Pants. No question.

Stirrup pants.


Everything in camo print.

And jodhpurs.

1. Flip flops worn as shoes! (and then complaining about cold feet when wearing them in the winter). Keep em at the beach, pool, or home!
2. Overalls on adults and those who are not working on a farm! (but they are cute on little ones!)

Second the turtleneck and stirrup votes. Midriff tops (because most of the populace SHOULD NOT WEAR). Jeans that create the muffin top. Hammer pants. Anything neon for people over age 12. All the cheap crap they sell at Walmart and Forever 21.

On related note, highly recommend this book:

Leggings as pants.
Leggings as pants worn with UGGs.

Also, too - Kiltie tassel loafers, and any loafers that result in toe cleavage.


What's that thing about prying my turtlenecks out of my cold dead hands? I wear them, one of many layers, nine months out of the year, cuz I haz a neck owie. There is a horrible design flaw, you are right. I am a little dinky person and I have to buy a womens large or a mens medium to get the sleeves to come to my wrists and the neck not to throttle me.
I wouldn't ban anything because I like everything, even the really absurd stuff that makes no sense.

I see Dr A has already listed mine (flip flops), but I would also add thongs…especially when worn with pants low enough to show the thong. The other fashion wrong is not so much what is worn, but how; what's with the guys that wear pants so low that their ass is hanging out. I'm thankful that fad is fading, but ew!

Ties and flip flops.


Ditto on the Crocs and jeggings. Fashion travesties.

You're asking **me** for fashion advice ?

Fashion transvestites, Steller? What other kind is there?

Oh. Wait.


Quasi-relatedly, there's currently an ad in the right column for "the world's largest online leggings superstore." I've got an eye for bidness, but that one slipped right through my blind spot.
