Omiru Poll Results: Military Fashion is Out

Military Poll Result

We asked: Is Military Fashion In or Out?

You said: Military fashion is an oxymoron.  36% of you are still all over military styles, but an equal percentage think the trend’s over.  And an additional 28% think they’re on the way out. 

Omiru’s take: While you didn’t bash this trend as hard as you did the leggings, it’s clear that military fashion (and might we say military action) is falling from favor.  Though it certainly isn’t a crime to sport the look (after all, we saw a military shoutout on p. 140 of this month’s InStyle), be aware that this trend is making its final descent into So-Last-Season-land.

Next Question: What with the rising temperatures, we’re seeing shorts (from short shorts to knee-length shorts) everywhere.  So tell us, what do you think about Shorts?  Are they In, or are they Out?  Cast your vote on the sidebar!

News Flash: Forever 21 for MEN

Forever 21 Men Spring 2006

Guys, if you feel that you’ve been missing out on the cheap chicness of Forever 21, you’re in luck.  The disposable fashion haven will be expanding its offerings into menswear this season.  

I wonder if they’ll keep the same branding for menswear.  And if so, will there be a stigma against guys wearing clothes branded Forever 21?
