Fashion might not be at the top of your list but we all have opinions about it. Why are skirts so short, shoes so ugly, or a simple pair of jeans so expensive! We have styles we prefer as well as colors. The give us some personality and definition. Some people love the clothes racks at the department stores and others hate shopping for clothes. I'm in the latter group! Clothes shopping is right up there with watching paint dry. smhair But like it or not we do have opinions.

So, when it comes to fashion, what do you consider to be the biggest No-No?

From what I've seen out and about for the past 5+ years that is a HUGE No-No is wearing your clothes so your underwear shows! How disgusting is that? And who in heavens name needs to see your underwear? I mean, think about it! Girls wear a spaghetti strap tank top and a bra under it...and you can see the bra straps as well as the tank top. Some have taken to wearing the underwear on the outside of their street clothes. That just makes you look stupid. And the young guys and some older ones who wear baggy shorts so large than they hang down around their, umm, hips and their Fruit of the Looms are showing the top 6"! Ladies, give some thought as to how attractive that is! So to correct my fashion No-No...keep your underwear on the inside where it belongs. <shudder>

What is your fashion No-No you want to share?

White brassiere, black top. It will always, always show through, especially if someone takes your picture wearing it!

Love this subject!
1st... Muumuu's.. I mean come on.. you CAN find something that fits!
2nd...Tight stretch pants when you are really over weight. I'm not tiring to be mean.. but I don't want to see everything you have going on below the belt!
3rd...Girls who should wear longer shirts...If it hangs.. cover it up! My kids told me that once when they saw a girl with a half shirt on and it was all hanging out.
4th...This one is for me... flip flops! Just because I can't wear them and they are so darn cute :0)

This is my first post to Koffee Klatch after reading so many.. I will have to post more often :0)

Hi Shiffs!

Bum cracks are not for public display. That's my big no-no.

Oh, and just because I'm Australian, I say no to spaghetti straps in summer, just because of the skin cancer risk.

Oh, and track suit combinations decorated with specially-chosen patchwork and embroidery, worn as a special occasion outfit, with gold court shoes. NO!!! nono

I don't like the Lycra tops young women are wearing.  They look like they shrunk four sizes and they usually allow nearly all of the boob to hang out there for the world to see.  Yuck!  They could just paint their upper torsos.  You'd get the same effect for less money.

Mine is muffin top. Any combination of clothing - usually involving tight, low-rise pants and skin-tight or short tops. Unless you're under fifteen and/or anorexic, you've got a roll at the top of your pants. Very unattractive, and I alway wonder why anyone would do that to herself!

And I'd rather clean toilets than shop for clothes.

I guess my age is showing with this one, Chutzie. I cannot stand skin tight jeans with spike heels. It makes me hurt to just think about it!!!

Wearing ill fitting clothes! People should recognize their own size and shape and
wear clothing that flatters them...too many belly shirts with too much belly!!!

I have to go with the 'butt crack jeans'.  How do they even walk when the crotch of the pants is down past their knees?  I have also noticed that it is very stylish to wear your clothing with the price tag still attached.   I saw a young lady in Wendy's the other day and all her clothes were inside out.

However...I am so old I can remember wearing skirts so tight I had to shuffle down the hallways at school...cardigan sweaters buttoned up the back with the 'nose cone' bra that would kill a person if you bumped into them...fake 'beauty marks' drawn with eye brow pencil all over my face...my hair teased and sprayed to my head like a helmet...and black leather flats that were so pointed that when you took the stupid things off your toes were stacked on top of each other.

Tattooes were something you saw on street thugs.  At 39 years old, both my son and DIL got the old ying/yang tatoo seared into there shoulder.  Oh well...

I wear the muumuu's but not in public lol.

I hate seeing young women with skimpy tops that show their bellys. Once had a girl in a shop where I was working who had a belly like an 8 month pregnancy wearing one of those. OMG...I was embarrassed for her but she wore that top like it was a badge of honour. Poor delusional girl :(

Butt-cracks should not be seen, nor should your thongs.
Underwear is to be worn UNDER clothes. I do disagree with Chutz a tiny bit here. I think that if the bra strap is clear or matches the tank top it's not too bad. I just don't think it's any worse to see a bra strap than to see a tank top strap. Why should a woman who's a little more well endowed be restricted from wearing tops that will help her keep cool in the summer?
Yoga pants with the top rolled down and the tag sticking out ... at least cut off the tag!
socks with sandals ... I'm so guilty of this one though. I wear socks with sandals in the winter.
Muffin top/rolls of fat hanging out. Wear a size or two bigger ... srsly ... it doesn't matter if you can say "I wear a size 0" if most of you doesn't fit IN the pants.

Oh, my!
 
I'm laughing so hard reading these posts, I'm having a coughing fit!  And Vestabula I can just see you coming down the hallway in that get up because I'm of the same generation and know EXACTLY what you are talking about
 
If you want the real picture of all the wrong things to wear, you only have to look at Ugly Betty.  The combos she comes up with are true  fashion nightmares.  Flowered blouses with striped jackets plaid skirt with checkered leggings, all with loud and  horrible colors that don't go together at all.  EEk! 
 
But I will agree with all of you that the worst is the short crop top and the low hanging pants with the belly roll hanging out.  Come on, what might I ask is fashionable or good looking about that?

The super tight fitting clothes on young girls. They look like ******s. How about an 10 yr old totally in
leather (real) for the first day of school...super mini skirt, jacket, low cut shirt and stockings. I couldn't
believe it. The guys with their fruit of the loom guys waving is kind of sick too. I'm kind of worried about
crusty fallout!!

ALL of the above, plus a button down shirt that is toooo small. I can't stand when the shirt has the gaps between buttons, so you can see the bra or even the flesh. Just buy a larger shirt, for Pete's sake. Oh boy, I sound like my mother.

God bless.  Alice.

I'm with nana. ..my husband & I saw a tricker treater that could have passed as being dressed like an exotic dancer. I mean come on..that's just inviting trouble. If they r trick r treating then they should not be allowed to look promiscuous.

I'm only 27 & when I was 19 I was sucked in2 going 2 a brittney spears concert ...which I was not a fan..but that was the 1st time I ever saw little girls dressed that way. It was very disturbing.

I saw a nine-year-old boy the other day, down the street *with his parents*, wearing a t-shirt that read "lock up your daughters".

What sort of parents would allow their young son to wear a t-shirt like that?! I was shocked.

I agree with all of these--I don't want to see anybody's butt crack, boobs, or muffin tops! Why can't people just dress appropriately?

I can't stand when people wear Pajamas in public. I'm all about comfort, but put on some real clothes before leaving the house.

around here, it's red ribbon week, so i'll see a lot of inside out clothes, mismatching, pajama day, stuff like that.

i've noticed here that girls with really big guts jst do not care. when i was in high school obesity was not an issue. there really weren't that many truly heavy girls. so, i didn't see a lot of that, but it is perfectly ok now. i think it is retail fault. i have a cousin and i used to take her shopping a lot and they shirts that were xl, were more like s, ...in american eagle, and they were skin tight all the way down. gross. i'm27 and i just can't get used to that. and i have a gut now, but i'm not comfortable showing it.

I won't wear guy pajamas out cause of the open flap in the front ... but girl pajamas are not that different from yoga pants so I have no problem wearing them out.
