You know what makes me feel old? That nineties fashions are back. The other way we were walking and there was a gaggle of about eight teenage girls hanging out in the street and every single one of them was wearing cutoff jeans or short shorts made to look like cutoff jeans, with tights. Every.single.one.
It reminds me so much of what everyone used to wear to parties when I was 13. It was like a uniform: Black tights, denim cutoffs, black top. It’s so weird that it’s coming back, in such a literal way.
One thing that was also in fashion at the time (often worn together with the shorts) that I hope never comes back is what was called bodys in German, basically leotards with poppers between the legs. What was the point of that? They were never worn on their own, Jane Fonda style, it was always under something, so basically as a top. I’m not sure why that seemed such a good idea at the time, when you might as well have just worn a top.
I was looking for a current example, but all the girls in the streetstyle pictures were so thin that I didn’t feel it was an accurate representation of what I saw in the street. This is Scotland, you can’t say that many girls seem to be held back from wearing whatever is fashionable by being a bit chunky. So anyway, I went for a vintage pin-up picture instead (source)
