OK this is something I've wanted to have a rant about for a while. There's one particular fashion trend that I think is awful, people walking around in public as if they've just been to the gym & couldn't be bothered to get changed (only a lot of those people don't look like the types that go to gyms). This trend of sportswear that's taking over in public, it's ghastly & looks trashy in my opinion. You know how sloppily-dressed western people are, this trend is getting WORSE.
How come you RARELY see women in dresses? Even going to bars, I swear the number of women dressed in tight sexy dresses has been declining sharply. I don't know whether it's age. Why can't western women try to emulate the sort of girls you see in Russian lessons?
What do you think of todays female fashion trends? I think western fashion is crap and going downhill.
Yoga pants and leggins are tight and form fitting. Unfortunately, lots of women have strayed from both modesty and femininity in dress. This is something I also notice. If I see a woman wearing a dress, it is rarely a long summer type dress. And then there are all the girls who love to wear their short shorts and miniskirts.
Salvation is the free gift of God simply for believing that Jesus is the Son of God, and it can't be lost; the only repentance necessary is the change of mind from unbelief to belief, because salvation is not about turning from sin because it is without works. Jesus, the Savior kept all the commandments in absolute perfection for us, ∴ salvation is without works, and He died for our sins, taking the eternal penalty for us.
Today fashion is GHASTLY!
Mini skirts would be an improvement (a trend I miss). I like bootcut and flared jeans too, especially the tight ones on a woman, OMG, that's so HOT. Shame it's super rare now.
I agree regarding the revolting trend of leggings, straying from both femininity and modesty.
I also don't like the trend of ripped skinny, high-waisted jeans on women (especially if combined with T-shirts, horrid look). Why is it getting so bad? Some might disagree and find what I've described attractive, that's cool. Still, I think most men wish women would dress better.
Modern women probably don't want to wear dresses because they're so blatantly feminine. Nowadays, I see more women dressing like men, wearing baggy sweatpants and hoodies. I honestly mistake a lot of them for men until I see them up close. Wearing a dress is probably degrading to the modern American woman, who is trying to be as masculine as men.
Regarding the topic question, western fashion is going downhill because most Americans are ugly anyway, and I'm sure most Americans are aware of it. Most are overweight/obese. Most don't care to dress up, which is why you'll see people walking around in their pajama bottoms. So, when people look at the ugly slobs around them, most are going to think "why bother dressing up just to attract some slob?"
Western civilization is in decline, but it had such a tremendous head start over the rest of the world that it will be awhile yet before somewhere else starts looking more attractive.
There are many places still attractive. Let's make the discussion about halting that decline.
On oe note of music, Tourdion; quand je bois le vin claret... (ce chanson/song on my mind, I played in the pub).
On the other note of music (for this discussion), look up Μalou or Μαλου, AMAZING! A Brazilian Greek, the music is better than a lot of western (anglo-american) nonsense. On the visuals, why I'm saying, what fashion SHOULD be.
I just saw a woman at a grocery store yesterday wearing a pajama top and sweat pants! She looked like she weighed about 250 lbs! The fashion trends that women in America have are disgusting!
"When I think about the idea of getting involved with an American woman, I don't know if I should laugh .............. or vomit!"
"Trying to meet women in America is like trying to decipher Egyptian hieroglyphics."
