|Who What Wear|
Lately the classic rules of fashion are toppling like dominoes. We're now free wear white jeans in winter, pair navy with black, mix and match our belts, bags, and shoes, put on pearls and sequins first thing in the morning, etc. etc.
So what about the rule that says you should never wear a trend that you wore the first time around? I'm hoping this old chestnut is teetering too.
I love long printed rayon skirts. I wore them in the 80s and now they're back. I love the way they drape, and their colorful floral patterns.
I loved them so much that I still have a few in the back of my closet. The style looks fresh again, and I'm noticing more long skirts out and about the hotter the weather gets.
I think with a t-shirt and flip flops it's a great summer look for a woman of any age. And it's a lot more wearable than the tiered boho peasant skirt that's been making the rounds lately.
But I know it's not a case of anything goes. There are definitely some retro trends I instinctively avoid. I'm not tempted by rompers, overalls, or acid washed jeans, because I know I would look ridiculous and I never liked them to begin with. But a long swish of skirt around my ankles in the heat of the summer, that's somehow a different story. (By the way, you can find lots of long rayon crepe skirts in thrift stores these days for a song if you want to try out the look.)
What do you think? Would you take a trend for a second spin?
