SheFinds Rants: Summer Doesn't Mean You Can Wear Your Underwear in Public

Bathing suits are for the beach, mini skirts and halter tops don’t belong at the office and hot shorts should just stay at home — you already know our take on short shorts. I don’t care how hot it is, but there has to be some line between what’s acceptable to wear in public and what’s not.

Case in point: a woman strutting through the supermarket in boyshorts (as in the kind you wear under your clothes) and an itty bitty tube top. I don’t care if it’s Cindy Crawford wearing the getup — it’s just not right. That kind of apparel is just not meant to be worn in public. Wear it in the confines of your home, flaunt it on the beach, but for the love of all things fashionable and civil, please don’t go showing your butt cheeks, tummy and boobs when I’m trying to buy groceries. Ugh.

I’m not alone in this, I swear. According to Styledash, a German bus driver became so distracted over a woman bearing too much cleavage that he threatened to throw her off the bus. This is a little extreme, but you get my point. Dressing skimpier and skimpier is just becoming a raging epidemic.

My unfortunate encounter in King Kullen is not the only case I’ve seen this summer. Scantily clad women are a dime a dozen, and while it may be hot, I wonder, “Haven’t these women ever heard of linen? A nice sundress, maybe?”

What do you think? Is hot weather a big enough excuse to wear next to nothing? Or should women learn to dress appropriately for the heat? Tell us your thoughts in the comments section. And, if you’d like some tips on dressing for the heat (fashionably), check out this guide to stylish dressing solutions for warm weather.
