Another day, another ad that tries to make people buy their products by making you feel bad about your body. I don’t want to harp on this subject, but it seems to be everywhere these days.
Yesterday while en route to find a bike rental place, some friends and I came across this wonder of an ad from GAP. Yep, put on some pants because we all can’t look good in shorts.
Well, duh. Shorts are not a flattering item of clothing unless you’re fairly toned and fit. But let’s also keep in mind that people wear shorts because, well it’s hot outside.
I used to fully believe that shorts should never be worn in the city. This has changed. It’s hot, and as long as you have a pair that actually FIT you, then they are fine.
What’s even funnier is that in another window, GAP is advertising for their Jeggings and not everyone looks good in those either, but as long as GAP can sell them to you they don’t really care.
