5 Shorts And Skirts to have made a Comeback

Friday 15 May 2015 /

Fashion is Cyclical .It recycles old trends and resurfaces into modern versions. Which is why one should never throw away its old. For most of us nostalgia controls the culture, which our designers without even the blink of an eyelid, gives and shapes of re-main-streaming , and we all adapt it, without blinking an eyelid too.

Today lets take a look back on the styles of the past , particularly the skirts and shorts styles which are having a moment in the sun right now. Since these styles have fully returned back in a ceremonious manner,its safe to say that we have missed these fashion staples more than any legendary sitcom.
Here's what's back and trending.
  • Printed Shorts- Fashion in the 90s was generally loose fitting. Our T-shirts were big and our shorts were even bigger. Teens were digging through dad's boxes to get their hands on some authentic bigger size pants which they could taper with few folds an make it Bermuda length. That's how it got its name too. The style originated with the British Army for wear in tropical and desert climates . Come 2014 and Grandma called and she wanted her shorts back. The hem's length also makes it extremely versatile as the new summer trousers stretching to office to, dinner to parties and beaches in no time these shorts became the real conversation starters and easier to pull off than we all think. So whether its a bold printed short or a classic middleton , the point is these playful prints are coming out of the hiding.
