The seasons spiral on and on- they may seem the same but everything is always changing.
"Change is the only constant." This is a quote from my father, who has taught me a lot about life. He is a very wise man. My day job for the last 19 years has been working with him at the business he started in 1975. Digital Systems Sales, Inc. is a manufacturer's representative firm that specializes in selling computer-related products to manufacturers. Over the years we have seen many changes, from the companies we sell for, to the products we handle and even the people we deal with on a day to day basis. He has told me many times "change is the only constant in this business" and it is very true. I think it applies to life in general as well.
It certainly is true in the fashion world. Have you ever noticed how every few decades some styles come back into fashion? But the designers try to give them a new unique spin to fit the times we are living in. We change them to make them current. For instance, right now supposedly the 70's fashions are coming back into style but I don't think you'll see people walking around looking like Marcia from The Brady Bunch, or a character from The Village People. This spring and summer you will see a lot of long and flowy skirts with a gypsy or bohemian feel. Wide-leg jeans and pants with a more relaxed vibe may once more be popular (a great thing for those of us with an aversion to skinny-legged jeans and jeggings). Also, bright and colorful accessories like jewelry, handbags, and even shoes such as chunky platform sandals will add a confident and fun sense of nostalgia to today's fashion looks.
