Some things are coming back into fashion

Discussion of fashion elements and looks that are traditionally considered somewhat "femme" but are presented in a masculine context. This is NOT about transvestism or crossdressing.

Some things are coming back into fashion

Post by Uncle Al »

Well, I couldn't believe my eyes. The other day in Walmart, I saw - hanging
on a rack, Bell-Bottom pants for women. They could pass for Palazzo Pants,
but the legs were not wide enough for the fabric to freely flow as you walked.

Anyway - what is old, is new again :D

I just knew if I held on to my old jeans long enough I’d be fashionable again. Did you see any shirts with penny round collars, or knitted striped tank tops?. I’m looking forward to making a fortune on EBay

Someone here who works at the university wears them, though she's got a "modern hippy" vibe going on. They don't look particularly bad, although it's a style I'd never try myself.

At IKEA last week, there was a lady wearing monstrously large jeans. Like, if you made the entire width of the leg the size of the bottom of the bell. I've never seen anything like it before, she was in her 30's, so maybe being uber-trendy? Looked like elephant legs. Not making fun, just was genuinely curious.

It could be worse. It could be "skinny jeans".

Heh - those are everywhere. Even on the guys. In fact, it’s guys wearing skinny jeans, pink hoodies and running gear casually that has given me hope that styles can change. For the better? Maybe not, but it is change, and it is happening.
