Ooh, la-la! If I ever end up in the pokey, I hope it’s in Cleveland County. There, Oklahoma inmates have been required to wear pink top and yellow striped bottoms prison garb for the last 16 months. The orange jumpsuit of yesterday is so passé. Still, the new pastels must be a bit embarrassing to rock when you’re trying to thug out while doing time, no? Apparently, this is no clink-y fashion statement or an attempt to humiliate prisoners into never wanting to return to prison again, prison management says. It simply makes prisoners easier to spot if they decide to flee the premises. “If one of them slips over the wall,” Undersheriff Rhett Burnett told NewsOK.com, “we want to know about it right away.” If the warden doesn’t get these escapees, we bet the fashion police will.

Some people are going to hate on these babies, but allow me to play devil’s advocate. These kicks would be awesome for those times in your life where you need a totally hideous pair of worn, holey denim sneakers to wear after getting an acrylic pedicure. [$140, ShopBop via Outblush] Keep reading »
This monster of a prom dress was found on Regretsy, the site where “bad crafts thrive,” but I’d hardly call this wonder bad. In fact, had I found a dress like this when I was in high school, I might have considered attending my prom. Then again, hot pink isn’t really my color. [via BuzzFeed] Keep reading »
I need to get something off my chest. I hate this GUESS ad. I hate it because it features a rather attractive guy wearing what could only be described as a “denim duster coat” with bleach spots. It is perhaps the most hideous ensemble I have ever seen on a dude, like something out of Justin Timberlake’s closet circa 1998. Every time I see this ad — and I see it a lot because it is running in all the current fashion, women’s, and gossip magazines — I want to take my thumb and stab holes through the paper. Why is GUESS still around as a company? Who shops there? What man shops there? Can someone please tell me? Keep reading »
Oh look! Just what I didn’t know I needed to wear to tomorrow night’s Ryan Gosling concert (he plays with some band, like I care!). He’ll totally notice me now! [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »
Yikes! With less than six months to go, the end of the decade is rapidly approaching. This past decade has seen many fashion improvements since the 90′s. Give yourself a pat on the back. Now it’s time to get to work. We have less than six months to eradicate some of the more embarrassing trends from the past years. Banning dark lipstick, heavy foundation and the anchor woman haircut were impressive achievements, but not nearly enough to forgive all our other fashion sins. Here is a list of styles and trends that must be destroyed as soon as possible. If we stop wearing these items now, history may forget that they ever existed, or may at least look kindly at the fact that we recognized the error of our fashion ways and attempted to repent before it was too late.

We spend most of our lives being preached at about the horrors of superficiality, about loving people for who they are, not what they look like. It all sounds so nice, but I’m sorry—there are certain fashion sins that are absolute deal breakers.
And it’s not just about how it looks. You’ve got to assume that any guy who consistently wears more hair gel than I do and pants so tight that even the most minute of details about his junk are very apparent has got deeper problems than bad clothes selection. (For the record, yeah, that guy happened.) ‘Cuz seriously, your man had better have some intense redeeming qualities if he’s 20-something and still fails to understand that no, socks do not go with flip flops.
Don’t believe that style matters when it comes to men? A handful of badly-dressed men have former girlfriends who will tell you otherwise… Keep reading »
Why get a wedgie pretending your thong is accidentally coming out of the top of your jeans when you can have a permanent whale tail stitched on? Sanna’s, a clothing store in Brazil, is now selling “Jeans Bikini-pants with Strass” (a combo of straps and sass?). Even at $94.29 a pair, nothing says cheap quite like these jeans.
