Which women fashion do you hope would be utilized more in 2014, minis, skinny jeans, bra abandonment, yoga pants, or leggings as pants?

Asked by Hypocrisy_Central (21749 points ) December 31st, 2013

disclaimer Ending the year on a high note, those of you who care not for questions of the likes you’d find in many women’s magazines, feel free to gripe, quip, or make snide comments, or you can actually answer the question.

The title says it fairly completely, which fashion trend (for lack of a better word) would you like to see females use more in 2014? If you would rather not see any of the above mentioned, why are you reading this question?

Happy New Year Fluther, my 2013 exiting gift to you all LOL

I would like women to actually utilize clothing that is appropriate for their body types, regardless of what that is lol

No clothes too small and shit hanging out everywhere. I hate that.

None of the ones you mentioned. Skinny jeans are very popular as it is. Leggings as pants should be banned. Yoga pants are for exercise or lounging around the house. I have no opinion on minis. Lastly, my bra is staying put – there’s nothing classy about showing the world your nipples through your top.

I’d like to continue seeing riding boots, volumized hair, and natural makeup looks. I’d like to see fewer girls with middle parts.

Now for the part I may get shit for – I’d like for short shorts to not be sold in any size over 12. Curvy girls are beautiful, but short shorts were made for a certain body type. Wear clothes that are flattering for your shape.

Something we can partly agree on, however, I would modify it to not larger than size 8.

Snuggy and Pajama Jeans.

@Hypocrisy_Central Partly is right. This woman is a size 10. She can wear short shorts every day as far as I’m concerned. I’m a size 4/6 and I’d kill for her legs.

I actually have no preference. I want women to wear the most revealing fashion they feel comfortable wearing.

amujinx's avatar

I’ll agree with @poofandmook, people need to figure out what fashion they can pull off and go with it. For example, I think the vast majority of people I’ve seen in skinny jeans cannot actually pull off the look.

^ Rules of skinny jeans:

1. They’re called skinny jeans for a reason. These jeans are simply not flattering on overweight girls.

2. Having an ass is a necessity. Your skinny jeans should not sag anywhere, but especially in the ass. If you’ve got no booty, skip these jeans.

3. They’re supposed to be tight, but not so tight you have a huge muffin top that makes you look way heavier than you are. Buy jeans that fit you.

4. Girls with legs that look like toothpicks should not wear skinny jeans. It just makes the legs look even more frail and scary-looking. Skip the skinnies and go eat a cheeseburger, please.

5. It takes a very special person to pull off sneakers with skinny jeans. Generally, they’ll make your feet look huge. Stick to cute flats or, even better, boots.

6. Men should NEVER wear skinny jeans. EVER! Only 1% of men are awesome enough to pull off the skinny jean. Chances are you’re not one of those men.

I would be happy if women and teen girls stopped going to Wal-Mart, 7 Eleven, and Safeway wearing pajamas.

@livelaughlove21 Agree with you on the boy shorts, agree 100% with the skinny jeans on men, ugh, some guys do NOT get how ugly it is on dumpy dudes…lol

@Hypocrisy_Central Dump the leggings, jeggings (they are not professional looking at all for normal business world imo), keep mini’s and bra’s please.

I’ve said before I am glad to be back in the land of casual and half naked. Florida anything goes, while we also have some very fashion forward people. Tennessee (where I just moved from) was more conservative and more worry. Not really worry for me, because I tend to dress with the important parts covered and I have a fairly average body. What I like about the sunshine state is people seem to be less critical of what others are wearing, I like that atmosphere.

Having said that, I am so glad the shrug sweater/jacket is gone, because it doesn’t look good on anyone, but that has been gone over a year now I think. I like leggings and yoga pants, as long as the fabric is thick enough that the cellulite isn’t obvious. Skinny jeans are a pain in the neck to get on and off and don’t look good on most people, but the people who can pull them off have at it.

I am very very very glad to see the heel height coming back down. Good riddance to 6 inch heel bullshit! I love heels, but it was ridiculous for several years.

livelaughlove21's avatar

@JLeslie I was listening to Ryan Seacrest and he was talking about the type of women’s shoe men hate most – his co-host said it had to be kitten heels and he agreed, but it was actually wedges. Then his co-host asked which heel height Ryan liked best, and 5 inches was the lowest option she mentioned. Psht! Four inches is as high as I’ll go. She said that 7 inch heels say a lot about a girl, namely “I may be too much for you to handle.” No shit…

fundevogel's avatar

I have defended heels and the ladies that wear them plenty here but the idea that heels 4 inches and higher set the bar is patently absurd. I where heels plenty, even on days where I’m on my feet for hours at a time sometimes, but heels that high are such showpieces they really aren’t constructed for normal activities like walking or standing for any length of time. I’m disgusted that a fashion that so impairs the ease of movement of its wearers would be so favored over fashions more condusive to every function.

