I know this section is the men's fashion section, but what about the ladies? what parts of their fashion do you dislike/particularly like?

I came across this segment on yahoo just now and thought it was pretty entertaining.

(feel free to move this to another section if it fits better there)

In my opinion, sweats with brand names and such aren't fashionable at all. Enough with all the brands!

Fricking yoga pants, yeah your butt looks good in them, but here in Vancouver where lululemon was born it is a pandemic. The overabundance of yoga-wear has led to every girl underdressing and putting no real effort in to her clothing.

Work, clubs, restaurants: freaking yoga pants. If I can carry seperate clothes for the gym in my truck, you can to.

YES MAD



On a side note I am a big fan of brouge heels, trendy yes but attractive.

Yeah, I don't understand why they do this. At the gym, perfect. At home, lovely. Around town, not so much. I like the whole, "I don't need to dress up to look attractive," notion, but sometimes its more of an etiquette thing.

Things worthy of summary execution:

1. Anything with words written across the butt (e.g., "PINK"). The only function this performs is to remind the observer of tractor-trailers with the words "Wide Load" across the back.

2. Bangs

3. High-waisted anything

4. Anything made of jersey fabric

5. Slip-on flats

6. Socks with individual toe pockets.

7. [fortunately, these are not currently in style] backless blouses that look like baby bibs, popular with the club hoochies.

8. Skinny jeans, capris, or any pant that tapers toward the ankle. They only emphasize how much wider one's hips are relative to the rest of the lower body. If you want to pick up black men, go ahead and wear them. I don't do fatties.

You gotta be kidding me! Girls with bangs are hot! Asian girls anyway...

That cami + shirt combo is usually a good choice.
V-neck sweaters and polos can work occasionally, but it depends on the girl.

Skirts are great if they can pull them off. Skirts with leggings could potentially be great too.

You should probably qualify some of these by indicating you are referring to slightly out of shape women in the first place.

High waisted anything, jersey, backless items, and skinny pants/jeans are not flattering on people without the bodies to pull them off.

Audrey Hepburn pretty much summarizes how I believe a woman should dress - conservative enough to be taken seriously as an employee/wife/mother, but revealing enough to provide some hint of her physical attributes.

Stacey London from What Not to Wear (a show in the U.S.) is a good modern example of this.

Oh, and the person who said that he doesn't like flats needs to completely reevaluate that - ballet flats are classic staples in woman's fashion, and they can look so good on a shapely pair of bare legs.
