I was reading The Pixelated Blonde recently and she had linked to an article that was about fashion trends that women love, but men hate. You can read the original article here. I thought I'd share with you my personal opinion on the items on the list, and then get a guy's perspective on the items. Who knows, if we get good feedback from having a guys perspective, we mught turn it into a regular feature!! The fellow I'm getting to help me on this is my very good friend, Mo, and I owe him an ice cream for doing this!
Me: Lots of women do look great in them, but then again, lots of women can't pull it off either. I have seen a lot of fellow bloggers looking good in them, but so many people just look bad. I think this is one of those trends that only looks good if you're wearing them right.
Mo: "What the hell are you wearing?" That was my first thought when I saw these pants. I cant see the fashion sense or the hot look behind these pants. It looks weird and very uncool. Why would a girl want to wear that is beyond me.
Me: See, I quite like these. I'm not a fan of the ones that are trousers, but I do like the ones with shorts. They seem really comfortable and I think that they look really cute. I'm currently on the hunt for one. (Tesco have a lovely one right now, and I'm waiting for it to come in stock in my size!!)
Mo: When I first saw the jump suit, I hated the fact it made a pretty girl look undesirable. Then I learnt that there are two kinds. The long jump suit is a complete turn off but the short jump suit is a turn on because legs are hot and with the short jump suit we can see hotness.
Me: Nope: not a fan. I'm sure they're comfortable, but I'm not a fan of how they look. They do make women appear shorter and with stubby legs. What I really don't like is them worn with sweats and I also don't think they need to be THAT expensive.
Mo: No. It's cute on little children not fully grown adults, thats just wrong.
Me: I quite like the big fancy ones that can be worn at weddings and occassions, and I like plain black ones that no one can tell when I'm wearing. Apart from that, I'm not a fan of them in everyday life. When I put things in my hair, I like them to be as discreet at possible.
Mo: Theres nothing right about these, fix your hair properly if you want to look good. Do not just throw something random on it and think it looks good.
Me: I think they can look really really cute and are such a pretty summer shoe to have.
Mo: The after effect are horrendous but I must say when their on they make feet look good. Chubby feet look so much slimmer on a gladiator sandal. The tighter, the better and it does make feet look slimmer and sexier.
Me: I think I must be the only female who doesn't own a pair of them. Women often wear them as trousers, and I don't think it's a good look, especially when worn with really short tops. Lots of people also wear them as tights, and what I really want to say is: 'Wear tights instead'. I mean they are pretty pointless to wear as tights as the bottom few inches of your legs will still get cold.
Mo: Not every one can look good in them, but either way its not very desirable. For some too much cellulite is shown and that is a complete turn off; whilst others show everything in all the right places but where's the fun in that and the imagination. Thats why leggings are a turn off.
Me: Why a woman would wear one is beyond me. I'm not a fan of women in full suits anyway; when I wear work trousers, I'll pair them up with a feminine blouse, rather than the matching blazer. They're just so unflattering.
Mo: Men look great in a Tux, James Bond any one ? and as Matt Smith from Dr. Who keeps stating "Bow Ties Are Cool". So this fashion trend in women wearing the penguin suit is completely inappropriate. This must stop and yes it is not hot!
Me: Eugh: I wore them as a child and I'll probably make my kids wear them as well, but I don't like them on adults. They just don't look good at all, unless you're like painting a house or something.
Mo: Unless you live in a farm, I do not see why there is a need to wear this unfashionable clothe. Most guys assume you must be a pregnant lady to wear a dungaree, especially the jeans ones.
Me: Not a fan. I have a small head so if I wore these, they would actually cover my whole face. I'm not a fan of really large bug eyed ones on other girls either: sunglasses do not need to be that big.
Mo: Unless you have a small head, these glasses tend to enlarge a girls head. Also there is a problem with not looking in to a girls eyes. The eyes are sexy so why hide them under those enormous sunglasses?
So there you have it: fashion trends from both a guys and girls view. What do you think about these items? And would you all like more 'guy's perspective' posts?
