Fashion cycles tend to repeat themselves every 2-3 decades. Many returning styles are fun and updated making for a fresh look. For instance, last summer I bought a really cute retro shirt at Elder Beerman. It was reminiscent of the 1960’s style, but with an updated twist and made from a crepe material. It was very pretty, but the first time I wore it, my boss asked me if I was going on tour with the Partridge Family. I still liked the shirt, I just bought a tambourine to carry around when I wore it.

The pants were bell-bottomed and worn over platform shoes.
What styles are you hoping never to see again?
MAKE IT A GREAT DAY!
