over in my working place, people go gaga over fashion. students go to classes like going to a prom/rave party/club/rock concert (choose an appropriate occasion suiting to your personality). i dont really mind actually.. it's nice to see something new and different everyday. however it crosses the line when u see a guy with full white tux under the scorching sun. pretending that it's not burning his ass off for the sake of style. well that's the extreme example lah.. im not saying that im that innocent as well. u can also see me wearing a black sweatshirt over a shirt at noon as well.. but it's due to the nature that i must wear something black and if i didn't do that, i don't know when will i have the chance to wear all my colored shirts. so, pardon me lah ye?? =D
the not so extreme ones would be the color combination. sometimes, the combination makes you go WTF!!?? imagine spandex blue, with bright florescent yellow top and covered with a 'lacoste' green vest and a bright purple bag. it defies all logic! simply intolerable... a sin to my eyes. usually, i'd be getting these violation from girls... now men are also into this 'defy coloring conventions' posse. yeaa... yeaa... i know lah you're indie... you laaa hipsters... but when men started wearing yellow pants.. it makes you wonder for a while (btw.. you're not Hailey from Paramore.. u cant pull that one off. DEAL WITH IT!!).
as for exposure.. i don't really care bout how much skin you're showing to the world. it's your body, your temple, your 'wonderland'.. so you decide yourself. if you're talking bout preference, i'd say the principle 'buka atas bawah tutup, buka bawah atas tutup' would apply (credit to ladyesah =D). if you're wearing something short up and down.. somehow.. it'll look cheap (just my opinion). i once dated a girl and she wore a small tube for top and a very short skirt and nothing more.. and i was like.. "WTF!!?? i'm going out for a date, im nowhere near the red light district!!" (no offenses please, girls.. my preference.. not your future bf's xD). what really turns me on would be something more subtle.. something suggestive.. off shoulders perhaps.. something like this...

as for men.. you can never go wrong with a t-shirt and a pair of jeans. well... if u're the experimental type, go ahead.. just dont end up looking like a clown with all the bright mismatched colors or end up looking gay(not the happy one... the sexual one!). preference? a nice ol' printed t-shirt works well for me.. something like these:-
Figure 1.3, 1.4, 1.5, 1.6 & 1.7 Familiar?

all in all... fashion is up to an individual to determine. i'm just giving my two cents opinion on the issue. if u agreed with me.. well nice that we agreed on something. if u didn't.. well.. it's really not my problem anyway.. so you can screw yourself all you want.. xD
