Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society.
So true, other than the commotion a naked person would immediately receive, they really do have little influence on society. I am often appalled by the upheaval and snarkiness over what celebrities wear, who cares??! ...Well, apparently lots of people do or they wouldn't report on it, and start new trends from it. I am just saying...there is a balance, somewhere between "Do not worry about what you will wear" and "Clothes make a man".
I was in Ross the other day,because my daughter that just moved here is constantly cold. Moving from San Diego up here will do that to a person. So off we went to try and find warm clothing. As I walked towards the checkout lines I noticed a young woman in flannel plaid pajama pants. I have never fully understood the trend, but let the girls wear PJ bottoms to school long ago...I mean, they are pants after all, not a slip, or negligee. This woman however, was not in high school, perhaps college, but seemed even a bit old for that. The PJ bottoms in question were enormous on her. She had a little figure under there somewhere but they made her look huge, shapeless, and frankly, like she had a load in her pants (not to be gross). It was so unflattering that I truly wanted to snap a photo on my phone and SHOW her! I didn't, I restrained myself.
I have been taking notice to women's rears lately...not like that...in the sense of what is flattering and what isn't. Have you looked at your rear in the mirror lately? I have noted that many pants are simply not flattering on women. You read that right. Skirts are completely more flattering, and all you need to do is look around a bit , you'll see. Skirts, if worn correctly and aren't super tight,skim the figure, flattering the curve without showing any bulges or bumps,ripples, or jiggle. I am not going to switch altogether, especially with winter approaching, but I am going to carefully consider what I wear and how it looks from behind.
