Whatever happened to being well covered? By this I mean showing less skin, legs, breasts and booty. Why do women think it's sexy to show everything? One does not look more attractive by showing more skin.
The timeless styles of vintage had class and sophistication. Almost all the styles exposed minimum skin yet made the wearer look fantastic! The latest fads and trends tend to encourage exposing more of our bodies, and we wonder why women still have a hard time being taken seriously in the work force. (Please, don't get me started!) They are simply attracting the wrong kind of attention and encouraging inappropriate behaviours from both men and women.
I'm not sure sometimes which generation is doing the most harm. The young girls and teenagers who wish to look older by exposing themselves, or the mature woman who wishes to look younger and tries too hard.
I apologize. This is somewhat of a rant. Part of my fascination and adoration of vintage clothing is not just the construction, fabrics, beautiful design or attention to detail. It is how it makes the wearer look classic, and feel confident focusing on the person within, not the flash of skin without.
This is what I mean, thanks to young hollywood.
Not good. Where's the dress Taraji P. Henson?
Thank you Jessica Biel.
