Breaking news: no sleeves!

Have you turned on the news lately? Anchor women are going sleeveless and everywhere you turn, you find this new uniform; sleeveless blouses/dresses and exposed arms – even in the cold winter months. I’m wondering … who sent these women the memo?? Could it be a response to our First Lady’s penchant for sleeveless dresses? My mother, Claire, and my neighbor, Jean, first brought this phenomenon to my attention. Initially, I noticed just a handful of participants, but now I see that among the younger news women the trend is spreading. Everyone is dressing this way; local newscasters to more well-known names, like NBC’s Natalie Morales and ABC’s Katie Couric.

Should we be reading into this? Is it just a passing fancy or simply a passing thought? Do we care?

What do we think?

  1. So glad you brought this up because I have been ranting about this for well over a year now.
    The achor women all look like they’re going to cocktails parties, and the dresses! When they
    sit down, well, I seeing more than I want!
    Not to single out Gail King, on CBS, but she must go to the stylist and say, well this fits nicely,
    give it too me two sizes smaller.
    Well I could go on some more, but you get my drift.

      • Hi Mel,
        Just thought of another thing that women on TV do, not only are there dresses too tight but when a guest comes on and sits down, a lot of times their SPANX show!!! Have seen this more times than I can count.
        Now my rant is over for now.

      • I haven’t seen that, Maggie, but I will be looking now! I have enjoyed your passionate responses – just what I love!! Thank you! xx, Mel

  2. I had not noticed that! I had just noticed the “going out to a night club” dress code for the news ladies! And you are probably right…the first lady DOES set the tone for fashion…just like the British Royalty. (i.e. Diana and Katherine).
