Style

Through the years styles keep changing.

Clothes, hair, shoes, makeup, you name it .... and if you wait long enough, those old styles that were popular when you were a kid have a way of coming back to haunt you.

So the questions are .. what was your favorite look at any time in your past life - could be your haircut, your shoes, and entire ensemble !

And what style or fad do you hope never ever comes around again.

I am casual/country, L.L.Bean sort of!

I hope we never go back to Nehru jackets, lavender wide wale corduroy pants, granny glasses and embroidered bohemian yak jackets!

I love wearing good quality jeans, recently got a couple of pairs for my upcoming birthday

I also like to dress up and look feminine when we go out for parties or dinners etc

During the week for shopping etc I keep it pretty casual, tracksuit usually, love Diadora tracks

I had a year, my senior year in high school '91-'92 that I looked my best. It was a very preppy time, and I fit the mold. I had great hair, I was at my ideal weight, I just looked good.

It's been all down hill from there...

I guess that you could call my current style fairly preppy. I go for good quality over obvious name brands. I tend to only wear sneakers when at work because I'm on my feet all day. Otherwise leather shoes. In the summer I wear my Birkenstocks pretty much all the time when not working. I discovered them when I first started dealing with plantar fasciitis, they are incredibly comfortable! And no I don't wear them with socks, I've been gifted with very attractive feet for a man!

Shrek says I still look like I did when he met me...I think he's crazy but, I did look good around then. And I still wear flannel shirts, t-shirts, tank tops and jeans. Tops and dress pants if I have to look nice or dress professionally. I've always worn flat shoes, even in high school.

I went through a few stages.

Here. Have a laugh...

I liked my Rat Pack phase, but I can't walk around in black suits with skinny ties, smoke king size cigarettes in a holder and drink triple scotch on the rocks any more....lol

I have no style LOL

If it fits and I like it I wear it. I don't care what is in fashion and what isn't.

I figure if people don't like the way I dress they don't have to look !

My favorite ensemble would be blue jeans and a t-shirt and no shoes.

I don't dress up often but when I do I scare the dogs LOL They have no clue who that woman is coming down the stairs .. after a quick sniff they say it smells like Mom but it sure doesn't look like her.

I loved bell bottoms when they were in style but really can't think of any other fashion fad right now that tripped my trigger.

I spent years as a buttoned down businessman in a suit and tie. I had to wash and iron 5 dress shirts a week (or take them to the cleaners), take suits to the dry cleaners and polish shoes regularly.

Now I dress to please myself. Jeans and a T-shirt/shirt/sweatshirt when it's cold. Shorts and a T or polo when it's hot. Socks only if my feet are cold.
