Where Are the Fashion...

Where Are the Fashion Police When You Need Them?

Sometimes it seems fashion is deliberately ugly, garish, and unflattering. The French even have a word for it—“jolie laide” (a woman who is both beautiful and ugly). However there’s nothing beautiful about these six fashions.

Uggs: I can’t think of a worse fate for women’s shoe fashion. Unless your name is “Bride of Sasquatch,” save the Uggs for house slippers—when nobody’s looking.

The Tent Dress: For a a few hundred years, dresses were designed to flatter the body until someone decided to screw it all up with something called a “Tent Dress.” This dress only works if you’re a cute three-year-old toddler—or Angelina Jolie.

Harem Pants: Two words: M.C. Hammer. I’m also including the occasional riding pants.

Shants: Sheer Pants. I have no words to explain this horror.

Jumpsuits: Some things are just better off in two pieces. The jumpsuit never really died, rather it’s been living in purgatory, constantly haunting us.

Crocs: Only to be worn by children under eight ... otherwise can be used as birth control.
