Some of you lovely readers may not be old enough to have lived through trends more than once, but I know many of you – like me – have. Neon, gauchos, slides/mules, midriff-baring shirts, and pegged jeans are all things I saw as a youngster and watched swing back into trendy favor again in recent years. I’ve heard some say that if you’ve lived through a trend once, you should pass on it the second time around … but I don’t adhere to that. When trends re-emerge, they’re often tweaked to fit contemporary sensibilities; Similar but not identical. And if you want to try them again, go for it.
But I will admit that I NEVER thought I’d want to wear neon or gauchos or pegged jeans again … and I did. I wanted to wear them and I wore them. Never say never, right?
Think about trends you participated in earlier in your life, then saw come back into fashion. Are there any you SWORE you’d never wear again … then changed your mind and embraced them?
