...I'm not sure. I did read a bit in the local paper that the current style of plunging necklines is making it tough for some women to find appropriate clothing for a professional workplace.
The 'guy' part of me says 'So? What's the problem?'. But I do know that there are women who aren't entirely comfortable wearing something at the office that shows a lot of cleavage. The Better Half wears a lot of turtleneck blouses to work, so I know at least one woman who's bucking the fashion trend.
I know there are a few things that I am tired of seeing on people. I think I'll sound like an old man. So be it.
-I'm tired of seeing big, massive tattoos on everyone. Used to be, people got inked as a sign of their individuality. If everyone goes and gets tattooed, then where's the individuality? Aren't you just following the herd at that point? Used to be that women got a rather small and dainty tattoo somewhere. Now they get the stuff like a map of Pennsylvania, the Japanese characters for 'Fire Exit', or a schematic for a dishwasher done up someplace on them. I'm just not sure that's a good look. Veterans of either gender get a pass-tattoos are part of the culture.
-Ditto the people with earlobes stretched out with holes the size of dinner plates. I know-you're making a statement. That statement, however, is 'I look like a Ubangi or some dude from New Guinea'. What makes a person think this a) looks good, or b) will enhance their chances of getting that district manager job?
-The goth look. I've seen enough girls with hair dyed jet-black, clad in black, eyes lined in black, and a permanent pout. If you don't like your life now, just wait. It gets worse.
I'm sure there's more, but right now ideas aren't coming into my head. Like I said, perhaps I'm simply becoming old. So maybe design something with a little higher neckline for the ladies. And you kids get out of my yard!
