The Daily Prompt says:
Ah, sweet youth. No matter whether you grew up sporting a fedora, penny loafers, poodle skirts, bell-bottoms, leg-warmers, skinny jeans, Madonna-inspired net shirts and rosaries, goth garb, a spikey mohawk, or even a wave that would put the Bieber to shame, you made a fashion statement, unique to you. Describe your favorite fashions from days of yore or current trends you think are stylin’.
Growing up I followed the crowd and wore what was “in”- bell bottoms, hukapoo shirts, shirts made of 100% polyester with animals all over them in different colors
bell bottoms, with fringes
and a middle part in my hair like everyone else. Venturing out to find my own style was not something I was comfortable doing.
Once in my twenties and working, my wardrobe consisted of classic styles, plaid and solid skirts, blouses, pretty boring, but wearable for a few years as the style was always in.
The older I got, I seemed to be drawn to classic clothes and lace. Lace seems never to go out of style and the last few years has been all the rage. Fashionista? No. Comfortable in what I am wearing? Yes. Not really trying to make a statement, just being who I am.
