I have to agree with this. First of all, no man ever looks good in skinny jeans. Not one single man. Now, women CAN get away with wearing them if they fall into one of two categories: 1) tall, slender, with long legs. OR... 2) Very petite

Don't worry, smitch, from your photos it looks like you are tiny enough to get away with this.

Unfortunately, curvy women (and I do mean curvy and not overweight as this term has come to mean) have a very hard time pulling off skinny jeans because they make their butts and thighs look bigger than they are.




As far as 90's fashions go, does anyone remember the overalls with the flannel shirt tied around the waist? That's was certainly a look. Really high waist jeans with a t-shirt tucked in was also a popular look that I really don't care for.

My DD10 loves her skinny jeans and they look good on her. However for me, they are a no go. I have thighs and a butt and they are not meant for anyone over 110 pounds!

Now the overalls were a look I loved and totally rocked! I wore those suckers all the time with my flannel shirt! In the summer I would take an older pair and cut them into shorts and wear a tank top underneath. I actually still have a pair from college that I wear around the house when I am painting. They have splatter marks all over them and look like they came straight out of 1985.

Another one I remember from my senior year, 1991- black tights under denim shorts with black Doc Martens! We all thought we were so stylin!

Would never wear again: Pumps in every color of the rainbow, worn with business suits. Panty hose

What I wish would come back is big hair! I had the best biggest hair, it gave me an extra 3-4 inches in height!

That one is making a comeback. No idea why, but I've seen it a lot lately. I refuse to wear them, even if it means not being able to buy pants or shorts again until it dies out, lol.

90's fad...rolling and folding up the bottom of your pants to make them tight to your ankle.

Another 90's fad, dressing up even for school. I graduated in 91 and all thru the yearbook we are all in skirts and dresses or in jeans overalls with plaid shirts.

90's again...silk vests and of course Bass Bucks shoes. I did love my bucks, super comfy andd I'd be happy for them to come back.

Does anyone remember the rainbow suspenders that Robin Williams wore on Mork and Mindy? Those were hugely popular when I was in Junior High [late 70s/early 80s]. I finally talked my mom into getting me a pair . . . and by then it was already out of style.

And the worst by far is leggings. Now they can look cute under a nice long sweater however I see most people wear them as pants. Ladies, leggings are not pants and even if you are a size 0- you do not look good wearing them like they are
Thank you!

Say it with me folks... LEGGINGS ARE NOT PANTS!!!

Thank you! I am one who does not look good in them and it is so hard to find normal jeans that fit. And people wonder why I don't wear jeans anymore.

Now that makes me happy. Except for the tucking shirt in bit. Think I will skip that trend.

I do! I was thinking a few years ago that Mork would be a good adult costume for Halloween, IF you could find some of the suspenders .

I remember wearing lots of body suit shirts in the 90's, so they stayed tucked into the higher waisted jeans. what a pain to go to the bathroom

Poodle perms! OMG. I kept my hair in a tight perm through most of the 80s. I look at my pictures not and my hair looks awful. The perms always reddened my dark hair and it didn't look natural. I have very straight hair, without an inch of curl. When the perms grew out, the hair would be very straight for about 1-2" either side of my part, so the top of my head looked flat. The only way to fix is was--wait for it--MORE PERM.

Polyester!!! It was all the fad when I was in my teens. Leisure suits and then the silky patterned shirts that went with them, and they were strange patterns. What were we thinking?

I think my biggest fashion regret was the powder blue tux with ruffled shirt I had my husband wear when we got married though. Not a good look at all.
