Re: What are details on clothing that you don't like?

I normally don't like:  faux jewelry on necklines, cutout designs or additional  strings at necklines.  But anything else is "open season" to me in that while I am usually minimalist in dressinng,  I may decide that I like anything.   I don't have absolutes on fashion.

If my dog doesn't like you, neither do I.

pockets... especially those just stuck on for appearance that have no purpose... pockets on front of shirts... pockets on legs of pants... STUPID LOOKING.

I dislike elastic waist pants that don't have a flat band in front.

I could probably go on for pages .... but here are my TOP 10:

 

  1. Pockets in pants (other than jeans) or pockets in dresses or blouses/tops
  2. Fit and Flair/flare? styles
  3. Distressing/sanding/fading or whiskering anywhere on anything.
  4. Rivets / grommets - anywhere on any clothing, or any other "decorative" hardware and/or buttons
  5. Roll-tab sleeves
  6. Rouching anywhere
  7. Squared off high/low hemlines that have a "fanny flap" in back
  8. Any knit tunic length tops that hug the rear
  9. Plaids or stripes that do not meet/match.
  10. Necklines - must meet my criteria

I don't care for breast pockets on women's shirts; on men's shirts, they're okay of course.

For me it is

  1. ladder lace
  2. large grommets on anything (small are fine)
  3. fringe on blouses or pants,
  4. lots of embroidery (a little detail is ok but be realistic) DG2 had jeans with this large embroidery detail, and even in her super stretchy material, those areas have no give whatsoever the jeans were always tight on one leg🤨 Not to me tion the threads start to break over time and look sloppy and stick out even while washing in laundry bags or gentle cycles.
  5. soutache is a big no-no,
  6. low-low V necks, as someone with a small bust it just looks like the shirt does not fit or it stretched out. I love a v neck because crew looks terrible with my fat neck and also I don't like clothes that feel like they are touching my neck all the way around it.
  7. cold shoulders, which seems to have died in popularity the last couple seasons thankfully
  8. patchwork that is not well thought out, and seems to be showing up more and more of late
  9. ETA: Jogger jeans, what is the point?

I'm very tired with tops that have the uneven hems.  Nobody looks good in them.   Cold shoulder too.

@NEvans2 I know what you mean about gold hardware.  Iman only uses gold hardware because she thinks it looks expensive.  And while I like and own many of her garments, the accessories and clothing that only have gold I feel do not always look as "rich" as she thinks and typically I stay away from them.

Hmmm let's see...

 

  • rhinestones/sequins/faux jewels on necklines or bodice of tops
  • peplums
  • one small chest pocket on a t-shirt
  • dense floral patterns/dense any kind of print
  • plaid and/or buffalo check
  • any design detail on the back pockets of jeans (a tiny brand emblem on the top corner of the pocket is OK)
  • poncho tops/blouses
  • waffle knit
  • wood buttons
  • roll-up tabs on sleeves
  • lace details sewn onto sleeves, hems, side panels, etc.
  • velcro on sandals and sneakers...any velcro
  • ruffles
  • multi-tiered dresses
