what do you see on people and just want to arrest them? i just heard a funny segment where some one said that anyone sporting a camel toe should be sent to a game park and shot, i am not a big fan of sleevelss fleecy vest on ladies- a look that is oh so popular around my way (even though my girls have them becasue they are practical) and i really loath wrangler jeans, and i hate people who dress in theme for where ever they are going, huge cow boy hat and boots at a rodeo even though you live on the north shore and will never wear them again, or going to the markets in your earth mother skirt and sandles when you work in an office and wear heels and suits and don;t wear them anyother time, or political/cool band t-shirt that only gets out of the cupboard when you are going out with your old uni friends the rest of the time you are in counrty road and esprit....what are your serious crimes against fashion?

I'm a big plus size woman and nothing irks me more than seeing other women my size (and age) who run around in skin tight clothes that show way too much skin. If you 'liked' Lane Bryant on Facebook, read the comments under their Halloween costume sections. Apparently it's "OK" to wear that stuff as long as you feel confident enough to do it. Well no my darlings it isn't. You will still look ridiculous. And at my job, it is apparently a hiring requirement to wear pants so tight you might as well have them surgically implanted inside your skin. Oh and not wearing a bra at work - STOP IT!

Pajama jeans and muffin tops!
If wearing a pair of jeans is too "Dressed up" for you, you might want to rethink your life decisions :)

I just don't understand why people would wear pants soooooooo tight, that their fat rolls over the top. Why squeeze into pants that don't fit you? It doesn't even look comfortable, let alone flattering. I'd rather wear a 12 and look cute, than wear a 10 and look fat.

There is one thing that absolutely drives me nuts and my mother does it. Biker clothes, leather pants and vest, looks good on some people. However, they do not look good on 60 year old women! If you are in your 20s 0r 30s and have a rocking body, yeah, go for it. But where you start having some things sagging, please God don't do it!

HAHA In the middle of summer I don't even want to think about wearing socks! What are they thinking?

[deleted account]

Desiree - i hate pink and red together too! they're clashing colours! i live in north queensland in australia and ha i love the euros who come over in our winter and they have socks and sandles on oh oh and they wear them on the beach and i just feel like handing them a pair of thongs (not the underwear) and ripping off their socks and saying "hey wear these you might fit in" i also hate bum bags...or as people over in the states call them fanny *giggle* packs. again this is something my sister wears to music festivals in quirky clothes but she has a really quirky personality so it does work on her...but on anybody else *puke*

One thing that I can't understand how any woman in her right mind can wear this combination. Pink skirt, black stockings(nylons) and white shoes. Don't the see how stupid they actually look. and for some reason I can' stand to see a redhead in pink either, but I think that is because I can't see those 2 colours together in my mind they don't match. And as I live in South Africa and I am sure those ladies in NZ and Australia also see is the visitors from Europe and in Some cases the States wear sandles with socks. What Gives, did no one teach you that Socks are worn with closed shoes not sandles ever.... Unless yu are over 70 then don't do it.

I dont know if this has been mentioned in the last 5 pages but i can't stand those tiny denim shorts that girls wear where you can see the bottom of their butt cheeks when they walk. It's OK at the beach but it seems to be a popular look everywhere at the moment.

There is an older lady around 60 who rides her sparkely blue trike around town with her floral sundress flapping in the wind .

hey guess what everyone...im wearing tights :D with nothing over top (ok i was wearing a knitted dress earlier) and a singlet top but i am wearing a strapless bra :P ohh and im not skinny either although...my tummy is looking flatter..must be the tights :P

[deleted account]

Kelly - WHY!? why would you wear a skirt/dress on a motor bike!! what was she thinking!? and i thought daisy dukes on a motorbike was bad...well safety wise its terrible

[deleted account]

ugh...my husband and I did a big charity motorcycle ride (bike rally) for the children's hospital. We ended up in line behind this couple on a sports bike and the woman was wearing a mini skirt with no underwear-- the skirt rode up, of course, because it was way too tight for her and her legs were straddling a bike, so my poor husband had to ride 100+ miles staring at this woman's bare butt in his face.

