Fashion Pieces I Don’t Understand

Sometimes I see something online and just despair.


I know I’m not exactly what you would call uber fashionable.  I wear what I like to wear and feel comfortable in and that’s not necessarily always the latest trends or something that’s featured heavily on the catwalks but I do understand fashion and how it can be quirky and a bit out there.

But come on, a crisp packet clutch?

Why on earth would you want to carry around a crisp packet as a bag in everyday life?  WHY?

Then I was having a browse on ASOS when I put together this post and found these.


Sandal Toe Tights. Really.  REALLY.

One might be forgiven for thinking that these are just a strap that goes over your toes.  I certainly did when I looked at the image on the ASOS Curve page as it actually looks like the tights have been photoshopped off the model.

After reading the description, it would seem that these are supposed to be proper tights but with this random sandal toe strap in rather than the full foot of the tights.

Very strange.  I am yet to find someone who wears tights with toe post sandals but hey, I might be wrong.

What are the fashion pieced you’ve seen recently that you don’t understand?

    Haha this is a funny post, I definitely don't understand why anyone would want to carry that first thing… it's just weird looking! And the tights look like something for medical reasons! Haha thanks for the laugh! 🙂

      I guess some people want the natural colour of tights, I just dont understand the bit between the toes… unless its to keep them from riding up! xxx

    I totally agree about the clutch…it's just weird. Now, don't freak out, I wouldn't wear those tights with sandals (that's just weird but in Warsaw, where I'm living now I bet they would go over really well. Girls/Women of all ages wear horrible tan tights with everything…) I would wear those tights with boots. I hate the feeling of tights in my boots so I usually wear footless ones!xostyleontheside.com

    Wow the clutch is totally not my thing either…. lol very interesting. Now the tights though, I kind of like! Maybe I'm strange however I think they'd be great for open toed heels. Now I don't wear tights that often, but do prefer them in the cooler months… But I hate the look of tights with open toe heels. And actually now that I think about it… these kind of seem like a good idea to me in general even with close toes heels because my toe nails always seem to make a hole in tights (where my big toe nail rubs the rights against my shoes. Lol I probably keep my toenails longer than most. Haha But anyways… Yeah I kind of like the idea. 😉

      Lol it is interesting isn't it! I have seen open toe tights before, which I totally understand as I hate the feeling of tights on my toes, its the bit that goes around the big toe that I dont understand! xxx

    Those tights are so strange! The thought of them between my toes like that makes me quite uncomfortable… Urgh! I don't know who comes up with these ideas :/Jess xohttp://just-jesss.blogspot.co.uk

    Haha, you made me giggle with this! Mind you, I might actually try the sandal toe tights with open toed pumps. I really wanted to wear some the other night but I was in full stockings because it was too cold, so I had to resort to wearing full pumps instead. It seems like something that might be a bit trial and error with the exact pairs of shoes you pick though!
