The Top Ten

Clothes that are Too Small
Looking like a stuffed sausage is never a good thing. No one wants to see a muffin top.
I agree, but you could argue that 'too small' is subjective. What some North American folks call too small, Europeans might call a tailored look.
To all the people who wear this: DON'T!
We are not in a styrofoam and plastic wrap container.
It doesn't make you look hot it makes you look sloughty.

I totally agree. I can't believe that men in my state still wear them. I thought it was a joke when we first moved here.

3VPL's (Visible Panty Lines)

Please just tell me WHY guys still do this or do it at all? They look retarded! And I've questions the ladies that are their ages (College town) and asked if they thought that was hot or something figuring that's why the guys are doing it. They've all said NO! They thinks it gross! So guys, WHY do you do this?
News Flash! No one wants to see your butt, or watch you waddle around like some absurd penguin. The only good thing about it is that the cops have a better chance at catching you when you attempt to run.
This is an odd sense of what looks cool. No one whats to see what kind of underwear you prefer. Plus it give's people a sloppy, poorly dressed, no respect for other people sort of vibe. It's just gross.
[Newest]I LIKE seeing a man's butt defined in proper fitting jeans! The saggy diaper look is about as sexy on a man as it would be on us ladies!

5Casual clothing for a business meeting
Anyone can be casual. It takes real effort to look good, and evidence of real effort is impressive in business. Use every advantage.

6Wearing a tie with a short sleeve shirt or polo

7Camel Toe
Please do not, I repeat DO NOT wear too tight pants that make you have a camel toe! It is the most disgusting thing to see out in public! And check before you actually buy pants or jeans!

8Tight pants and sagging butts on guys
The irony is that sagging makes pants look baggy, but they're wearing tight jeans.
Guys, please, why do you all claim to hate Justin Bieber yet you emulate his atrocious style? If you want to be all sexy with tight pants, make sure they at least fit your butt well, but not so tight they cause embarrassing little "hard on"

9Cowboy hats in places that don't call for them.
Sorry guys, this is not a hoedown... or Texas Roadhouse.



The Contenders

11Fanny Packs
No one can honestly say that they have seen someone that looks good wearing a fanny pack. You are not any kind of marsupial. Kangaroo, Opossum, or otherwise. Just looking at the name Fanny Pack makes me grimace. Fanny. No accessory should be named after a rear end of anything. If that wasn’t a red flag for you, you should probably reexamine why you feel the need to look like an out of place tourist
There is nothing important enough that you should be carrying around that merits carring it around in a fanny pack.
Eew, that's sick who would ever think to wear one of those!

12Big Ball Caps worn crooked on the head
Seriously, it makes you look like a thug, or simply somebody with a bad attitude. You don't look cool, you look unapproachable. Same thing goes for guys who wear their hoodies on their heads all the time. Exactly what are you trying to hide or hide from?
I agree, it looks ridiculous, especially when 40+ year old men are doing it and men, please don't where hats in public buildings. Set an example for your kids.

13Canadian Tuxedo (matching denim top and bottom)

14Skanky Clothing
Just not cool anymore. Blame the women who wore it, and shouldn't have. Modesty is in now, show a little class.
Every girl has curves, that's nothing new. What's different is a girl that doesn't have to rely on those curves to get a guy.
Sometimes its fun to be a skank, but you've still got to leave a little to the imagination so we'll go with the new club look of a modest skank.

15Un-tied Skater Shoes
Especially With those tight pants boys, (and girls) It makes you look like a PEZ dispenser, not a good look.
OMG! lol. i agree with the PEZ despenser comment! lol. too true :P

16Wife Beaters and Prison Tats

17White after labor day
I thought it was acceptable now.

18Wearing no belt when tucking shirt into pants with belt loops
One should always wear a belt with Pants or Jeans if you are tucking your shirt in (if belt loops are available). This act of "tucking your shirt in but wearing no belt where there are loops" is referred to as the fashion "Cardinal Sin". It is a very popular faux paux in the South.
It looks so weird without a belt.

19Shoulder Pads
Isn't the whole point of a women's outfit to make here look her best and most FEMININE?!? Exactly where do the Incredible Hulks shoulders fit into this equation?

Possibly the ugliest and most ridiculous 80's fashion icon.

20Muscle Shirts
If you are really ripped enough, it will show anyways.

