There’s an old saying that goes “everything old is new again.” I’ve been around long enough to see that, especially in the fashion industry. I read in the newspaper that skinny-leg pants are now “out” and wide pants are “in.” I’m happy to hear this because someday I’d be able to get that box out of the attic and once again begin to wear wide-leg pants; however, when I first wore them they were called bell-bottoms. Unfortunately, through the years my waist size has increased along with my wardrobe.

Other items that seem to be coming back are pants that just skim the ankles-they were called high-water pants in my day; big chunky jewelry and lots of bracelets, which my mother called costume jewelry; and, of course, the baby doll tops that are so popular now. I wore that style 13 years ago-it was called maternity clothing.

Another phenomenon which has taken the fashion world by storm is low-rise pants. Back in my day they were called hip-huggers. I remember I had a crushed-velvet purple pair. Looking back now, maybe it’s best that some fashion statements don’t come back into style.