Which leads me to another--mini skirts, or any kind of skirt for that matter, on a motorcycle.

@ Sarah~ I was just teasing about the sleep :) I assumed you weren't getting lots of sleep if you could sleep all day.

And yes...miniskirts with no undies. And trust me...the woman I saw doing this shouldn't have been wearing a miniskirt to begin with. My eyes still haven't forgiven me.

I've also seen people wearing a miniskirt with a thong. Either way, it's just not right. Just not right at all.

I wish I could sleep half the day...or even half the night...I'm officially jealous :)

It's getting warm and people are making me remember a major one that I forgot:
Miniskirts without panties underneath. Unless you are selling your goods for money and need to be able to prove your sex to prospective customers quickly....this is not a look that you should be wearing. If you bend over and I can see your ovaries, we're not okay.

Ashley - depending if my son is home or not depends on if i spend all day in my pjs...usually he's not home when i do it cos i sleep half the day and when i wake up i go "ohh its midday not much point in changing now"

I have no style. Jeans and a tee and black flats. All day, every day, as far back as I can remember. I have nice blouses and skirts for special occasions, but I love my jeans. They're all dark wash straight/boot cut so they look nice enough to go eat in.

Though I do commit fashion crimes daily during cool weather... I wear my black socks with my black flats. I'm sure it looks dreadful, but my feet get cold and I don't like tennies or boots - just flats.

[deleted account]

Also my neighbour lives in pjs.Hers just look like tracksuits.The girl i saw was in light blue ones..shirt style top and normal pj bottoms.There was white sheep all over them, including shirt.lol.She has some set of balls to be in public in them.:-P

[deleted account]

I am 5foot and 7stone.Slim and toned.I wouldn't even subject the public to seeing me in tight leggings with my butt and front showing.I see other girls with great figures and its still NOT flattering.Cover if your tiny or not.:-P

Wow I am a total ciminal of like the first 5 posts HAHAHA! Here I thought I looked good, oh wait I DO look good!

I dont have an issue with any clothes other then when people wear clothing to large for them, or to small for their body, and of course according to age. Nothing I hate seeing a 50+ year old wearing an outfit I feel is to sluty even for my 33 year old frame LOL.

[deleted account]

ohhh i have ugg boots...here in australia they're like slippers occasionally you'll see me sporting them to the big commercial waste bin in the unit block or to the letter box this is usually accompanied with my pj's

I wish I could dress like Cyndi Lauper or Pat Benatar. When I was a kid, I worshiped them but was too young to dress like that. By the time I was old enough the grunge era had arrived and no one did punk anymore. Now that it's back, I'm way too old. I missed my own era.



White leggings. On anyone, but particularly on very large girls. There is a woman I've seen at my local grocery store sporting this look. It's so bad that apparently one of my neighbors noticed it another day at the Chinese take-out and mentioned it at our meeting. And a friend of mine saw her at the park with her kid and mentioned it at a birthday party. This was 3 different days! I was sure after the time I saw her that she would have recognized the error of her ways and stopped. But apparently she's trying to blind our entire neighborhood.



I think one of my big pet peeves is moms dressing skanky. Seriously, if you're pushing a stroller, a tube top over a push-up bra, mini skirt and CFM boots just makes me want to ask you if you have any idea who the father is.

