Fashion is the ultimate shell game, new stuff comes out 4 times a year, it's the same shit that came out around that time last year but these morons don't want to be seen dead wearing the same thing twice.

It's insane. And inane.

It's neophilia/paleophobia.

And you find it in a lot more than just "fashion"...

Oscar nails it as usual......

Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months.

Well its like Dave says innit, people worry to much about what others think. So we dress like everyone else.
So i guess the question could be, if you could wear anything you wanted to on your way to work or whereever, what would it be?

I would probably go a bit punk and write stuff on my clothes, "Fuck the NWO" and stuff like that.

It's weird that there's so many attention seekers out there, yet so few eccentric or individual dressers.

In my own house I'd be quite happy to pop my head through a bin bag and walk round in that, or even wear nothing if it is warm enough.
Yup, me too! I still have stuff from at least 10 years ago, still good to wear!

If more people took to darning & sewing, instead of throwing and buying new, they would find great satisfaction AND save money to boot!

If anyone really does need new stuff there is loads given away on freecycle, or head down to your local jumble sale, fill up a bin bag for £1

Actually i think you will find these started out as practical winter footwear - for INDOORS - in countries with cold winters - the idea was hijacked by the high street!

Uggs

Quote:
Generally worn for warmth and comfort, Australian ugg boots had never been considered fashionable in their country of origin.[25] But the Deckers UGG brand emerged as a fashion trend in the US through Deckers' actions to promote it as a high fashion brand. Deckers solicited endorsements from celebrities such as Kate Hudson, Sarah Jessica Parker,[27][33] Cameron Diaz, Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Lopez,[34] and product placements in television series such as Sex and the City, and films such as Raising Helen.[25][35] This marketing campaign "led to an exponential growth in the brand's popularity and recognizability."[36] Oprah Winfrey received a free pair when her endorsement was sought by Deckers; she then bought 350 pairs for her entire production staff, and eventually featured UGG brand boots as one of her "Favorite Things" on her TV talk show in 2000.[37] Other actresses who discovered UGG brand boots through surf shops began wearing them.[30] The company reported US$689 million in UGG sales in 2008,[38] almost a 50-fold increase from 1995;[39] By 2012, worldwide sales of Deckers UGG boots were over US$630 million a year, with 95% of world market share. By way of contrast, ugg boots in Australia were worn predominantly as slippers and associated with "daggy fashion sense, bogan behaviour" and the "outer suburbs" when worn in public.[40][41][42][43][44] According to Australian fashion stylist Justin Craig: "The only people who get away with wearing them are models, who give out the message: 'I'm so beautiful, I can look good in any crap.'"[27]

I like to wear skin tight jeans and tops. Uggs, pumps and knee high boots also works. This is mostly what you can get in the shops today and you can get in quite cheap. I don't follow trends really, I never buy fashion magasines.

Nice, being relative, differs from year to year (for these people).

If there weren't trends in fashion there would be less choice in clothing for women and it would be a less interesting world.

Men however should stick to suits, jeans and shirts. Real men that is
You're right, fashion is mostly for women but I have seen some really crazy male fashion as well such as pink shirts that is considered fashion in sweden. I have even seen men wearing pink shirts here.

Shirt and jeans is trendy for men here.

I think we should just dress like we did in the ancient world. Men wear togas and women where white dresses. I would love running around in a white dress everyday.

I think you're lying about the socks unless you've given up finding pairs and wear odd socks everyday

They did that in Taiwan circa 2007. Pink shirts for men and green tops for women. J-pop is out to ruin all men's credibility.

Yeah, it's probably everywhere. I don't think men should wear pink but if they feel comforble in it, then why not.
