things that make us go “WTF”. This week’s column talks fashion.
Everyone at some point has seen that fashion trend that just makes them think “WTF?” Here are a few I’m sure you’ve noticed, and hopefully aren’t guilty of yourself.
Skinny jeans can be cute, as long as they are not too skinny. And generally, they tend to look better on women.
On the flip side, there is the other extreme of pants that are too baggy! The word “underwear” is actually pretty easy to understand. They are meant to be worn under what you wear. What’s the point of even wearing pants if you are going to let them fall down to your knees? Come on boys.
Shorts and Ugg Boots
Summer + Winter = Sinter? Wummer? No.
There is nothing wrong with slipping on a pair of boots to run out to the mailbox. However, choosing to wear shorts with a pair of winter Ugg boots to school or out around town is not cute and definitely not okay. Could you just not remember which season it was?
Wearing a pair of leggings with a shirt that covers your backside is perfectly fine and in many cases very cute and fashionable. However, wearing leggings as pants without a long shirt is typically absolutely disgusting. This look is not flattering in any way whatsoever. You’re hurting the people behind you even more than you are yourself!
This is where I will have a big fit.
1. Why in the world would anyone ever think these shoes are cool? They are quite honestly the most hideous shoes I have seen in my entire life.
2. They are rubber. Seriously?
3. I can maybe understand wearing them to the river, (Even though you can find water shoes about 1,000 times cuter) but wearing them on purpose, in public, or to school? I would really like to know what was going on in the head of anyone who has ever bought these shoes.
I would really like to punch whoever though it was a good idea to bring these back again. This is their third or fourth comeback now. Don’t you think there is a good reason they went away?
Showing Your Thong
I don’t even think this one needs an explanation. This has never been and will never be ok.
Wearing Sunglasses Inside
Trying to look “cool” by wearing sunglasses inside really just gives you the exact opposite effect.
Again with the hippies. First the bell-bottom jeans and now these ugly headbands.
Socks with Flip Flops
No matter what the reasoning behind the choice to wear socks with flip flops, it is never alright. You have two options: simply take off the socks and wear the flip flops like they are supposed to be worn or just put on a pair of actual shoes. It’s really not that difficult.
I think guys are developing this strange desire to show off their bodies more. First there’s the saggy pants showing off their underwear, then there is the tight jeans that “show off” their legs, and now there’s these v-neck shirts that show off almost their entire chest. Boys have their shirts off all of the time anyway so what’s the purpose of wearing a shirt that cuts down to your belly button?
The picture more than explains the failure in this fashion trend. I really hope you aren’t a part of this one.
