Top ten tuesday … fashions i just don’t understand

March 31, 2009 at 11:05 am (Top Ten Tuesday) (, )

Ok, so several of these I even participated in at one time or another but that still doesn’t mean I understand them!!  And I will provide the disclaimer that I’m not that trendy, not that fashionable & am in desperate need of some help from “What Not To Wear”, but still …

1.  Make-Up on Men – Mascara! Nailpolish!  Eyeliner!  I mean maybe, MAYBE, if you’re a rock star.  But even then, you need to really BE a rockstar, not a wanna be rockstar!

2.  Skinnny Jeans  – do they look good on anyone?!  And if you have to buy your skinny jeans in anything other than a size 2 then you don’t need skinny jeans!!!  Now my sister would claim that you do need skinny jeans for certain boots … that makes a little sense to me.  But otherwise, I think most people should just stay away from them!!

3.  Skinny Jeans on Men – enough said.

4.  Tank Tops with Scarves – this is actually the one that made me think of this Top Ten List.  A mother dropping off her son at preschool had this on this morning.  Is this in style?  Shouldn’t you just go for one or the other??

5.  Ugg Boots & Dresses – similiar to the aforementioned tank & scarf … isn’t this a total contrast of seasons!  Maybe it’s appropriate right now since it’s Spring but feels like 30 degrees in the mornings.  A lady was wearing this combo at church yesterday … I don’t get it!

6.  Tight Rolled Pants – yes, I participated in this during middle school, maybe elementary … I’m not exactly remembering correctly.  I know it was around for a little while.  I’m sure it will come back in time for Megan or Evan to join in the fad!

7.  Tight Rolled Shirt Sleeves – as if the pants weren’t enough!

8.  Big Shirts – Did you remember wearing T-shirts 3 sizes too big for you??  I unfortunately do!

9.  Shana Sands’ Shoes (note:  this was NOT a halloween outfit!)

Shauna Sand

10.  Help me out – what fashion trends do you just not get?
