Fashion trends annoy me for the most part anyway, but there are certain trends that just piss me off. For example ‘knicker shorts’ or ‘crop tops’. These are things that are made for size six models, yet the average girl who decides to wear them is about a size fourteen. There is absolutely nothing wrong with being a size fourteen, but if I can see your ass cheeks, then you have a problem.
The most recent one thought is the cross. In every mainstream clothes shop there seems to be a section held only for religious memorabilia. Chains, earrings, bracelets, belts, tops, dresses, shorts ect. You name it, they stuck a cross on it. Or those bracelets that have pictures of saints on them. Now I’m not a religious person, so I would never buy a bracelet with pictures of saints on it. So obviously everyone who buys these accessories, they must be deeply religious, right? They have to be God fearing Christians, don’t they?
No. Just plain old hypocrites.
You ask anyone wearing one of these bracelets to name a single saint wrapped around their wrist and all you will get is silence. You ask them what the significance of the crucifix is and you will probably get ‘What’s a crucifix?’ These people don’t go to church and I’m pretty sure that they have never opened a bible. Having a cross on shorts that would be inappropriate to put on a five year old, that’s got to be some kind of blasphemy right? I’m pretty sure that if there was a God, he wouldn’t want the symbol of his sacrifice to the world stamped across the ass of some girl being sick in the corner of a night club.
I don’t have a problem with people wearing what they want to wear, whatever makes them feel more like themselves. But why do people follow fashion trends so blindly? The ridiculous things that you see in shops these days, laughing, telling yourself that no one would ever possibly wear these things or agree with that ludicrous price tag. But I see them everywhere. Six months ago, if I had walked up to a girl on the street and told her to wear a PVC, transparent shirt, I would have been slapped in the face. But if it’s in the new arrivals rack in Top Shop, it’s absolutely gorgeous.
I have to sit through looks of disgust when I wear fishnet tights with a knee length skirt and a t-shirt. And these looks are normally given by girls who have only covered the bare minimum, so they don’t have to admit that they are actually naked. You wouldn’t walk outside your house in your bra and underwear, so why walk outside in ‘knicker’ shorts and a bando? Why is that acceptable?
If you’re going to spend an inordinate amount on clothes, make sure you buy them with the intention of wearing them for as long as possible, not just as long as everyone else is wearing them. I thought girls hated being in the same room as anyone who was wearing the same outfit. Solution - don’t buy the same outfit.
