Please Don’t Bring Back That Fashion Trend

Fashion has to be one of the most green industries out there.

Fashion is practically the inventor of recycling trends and invoking deja vu in consumers everywhere, afterall.  There is nothing as fun and inspiring as the re-envisioning of an old tired idea into something new and fresh, right?

Current fashion always seems to have a nod towards trends from 15-20 years back buried somewhere within it’s inspiration. Hence the return of the inherent 1970’s staple of flare jeans (bell-bottoms-lite?) during the late 1990’s. There was that whole bright neon thing that happened in the 2000’s that felt awfully 80’s inspiried. And the resurgence of plaid and grunge were certainly reapplied into a hipster-vibe in recent days.

Most flash-backs I enjoy. A little nostalgia re-imagined for today’s aesthetic is enjoyable and one of my favorite aspects of fashion and design.

However, not all history is pretty. Some of it should remain buried forever. Sometimes you MUST throw the baby out with the bathwater.

Some trends should never resurface.

I read a traumatizing article the other day, about fashion, and trends, and the revival of a certain look. A certain horrendous “fashion” if we can even use that term here.

It is terrifying.

I am talking about socks with sandals.

And this is pretty much how I feel about it:
