Pajamas aren’t Clothes

Here is a topic that I truly just don’t understand. So many people are walking around IN PUBLIC with their pajamas on. It confuses me so much that I decided to write about it. I recently was at the store and this lady in front of me at the checkout was wearing Snoopy pajama pants and a Winnie-the-Pooh sweatshirt. It’s great an all that she loves Snoopy and Winnie-the-Pooh so much that she had to get their clothing items as an adult but seriously?

It baffles my mind at how people could care so less about how they present themselves to the world. Dressing nice isn’t for everybody and I understand that, but there is a difference between dressing nice and looking presentable and being able to look like you actually shower and put some effort into your appearance. If you can’t even do that then how could you drive your car and go into a place that people can see you?

Another problem. There is a difference between wearing your pajamas and wearing sweats. They are not the same thing. I know that many people just wear their sweats as pajamas and more power to you but I hope that you don’t wear the same pair out in public as you did when you were sleeping because that is just dirty.

There is a stereotype that goes around saying that the place that has the most people that don’t care about their appearance and don’t care if they wear their pajamas out in public is Walmart. There has been a website created and everything dealing with these kind of problems. Peopleofwalmart.com is a website that shows you pictures of different people spotted in their Walmart wearing something that you should never wear in public and a majority of those is pajamas. I think when people go on their website and see that so many people around the world are wearing just whatever not caring if it’s appropriate or not, they start to think that maybe it’s ok. Well guess what, it’s not. I mean yes it is funny to see someone who is wearing pajamas and looking absolutely ridiculous but I feel bad for them because I know how much people look and judge. You don’t want to be that person that is being judged on their personality just because they wore pajamas out in public once.

They say that people judge your appearance based on what you wear. First impressions are everything. It’s not right to judge people just by the way they dress but it happens, people do it ALL the time. If you want people to look at you and say well they obviously have a bad personality because they’re wearing pajamas outside of their house, then go ahead and wear them wherever  whenever. But if you want to have a change to prove yourself and actually look presentable don’t wear pajamas in public.

Fashion Don’t: Cheesy Graphic Sweatshirts

Okay, so recently I have been seeing lots of people walking around with these ugly graphic sweatshirts that you shouldn’t be caught in public wearing. I’m not talking about the ones that say love with a heart, I’m talking about the ones that have a pumpkin on it or even a star. 

These are tacky and ugly people. I know some people don’ t like to dress up when they go out in public and that is perfectly fine. I don’t care if I see someone who is wearing sweat pants in public because whatever they just want to be comfy, but when you have this huge cartoon picture on your chest, that is where I draw the line. These sweatshirts are starting to pop up everywhere in stores. People are starting to buy more and more of these because the stores sell them for cheap. NEWS FLASH PEOPLE! They are cheap because they are ugly and they don’t think people will  buy them so they put them at a lower price. 

Yes I know that everyone has the right to wear whatever they want and I respect that. I am just giving you all some advice on what actually looks presentable and what needs to be burned at a bonfire. The tacky sweatshirts are great for parties and events that you’re supposed to wear ugly shirts. For example during Christmas time lots of people have ugly sweater parties. Once again they are supposed to be ugly and that’s why everyone wears them. It is not Christmas season all year long, so you don’t have to wear the sweater or sweatshirt all year long. And plus, why would you want to wear it more than once anyway? 

If you love the cheesy graphic sweatshirt trend and that’s all you own in your closet than go right ahead and strut it out in public but keep in mind that you may look a little strange. If you want to keep wearing them maybe try and find something that is a little less toned down. There are some graphic sweatshirts that are acceptable. For example, Forever21 has lots of graphic sweatshirts that are cute and affordable, but make sure you are on the lookout because sometimes they get a little crazy.

 

Be safe out there and make sure you stay away from anything that is a sweatshirt and that has big, large cartoon figures or letters on them!

 

Fashion Don’t:Dresses Over Pants

Dresses over pants. Never should be worn together. If you think that this is acceptable that you probably haven’t looked in the mirror. Many stars are starting to wear this hideous attire to red carpet events. Just because the stars are wearing them doesn’t make them ok to sport out in public, or ever! If you want to wear a dress then wear a dress, if you want to wear pants then wear pants, but know that they should never go together.

Long shirts are different that dresses, they may look like dresses but they are not. Long shirts over pants is ok because it’s a shirt not a dress. For example if you were wearing a long henley shirt over jeans that would be acceptable and cute. If you wanted to wear a bodycon dress with jeans that would be out of question. I don’t understand why this is becoming a trend and why so many women think that this looks ok.

The thing that is really confusing about dresses over pants, is why they choose to pick the same color and fabric of pant as the dress. It makes it look way worse than before if you are wearing pants that match the dress. It just look like they did a bad job hemming your dress and added legs. NOT OK! Also, if you are going to wear a longer dress you don’t need to have pants on underneath. The dress was made long so you wouldn’t have to wear anything underneath, it already covers up your legs. You don’t need to wear a maxi dress with jeans, that does not look good AT ALL.

This trend still makes no sense to me. Dresses and pants were made to go in separate outfits, not together. The only time that this trend would be acceptable is if you were dressing up for Halloween or you had to play a confused older woman in a play.

Another thing that we need to clear up real quick is that leggings are not the same thing as pants. Yes people wear them as pants but they are not the same thing. They are meant to add more fabric to something or be some sort of substitute to pants if you didn’t want to wear them with your outfit. Dresses with leggings are acceptable, but make sure you pair the leggings with the right type of dress, because it can still look a little  bit off.

So ladies do all of us on this world a favor and do not wear dresses with pants, even if you wanted to wear the dress under pants, don’t do it. Wear them in separate outfits, that way you won’t look so confused and lost when you are wandering around the streets of America.
