The Laws of Fashion

July 12, 2012

While perusing one of my favorite websites, The Gloss, I stumbled upon a few interesting facts about fashion and the law.

Did you know that it is illegal for women to wear patent leather shoes in Cleveland, Ohio, …”lest men see reflections of underwear”? Seriously?

In Georgia, it is against the law to change a mannequin’s clothing in a storefront, unless the shades are drawn.

In Fargo, North Dakota, one may be jailed for wearing a hat while dancing, or to a place where dancing occurs.

In New York City, it is illegal for a woman to wear “body hugging clothing” and it is also illegal for a man to turn around and look at said woman.

My daily walk to the gym just became a walk on the wild side.
If this law is enforced, construction workers will be wearing hard hats with horse blinders on them!

Does your state have any strange and outdated laws on the books?
