Good. The current trend where people are wearing pants to halfway up the chest is stupid and ugly.

Yes, but only sort of.  You're not old enough for this to have been the fashion during your formative years.

//Low rise jeans only look good on very skinny people.
//Most teenagers these days don't fall into this category.

I hate low-rise jeans.  They are not made for curvy women, or women with booty.  They dont even cover up my bum, and thats with my correct size!   *shakes head*   I wont be buying these, again.

You do know you can wear what you want, right?

We don't have a national uniform system.

I don't get it.  They actually showed videos of people (sorta) panicking.

Just... wear what you find comfortable and good looking?  Try that?

What about apple bottom jeans and those  boots with the fur?

30-something Millenials need to stop trying to be hip and with it.  Their time is over.

Millennial here.

Why do I need to repeatedly change fashions?  Why am I expected to buy new cuts and styles?

My pants aren't worn out.

Most/Many teenages didn't fall into that category back in the late 90s/early 00s either.  "Muffin top" was a not-uncommon phrase back then.

Those are so last year.  This year it's all about the Reebok's with the straps.

You know that some of us Millennials are pushing 40, right?  But alright, fine, I'll pull them on. The top is the best part of the muffin anyway.

Gay people, people of color, and  minorities are just a few examples I can think of.

I despise all fashion trends. People should wear what they want, when they want as long as it's appropriate for the location and event. In other words don't wear a bathing suit at a funeral.

All jeans are "low rise" if you don't have a discernible buttocks to hold them up.

Finally. I've been waiting for this style to come back. I'm looking forward to a summer of 'exposed midriffs' and muffin tops.

It's because low-rise jeans look terrible on people with larger waistlines, and people in 2020 overall have larger waistlines than they did in 2000.  It's easier to change fashion than it is to find and stick to fitness goals.

Welcome to middle-age.  This is where your fashion sense just freezes, you can only hope that it doesn't happen in too silly of a fashion trend.

//Also if you haven't tried sushi by this point, you'll always be afraid of it.

I feel like I'm from another planet when I see articles like this. I'm pushing 40 and I don't care about any of this nor did I 20 years ago.

I'm 43, but I have to acknowledge that sometimes, clothing which doesn't fit is f*cking hot.

You're a lot more fun in threads about old music. Post an old tune for a whirl, eh? Hit up those vinyls and send us something from the 60s or 70s.

As for the topic, I just realized I have surpassed the age where "mom jeans" are really comfortable and I don't care what anybody thinks of how I look in public. That's right, millennials are wearing mom jeans and we don't care.

Just so long as we stop the whole "thick" nonsense.  If your beauty standards are attainable, what's even the point?

I don't like wearing hats to begin with, and I don't like the brim blocking my range of vision.

I'm not wearing the damn hat to keep the sun out of my eyes, I'm wearing it because sometimes I'm out the door without dealing with bed head.  I'm lazy efficient.
