Why when we see a woman outside dressed provocatively, we call her "trashy" because she is dressed in a certain manner. Is that somewhat hypocritical? Should it matter how a person is dressed ever? I am not discussing whether or not they were/are/will be raped or assaulted. Because I doubt that we are concerned with the other woman's well-being. But why as women do we allow this thinking to pervade our thoughts? Why do we get upset over how other women are dressed? Is it jealousy or something else? Why is an expression of a woman's sexuality through fashion, still such an issue? I mean there was a time before WWI that showing your ankle was considered provocative. And what about those "Cindy Brady" dresses of the 70's? You couldn't wear those now. Yet those were acceptable even on adults.

People should care how they dress because that's the first thing people see. How you dress and how you carry yourself tells a lot about you as a person. There is a big difference between sexy and trashy. Also, there is a time and place for everything. I actually love the 50's style dresses, to me that it very sexy.

" I also love 50s dresses..hell, anything 50s - that's my decade! Too bad I was born 3 decades later..haha. "
Funny, I thought I was the only one. I also love 50's jewelry. Back in the day I was a car show model. The only shows I wanted to do were classic cars because the girls got to dress up in all 50's style clothing. Absolutely loved it! :) The 50's style pin ups are sexier than anything around today that's for sure.

Well, they aren't the same things. Dressing for success and dressing for a bar are two totally different things. You can dress how you want but you also won't be respected or taken seriously in the business world either.

I agree that it's hypocritical but as my son so eloquently told me "We have to live in the real world and not TV world." Unfortunately, women are judged harshly by the manner in which they dress. Personally, I'd like to wear whatever I damn well please, whenever I please, but the consequences are not worthwhile. Wasn't it Malcolm X who once said "You can tell the quality of a nation by the manner in which their women dress?" SUCKS
