What is with the whole showing underwear thing? Believe me, I'm Italian, I am a firm believer in pretty underwear. I'm not exactly a prude, either. However I don't believe you should show it to the world. Even Carrie was reluctant to go out in her underwear, and they were D&G!
Problem #1: young men wearing their jeans really low and showing their boxers. I don't know who gave them the idea that this looks good – it really doesn't. I don't want to see your boxer shorts. Pull up your pants!! (And if you don't, you'd better not move to Louisiana.)
Problem #2: super-duper-short skirts/dresses. I mean, that's taking "mini" to a whole other level. The dress Lindsay Lohan wore at the MTV Awards last year? Lovely, but way too short. Are we really surprised that we managed to get a good look under her skirt? Although at least this time she was wearing underwear. But still, did we need to see that? (Hormone-crazed teenage boys, this isn't for you to answer.) I think not.
More: just today, going through my e-mail, I saw two photos, from two different fashion blogs/websites, with gals wearing super-short dresses that I'm pretty sure gave onlookers a good idea of what they were (or were not) wearing.
Example #1: straight out of the latest WhoWhatWear newsletter
Their suggestion: wear trendy accessories with great basic pieces.
What they forgot to add: you know what's a great basic piece? Pants.
Example #2: from today's Shopbop's* Stylefile
Their tip: you've got it, flaunt it.
What they forgot to add: by "legs" we mean the part below your butt. Our model here is actually still getting dressed.
I mean, really.
I do admire these girls for being proud of their bodies, and I understand if people want to live by the old
*I still love you, Shopbop. This is by no means a reflection of how much you rock. Or maybe it is, just a little ;-)
