Teeny tiny tops and too short shorts. I always feel like my mother is channeling her voice through me as I see the styles get more and more revealing. Perhaps it is because I grew up in a generation in which wearing 3 different colored socks was “cool,” but I cringe at some of the fashion choices out there.
Miley Cyrus wore a crop top that left her underboob peeking out in pic. The star tweeted the photo of herself during a rehearsal that showed off her ultra low riding denim and the fact she wasn’t wearing a bra. At a red carpet event, Cyrus let it all hang out. Halle Berry wore a boobtastic dress on while plugging her latest work on a talk show. Kim Kardashian left little to the imagination when she wore a see-thru top while paparazzi snapped away.
I am all for skimming the line of risque and even stepping a toe over the line, but what is “sexy” and what is “skanky” these days?
I polled some of my friends and the response was pretty much unanimous…
“She just looks desperate. Nothing turns a guy off faster than a woman who is too self involved and will do anything for attention.” Justin, Age 28
“I don’t see anything wrong with showing off what you spend hours at the gym perfecting!” Jenn, Age 23
“I love Halle Berry, but this dress…it doesn’t fit properly or she needs more support.” Luca, Age 27
“There are two things that will end a date for me – When a woman wears too much makeup or she is showing off too much skin. It just conveys desperation and says that she is trying to compensate for something.” Brian, Age 30
“It’s like Angelina popping her leg during the Oscars. It just screams I WANT ATTENTION!” Amy, 29
