More Fashion Bans That Should Be Legalized [LIST]
Wildwood’s ban on saggy pants went into effect today, meaning anyone caught on the boardwalk with their drawers on display can face up to a $200 fine.
It got me thinking about some other questionable fashion choices that should be made illegal.
1. Leggings So Tight We Can See Your Pink Leopard Print Thong
I love leggings and yoga pants as much as the next girl, but I don’t love reading the words ‘spank me’ in crystals on some other chick’s butt because her pants are see through. Here’s a tip: match your underoos to your too-thin cotton faves. Or better yet, go a size up and spring for the slightly more expensive pair that won’t leave you so exposed.
2. Unbuttoned shorts
This for some reason is a boardwalk staple. The look is usually comprised of a skimpy bikini covered up with a pair of tight shorts that are left unbuttoned and purposely flapped open. Is it for comfort or sex appeal? I’m not sure, but either way, there are way better options for both.
I will make one exception for these, and that is wearing them in privacy of your own home (or perhaps in a restaurant kitchen.) While I will agree that they are trying to do the same ugly-but-comfortable thing that Uggs can pull off, the difference is that Uggs keep your feet ridiculously warm and comfy in a way no other shoe can. My cushy black Reefs keep my feet completely comfortable and cool without looking like my foot got stuck in a kid’s toy.
4. Anything that shows your camel toe.
Put on a longer shirt, dammit. No one wants to see that.
(I know a lot of you will say fedoras should be on this list, but I love my hats, and I will never give them up!)
