Recently my sister found herself in the airport waiting to board a delayed flight. She was innocently minding her own business when she came across a crime against fashion that she found utterly deplorable. So much so, that she snapped a photo and sent it my way. I too was appalled.
Allow me to share the image:
Yes, that is a thong hanging out of those jeans. Why? Why? This pains me to no end. Your panties belong in your jeans. This is not cute, or sexy or anything else appealing. It is trashy. There I said it. Please deal with this.
Okay. Pfew. Ranting and raving always makes me feel better!
But, let us not kid ourselves. This is just one of the many crimes against fashion that do not need to continue. And to be clear, I believe fashion rules should be broken. These are crimes. They should result in a fine or a short prison sentence.
Of course this email came just as I was considering writing some sort of resolution post. But then I realized it would be far more fun to make a list of Crimes Against Fashion that I hope not to see in 2012.
1) Bras that don’t fit. Be they too big or too small, either way this is not flattering. Too big and you are constantly adjusting straps, too small and well your back gets squeezed inappropriately and let’s just say your cup runneth over…
2) Clothing that is too small/big. Yes, this is another size issue- but rightfully so! When clothing fails to fit it completely detracts and distracts.
3) Pajamas in public. Unless you have recently escaped from some sort of institution or are a very young child this is not acceptable. No one is saying you have to dress to the nines to run an errand, just put on something that can actually be called clothing.
Okay, so that is my list! What crimes against fashion are you hoping were left in 2011?
