Every woman with a straight man in her life will know the frustration of explaining why a certain item of clothing is an absolute must have. They just don’t understand that fuzzy feeling you get when you try a new trend, unflattering as it may be. Over the years there have been many trends that have left straight men scratching their heads, and these are the best of them…
Yes, they make your legs look two foot long, your bum look saggy and you have to walk a little funny to get around but they are so avant-garde chic!
We love them because they hide a multitude of sins, but if you’re not in the know you’re probably wondering why there is a strange bit of fabric flapping around the middle of every woman’s dress.
We will admit – the whole principal of long shorts is a little self-defeating, and they are nearly impossible to wear in real life but just look at Olivia Palermo and tell me it isn’t possible to make culottes cute.
No one said that fashion was easy so just because we can’t move our arms in a cape doesn’t mean we’re going to give up on the trend.
We can understand that the trend towards leather pants is a questionable one. They are exactly as uncomfortable as you would imagine and make enough unfortunate noises to last you a lifetime of blushing. But they’re pretty.
We love a good grandpa sweater, but our male counterparts cannot understand why we would purchase an item of clothing that is four sizes too big and gives us absolutely no shape. Other than that they are super cozy, they also provide adequate coverage for dreaded fat days.
