Sometimes you look at something the youngsters are wearing and you think, “Am I just too old to get this?” Not that anything here is difficult to comprehend:
But to our eyes, the silhouette of that dress is horrible and unflattering. But we’d just bet some under-21 is reading our harrumphs right now and thinking, “These queens think every dress has to be skin tight. GOD.” But we don’t, imaginary youth! We swear it! We’re all for loose and flowy dresses. But that waist is situated so low that it elongates her torso way out of proportion. And truth be told, it gives her the illusion of an ever-so-slight belly bump. And if that wasn’t bad enough, it shrinks her bust and narrows her shoulders. And that is not a sleeve length any gal under 70 should be thinking about. In short, it’s fug.
Call us old if you must, youth of America, but you mark our words, in two decades’ time you’ll be looking back and kicking yourself for your normcore and your grandma chic and your ugly hipsterism. “Dammit,” you’ll collectively say as one, “Why didn’t I show my ass off back when it was hot?”
Not that Selena Gomez has ever shied away from showing off the goods when she wanted to. We’re all for her taking a vacation from body-con getups, but this shapeless thrift store look isn’t doing anything for her.
Do you all hate us for kind of liking the sheer booties?