THANK YOU @poofandmook! Dress for the body you have, not the body you want.

She might fair OK, certainly better than many but not as well as her, and certainly not as well as her.

livelaughlove21's avatar

@Hypocrisy_Central So the girl I linked shouldn’t be able to find short shorts in her size because she doesn’t “fair” as well as these skinny girls? I said what I did because there are options much more flattering on bigger girls, not because other people look better in them. Sorry, not all of us can be super models to please you. Shall we stop making certain clothes for unattractive girls as well, since pretty girls look better in them?

Your girls are cute, but neither is as fabulous as mine, size 10 or not. And mine probably wouldn’t insist on ordering nothing but a small salad sans dressing on a dinner date. How fun is that?

poofandmook's avatar

I am a size 12–14 and I wear skinny jeans. I am not skinny. But this time last year, I was a size 24–26. So I am going to wear the shit out of my skinny jeans and keep getting compliments on how awesome I look. And anyone who tries to say differently can kiss my formerly fat ass.

I am not saying she shouldn’t be able to find shorts in her size. Women who should be shopping at tent warehouses (yeah, I said it!) can find shorts; that don’t mean they look flattering in them.

I said what I did because there are options much more flattering on bigger girls, not because other people look better in them.
That makes for such a great nation; we can all have our opinions.

Again, you have your opinion. I would be with a woman who knows the secret: It is not what you eat, it is what you keep. You can eat anything and everything if you are active (and that is the operative word) to shed the calories, and sometimes it might mean producing some sweat. Anyhow, better to be with a date eating only salad than one with a feedbag.

@Hypocrisy_Central: your last sentence fills me with bile and loathing. That was so disrespectful I can’t even form words to tell you how much so.

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

^ I get that when slender women are spoken of as if they are all methheads, anorexic, or starving themselves to be that toned as if it were unnatural.

poofandmook's avatar

So, you have to be derogatory toward women who don’t kill themselves to be thin?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

^ Not all thin/slender/toned women had to kill themselves to be that way; it is a myth or urban legend at best. Just so you’d know.

Ugh, repugnant.

Simple. Take a photograph of yourself and get a copy of Photoshop and make your legs as thin as you’d like.

Not one single photograph you ever see in any magazine hasn’t been heavily modified. Every photograph in every sales flyer, advertisement or magazine is a total lie.

Unless I have access to the RAW file, I don’t believe any photograph on the Internet or in print.

Here’s just one example of what photo editing can do: http://jezebel.com/singer-gets-a-major-photoshop-makeover-in-music-video-1505054990

livelaughlove21's avatar

@Naked_Whale_Tamer The girl I linked looks like many size 10 girls I know. Yeah, it probably is Photoshopped, but my point is still valid. I used to wear an 8/9 and I certainly wasn’t too fat to wear short shorts. A girl can be a size 10 without looking bad in shorts.

I hope you don’t think it’s news that the photos we see in magazines are altered. Old news. It’s those altered photos that make girls think they need to be a size 2 to be attractive.

And you did not post the link? Shame on you! ~~

I would have to concur, as well as nice and petite everything else as well (No you did not hear me wolf whistle…...OK maybe a little)

My Yahoo Group is “prettygirlsoftheworld” in the Adult category. I suppose it is not difficult to find it when you access Yahoo Groups. I am 5’-3” tall and weigh 125–129 lbs. in near physique contest condition. With average bodyfat, I weigh 142–148 lbs.,but I am never that big lately. I have not been able to post a photo on here.

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

@BiZhen I have not been able to post a photo on here.
The only way to get photos on here is to copy and paste the page address to this tag ’“link”: http:put url to pic here’, putting the Address to the pic in the http: part of the tag, and make sure there are no spaces after the [:].

My Yahoo Group is “prettygirlsoftheworld” in the Adult category. I suppose it is not difficult to find it when you access Yahoo Groups.
Let you tell it. LOL Either I have not used Groups for such a long time, or that clue is about as easy to find as a needle in a stack of needles.

BiZhen's avatar

On the Yahoo Home Page, there is a list at upper left, and there are more items that can be accessed by clicking at the bottom. Then, you can find Groups. Look for adult and type in the name.
