Fashionanigans Without Fear!

the ultimate way to triumph over trends

Several of the Fashion: Trend half-baked ideas up here have an underlying similarity.
These are people with a sense of style who would like to wear outrageous things, or not outrageous things, but in any case, they would like to wear things, but have them be the same things as all the "cool" people they encounter. In fashion today, the things themselves are not so important.

I say, it is time to give the importance back to the things!

This scheme is almost ridculously simple. It is delicious, inexpensive, and even the president could understand it!

Put on whatever you'd like-- and then never leave the house. You will be wearing what all the "cool" people around are wearing....if you're the only "cool" person around!

For added fun, you can tape your own "fashion report" tv shows, or make your own fashion magazines, all about what is in or out for autumn in your home, or how fashion in the kitchen is starting to assert a distinct identity apart from its neighbor the dining room. Consume these media confirmations of your own style for a sense of self-satisfaction that will rock your tiny world!

Make sure to change trends suddenly and often to keep yourself on your toes. Remember: yesterday's crown jewels are today's infirm stools. Its good for the economy.

       I like the idea of you not leaving your house; take it one step further and disconnect yourself from the internet. This will mean you no longer have to compare your fashion with others, and also has the added benefit of them not having to listen to bullshit.

       subgenius should rename himself "20,000 leagues under the genius".

       dear, you don't have to listen to my bullshit. I'm not holding your face to the screen. Also, stu, I'm female, not that it matters.

       I usually don't wear clothes around the house. No point.

       <Angus Deayton>*obviously reading* And, the award for the longest title goes to a girl who's name is quite an understatement, altough as she says, 'that's the idea'.........</Angus Deayton>

       Rayford, that depends on whether the heating's working or not, surely?

I give this idea a croissant because it's heart is in the right place, i.e. death to the fashion industry!

       thanks, [unabubba], my bad, duly amended. incidentally, [nickthegreat], i'm a girl not a man. why is it the minute i start sounding like an asshole, everyone assumes i'm male? hmmm.

       [subgenius]: consider my remark corrected.
NickTheGreat, Jul 05 2002
  

       [somewhatlessthan20000leaguesunderthegenius]: my apologies for mis-guessing your gender. Also, I should have seen that you are a considerable distance above resarf, alcock and their schizophrenic buddies, but my judgement was clouded by too many damn trouser/pant ideas.   

       I still disagree with the idea though: the point of wearing fashionable clothing is so that when other people see you with your fashionable pants-round-your-ankles and scoff, then the following week the scoffers will find themselves wearing exactly the same outfit, and you can laugh last and longest. Fashion is a communal activity.
pottedstu, Jul 05 2002
  

       At this point I'm prepared to croissant anything (especially so in the case of fashion ideas) that doesn't have the words "pole" and "pants" together in the same sentence.   

       Sounds like fun, but it's so simple... please yourself, not others. I never really cared about trends anyway, but I guess it's fun to dress in a trendy "fashion" (heh heh a pun) sometimes- if only to mock the silly fads.
