We where out and about this morning and this woman walked by with hair that I swear looked like it jumped off the head of Dog the Bounty hunter! To top it off she was wearing a hunting orange tube top dress with camouflage boots and yellow yes yellow socks! She was obviously with family. Now here it is. If you where going out with a family member dressed like an 80's buoy would you tell them they need a style update?

Wow you almost described Dog's Wife there! Though she is more stylish. If I were out with a friend who looked like she stepped out of the 80's, I'd tell her that and in the nicest way possible. It can be an embarrassment to see people who are dressed like that as others do laugh at the person's expense. Even though I'd love them regardless, I'd still want them to know they need to update their wardrobe.

I am all for self expression and all but I would be concerned for their feelings. I know not everyone can handle being laughed at or pointed at but they just don't see what it is they are doing sometimes.

well if it was my family member then i would definitely tell him or her to go change and maybe be the one to choose what clothes to wear and i would say i wont go out with him or her if she/he wears something like that hahahha

I would have to laugh. Luckily my family isn't quite that bizarre. My grandson has been wearing his mothers winter boots around. I have make afew comments, asked him what he is thinking, etc. I have gone through the black clothes and white make-up with my granddaughter and the weirdness of my daughter's dress. Nothing much phases me anymore. I let them know I don't like it but I respect their right to individuality and if others don't like it TOUGH! I didn't have a family to impress anybody.

Weird I can handle if they look good in it or at least not gross but this was a little yucky, It might of been the armpit fat hanging over the tube top that really did me in

Lol...yes I would! But I wouldn't be able to insist on it. I can't force my opinion on them....and would obviously have to tag them along if they insisted on coming in that attire.

It takes a lot of guts for a person to wear such style. But if that person is someone from my family I definitely let them know in a nice way.

Some people could carry it while others can't. For a family member who couldn't, i would really say it to her face. I don't mind if she gets mad at me, I know she'll get over it. I just can't keep mum about it when it looks awful and we would be walking together. Don't wanna be identified as her relative lol!

Does it really reflect on the family or just the person?

Yeah, I would tell a family member if he/she dressed like someone from the 80's. It would hurt a bit, yes, but at least it comes from someone he/she knows personally and to whom he/she is close to. It would be out of good intention.

I am sure there are nice ways to do so, don't you?

Yes, I am afraid I would say something to hint at the weird style of dress. However, it really wouldn't bother me much. I'm pretty easy going and if that is the way she likes to dress, that is her decision in life. On the flip side, I bet she got a lot of odd stares and looks.
