Been to Lakeside Shopping Centre today and it seems alot of the Good Ladies of Essex have decided to sport these all-in-one-hareem-pants-and-boob-tube-efforts.
Hareem pants! Suit very few figures
Boob tubes-again very few can get away with the bra-less look.
Combine the two.
I'm sure there is going to be a spate of people yanking them down on unsuspecting wearers.
Maybe the Jeans-round-your-arse wearings youths that many of us have posted about will get their revenge?
Not wishing to generalise,but I will.The average Essex female Doesn't look anything like one of the Towie crew.
They have arses and boobs,mainly gravity defying.
Just because it's in fashion doesn't mean you should wear it
Make my eyes bleed.

Boob tubes are so last season [grins] I'm big busted so I'd never ever wear one.

As my mom used to say fashion ain't what it used to be

my daughter got given a similar outfit for her birthday from a school friend. All in one harem pants and halter neck top (not quite as bad as boob tube). luckily she's so skinny it didn't fit her.

got 50p for it at the boot fair last week! I'm not really into fashion but it was nasty.

I like a hareem pant - in the right context.

Yes FilthyDirty I suppose if you are taking part in the school play of Ali Babbar and the 40 Thieves or 1001 Arabian Nights you might just get away with it.
But in Real Life?
I saw a woman wearing one at Chessington at Easter. Goodness knows where her boobs were after the Cobra Ride!!

Fashion is generally for the young, those aged 18 to 25. After that age people should dress classically.

This is a sweeping statement (which no doubt someone will flame me for) but a lot of fashion only looks good on the model-like skeleton slim. Lets go for practical but stylish clothes shall we people. smile

These sound on a par with Crocs - ie dire.

A hareem pant grin

Love it. I like a nice trouser myself.

I haven't seen anyone wear the all-in-one with crocs yethmm, but never say never.
They all seem to be ditsy flower print with gladiator sandles.
Only saving grace is they must be easy to go to the loo in.

Took MIL to Asda today and she bought herself a strapless maxi dress - shudder. I'm just glad it's not me going on holiday to the Med with her!

On the other hand, I'm so terrified of looking like mutton dressed as lamb, I think I dress too old. sad

Shoot me - but the one i cannot get my head around is smock tops... Nnooooo i liked looking pregnant when i was pregnant, but i really don't want to look like it now... confused

Euphemia Sun 26-Jun-11 18:04:15

I had a Boden (so shoot me) smock top which was slightly too big for me as I had just lost quite a lot of weight. I wore it thinking I'd look cool like a Boden model hmm - my grannie poked me in the belly and told me I was getting fat. Top meets charity pile. sad

Jellykat Sun 26-Jun-11 18:16:27

There is no way anyone can look slim in a smock top Euphemia!
