I have never been a huge fan of the formal shorts, as you know, but where I really draw the line is SHINY formal shorts.
These scream, “LOOK HERE. LOOK RIGHT HERE INTO THE EYE OF MY VAGINAL VORTEX.” But maybe that’s the idea, because surely nobody wants to look at the jacket’s ridiculous bow. If your design feature is wilting on the vine, CLIP IT and MOVE ON, people. You do not want to die on that hill. Belly Button Bow is not worth it.
