Who comes up with this stuff?

I got the August issues of In Style in the mail yesterday and had time today to flip through.  There is one article titled "10 New Style Statements".  It's all about breaking old rules and making a new fashion statement.  I want to know, in all seriousness, who comes up with this stuff?  Let me walk you through them:

(1) "Match Your Lips To Your Dress":  Here's my take:  since there is about a 98% chance my dress is going to be black, I'm thinking I don't need to be rocking the black lipstick.  Goth makeup and blond curls really don't mesh.

Let me provide illustrations for you on the rest...

(2) "Let Your Ends Hang Out": Okay, so I do this one by accident when I've sloppily put my hair up and (3) "Go Strapless For Day":  Yeah, because I don't have enough of a hard time keeping up with my crap every where I go.  That's just what I need a clutch purse...

(4) "Show Off Your Hem":  I've really got no problem with this.  I don't care if your hem hangs out below your skirt, but (5) "Rock Socks with Skirts":  Not unless you are under the age of 5!  If I see you doing this, I will mock you!
(6) "Mismatch your Prints":  I know a lady who dresses like this.  Not because she's edgy, but because she has zero sense of style.  Several years ago, my friend Lisa told her to pack up her wardrobe and not to let it see the light of day until she was 85.  I think this may make people believe you've graduated from Clown College.

(7) "Clash Eye Colors...":  Now I'm a fairly daring person when it comes to make-up.  I mean heck, I do own false eyelashes... I don't remember how to put them on, but that's beside the point.  However, wear this look and I'm afraid people will think you have escaped from Cirque du Soleil.
(8) "Denim on Denim":  Been there.  Done that.  I'm not going back.

(9) Untame Your Tresses":  "Let Your hair go Wild and Big" they say.  Finally! Something I'm 100% on board with!  Mainly because I have never really tamed my tresses, but I'll be cutting edge this fall!

(10) "Add Edge to Evening Wear":  Fine by me.  I don't wear evening wear, and am not really hip enough to add edge if I did. 

What do you think?  Are you girls on board with any of these?

I agree with all of your assessments. Especially the socks with dresses. Weird!!

I am not up for any of those except the ends loose. I put my hair up in a mess when I workout and my ends usually end up loose. Does that count?
