Occasionally I do a fashion post, so I’ll introduce it a little. I appreciate men’s fashion and try to look somewhat stylish while going out. Anyway, I talked about Mom Jorts here, and a general Men’s Style post here. I’m not the fashion police or anything, but think many men could take a little more effort in appearance. And while I don’t understand women’s fashion, most of it I think are fine. I thought the giant sunglasses thing that started a while back was interesting, but I’ve come around on that. One thing I will not come around on is the large hipster black rimmed glasses on men or women.
I was at lunch last week and saw two girls and a guy in basically identical outfits: tight pants, some kind of button down, and large black rimmed hipster glasses. Most girls who try and pull the look off fail so bad, and look like this:
Women will be as attractive as they are, but please, lose the hipster glasses. Both these women below (one is Kate Upton) would look better without them (and Kate’s glasses really aren’t that bad, but are borderline large). Why you’d want to take attention away from nice facial features and get people to focus on an ugly accessory is beyond me. Maybe someone can explain it to me.
They are fucking awful ladies and gents. You are going to look back on photos of yourself and wince, like I did on my photo-grey glasses and tight-rolled jeans from the late 80’s. Glasses themselves are fine if properly sized and fashionable, some actually look good. Or consider contact lenses, since either of those options will make you look so much better to anyone who doesn’t ride a Fixy and drink PBR because it is ironic. Sexy librarians can still get away with it, but most women (more than likely, short-haired women carrying about 40 extra lbs, mostly early 20’s is where I see these specks) look like ass. Not her (below). She’d look good in a barrel with suspenders, so stop fooling yourself that you look like this with your big black rims:
Not that you care what the Average Married Dad says, but I think I have the pulse of the people, and men in general here. But your glasses, while funny in some sad way, doesn’t make you unique. Wearing hipster glasses is conforming, and conforming is for the weak. Make your own style, who am I to say anything, but I will anyway. Large hipster glasses are ugly.
