Husband's Opinions on Skirts
I've often heard it said that men generally aren't nearly as enamored with certain fashion trends as women seem to be, however, most men I've known don't seem to have any opinions on fashion in general. Angel, however, has strong opinions.
I've learned that the biggest area where I can go wrong (in his opinion) when getting dressed is in skirt style. Angel detests equally:
High-waisted pencil skirts (we've talked about this one before)
Skirts with high-low hems
Floor length skirts
That really leaves me with only straight or full-cut skirts slightly below knee-length or shorter on the the approved list. The skirt I'm wearing in the pictures I've had since I was 15, and I don't think it's coming to China because Angel audibly groans every time he sees me wear it (anyone wants to give him a basic lesson in "Things you don't say to your wife"?). If I really, really love something in my wardrobe, and if Angel doesn't like it purely because it does not match his particular sense of style, I'll generally still wear it but out of the kindness of my heart I try to avoid wearing it when we're hanging out together. However, this is fairly impossible when he's the one assigned to take my outfit photos.
This road goes both ways, though. There are certainly styles that I really don't like to see Angel wear and he does occasionally wear them--so I think there's balance in the relationship. My top three most-detested articles of men's clothing are:
Have you ever discovered that your husband has a random aversion to very specific clothing styles or trends? Which ones? Are there any clothing items for men that you just aren't a fan of?
P.S. Tradition demands that I link up this rebelliously stylish post to Joanna and Deanna's blogs for "Sprummer Fashion Week". It's all the rage, so I'm sure you've heard of it.
