Sometimes, in the fashion world, a movement sweeps through and changes everything; skinny jeans, the return of bright colors, retro sunglasses-styles. These movements blow up and tend to hang around for a couple years, moving from runways to the public, eventually becoming looks for hipsters who wear these styles ironically.
Then there are movements that just don’t make a whole hell of a lot of sense; saggy pants, side-ponytails, backwards ball-caps. These looks initially make the wearer feel proud, like a peacock, and only come back to embarrass the once-proud peacock years later when someone finds the photos. Another look that will inevitably end up a part of the embarrassing list is the jorts-and-cowboy-boots look.
You may wonder what I mean by jorts. Jorts are Daisy Dukes, a pair of jeans cut into shorts (for our purposes “jirts” also means jean-skirts).
This look is retarded. It is the sartorial equivalent of wearing edible panties with a business pant-suit. No matter how “country” you’re trying to look, it ultimately just ends up looking like the prostitute escaped from the farmer’s fantasy-barn. I see this look a lot here in Texas, especially on younger women. I suppose it satisfies the urge to look both like a skank and an equestrian, so maybe it’s just a little role-playing. The thing is, there are much more sensible ways to look slutty and country. You could put spurs on stilettos, or maybe wrap a bra around your Stetson.
This looks fucking stupid.
