Omiru Poll Results: Humor Tees are Out

Omiru Poll Result: Humor Tees are Out

Omiru Poll Result: Humor Tees are OutWe asked: Are Humor Tees In or Out?

You said: Humor Tees, despite their celeb sightings, are Out.  57% voted them out, and another 26% think they’re on the way out.  However, a sizeable minority (23%) are still rocking this trend.

Omiru’s take:
Sure, these tees may be amusing on Lindsay or Paris, but they’re not for everyone.  If you’re looking for attention, you might want to try a bold color or a unique accessory instead.  However, we don’t want to throw out the baby with the bathwater–humor tees aren’t necessarily unstylish.  Our rule of thumb?  If in 10 years you would be embarassed to see a picture of yourself in the tee, leave the tee on the shelf.

Next Question: You told us that The Color White is In.  Our last few shopping trips, however, have turned up shades of purple and lilac.   Tell us, is The Color Purple In, or is it Out?  Cast your vote on

Omiru Poll Results: Cowboy Boots are Out!

Omiru Poll Result: Cowboy Boots are Out

Omiru Poll Result: Cowboy Boots are OutWe asked: Are Cowboy Boots In or Out?

You said: Out.  The breakdown?  A slight majority (56%) think Cowboy Boots are over, and another 26% believe they’re on the way out.  Only 18% are still saddling up in these boots.

Omiru’s take: Sienna Miller may have brought these riding boots to the city streets, but she’s since moved on…and so have we.  We’re still all over boots for Fall (who wouldn’t be), but leave this style back on the cattle ranch where it belongs.  Instead, opt for a more elegant, graceful boot that matches the elegance of Fall’s ladylike trends–think Grecian draping, capes and capelets, and opera-worthy gloves. 

Next Question: Amusing (and sometimes risqué), humor tees are a staple among Young Hollywood and are almost as universal as uber-processed denim.  Tell us, what do you think about these humor tees?  Are they
In, or are they Out?  Cast your vote on
