I’m pretty tolerant when it comes to clothes. I’m the type who’d just live and let live whenever I see something outrageous on the streets/school hallways. However, there are just a few things in life I don’t understand. Are humans still evolving, and is bad taste in fashion part of it?
Today’s Special: Shorts with the pockets hanging out
Am I the only ones to notice how hideous these things are? Isn’t this considered a faux-pas anymore? Honestly, this look has been around for about 3 years now, and all this time I’ve been waiting for the trend to just hang itself and die. But no~
BUT. THOSE POCKETS. No matter how short my cutoffs got I always remembered to tuck/ trim and sew the pockets in. It’s actually a sign of when I have to throw them out — when half the pocket flap is already showing. I don’t know what these kids are thinking, but there is nothing pretty about showing pocket flaps on purpose.
Whenever I see these on the streets, my scissors itch to cut a hole on the pocket flap so that whatever change they have in there would fall out. Oh, I forgot, it’s fashion faux pas to put anything in your pockets (they bulk up your silhouette, so they say. WTF are pockets for now???)
Who invented these things? I’m guessing it’s some high fashion designer from an RTW collection I missed (Wang?) Please tell me so I can give him a serious beating.
Not only can you achieve the look with some old jeans and a pair of kitchen shears, but wanting those pockets in particular is beyond me. Why would anyone want to buy these things??? WHY???
All photos from Lookbook.nu but I was nice enough to crop and not reveal their faces.
