But when does our future get here? Or will it always be Trends vs Trek?
We keep having cycles of trends instead of Trek-like simplicity. The future of clothing may never arrive. Looking back at my school days I wish I'd had a uniform. It would have made dressing so much simpler. And I know, folks who had uniforms often tell me they wished they'd had "normal" clothes. The grass is always greener... The uniforms we may or may not wear in the "future" will certainly make dressing easy. But where's the fun in that? How do I express my love of retro nipped waistlines and full-skirts in an adult onesie?
I don't mind cycling trends. Ones I like always come around again. (Harem pants are not one of them! Oy! How did those ever resurface?) And the near infinite variety of clothing lets us express our individuality as well as our common ground. And you guessed it, in the upcoming posts we will be discussing the fall trends. Which ones work, which ones to ignore or even run from. If, like me, the fall weather hasn't hit your area yet it's only a matter of weeks. And every new season is a reason to assess your style and tweak where necessary, even if you don't buy a single new item.
