I haven’t been very excited about the September fashion magazines nor the fall fashion shows this year. The fantasy of wearing a beautiful couture dress just doesn’t resonate with me right now. Part of it is that I think many of the designers are just recycling old ideas, and part of it is that the whole fashion show by season is becoming a means to make big bucks rather than focusing on artistry, fine tailoring, and style.
There are some fall fashions that just irritated me this go-round. First, there were some bad interpretations of peplums. To wit, Christian Dior. I don’t find the shape of this top flattering, and the two fabrics seem haphazardly put together.
Catherine over at Inside-Out has written a post about her dislikes this season – shin guards, mohair jumpsuits, and shapeless outfits.
What are your least favorite fashions, either now or in the past? Any elephant bell bottoms in your history?
