Fashion crimes and pet peeves
If you could arrest three things in the fashion world for crimes against style/sanity/general-public-hygeine what would they be?

Personally I would ban the words, 'Strong', 'independent' and 'woman' from fashion advertising.

I would also burn the following fashion comparisons:

"modern yet feminine"
"feminine yet modern"
"strong yet feminine"

All a favorite of braindead fashion types (Glenda Bailey, Elizabeth Saltzman, Philip Bloch, etc., etc.)

I'd arrest anyone who says (blank color) is the new black.....god could we get more stereotypical empty-minded fashionista?

Also, I'd arrest anyone who perverts the word sexy to describe something heinously slutty and tasteless (like miss Lee-Simmons does oh so well in her interviews)..........it ruins the entire concept of sex appeal.

I can't even begin to answer this. To me, even some of the things you've posted above look good on certain people. It depends on the person, their personality, and how their clothes flatter their body type
