One shouldered sports bra by Alexander Wang, $58.00 at Opening Ceremony
Sports bras are ugly. I live for mine when I work out but it is not something I want to take out as a fashion statement. Wang had the brilliant idea of making an ugly, utilitarian undergarment even worse by making it outerwear and removing any function. How are you supposed to wear this? On the runway the pieces were styled in a way that would resemble an old timey hobo boxer if worn out in public.
Halter top by Maison Martin Margiela Line 6, $65.00 at Anastasia Boutique.
Line 6 is supposed to be Margiela’s least conceptual and most comfortable line. However, I am struggling to see how this is going to be comfortable. It would be impossible to wear this by itself, you may as well go topless. Then you are faced with figuring out undershirts and what looks good and what doesn’t because this can very easily look sloppy. I get that Margiela is all about taking clothing to the limits, but you gotta be able to wear it too.
Just want to say I am so sorry for ignoring the blog. My job is kinda hectic, I will manage my time better, I promise.
Satin pant by Sparkle & Fade, $58.00 at Urban Outfitters
Submitted by beckfast. Urban Outfitters describes these pants as “sleek”. Baggy polyester pants with an elastic waistband are the exact opposite of sleek, they are sloppy. Perhaps UO meant “shiny”, because they sure are shiny.
Submitted by Erica. Is it just me, or do those cartoon sharks look absolutely miserable? Perhaps they are miserable because they know their destiny is to adorn crotches. Topshop acknowledges that these are basically underwear by calling them “pants” (British for panties), but at the same time, they put them in the shorts section, meaning they are to be worn outside.
Submitted by Kevin. A few days ago, some friends showed me PajamaJeans. They were worried that this novelty lounge pant would make its way outdoors and be worn in public. I laughed off their fears, thinking it could never happen. Today, I received this submission and realized that I was very naive.
Terry shorts by Alexander Wang, $225.00 at Shopbop.
Ah, my first Alexander Wang post. He is one of the harbingers of this “dirty chic” trend that has taken the fashion blog world by storm. These cutoff sweat shorts epitomizes all that is terrible regarding this trend. Personally, I don’t I should be more offended by the aesthetics of them or that they cost 225 bucks.
