This makes no sense. People still wear skinny jeans constantly and they are more popular than ever, that's why they aren't cool.

So you're saying skinny jeans are uncool because they are popular? That is just as bad as wearing something because everybody else does it. Why can't people just wear what suits them without having to be so trend fixated?

Fashion is an art form. A friend of mine once said "I don't paint, I just get dressed every morning." If you are wearing the things that everyone else is wearing, you aren't much of an artist. When things that were at one point your form of self expression become co-opted by the masses, it takes away the individual expression of your style, defeating the purpose of fashion entirely. While yeah, you can say that you were doing it before it was cool, it doesn't change the fact that your trendsetting has become irrelevant. Fashion works because people move on from the things that have become common and do something new that doesn't yet have a box around it. You need people like me to figure out what you're going to be wearing in six months.

I guess this is my standard outfit type 2.

clothes

As you can see, when the pockets are not big enough I do not know where to put my hands.

I like this a lot more. The jeans are a better wash and a much better fit for your figure. However, that shirt... I dunno man the whole "plaid-cowboy-shirted-hipster-scenester-lumberjack" look is so completely overdone at this point that I would branch out if I were you. Like, it is a good shirt, but maybe it is time for something new.

Well, I'm not really interested in what I will be wearing in six months... Sorry, but what you are saying sounds kinda clothing-hipsterish.

So guys I do not usually approve of the idea of sweaters as dresses but.







Also I don't wear strapless things generally, but.





I don't usually like strapless things on anyone because I notice girls tend to droop their shoulders inward and look a little bit uncomfortable because maybe it feels like the dress might fall down and somehow slightly worse posture will help it stay up or something. However, even though the model is doing the shoulder thing too, that is still so cute.

I think it's the fact that the strapless dress is so fitted that keeps it from being a trainwreck.

For example, check out this thing I found on a quick GIS.



It's formless enough as it is even with the lady trying to pose for the picture but it's passable. However, add in drooping shoulders and you may as well start wearing garbage bags.

Also, I hate babydolls and ill-advised empire waists badly enough as it is, but by going strapless you can take one even further out into eyesore territory.



Again, just imagine how extra bad this will look once the model stops posing her heart out.

The next abomination is so terrible that I'm not even going to try using it as an example for anything, I just stumbled upon it while searching for the previous entries and was dumbfounded by the possibilities this thing has when slouching.

a) You forgot to mention that the second dress you posted is atrocious because it also has one of those stupid bubble hems.

b) Remember that it is not necessarily empire waists you are talking about. You are right with the babydoll hating, though.

c) I actually was reading a celebrity gossip magazine sometime last year at my retail job (it was the only thing in the break room with words in it) and I think I saw Hillary Duff in one of those dresses like the third picture. It took me a while, but I finally realised the [only] appeal of that style, which is that it pretty much looks like a bath towel, and is thus really leading and makes it easy to imagine the chick naked. That doesn't mean it doesn't look horrible, but I think that is why people wear them.

My response to C is similar. Someone wearing that is bound to have a nice body (otherwise how could they stand to be seen in public in that?) and there's the appeal.

What I'm getting at is that dresses in that style are pleasing to the eye because that dress is sort of the fashion equivalent of a shibboleth where if you see that dress you are looking at an attractive person.


ADDITION: The biologist in me can't help pointing out that this is the same explanation as why ridiculously large antlers evolved. If you see an animal with huge elaborate antlers, you must be looking at a really strong buck because they're the only ones who can get away with huge elaborate antlers.

My friend Nads saw the picture of that dress and made a good point. He said, "you know, it might make me imagine them naked, but I like to choose who I am going to imagine naked. What if she is Paris Hilton? I don't want to have to stab my brain."

Also it is unfortunate that only attractive people wear them because it means they don't really know how to dress themselves or have any sense of what "attractive" is.

Oh shit clothes

Man I do not know what everyone's talking about, you look pretty great in both outfit types. Type 2 showed that you really have no reason to not wear more fitting clothes.

If you're not keen on skinnies you should at least try boot cut jeans. They will not make you look/feel like a complete woman, unlike skinnies. Plus, boots! Boots are a great shoe type that look fucking class with casual shirts.

Jeans, I think you are a rather dashing dresser as well. I never thought there was anything wrong with the way you dressed. Also, I love your hooks. Haha very awesome.



Also, everyone should at least try bootcuts. I love them quite a bit, and I think most of my jeans are bootcut.

I'm in such a dilemma. I'm starting to see this dude but like one of my main concerns is him dressing like a Value Village artist. I want to make this boy buy some skinny jeans (without paint all over them), cardigans and fly ass kicks because he's all skinny and pretty, but I can't! I AM REALLY SHALLOW.

Take him shopping and buy him these things. Or better yet, get him to try them on and see how good he looks and he'll buy it himself.



Guys, today I wore this shirt, well kinda. My shirt doesn't say Dead Kennedys on the back. It is fitted, and super soft, and kinda faded, and I love this shirt. I wore it with these pants, and . Was this a bad decision? I do actually like dead kennedys.

You don't get it huh.

Also, boot cut jeans are the worst cut there is. Jeans you should look into the levi's 511 and 501, especially the unwashed 501 shrink to fit.

