I'm sure I will get shit about this from someone, but I just have to say it: Chinese people have no sense of style or fashion whatsoever. Yes, there are a few stylish diamonds in the rough here, but by and large you see a lot of Hello Kitty and scrunchies and bad perms. The funniest part is that most of these people are pretty wealthy, so it's not like they can't afford to have stylish clothes. It's just that they think wearing a baggy t-shirt with the words "Louis Vuitton" equals cutting-edge fashion. And wearing their LV t-shirt with an ill-fitting red pleather mini-skirt, bedazzled pumps and with a patent leather bow belt? Well, that just kicks it up a notch.
Even when they do get their hands on a trendy piece of clothing, they somehow manage to mess it up. I was walking in Central the other day and saw a girl wearing baggy leggings (leggings!). The whole point of leggings is that they are tight.
Sadly it's not all women. I've noticed a new trend among Chinese men: harem jeans, a.k.a. MC Hammer pants. The pairs I've seen on the street don't stop there -- these Hammer pants are acid-washed to boot.
Can you handle the hotness??
