Heather Plaid Cloth Skirts Are Back In Style: Would You Wear Them?
Old Is New Again At Talbots
Talbots once very traditional in style (black, red, grey. beige, brown) has been fooling around over the years with updated brighter.color combinations. This year, they seem to be back on a familiar holiday track (for them). But that doesn't mean they aren't trying some hip new "old" palettes.
When Is Retro Hip And When Is It Dated?
A few days ago, Talbots was featuring a display which included clothes in a heathered blue-aqua color.
Some of the updated Retro looks are fun but others remind me too much of a "grandma-ish" look (defined as woman who are still wearing the "originals").
Who remembers heathered sweaters and skirts?
Would you wear them now?