The dress is cute, as are the shoes. The girl is alright, as well. I don't know if I like the tights though. But, I don't generally like tights.



Also, I'd like to take some time to point out, and I am vaguely certain that this has been pointed out before, but I'd like to say that corduroy is like the fabric of champions. Seriously. I fall head over heels for anyone who wears a lot of corduroy. Phil's hatin the picture thread made me think of this.

She is very awkward looking and cute!

And, I think I agree with Ms. Emaline. I mean, I get the whole "dressing is an art" but wouldn't it work best to use pieces and make them your own? Skinny jeans are just like any other kind of jeans; you can certainly make them work for you. You basically said you weren't interested in wearing anything the masses are into, right? It just sounds as stupid as an artist who creates art specifically so the masses won't like it... not just pushing boundaries, just signifying "in" groups by who "gets it" and who doesn't. Feel free to correct me if I'm misinterpreting you!

That dress/stockings/shoes combo is so goddamned cute.

Also, people have different definitions of what "fashion" means.  People like me, for example, take looking fashionable to mean that you can colour-co-ordinate and pick clothes that suit your body type and make you look good.  There are others though that take fashion more seriously and view it as an artform.  Which is more correct?  I don't know!  I've always seen this thread to be something in the middle, where people can offer suggestions as to what would look good on other people, show off outfits they are particularly pleased or enamoured with and so forth.

I think also that when it comes to hipster fashion or whatever you want to call it there are a number of types of people, but the important ones to note are the ones who are dressing that way because it's how they want to look andthe ones who are dressing that way because it's how they think others want them to look.  If you're in the first category and you're dressing in an independent way based on taking things you've seen and liked and adding your own personal touch to them then that's great.  Whether you look good or not, whatever, you're doing your own thing and that's commendable.  If you're the type that sees what's popular and wears it because you think it'll score points with other people then that's kind of lame.

But this is also an art form.


Refusing to wear something just because everyone else wears it, even it make you look good, is rather silly. It's like saying bands like Minor Threat have sold out because they have sold a large amount of records. Maybe it's because they are good.

Man, I would say fashion is an art form. However, not everyone is skilled and awesome in that art form and just have a reasonable idea for what works in them. I mean, not everyone can perfectly critique and outfit like animal ghosts and know what exactly would look good on certain people. I certainly can't do that. However, I can dress myself reasonably well. (well i could if had better clothes to work with.)

Did that make any sense?

Or you could be ultra cool, and learn to knit your own.*

Guys, no more pants!

I thought you were cool Robbie.

So, I only have 3 pairs of pants that aren't ridiculous Kung Fu pants. One pair are khakis and these things hug my legs pretty close, but not super close, it's weird. And I've got the shittiest pair of pants ever. I resewed them to be straight legged, but I wore them so much so they've got paint, dried blood, a hole near the inner thigh, superglue, and all kinds of wear to them. I want to fix them up so I can wear them again, but the hole is a little ridiculous, so is the rest of the stuff like paint and glue and stuff. How do I fix these pants?

Well, does us being broken up or not change any of the practical applications of our relationship?
If you're actually planning this, backpack through Guelph, ON in the last weekend of July and go to Hillside.

Fashion thread I started rolling up my pants this summer both for biking considerations and heat control, and I am kind of in love with it now. Basically, I fold the bottom cuff up so the top of the fold is just below the lowest part of my knee, fold that fold once on itself, then fold it up again so that the pants stop just at the lowest point of my knees. I think it looks great.
Fashion thread is this OK?

ITT: Fatty demonstrates Things Not To Do

Strapless Dresses:


Bubble Skirts: (old awkward photo)


Bootcut Jeans: (this is before I hemmed them


Dresses over jeans: (I mostly agree with this as a general principle)

This.

You guys are so funny when you argue over clothes.

I know, Dan. The missing comma was driving me crazy, too.

Hey everyone, I need to buy some new bookshelves. When I get back from Ikea and put them together you're all invited to the bookshelf launch party.

Man I don't know what it is but I have been on a dress kick lately.





(the one on the right)






Also I think this is absolutely the best dress ever. Well, maybe not ever, but it is the best combination of multiple design elements that are supposed to be flattering that I have ever seen. Also, I look really good in blue. Anyone want to lend me $400?

I really wish mens formal wear had as many options as dresses do, all of those are cute but the last two are just devastatingly elegant.

Men's formal wear is more about colors and accessories (read: rad vests and hats). We've got less to work with I suppose, but it's totally possible to look super rad in a suit.

The white one would look better strapless, in my opinion. Also the last one has odd sleeves. Love the color though, and if you had the event to wear it to it would be pretty great.

I pretty much hate all strapless dresses. I think it's from looking at too many wedding dresses and realizing all the strapless ones make me want to shoot myself because they're so deadly boring. That said, there are a few ok ones, but I think skinny girls look bony and skeletor-like, and chunky ones look broad and jiggly from lack of support. So there is a very very narrow window of people who can get away with them, and I'm pretty sure I'm not in that window.

I just think the tiny little straps look odd and maybe a little cheap or something.

Oddly enough that's exactly what I think when I see no straps.
