Unless it was the one thing available that could save me from death by freezing, I could never wear a poncho.

I got made fun of in 1997 for having hand-me-down jeans with little side zippers at the ankle when everyone else was wearing JNCOs. Little ankle zippers, you are now anathema.

TBH I could not ever wear JNCOs either. Maybe anything associated strongly with junior high is right out.

oh man, JNCOs -- so glad I never have to be a sixth grader ever again

I feel like I can't wear red lipstick because it makes my teeth look like a row of yellow yellow corn kernels.

Oh god, one more reason I'm glad I'm not a girl. My teeth don't need anything drawing attention to them.

I have a couple knitting friends my age who are really into snoods

I don't know why but when I tried one on it made me feel like I was giving of vibes of fecundity and homeliness, a weird combo.

I had no idea that was called a snood

when i was a bit heavier, i thought i could totally rock A-line dresses. instead, people would ask me, "so when are you due?" it was pretty humiliating to say, "i am not pregnant, i'm just fat."

also - stirrup pants - never again!!!

Stirrup pants OTM.

Spur pants, otoh, I would consider.

I miss JNCOs and Kikwear, particularly on women. I saw a girl wearing them at school back in '06 or '07 - it was like, where the hell did she come from?

Idaho, probably. My 17-year-old brother bought a pair of Kikwear pants a few weeks ago & called me to brag about it.

^^ what are JNCO and kikwear? ankle zipper Guess jeans were the pinnacle of junior high fashion, when i was in junior high.

Mohair sweaters, but only because I am pretty sure I am allergic to mohair.

sarahel, JNCO and Kikwear were huge bellbottoms worn by ravers between say 1995 and 2000.

sarahel, Tuesday, 2 November 2010 19:35 (eight years ago) Permalink

I totally rocked that bellbottoms look in 1997ish! Not as a raver, though.
Strapless boob tubes that are elasticated around the top. Look totally weird on me.
Also most A-line skirts, and I am pretty skinny. They just look so odd on my legs.

Not the real Village People, Tuesday, 2 November 2010 19:52 (eight years ago) Permalink

Empire-waist tunics/dresses, but I think they look unflattering on most everybody. I also can't seem to wear white sneakers without looking like a huge dork.

superpussy, Tuesday, 2 November 2010 21:28 (eight years ago) Permalink

JNCOS were my thing for a while the first couple years of college. I loved the shit out of those things. I still prefer wide leg jeans. I can either do slim and straight or wide leg trouser jeans but that's about it.

Sarahel I can't really see why an A-line dress would make anyone look pregnant. Do you mean empire waist? Those are pure evil.

I can't wear red lipstick because my lips are too big and I look like a clown. I also can't really wear heels higher than 2 inches because then I'm over 6 feet and can't walk at all.

i am sort of opposed to the idea that items i could never wear exist, on principle, but those spaghetti strap long dresses that people wore over baby tees in the '90s looked horrible on me.

Yeah, I would like to be the kind of crazy art teacher lady who wears sculpturally draped tunics and geometric flowing things but they all give the impression I am swimming in shapeless mushy fabric. You need shoulders and height for those. RIP my dreams.

In the English speaking world, in particular United Kingdom, Ireland, some Commonwealth countries, and occasionally in United States, knickers is a word that is used to describe women's and occasionally (but quite rarely) men's underpants and undergarments, women's lingerie, and for sports pants sportswear. In the United States it more commonly used as a short form for Knickerbockers, a type of golfing pants, also called Plus fours.

how is it that I still have my notes from high school AP chem and all of my old genetics texts but did not save any of the many things I hung on my body? Not that it would much matter because I weighed like sub 120s because anorexia was also a 90s phase for me.

I get the appeal of baggy clothes that feel snuggly etc, I LIVE in 20-year-old tshirts at home. But they don't have the same studied effect of erasing me from sight or making me look small and insignificant.

V. Neck. Tees.
Hate them with a white hot intensity.

V necks are my very favorite, on tees and any other item of clothing (blouses, dresses, sweaters, etc.).

Alas, I am a woman with a nice rack, if I do say so myself. Deep v-necks on men are obv a thing now and I'm not so crazy about the look on dudes as on women.

Maybe V-necks got American Apparel-ized and that's why everyone hates them? Not sure. They're my favorite bc I dislike being choked also I am short and welcome vertical lines.

V necks are the most flattering for the larger boobed among us to wear for sure. I am medium of boob size and prefer either a deep scoop or V.

Overall though boatnecks are my favorite because I love how classic they are and because they help balance out my shoulder and hips.
