Continuing from Part 1 of our post on Women’s Top Fashion Fails here we exhibit Part 2 of MORE women’s fashion fails. Generally we’re exposed to stylish trends through the media but then with everything good there’s the adverse side of things. Let’s us showcase thee….
Leopard prints is a trend that many women favor. At some point in a woman’s life she’s probably owned at least one item of leopard print whether that is a leopard printed blouse, a top, a pair of shoes or to something more modest like a leopard print scarf.

We’re thinking leopard print is pretty stylish right?
“Reminds me of cougars on the prowl for some serious lovin’ but ain’t getting any.” – Nick, 25, Bayswater
It seems as though men seem to think that leopard print makes women look anything but ladylike and sophisticated. There is a negative association with leopard print and it just seems to convey the wrong image to men. In fact it reminds them of prostitutes. Eeekkk! They typically rock up in leopard print tops, skirts, dresses and tights. True?
“Don’t wear too much animal print in one shot unless you want men to come up to you and ask you “how much?” and you’re not willing to put a price on it!” Chad, 31, Scarborough
Reowwww! So just a tip, subtle leopard print is fine but don’t go all over animal print unless you’re trying to master the corner lady look.
In all honesty lugging around a ginormous handbag does look kind of ridiculous. Not only is it bad for you in a health kind of way but its quite impractical. It would be acceptable if you were living on the go but for many women, that’s not the case but rather just a fashion statement. Yes, that’s right. A fashion statement to seemingly lug around everything they own in that bag. Maybe not, but look like you are.
“I think the invention of the giant handbag is a strategic invention for women in attempt to hide their shopping purchases when they come home empty handed but their handbag is half of the mall’s purchases and then use the line “Oh this old thing [dress]? I got it a long time ago!”” – Daniel, 33, Ocean Reef
Come on ladies, let’s look elegant here instead of looking like we’d be camping out in the handbag tonight.
There’s a fine line between clothing being see through sexy and see through fail. Getting it right means you’ll have the guys mesmerized but getting it wrong means you’ll most likely be mouthed “WTH is she wearing?!” kind of comments.
“I love it when a girl wears see through stuff when we’re in private – there’s nothing hotter but if she’d like to take that to the street too then I’d rather be the guy who’s a mile behind her rather than the guy that’s walking next to her.” – James, 26, North Perth
“Let’s save peek a boo outfits for the bedroom shall we?” – Travis, 29, Ballajura
Too skimpy clothing
Listen up The Shire girls! More skin does not equal more sex appeal! It’s just obviously downright trashy and unsexys you.
“What these girls lack in brains, they compensate in boobs and bum. It’s just as simple as that.” – Scott, 28, Joondalup
“They aren’t confident in anything else about themselves other than their looks so they must bust out of their clothes in order to make up for everything else. They follow the “I must, I must, I must increase my bust” mantra.” Raymond, 30, Highgate
Overdoing shorts shorts
Let’s face it, shorty shorts are not universally flattering. so it’s not a look every woman should attempt. Even if you had the body for it, it’s not terribly elegant either but at least you can look good in it right?
Maybe the women in the below pictures are just attempting their hand at even tanning….including their butts?
“Terrible! Did these ladies even look in the mirror before they left the house? And if they did, did the mirror tell them its ok to wear that out? Heck no! I have momentarily gone blind.” – Tom, Mandurah, 27
“Looks like a dog mauled at her a$# and that’s what is left. Ladies, you are not poor so why dress like you are by buying clothes that look too small on you. Plus it makes you look fat, not sexy. I rest my case.” – Jordan, 29, Nedlands
Don’t attempt this look at home ladies. Bum cleavage is not sexy!
Come on ladies, we’re young and stylish. We’re still youthful enough to pull off certain fashion trends so let’s enjoy these fleeting moments while we can. And when we’re older let’s stick to clothes that would flatter and suit not only our age but our bodies. It’s strange enough that younger girls are opting for the “granny chic” trend and trying to make this a fashion statement. Then we have the more mature ladies and they try to reverse 30 years and wear skirts that are too tight, tops cut too low and other fashion crimes.
Sometimes there’s a fine line between “vintage” and “granny” so let’s not confuse the two.
“Women’s fashion can be quite peculiar but I can’t understand why you would want to dress older than you actually are and try to reverse time when you become of age.”
Take the Olsen twins for instance. They live and breathe the granny chic trend, yet they are now fashion designers having taking a career turn from acting. We think they should’ve stuck to their day job.
Women love ponchos because they’re warm and fuss free. But in a nutshell it’s really a portable blanket. Or so that’s what the guys think.
“Seriously I fail to understand why women would think by throwing on a huge piece of woollen material is what you call clothing. This poncho thing is literally a giant piece of warm material with a head hole. It’s hideous. It’d be pretty hard to make this look sexy.” – Toby, 24, Vic Park
“My fiancée is a sucker for ponchos. When the weather gets a bit chilly it’s the first thing she whips out. She’s got plain coloured ones, colourful ones, light ones and woollen ones. I’m not a fan of it and I’ve told her about it but there’s no convincing her out of it so I might as well focus on the fact that she’s gorgeous.” – Timothy, 25, Cannington
Awwwww…..Timothy would score huge brownie points with his fiancée and probably gets away with wearing stuff she doesn’t like him to wear!
Leg warmers reminisces the 80s bad fashion and that’s a trend that should stay with era.
“This trend is totally weird. It’s like a footless sock, a half stocking. Doesn’t seem to do anything in particular bit look completely weird.” – Mike, 26, Redcliffe
“Is this thing meant to keep your legs warm? If so why don’t you just put some pants on instead of wearing shorts with it and then trying to keep your calves warm? Just doesn’t make sense!” – Eric, 28,
And they are totally spot on with their comments we say.
This would trump ugg boots in terms of women’s footwear which men find ridiculously unappealing. They may be comfy and all but crocs should NOT be worn out in public.
“The hottest chick would look like a fool in crocs. It’s just not sexy. At all.” – Barry, 22, East Perth
There’s no excuse to wear crocs out…none whatsoever.
Ladies, unless you’re a cowgirl these shoes should be a no touch footwear item. Yes we know Jessica Simpson made it look hot in The Duke of Hazzard only because men were probably paying more attention to her girls more than her feet.
Let’s just leave the cowboy boots alone and stick to our conventional winter boots.
So that wraps up Part 2 of Women’s Top Fashion Trend Fails…According to Men.
It appears men do know what they are talking about when it comes to women’s fashion trends, well at least the part which they point out which trends we should steer clear from because quite frankly ladies, it doesn’t look great.
