“Sexy” clothes: if you have to say it, you ain’t it

There is a saying The Fashion Police love. The saying goes, "If you have to say it, you ain’t it." The truth of this can be seen, in no particular order, in:

* T-shirts with the word "Babe" or similar on the front of them. Seriously, how often do you actually see these on "babes"?

* People who describe themselves as "wacky" or "kerrazy". No, you’re not, you’re just tedious.

Nowhere is the truth of this saying more evident, however, than in the manufacture and sale of so-called "sexy" clothing. Because if there’s one thing we’ve learned in the course of our Police duties, it’s that if a website describes an item of clothing as "sexy", it almost always isn’t. As evidence of this, we submit exhibit A:

The "sexy romper". It’s just not sexy, is it? And how on earth would you get it off in an, er, hurry?

Of course, everyone has different ideas of what constitue’s "sexy" and that’s just fine. As far as The Fashion Police are concerned, though, this isn’t it.
