Men's opinion on out-there female trends

Three guys' takes on out-there trends

Gladiator Boots

"The female leg should be celebrated and exalted, not bound and gagged. ... In that boot, no one will be looking at the leg — (but they'll understand) the pain of a gladiator and a lot more of Russell Crowe's anger management issues."

"Way too much. Too S&M, too much bondage."

"[Gladiator boots are] daring, whether we like it or not. ... Some things do evolve from grunge rock! Courtney Love is smiling."

Three-finger rings

Three-finger ring by Lillian Crowe, $122 at Trashy Diva (2048 Magazine St., 504-299-8777; 829 Chartres St., 504-581-4555; www.trashydiva.com).

"I like the whimsical homage to the great pyramids, while being current with the big stud trend. Pun intended."

"Three-finger rings add gravitas to any outfit. A good place for them: paired with business attire or any casual outfit (preferably business attire)."

"The much-evolved designer version of its predecessor: brass knuckles. Street and punk enter the mainstream."

Body Chains

"It could be attractive, however ... entanglement is a given. Imagine a mishap involving a revolving door!"

"The body chain is a sexy women's accessory ... For the fearless girl who can show off enough skin to show off her body chains, by all means, do your thing."

"I've seen a few examples of this working. Hard to pinpoint if pop is going S&M or if S&M is becoming pop."