21Mesh shirts
What ghastly pieces of 'clothing'. Thankfully I hardly ever see people wearing them. Seriously cringing!
Men, no one wants to see your nipples.

22Belly Shirts
sorry all you piercers, but bely buttons on anyone older than 3 should not be seen, it doesn't matter if you are in good shape- it's skanky.

23Socks and sandals
This should NEVER EVER HAPPEN! What an oxymoron. The shoes were made so feet could be out in the open air in warm weather! What sense does it make to wear socks with them? It should be so obvious...
Germans are the worst and a lot a american white visitors to my country (uk), normally spotted in wiltshire... Gawping at Salisbury cathedral and announcing "aw mar gord "
What about slides with like Nike socks!? Other than that it should never happen! So I kinda agree.

24Skirts and skater shoes
Look, you don't have to wear heels, but for heaven's sake show a least an iota of class.

25Goth Clothing/makeup
You are not Dracula, and it is not cool, it wasn't ten years ago, and it isn't now.

26Older Than Middle-Aged Men That Are Dressed Like a Metrosexual 20 Year Old
Silly queen who needs to grow up.

27Uber low-cut tops

They belong on the farm, keep them there.

29Track Suits On Fat People
Don't dress for the gym if you haven't even SEEN a gym in years

30Tie Dye
I will be sick

31Spandex leggings with feet elastic
You all know what I'm talking about... In case that spandex started riding up the nifty feeties would keep it down. It was a fashion nightmare that should never, ever be re-lived

32Permed, crunchy hair.
If you aren't an 80 year old woman, you shouldn't be getting a perm anymore.

33Knee Highs
Do not wear knee highs with a split in the back of your dress.

34Long sleeves shirt under a T-shirt

35Tan and White
White and Tan don't go together. If you want to where a white shirt, wear a contrasting color pant or if you want to wear tan pants, wear a colorful shirt, not white.
Khaki and white - nice

36Trailing Toilet Paper
Please everyone, when you build a fort around the toilet seat make sure you don't tuck the toilet paper into your clothes and then trail it behind you. It's most embarrassing for those who have to tell you!

37Cleavage in the Work Place
A woman shouldn't be announcing that she is hunting for a mate or attention by showing cleavage. It is crass and unprofessional. This goes especially for women who work in human services jobs. i.e., the only place I have seen a woman with cleavage on a police force was on Reno 911 series. They certainly make their point with that character. Please leave it at the party or in the home. Keep it out of the workplace.

38Pants that are too short.

39Bra's that are too tight or too small.
If I can see a bulge out of the top of your bar through your shirt, its time for a bigger bra. Also women are always wearing their bras too tight. It's creating unnecessary rolls!


40Very high heels and mini skirt or dress
Unprofessional especially if they cross their legs and you see underwear.

41White socks with black shoes
Please leave this to MJ

42Pattern shirt over pattern pants or skirt
It is so ugly! It either makes you look fat or it makes you look insane.
It makes me go temporarily blind.

43Bikini In Store
I went to WAlmart and saw a girl with only a bikini on. Girls are not modest anymore.


44White boots with an all black dress.

45Head to toe in Barbie pink

46Jeans tucked into boots

47A big necklace with big earings

48Printed T-shirts With Sleeves Cut Off

49Ghetto Red Dyed Hair

50Double Denim
Denim shirt/coat with denim jeans

51Navy with black business attire

52Mom jeans

53Mixed Metals
Don't have silver earrings and a gold necklace or silver metal in one place with gold as your shoes. Just don't!

54Pitch black hair on senior citizens.
Actually makes your wrinkles stand out.

55Black with Brown
Actually 2 neutrals, they match. Take a look at a few runways from Paris or Milan before you make statements. Thanks.
Some colours are not meant to be worn together!
Yeah I wear black jeans that are too big, and my only belt that fits those pants is brown. YUCK


It makes you look tacky! Not to mention the shine makes me go blind for at least 6 hours at a time!
That is totes cool

57Anything 80's
Hey! Those leg warmer things are totally hot!
Its over, welcome to the present day, nothing in the 80's is still cool, stop trying to revive it.
Aw, come on! The 80s were cool. Well, I'm not that sure bout that hair, but still. 80s also had alotta great songs.
[Newest]I was around in the 80's. I have let it go and so should you!
