  • over the knee boots
  • fringe (on clothes or outerwear; I do have a pair of booties with fringe)
  • camo (have never been into it)
  • Block heel shoes (too clunky looking for my size 10 feet)

Re: Trends I'm staying away from...how about you?

I could write a book on what I won't wear, I'm 56 so my days of jumping on every trend that comes down the pike are long gone.  First, what are Gumby jeans?  That one went right by me.

 

I like the look of skinnies but I also like to look good in my clothes.  So, I don't wear them and never will.  I wear boot cuts, boyfriend or straight jeans.  I also like flare jeans which seem to be everywhere but I'm too short and too wide to carry that look off.

 

I also don't and won't wear tops that have a "tail".  Some of those tails are exaggerated and very long.  Others come to the thigh.  I don't wear skinnies or leggings so there's no reason for me to go there.  Once again, that's hard look for short woman to wear and look good.

 

I think they are gone except maybe here at QVC but I won't wear moto jackets.  Been there, done that.  I've outgrown all those hip short, shrunken jackets.

 

I like that burgundy color that is absolutely everrywhere and that is why I won't wear too much of it in my clothing.  I hate looking like a clone.  I bought a burgunty top and I already own a burgundy sweater.  I'm done.  I'll get my burgundy fix in with the flats and handbag I bought recently.

 

There are probably other things I won't wear but those are the ones that come to mind now.

@SilleeMeeI bet they're the pants we've seen in the thread on "odd items" where the crotch is down to the knees.

@ECBG,

Woman LOL I'd call those drop-crotch pants "HAMMER PANTS"...as in MC Hammer, i.e. harem pants. They were popular in the 80s. The op said "Gumby Jeans" were bell-bottom type jeans. After I saw Gumby, that's when I got it.Woman LOL
