However...there's one article of clothing that is an unequivocal fashion disaster, universally unflattering to women--and generally speaking, not a good idea. Yet, somehow, many of us find ourselves with this item in our wardrobes:
The Unisex T-Shirt!!!
and its cousin:
The Unisex Polo T-Shirt!!!
Could an article of clothing, so regularly worn by so many women, be any more unflattering? I really don't think there's anything "unisex" about it. This is not a compromise between men's and women's clothing, this is a men's t-shirt, marketed to women who, for the most part, don't have nearly the muscle mass in their biceps to fill those gaping sleeve holes.
These t-shirts are bad. Yes, there may be appropriate times to use them. Putting new shingles on your house is probably an appropriate time to wear a unisex t-shirt. However, this post was inspired when I switched out my summer and winter wardrobes and counted up the huge stack of t-shirts that belong to me but would probably look more appropriate on Angel. The thing is, it seems like you never buy these t-shirts, but they simply come to you, through no fault of your own. And, unlike pretty party dresses that you love, they're practically indestructible. I have a collection of t-shirts from: church choir, Awana club, high school theater, college promotions, McDonald's handing out free t-shirts, youth group, mission trips, etc. None of them seem to be going anywhere, and, I'm proud to say, they don't get that much wear, either. Although, next time I need to get on a roof, I know I have the appropriate wardrobe.
Do you have any of these shirts, or are you going to claim complete innocence? What's your opinion on this fashion statement?
