This week's Carnival of the Couture is being hosted by The Fashionable Kiffen. Her topic rendered me breathless: "What item/style/look do you wish would become a trend? Or what trend from the past would you like to resurrect?" The choices are overwhelming for this style-nostalgia junkie -- I want to see almost everything come back except that which has apparently come back with a vengance this season, the abomination otherwise known as footless leggings.
I know, however, that sooner or later everything filters through women's fashion again, and luckily for those women who are too impatient for designers to get it right, vintage is an acceptable option. Alas, it takes a lot longer for men's clothing to change, so it's unlikely that men will make a regular habit of wearing evening clothes in my lifetime. What a tragedy, nothing makes a man look better than a classic tuxedo, and white tie is absolutely swoon-worthy. More important, nothing makes a man look less like K-Fed than a sharp set of evening clothes, as the two starlicious gentlemen (Robert Montgomery on left, Clark Gable on the right) pictured demonstrate. They make that hussylicious woman between them look better, too. *lesigh*
