PSA: That looks silly. Wear trousers. Or longer shorts.

I know this isn't a fashion blog, and I know I'm hardly a fashionista. Consider this diatribe, then, a Public Service Announcement. I've accepted that Hammer pants are back with a vengeance (if this is purely a European phenomenon, then give it a year for it to cross the Atlantic). I've even accepted mesh shirts over tank tops. This doesn't mean I support or wear them, but I accept it.

One particular fashion that I feel I need to take a public stance against is: black tights underneath above-the-butt cut-off jean shorts. This photo is hardly the worst offense I've seen, but believe me, they are out in full force.

Thankfully, most Americans likely cannot fathom wearing tights in July, so perhaps most of the country will be spared from sightings like the ones we've had.

Just beware.

  1. Heh. That was France two years ago. So over now, but I have seen some hipster-dipster friends in the US picking it up...

    1. Ah yes ... it's been here since I moved. But France has those hammer pants EVERYWHERE! It's horrible. There are a few fashionistas in town wearing them here, but I'm hoping it doesn't mainstream until we move:) I am so stuck in: t-shirt & jeans or sundress & boots. Le sigh.

  3. Sweet Jebus I HATE this look. It makes my eyeballs twitch. My husband and I walk around telling them all "No." We do that a lot. Not too loud, but we still tell them. We feel it's our duty. My husband is on a mission to stop the young men of Britain wearing dropped crotch pants (especially if they're sagging).
