Put a picture of yourself on here so we can all judge your outfit.

It's the vest tops I can't abide. Unless you're cameron diaz, please, they don't suit you.

Didn't know Gok Wan was on MN....

What's wrong with vest tops confused ?
I live in them in the summer, they're cool,practical and cheap.

It's not unfair to say that as a nation, we don't exactly dress the best. And also tend to bare our flesh at the slightest ray of sunshine, which is usually white, wobbly flesh, covered with rancid tattoos.

Just as well I'm in a burkha then. Or is that also unacceptable? Just so's I know, wouldn't want to upset you, or anything... hmm

Please bugger off.

On a serious note though the surfer brands tend to be the best for summer clothing, good quality and good fit but sadly not cheap unless you know which internet sites sell them at affordable prices.

Have plenty of money to spend on unoffending clothing.

im liking it, I've gotten into cardigans so can just wear a vest top with cardigan all the time (on or off depending on weather). also, i think this decade is the decade where people just wear what they want.

And how much did your judgy pants cost

People buy what they can afford as long as they are not walking round in queen while their children were second hand skirts then stfu

Oh how I wish I was rich too...

AgentZigzag Mon 01-Aug-11 17:10:14

I prefer cheap clothes, they don't give any false illusions about what type of person I am.

27tilly Mon 01-Aug-11 17:10:17

Oh and FYI
You're a nob

AgentZigzag Mon 01-Aug-11 17:16:34

Who? Me tilly? sad


LadyBeagleEyes Mon 01-Aug-11 17:26:36

So, pray tell me, oh wise op, what should we be wearing?

catgirl1976 Mon 01-Aug-11 17:57:55

I can cope with the cheap clothes - not bothered.

What does bother me is men. Men who take their tops off and parade thier flabby, hairy, white, juddery bellies and saggy moobs to the world. And I live by the sea so they are LEGION.

It is vile. Please make that stop.

If that stops, women of the world can go round in 19p vest tops from Pri-marni all day long as far as I care.

GeneralCustard what sites are your tips then? I use the Animal outlet quite often and DH has some others online he's keen on but they're more his gender and style so I'm always keen to grab a bargain.

Tell me where I can find summer!?

BrigadeOfLannisters Mon 08-Aug-11 15:05:52

When I was a child in teh early eighties I lusted after a cheap long t-shirt with fringes and beads around the hem.

I never got one and rightly so!

Now summer fashions pass me by. DC get shorts and vest tops. What more do they need?
