    I like minimalism but I think my heart is much more fond of intricacy and craft combined with shape and volume--to me that's purity at its best. And flamboyant,it isn't always. Sometimes those things are quite simple. In fact,they are depending on shape and structure. I just think that you appreciate things with a bit more 'visible' character,Beki,as do I.

    or perhaps we can all carry a small pair of scissors and snip anything that shouldnt be showing.

    fashion no no's-

    -bell bottom sleeves anyone? ICK

    AND the peasant look was way too overdone this year.

    My fashion no-no's
    Bell-bottoms
    Anything that is fluorescent
    Anything trashy
    Anything that Britney, Xtina Aguilera or Paris Hilton would wear

    Overdone trends that look like fancy dress.

    eg.

    I am pocahontas
    I am a showgirl
    I am a cowgirl
    I am a peasant

    Beware originality. In fashion it leads to costume. I think Diane Vreeland said that.

    I don't like thongs showing either. or customised jeans - esp. with bits of lace on.

    But what I hated most was the drawstring cargo pants (the ones that pull up like festoon blinds) with high heels. Its one of those trends that might look good now, but if you see a picture of it in 5 years, you'll wet yourself laughing at it.

    Absolutely! :sick:
    I am proud to say I have never owned a pair! :p Unfortunately there are still people wearing them here :sick:

    Other bad trends:
    - the 80's revival thing that has been going on the past year (fluorescent plastic etc)
    - the peasant trend of 2002, cute at the time but sooo overdone!

    Fleece is a must for a lot of outdoor activities but shouldn't be worn everyday. A lot of poeple around here dress as though they're going camping. :yuk:

    - Thongs that are apparent when you bend over (esp. when wearing extremely low rise jeans)
    - Platforms (any)

    - anything that looks like it should be on a 5-year-old, not an adult

    - girls dressing like guys (okay, I'm just bitter that I wasted 4 months on this terrible stage :innocent: )

    from a male POV i absolutely hate trucker hats on women, especially when they have no style to begin with and think i can plop this huge ugly hat on my dome and im trendy.....

    For men id have to say skinny suits are pretty bad. i prefer a single breasted jacket with a thin long lapel but some of helmut langs designs look like they just dont fit. The inch wide tie has to go as well.

    just my .02 cents

    The early ninties - it's what you get when drastically OTT 80s attempts to mesh with the new ideal of radical minimalism. :sick:
    ETA: Spice-girl platforms!!! eeeeeeeek!