Haha I change styles like I change my mood ....frequently , I feel like that today and I probably will dress all 80's rock today but tomorrow I might just feel like dressing like a total diva , people cant figure me out , one girl at work once said " I dont understand one day your a beautiful floaty hippy in your big rainbow skirts and jewelry next day your in your leather , studs and denim mini looking like a goth "
Thats just me I have no one side to me my emotions rule my dress if you know me well enough you can figure me out just by looking at me ; )

I love the 80's I wish I could dress like a cross between cyndi lauper x pat benetar x cherri curry

[deleted account]

LMAO! I'm a walking fashion disaster apparently! I wear leggings and jeggings. AS PANTS my favorite leggings are black with electricity all over them. Usually with a bright electric purple striped shirt and a blue zebra print sweater. I love mixing patterns and colors...or i wear all black :P I look damn good in my leggings too! I wear pjs and crocks with them in public!I get glares from people all the time...its hilarious. Sometimes you would swear i time traveled...depending on my mood the era changes...80's are my fave though

the fashion crime i love to see at work is the matching family outfits.....i used to work at a resort in coffs harbour and one family has been etched in to my memory, everyday they had matching outfits, i'm not talking t-shirt and shorts matching, i mean white linnen pants baby pink polo shirts beige loafers, the next day beige 3/4pants and white polos, the next day navy blue pants and stipped t's it was just a beauty to behold, or the father and son (about 14ish) i saw at maccas walking to their car, shorts just the same, same joggers and socks pulled to the same level, polos tucked in and belted with matching dad and son belt, and exact same hair cut...alone they'd of looked fine but as a matching pair.they looked so nerdy that i wanted to tease them my self, then i saw them get into their car with the sticker "smoke free zone, please don;t smoke within 15 mts of this car" and decided i probally wouldn't need to bully them myself....but i must admit this is one crime i am guilty of at times, i went out with my little one last week dressed alomst the same, jeans black longsleeve t-shirt, ballet slippes and a crochet cardi, i just looked and laughed (then ditched my cardi)

i agree loreen a perfect strange doesn;t know you enough to say anything or even know what to say, BUT thats why everyone should have great girl friends, so you don't pick up ugly men and wear jeggings and uggs out in public, check the camel toe and make sure you don;t have loo paper tucked into your undies and hold your hair when you vomit, lol such female bonding moments-lol

I actually do think people can wear whatever they like as long as they are confidant , it has nothing to do with what I like or MY taste , I mean I dont like the G string over the jeans thing BUT if it makes her feel sexy or confidant more power to her , in the end your clothes are an extension of self they are a form of self expression , really who are we to say what people should or shouldnt wear .

My husband likes to wear socks with thong flip-flops. So does my mother.



Ew!



I also have a serious issue with women wearing bras with too small cups. Then they end up with quadra-boobs.

I was in Lane Bryant last weekend and they still have faux leather SKINTIGHT leggings with studs near the ankles!
My best friend tried them on just because and I slapped her. ;)

I remember when Lane Bryant put out the faux leather pants which were totally skin tight. I remember thinking how wrong that was then and how wrong it is now.

[deleted account]

Nah, Kate's too classy to wear that dress. It suited the early 80s new romantic era but it would look ridiculous now!

[deleted account]

people wearing leggings as shorts people wearing jeggings (are you for real) people wearing high waisted short shorts with tights...its not a skirt honey and yes i can still see your arse cheeks theyre just several shades darker than the rest of you. my sister's green check plus fours with matching vest (although it goes with her quirky sense of humor) leotards! the only time you should EVER wear leotards is if you're swimming or a ballet dancer. double denim too ohhh and they tried to bring it back along with puffy sleeves and last but not least and i will get crucified for this...Lady Di's wedding dress...it looked like a meringue there was even an april fool's joke suggesting kate middelton would wear it...god i hope she doesn't

too true loreen, i just love sitting and watching......and it doesn't take long and someone walks past that just makes my day...(and i am sure others would say the same about me) and while about now a pair of uggs would be welcome, i refuse to buy a pair just incase i fall too much inlove with them and start wearing them with everything, everywhere, i can't stand when people where them to a pub, can you imagine how bad a ugg full of old beer would smell!!!

[deleted account]

There is a woman who lives around here. She's short, obese, looks like a bulldog ... and likes to wear see through leggings with denim short shorts (2 sizes too small) teamed with Uggs, and very low cut vests.
It's a very attractive look..../:-(
