So handy, so comfortable, so versatile, so good at hiding a multitude of sins........ sad

Catnuzzle Sun 11-May-14 13:09:35

Since when, I'm in trouble then....

They are if you've got a bum like mine.

MammaTJ Sun 11-May-14 13:10:54

They are the best look when you have a bum like mine.

Looking cool is dressing for your shape, not being a fashion victim.

Chocotrekkie Sun 11-May-14 13:12:36

I think it is the best look I have.. Unless you count long tunic over thick leggings as a separate thing ?

What are we supposed to be wearing - flowery dresses that I can't get my boobs in with tights thrush and heels no way

Or jeans with a short top which ride up and my manky tummy falls out of

Were they ever?

Maybe it's a regional thing, not seen any people wearing that combo where I live.

I am the owner of that multitude of sins, have a number of natty tunic-type tops and shall be wearing them again this summer. I'm old enough to not care about whether it's a cool look or not, thank God

Not in my world they are not out of fashion! But I also really love the loose blouses they are everywhere, Next has a really good selection! My problem is my middle and loose blouses really work.

Well I don't think anyone could claim it was ever a "cool" look could they?

It's comfort over style. A lot of people prioritise comfort.

Long floaty tunic over skinny jeans finished with clunky flip flops. Seriously cool in an elegant understated way.

Sleepyhoglet Sun 11-May-14 13:23:54

That's white stuff screwed then!

catgirl1976 Sun 11-May-14 13:24:10

Cool no longer matters to me

Covering arse, muffin top and tops of thighs is now top priority when dressing.


I should probably get my flabby arse over to the low carb boot camp threads.

Joules68 Sun 11-May-14 13:24:44

Skinny jeans, yes, but it's the boot cut ones which look odd. Or flared ones

Pipbin Sun 11-May-14 13:27:05

I don't give a rats if it's not 'cool' any more. I shall wear what I like, not what other people like.
Anyway, if it isn't 'cool' then why are places like White Stuff and Seasalt still selling it?

ICanSeeTheSun Sun 11-May-14 13:30:09

At the moment I am sat freezing in a dress and heels, wishing I had a tunic top and leggings with ankle boots.

usuallysuspect Sun 11-May-14 13:30:26

I bought a great Sea Salt tunic thing in the Chazza shop for £3.

I'm going to wear it over Skinny jeans whether it's cool or not.

Lottapianos Sun 11-May-14 13:32:53

Well balls to that. Who cares what's cool? Wear what you like and what you feel good in. I'm wearing a tunic and leggings today - haven't been bothered by the fashion police so far!

TequilaMockingbirdy Sun 11-May-14 13:34:04

They've never been cool here, just always a 'mumsy' look.

Beavie Sun 11-May-14 13:35:09

Sat here wearing a white stuff tunic and leggings.

Maybe it's not cool but my bovvered box is empty I'm afraid.

TequilaMockingbirdy Sun 11-May-14 13:35:19

But sod what's cool. Wear what you want. I know I do!

TequilaMockingbirdy Sun 11-May-14 13:36:16

Why is White Stuff seen as a cool brand confused

FloozeyLoozey Sun 11-May-14 13:36:45

That look has never been cool or in fashion, but it depends whether you give a shit about that or not! At my size (18) everything looks hideous, so I just dress for comfort.

usuallysuspect Sun 11-May-14 13:38:19

I'm nearly 55, I've long since not given a toss about looking cool.

Hell will freeze over before a crop top over camel toe appears on my persons.
