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.
