Your lifestyle, your quirk
I’m just going to come out and say it: I hate skinny jeans.
I don’t think anyone looks good in them, but I’m particularly hard on men. I don’t care how you’re built, how much you weigh, or how you accessorize the things. They never, ever look good. I’m sitting here in a coffee shop working on some pieces, and this very attractive fellow just stepped up to the counter. He’s wearing a plaid shirt, tan skinny jeans, and pink sneakers.
Pink sneakers? That’s two strikes.
I’m not overly fashionable. I like to look presentable, and I have a serious affection for eye shadow, but I’m not one to keep on top of trends unless they actually interest me, which is…almost never. The last trend I really got into was sublimation, and I’ve got plenty of dresses and a shirt in that vein. My point is that as long as you aren’t wearing a disco suit or those curtains Scott Disick was trying to pull off, I’m probably not paying attention to what you’re wearing.
Unless it’s skinny jeans.
I don’t know where this quirk of mine originated. I’ve never liked skinny jeans, even on women. I’m not talking about the skinny jeans that happen to be a size smaller than what you usually wear – literally the jeans you fit into when you’ve had a terrible stomach flu and are, well, skinny. I’m talking about those ridiculously painted-on things. A few years ago I was very, very skinny (some might say too skinny) and a friend gave me a pair.
I tried them on with a tank top and a jacket.
She clapped her hands when she saw me. “You look so great!”
I thought I looked ridiculous. I never wore them again.
I’m still staring at this guy in pink sneakers. Pink sneakers? Why, man, why? In what world are pink sneakers okay for anyone besides the lady who walks around with pink hair and a pink poodle? At least she’s color coordinated.
I admit I’m rather judgmental for someone working at a site called StyleQuirk. We’re all about self-expression here, including expression through your clothing choices, and if you must express yourself through denim that’s basically painted onto you, then by all means, do so. Just please, please, please, don’t pair it with sneakers.
