Sometimes it’s so much fun to play around with our clothing style and experiment with looks that we never even thought about adopting. Some looks can make you look like a completely different person. Whether it is a good thing or not remains a point of debate. Nonetheless, from undergarments to clothes we wear for grocery shopping, this experimental approach can be applied to all kinds of attire. It may or may not work for you. That’s a given. And looking at these pictures, it seems that people opted for such outlandish clothing most of the time that even E! channel’s fashion police will have a hard time determining their top ten fashion faux pas. Thinking about outlandish clothing, we cannot help but think that it’s a far departure from our everyday norms. So does it mean, wearing outrageous clothing to something so mundane as grocery shopping at Walmart could be a form of escapism?
Do people prefer wearing clothes that they usually won’t even think about because it allows them the freedom to escape the harsh and often humdrum realities of day-to-day life? Since there’s no legally recognized dress code for visiting a supermarket, people view it as an opportunity for self-expression or exercise self-control? Fashion psychologist Marleen Beevers says that it could be true because we “act as the protagonist throughout our life- nobody around to break the spell.”The reason could be anything. We leave it up to your imagination. But before making up your mind, have a look at the kind of outlandish attire we are referring to, which has compelled us to question the wearer’s sanity level. Let’s check them out.
Panting Without Pants
These ladies probably forgot to drop down her skirt while in the toilet. Could someone be this excited to shop at Walmart? Even kids these days aren’t as excited to go shopping as this woman seems to be. For such days when you cannot afford to dress up for beachside leisure, the best way to look good at a grocery store is throwing in your most well-fit boy shorts, bucket hat, a tank top, micro backpack, and summary slides.
That’s going to make you look hot and keep you cool during the warmer months of the year. Nothing exudes summery vibes more than a tee-shirt made with breathable material and slides. You should think about slipping into something a bit airier the next time you do shopping. Don’t forget to wear nice undergarments as they will boost your confidence.
Just another trip to the market
Quality underwear has the power to increase self-esteem levels, even when no one can see it, said behavioral psychologist and The Psychology of Fashion author Carolyn Mair. “Wearing nice quality underwear or lingerie sets boost our confidence and self-esteem, even if no one sees it. Feeling confident can make us appear more physically attractive because we tend to stand, walk, speak and gesticulate differently,” wrote Mair.
Maybe Walmart reacted after customers present around complained about that woman. But what do you think? Is it okay to wear just an overcoat and panties to a grocery store? What if she was a supermodel? Would they still have done the same with her?
Swimsuit at Walmart???
It seems as if this lady was part of a Baywatch kind of TV show or was going for a quick dip but decided to stop by Walmart to quench her thirst and get unnecessary attention from those inside the mart. Who can ignore a lady clad in a one-piece bikini when Walmart doesn’t even have any restrictions on shoppers’ clothing choices? Back in 2011, a lady in Oregon threatened Walmart to file a lawsuit against the store over bikini discrimination. Reportedly, the woman was kicked out of the store for wearing a bikini top she bought from the store.
And the million-dollar question is- is it illegal for a female to visit a store wearing a swimsuit? Technically speaking, it isn’t illegal. However, in our opinion, inappropriate would be a better word choice. There are certain situations where it is pretty appropriate for a female to enter a store in a swimsuit. Such as if it is a shop at the beach, a souvenir shop in a water park, or a tourist hotspot where everyone is clad in swimwear. But at Walmart, well, it definitely isn’t appropriate.
Sense and Sensibility- All Gone!!
This photo screams that the woman was shocked after looking at the price tag, and she pledged to get it for free because you can see the payment method she has opted for. What else can explain this photo? Probably she couldn’t figure out what to wear in that weather. We do agree, this isn’t the best of times to dress up. One minute it’s cool, and the next minute it’s hot. So, the scenario is quite tricky. But, girl, you are going shopping not to work. So, there’s little harm in wearing the best of your outfits; after all, it won’t take long. Maybe she believed it’s the supermarket so she would be safe from the prying eyes of the fashion police.
Believe it or not, it gives us the kind of vibes as if Walmart has turned into a runway and women like these in somewhat wild attires are out there to ramp walk. Okay, we get it that shopping has become a way to prove you can pull off almost anything from balloon-shouldered tweed coats to knee-high trainers and even this costume of a dress. But, we would still say that we liked the way things were before the pandemic. Ladies, please don’t go grocery shopping wearing the same clothes you were lounging in.
Milk and a Butterball
An actress role playing at Walmart. Since Hollywood roles are scarce Phoebe Price is now taking on the grocery markets. Thankfully, we have such handy apps like outfit planners. Many outfit planning apps are available nowadays that take out this dilemma from our lives for good. It’s a one-stop solution to all your wardrobe woes, in our opinion.
There’s nothing wrong with this lady’s outfit. Who knows, she also used one of these outfit planning apps to choose clothing for her, and this is the victorious look that you see in the picture.
