What the Well-Dressed Woman Will NOT Be Wearing this Fall

1. Any kind of trousers, pants, skirts or panti-hose that only come up to the hip. Haven’t we had enough of clothing manufacturers saving money on your back, not to mention Plumber’s Crack? Doesn’t anyone see how ridiculous they look?

2. Animal prints: why did they have to escape the  bowling alleys and trailer-parks and migrate into J. Crew? Was there really nothing else to do…?

3. Open-toed and peep-toed shoes, which are strictly for summer. And, of course, forget the sandals and flip-flops.

4. Bare ankles peeking out under what we used to derisively call “high-water” pants, trousers, and slacks. If ankles and parts of your calves are showing, your garment is too short and makes your legs look truncated. For a finished look, if not to protect your feet and shoes. you ought to be wearing some sort of hosiery (knee-length stockings are cheap and plentiful). Unless, of course, you are at a very sultry resort. Even then, I would restrict the bare-foot and bare-legged look to poolside. See my Bermuda Dress Code for elucidation on elegance at resorts.

5. Cargo pants…not even in the garden.

6. Empire “waists”–no matter what, they make a gal look preggers. See my article, “Where Is the Waist?”

7. Muscle-shirts and sleeveless dresses (not even in the garden).

8. Cap-sleeves, which make even the upper-arms of skinny chicks look fat.

To Be Continued…

…I mean but the low-hanging thereof. My photo shows elegant baggy or wide-legged trousers. Baggy pants, as in Oxford Bags, have been chic for decades in classic clothing. But, most people, when referring to the problem of low-sagging pants (trousers) just use the term, “baggy pants”. That’s really unfair, since what is being excoriated is the plumber’s crack, a source of derision for all times. What people abhor is the hideous sagging lowdown pants/trousers style. It really amounts to indecent exposure–someone’s underwear and opening showing in front, and whatever you wish to call it bared in the back–that’s the issue. Here is an article which I was sent by Sweden’s The Local–News in English:

Saggin’ and Caggin’*

There’s a distinction between “baggy pants” and trousers that are sagging under the underwear. Since when has it been all right to walk round in one’s jockey shorts? That’s where the hip-hop/”gangsta” emulators are wearing their trousers–hanging under what ought to be their private parts. Baggy pants, however, are explained and depicted below.
Here is a rap “song” I wrote last December 13th:

Wit my crotch at my knees

There’s no ball squeeze

Though my bad ass does freeze

And the ‘ho’s I want to please

Say I must have some fleas

I just cough and I wheeze

‘Cause my ass it does freeze

So, it’s cool, ya sees?

Wit my crotch at my knees

I’m the epitome of sleeze!

*Caggin’ is my husband’s French slang for sporting a “pantload”!
