What was in last year? Can you even remember any trends pre-rompers, ankle boots, gladiator sandals, or peg legged? As styles seem to be getting more and more bizarre, it’s a good idea to take a step back and find a way to update looks from a previous season. Obviously a great money-saving tactic, taking advantage of firmly established fads and sprucing them up a bit with some modern items is a great way to get plenty of mileage out your wardrobe in this down economy. Take a look at the 2009 take on these 2008 (and previous years’) hot items:
Maybe it’s the economic downturn, or maybe it’s the desire to wear every color of jewel without investing in any real pieces, but faux gemstone jewelry is all the rage this summer. While many of us have scoured yard sales, kiosks, and street vendors for the most “real looking” costume jewelry, celebrities have started to flagrantly sport glass diamond bracelets and fake pearl lavalieres, forgoing any attempts to conceal their “disposable diamonds” of spurious composition.
Many of us are struggling during these difficult financial times, and inflated prices on a fixed income often means cutting out the luxuries, like, say, shopping. However, old habits die hard, and if you’ve spent the pre-recession years filling up your shopping cart with the newest trends, you’re probably hard-pressed to give up your fashion fix. So this summer, instead of running up a huge bill with lots of separates, look for just a few pieces that pack a big style punch. The latest trend to step onto the scene? The jumpsuit, an economical combination of a top and bottom that has garnered mixed reviews but, ultimately, can become a modish staple to any recessionista wardrobe.
Perhaps in denial of the tanking economy, organizations have been capitalizing on the booming economic culture displayed during the Roaring Twenties. So seems the case in two very successful galas that adopted this as their theme in downtown DC.
