I saw this in a magazine today & immediately had an overwhelming feeling of social anxiety. I haven't encountered this situation yet. Utah isn't the fashion capital of well anything, so I have some time to formulate a plan. It's not the cropped pants that I object to. It's the cropped pants as work wear complete with high heels & hosiery. If I ever saw someone dressed this way I would have no choice but to say:
Ha ha you have funny bottoms!
You left the bottom half of your pants at home.
It's pirate day already?
You can pretend it's a skirt, but it's not.
She's obviously a pretty girl. Anyone wearing that would intentionally be trying to look good. So what's the proper protocol? Do I just hide behind a mail cart? Avoid eye contact? Try not to stare? Think less of the person & blog about them later? What would you do in that situation? I just want to know so that if I ever get an office job HR won't drag me from the building while I point & yell "funny bottoms tee hee funny bottoms."
