What comes around, goes around. That phrase is particularly relevant when it comes to fashion. I was peeking at my Instagram account this morning, and I stumbled upon pictures posted by one of the many amazing designers I follow, Versace. I was spellbound by the most eye catching plaids that I’ve seen in years.
Now plaids have been popular during many a fashion season, but this particular 2018 collection is reminiscent of attire worn by the character Cher Horowitz in the classic 1995 movie Clueless. The 1990’s had a very distinctive style, much like every decade. The trick is for the designer to add a fresh twist to an old favorite to make something we’ve seen before look totally new and unique. Versace very successfully achieved this goal. The contrasting colors that work so well together, along with the pattern mix, create a magical and memorable look.
I recall back in the mid 1980’s my late Uncle David had an awesome pair of paisley swim trunks. Paisley was quite “in” at that time, and I was impressed that he was so on point fashion-wise. When I asked him where he acquired them, Uncle David responded, “I have no idea. I got them 20 years ago.”
So hold on to your favorite fashion people…If you wait long enough, it will come back in style.
