Leave them on the horse in Argentina

I haven't been getting out much lately, so I decided while I was running around yesterday to do a bit of window shopping. I was kinda curious as to what the new spring trends were this year.

Oh. My. Goodness.

Now let me just say, this is all just my opinion. I don't mean to belittle anyone's sense of fashion at all. We all like what we like. It's what makes us individuals.

That being said......

What about all these flippin' gauchos?!?!? Holy Shit! Every where I went that was all I saw. Especially in the "Corporate Wear" sections. Folks - there is nothing corporate about THESE. Or even remotely sexy. Nothing works with gauchos. Not even the sexiest of boots.

And no one really looks good in them. If you're "height impaired" you just look cut off. Period. Even tall and lanky - they just look like short pants. Which is exactly what they are!!!!

And no one, anywhere, will ever convince me that they are more comfortable than a skirt. Put on a long flowy skirt and you've got movement. Plus, a skirt is even cooler when the temps start rising (better air flow, ya know!)

Seriously. I'm fairly lucky. Even with this extra weight I'm carryin' right now, I can wear just about anything. Gauchos? No. Even if I were in my early 20's again, and had that body (oh, please God) they just don't work.

So this is my new mission in life. I have GOT to stop this fashion trend. It's horrible!!! Please, take a good hard look before you buy them. Honestly. Cause otherwise, you might just be confronted by a tall, dark haired woman askin' you WHAT WERE YOU THINKING?!?!?!?!

Gauchos? Ughhhh.

I've seen 'em too. Stupidest (returning) fashion trend EVER!! Ugh. They looked awful in the 70's and they still look awful. No way in hell I'm gonna be wearing any either....

I hate those, but I also hate the whole "wearing your pajama bottoms outside of the house" trend...that bugs the CRAP out of me. Do these people like looking like trailer park trash?

I apologize if anyone is offended.

I'm glad you provided a link because all I was think was, "What the heck is a gaucho? Is that a fancy name for a Mexico hat or something?"

I agree, they look just awful.

they're all over the place, and i hate them. the girls on AI keep wearing them too, and i just want to scream at them that gauchos are NOT flattering to anyone.

No gauchos for me and I'm a certified fashion disaster. Blech!
