Somewhere along the way people stopped recognizing sex appeal and started embracing chauvinism and trashiness.
Once upon a time, not so long ago, form fitting clothes and fashions with flattering bust lines and proper accessories were the rule of day for anyone who wished to display sex appeal. Accentuating curvaceous hips and ample bust lines with subtlety and class in an age appropriate manner has all but vanished. It’s been replaced sadly by teen girls barely out of their adolescence so obsessed with the notion of sex appeal that they exude no class or fashion sense and dress as scantily clad as possible. I’m no prude…far from it in fact. But then again, I’m an adult. Kids should dress like kids. They have the rest of their lives to be looked at like a piece of meat if that’s what they choose but when they are adults. Enjoy your childhood. It’s over far too soon.
There are so many examples of women in pop culture who exude sexual confidence and appeal and dress appropriately to their body shape. They have style and grace, even those who work in the adult industry. Take Dita Von Teese for example: She’s a celebrity model and burlesque dancer. She is hands down one of the sexiest women alive with a unique retro fashion sense and she works for the better part relatively nude and yet at no time could you describe her as trashy or inappropriate. A beautiful example of dignified class and sex appeal and yet Miley Cyrus and those of her ilk have become the example.
It’s a sad state of affairs that our kids have the poorest examples of class front and center stage. The fact that these trends are learned at so young an age these days has led to an entire generation of girls dressing like Tuesday night strippers. I weep for the future.
What do you think? Which is sexy? Which is just trash?
