It's rather ironic that since 1980s, the population has generally gotten larger and sloppier, hiding bodies, not tucking in shirts, and ignoring fashion altogether.
There was something inside of us as kids that wanted to resemble the others on the playground or, at least, fit in and be accepted. I recall crying for a week, wanting some double-zipper jeans.
Thankfully, my mom saw what was going on and instead convinced me to up the game and get a pair of jeans with a sideways zipper. No one in school had that! She didn't realize it, but right then she made me brave enough to take a trend and make it my own.
