No one is suggesting no one should wear it but simply expressing their particular likes and dislikes.  Everyone has a right to express their opinion whether we agree with them or not and should respect everyone's opinion.  How boring if er all agreed on everything.


  OP stated only Please...

OP didn't really finish and the please..  to me implied stop selling them so no one wears them!!   Also, thinking this post like all the other posts about them where it was stated over and over by some posters that they wanted them to go away and designers to stop making them!

I'm over the tucking, too.  


 

@countrylady  I can't even believe that became a fashion statement. Back in my day (I'll be 60 by the end of the year), if anyone had a shirt not tucked in completely it was not a 'good thing' and the expression mainly used was 'they looked like a slob'. Either the shirt was tucked in completely or not at all.

 

How things change.


@Susan Louise   Yes, many things have changed since we were young (I'm in my late 60s).  Although I don't like the "half tucked" look either, most of the changes have been for the better IMO.  Pink and red were taboo, the color navy and patent leather was only worn in spring, white clothes were only worn between Memorial and Labor days, no mixing of prints (I love mixing prints now! - it's so fun), etc.    There were so many clothing "rules" back then.  Thank goodness we are more free to express our own styles now.


 

@Pearlee  I never followed those rules you mentioned for different reasons. Being a natural redhead, I rarely wear pink and red anyway. I don't like to wear white no matter what season it is and I don't mix prints because IMO, the 1st thought that comes to mind are the 12 clowns that come out of the tiny car at the circus.

 

I'm glad more folks feel 'free' with the no rules. Everyone also has their own individual tastes.

Never wore the uneven hemline and never will.

Re: I am so over the uneven hems

I was never really into them, nor the cold shoulder, nor the bell sleeves. 

 

Because a huge portion of what everybody is selling has one or more of those features, it's been quite easy for me to stick to my resolve to wear what I already own.  I never bought much Q clothing so that really hasn't decreased much.   But elsewhere the decrease has been extreme.

 

I just have to hope that by the time I truly need to add lots of outfits, the styles will be different.

Re: I am so over the uneven hems

I don’t mind a subtle high low hem top, but I don’t like shark bite, asymmetrical, or handkerchief hems. Most of my tops are traditional straight hems.

Re: I am so over the uneven hems

That TSV from Lori Goldstein looked terrible on Carolyn today.  I am not being a smart aleck, but I do not know if it was the shoes she had on or if that dress just does not look good on everyone.  I am plus size so I am not being judgement at all.  I just think that dress is a disaster.

Re: I am so over the uneven hems

I have never understood the attraction of the cold shoulder look.  I hope it goes away soon.

Re: I am so over the uneven hems

IMO, Q has never offered any that were tastefully done. But generally, I have never liked them. Same w/ cold shoulders.

To me, they are not designed at all; they are slapped together.

Re: I am so over the uneven hems

In the last year or so, I’ve modified many of my sweater patterns for a hi-lo hemline .,. the results have been rather attractive. Loving the finished items.
