Fashion Friday; What NOT to Wear Edition

This week's Fashion Friday is brought to us by the very attractive women I spotted at the bank last week. Of course, you'd never have any clue how pretty she was, this middle-aged brunette who drove up and parked next to us and hopped out to use the ATM. I think she did have makeup on, and she covered what I think was a cute haircut in this odd skullcap...it wasn't even cold. I can forgive the hat, and I can even forgive the thrown-on hoodie. But no one should ever be allowed to go out in public with a body that great in jeans like these.

This woman's jeans were at least one, if not two, sizes too big for her. I don't know if she bought them that way or if perhaps she bought them when she was much heavier and she'd recently lost weight. Either way, she has a serious case of the droopy drawers. Look how baggy they are in the seat and thigh. This photo doesn't even do justice to the offensiveness of this fashion blunder.

Let's see how her jeans should have looked on her. Trust me when I say that under those clothes was a slender woman.
  

Note the fitted nature of these jeans in the entire thigh and butt. They do not have to be super duper skin tight, which would be immodest and unattractive. But they need to be fitted and not all saggy all over the place. I don't care if they are your favorite pair of hundred dollar plus premium denim jeans, if you lose weight you need a new pair. If you have questions about how to find a pair that fit your body properly, head down to your local Nordstrom store where you will find an associate totally trained in helping you find the perfect pair. I'm convinced it's not that difficult. The woman in this photo may have a severe case of pancake butt, but the right jeans with perfectly placed pockets will go a long way for her.

Don't commit a fashion felony by wearing droopy-ass jeans.

Oh my word, that could've been me! I'm a size 8 and the jeans always fit nice in the dressing room. I try to buy them a bit smug because I KNOW they stretch out during the day and then when I start wearing them they stretch out WAYYYYY too much and I end up with droopy butt jeans. SIGH.

I should do a whole post about where to find good, reasonably priced jeans. I found my faves, a pair of Lucky Brand jeans, at Ross for $32. I also swear by my Old Navy jeans which I pay $25 for and they DO wear out pretty quickly but man are they comfy and for that price I don't care if they wear out in a year.

Ok so this has happened to me too, but I was talking to an Ann Taylor store associate one time and she said you MUST buy your denim very tight because of how much it stretches out when you wear it.

THANK YOU!

LOL. Hilarious. (and great advice, as always!)

Mainline Mom said...

You're welcome :)

I tried. Once in a blue moon I can be funny.

Mainline Mom said...

Yes, please! I'd love a post on good, reasonably-priced jeans. I just lost some of my baby weight (woo hoo!) and have been holding back on buying new ones. Thanks!

I would love to see a post on jeans. And please tell me what jeans from Old Navy work for you. I have a pair of "sweetheart" and they fall off of me after 30 minutes on. If I go down a size maybe they would work? I refuse to send a ton of money right now because I am losing weight but my goodness, I look ridiculous!
