Of Buttcracks and Cleavages

I travel by bus everyday to work.It gives me an opportunity to observe people without being too obvious. The latest fad in fashion is the "low waist jeans". I always think whether its more of a fashion disaster.

Everybody is wearing it from fat to skinny..tall to short...

The low waist jeans has shown me some unsightly views and unchartered territories. Not to sound too retro and conservative,was it not enough that showing the cleavage was considered fine that we are now happily showing our other cleavage as well.

Just yesterday I saw a young mother with her 2 friends get in the bus. She was not skinny but quite well endowed and wearing a LWJ (Low waist jeans ) plus no belt to hold it up. It was quite an ordeal for everybody to see her sitting down .

Its fine if fashion models wear it cause they make it look good .Also people who can carry it without showing their backside to the entire world.

On an average I get to see at least 5-10 butt cracks everyday and I think my cup runneth over . Sometimes I feel like screaming loudly "get a grip people either wear a belt , a longer t -shirt or take your butt crack somewhere else".

And on my trip to Manchester last weekend it was more of a cleavage galore...
Showing a bit of your cleavage looks classy.
When did showing too much come back in vogue....maybe fine for a night at the disco but not on the streets that too in daytime.
When they say "if you have it ,flaunt it..." how much of it should you take literally???
Does it mean ,show it all and bare it all???

I am no moral police...but when my auditory elements are jarred by loud clothes , butt cracks and too much of cleavage, it becomes my right to speak up for the cause of fashion.

I completely agree with what Vinita has to say! Infact I had a friend who gone for some entrance exam and fortunately or unfortunately there was this girl sitting in front of him wearing ultra low waist jeans. Poor guy got so distracted that he couldn't concentrate on his exam for almost 30 minutes which is a lot! I wonder if that girl was deliberately doing it to reduce competition for herself???? Hmmm...interesting tool huh ;). I sure many people can have their way out with such mechanisms but then why should we be victims such fashion hazards?????
