Montage of Misshapen Muffin-Topped Maidens

It’s almost fall-fashion time, and, unfortunately, my 2013 post on idiotic style is still relevant. Don’t let “fashion” dictate your look. Rise above the ill-clad crowd and look taller by wearing your garments at the actual waist, which is located about an inch above the navel.~~M-J

Elegant Survival

Why go around short-legged, double-gutted, and half-assed when you could simply wear your trousers or pants at the waist, solving  all three self-imposed problems at once?  Ridiculously high heels don’t help.
Since 2006, I have been writing about the sort of misguided clothing-choices pictured in this photo-montage. Garments that only rise to that area just above the groin cause both the grotesque “Muffin-Top” and the risible anomaly known as “Plumber’s Crack”, yet every year, THEY’RE BA-ACK!  Resist sinking into fashion-victimhood, and stop risking your pants falling down. Wear your pants, trousers and skirts up at the waist,
and you will not look this idiotic. SIMPLE, isn’t  it?

Fashion Failure

If you wish to be well-dressed, make certain that you know the names of clothing features, and are familiar with basic human anatomy. Here is a woman (“celebrity stylist”) whose recommendations for winter style include a ridiculous pair of pants or trousers that barely cover the pubic region, which she mysteriously labels “the waist area“.  And imagine the Plumber’s Crack that must be visible at the back. No wonder so-called celebrities look so hideous!

QUOTE from the woman who is promoting
this tragic garment:
“These are the best fitting corduroys I’ve come across. They’re extra long—which I love because I’m tall—and fit perfectly in the waist area. The vintage shadow color, which is a beautiful gray, is a great alternative to traditional denim, and the corduroy texture is so exactly right for this time of year.”
The waist is located an inch above one’s navel. These trousers don’t even come close.
