fashion faux pas?

    I am by no means a fashion expert nor do I claim to be, but it has brought to my attention that some people are absolutely clueless about this. So i've compiled a few simple guidelines.

    - really thick gold of silver chains: I've addressed this issue before on this board, and I have to say "THIS LOOK IS NOT HAPPENING" I don't care what any rap stars say about the *bling bling* but a Fubu t-shirt with a really thick gold chain hanging on the outside just looks really lame. Some people choose to wear turtlenecks with their gold chains on the outside. I once saw a guy wearing a nice suit with a dress shirt buttoned all the way to the top and he had this hideous gold chain AROUND his collar. Not happening.:rolleyes:

    -black pants with white socks: if you wear black pants, put on some black socks, simple enough....

    -girls that wear caked on make-up: less is more. The caked on Tammy Faye Baker blowfish look is very unflattering.

    -guys at the gym that tuck their t-shirts into their track pants which also happen to be cranked up to their chest: I think this one speaks for itself.

    -long hair on guys: the 70's and 80's are over....time for a haircut

    -mulletts: same as above.

    -wearing a blazer or suit jacket with jeans and runners: sorry guys, the supply teacher looks is also not happening.

    that's all for now...feel free to post your own.

    keep in mind that these are all just personal opinions expressed in the name of fun and not to be taken in any sort of derogatory manner.

    Fubu makes me laugh. Also Hawian shirts are a little played out.

    Haha, that's funny cuz sometimes I buy those Calvin Klein 3 packs with one white one and when my laundry cycle is off, I freak out cuz I can't find black socks for my black pants.

    Oh well, sometimes it's fun to be Michael Jackson.

    The thing is I LOVE the bling bling shit in Britain. There are WICKED looking hip hopper/UK garage guys with gold teeth, really neato caps, leather jackets and gold chains. I think people in the Bronx pull it off pretty well too.

    I love a big mack daddy when I see one.

    But yeah, a guy in a suit with a dress shirt and a gold chain is a no-no.

    apparently k-mart and wal-mart had jeans with the boxers sewed on. Just to take all the guess-work out of wearing your pants low.

    How long are you talking?

    Because I find that everyones got that super short, comb to the front bangs up do lately, and everyone looks exactly the same.

    I will admit, I am growing my hair out, BUT, not too long, just a bit over my ears and stuff. I am trying to mimic Lloyd's hair off the TV show Undeclared.

    Oh man I almost forgot about hypercolour. I saw a woman wearing one on the Bathurst streetcar the other night, it made me smile.

    you know, this may sound REALLY snobby, but i just see SO many people that i really would LOVE to makeover. like they just have no clue. and wear things that are just wrong on so many levels. i by no means look fabulous all the time, but i'm pretty sure i don't look like an idiot....i dunno. it's all confusing to me.

    May I expand on this. White socks with anything other than Runners. If they're not running shoes, stray from the white!

    <---- hates white socks, period!

    Silverback TRIBE Member

    Huh? Sandles with socks are just wrong no matter what you're wearing.
  23. joey

    joey TRIBE Member

    sandles and jeans are wrong too...

    but if you are gonna be wrong don't be wrong twice..

    i think you have to wear socks with sandles but only when wearing pants
  24. Karim

    With the breathability of shoes nowadays, there is virtually no reason to wear sandles.

    Some sacrifices must be made in the name of fashion!!

    I've heard of sandals.

    What the hell are sandles?
