In the beginning this post was supposed to be about guys buying bright colorful pants - especially jeans, which look like they are puking with colors (pants, not guys). But I've noticed that it's not only about guys, but people in general...
World of fashion is accepting almost everything and all kinds of weird clothes are approved, because probably everything was shown in this mad mad world - starting from sneakers with LED lighting, ending with outfits made from meat. There are almost no no-noes and everything is accepted, because It's fashion. Let them be. I'm a really tolerant person (hm... actually I'm not)/I don't care about lots of stuff and people, who are simply trying too hard by pushing borders further and further while wearing shocking garment. They can count on only one thing from me: WHATEVER, because it's really hard to shock anyone nowadays (thank you, Lady Gaga and other celebrities).
Popularity of certain, strange things rather makes me curious, so here goes first weird tendency, that makes me curious: Why people are buying (and wearing) pants/ jeans so colorful that it would probably be a shame to force miserable clown to wear them?
I remember the era of guys buying skinny, red jeans inspired mostly by skinny guys singing sad songs in indie bands/guys from weird rock bands, but I thought that we were over it. Few years back another event occurred - the pastels trend (this one should be read with the spooky/creepy voice) was really on - and that's when a lot of ladies reading colorful magazines jumped into pastel blue/pink/green skinny pants. Probably the mint ones were the total must have. Pastels are usually back every Spring season, but it looks like since few years pastel/colorful pants are here to stay. And my incomprehension doesn't come from the fact that I'm almost not wearing colors and my wardrobe is mostly black and white and gray - it comes from the fact, that I can't treat people with legs looking like french fries or mint ice seriously. In my opinion bright colored pants are reserved for kids only, to enjoy being little, colorful creatures before they find out how much better toned down colors look on your trousers. Don't get me wrong - I totally accept and sometimes even enjoy wearing tops in pastel/bright colors, but pants are a no-no. And believe me - high-street brands are going crazy with the design - I saw all wrong kinds of mentioned before skinny jeans - baked beans/stonewash purple/puking with green colors etc. or chinos in colors so bright, that they could work as a traffic lights. I can't even imagine what kind of crazy designer is the person, in whose mind these ideas pop up.
Another thing: would you even consider asking out a person wearing it's kind of a joke pants? Because I personally think that it's -100 points to sexiness. And don't give me the talk about not judging others by their appearance, because people are visualizers and the first thing we notice is people's look, not the list of the favorite books or movies. Unless life is hiding some skills from me.
Plus - as a person working in retail I've seen so many crimes committed against pants - just imagine a 60 year old guy reaching for a pair of blue skinny jeans dye peach (with reflections of blue still visible of course). Some gonna call me intolerant or close minded person, but just try to imagine your dad wearing these. How is it? Not fun at all, huh?
So what is it about? Are people trying damn hard to stay young by wearing weird pants (note, it's working the other way around)? Do people just like ridiculousness? What is in these horrid creatures that I see a lot of people buying them? Is it only me not treating fans of colorful bottoms seriously? Is it just my sense of style and everything is allowed for everyone?
Satisfy my curiosity, please!
