Not too long ago, in fact it was in the May 31, 2012 edition of the Wall Street Journal, I saw this article called: Jean Mutation: How Red, Pink and Mustard Took Over. It says ‘Bye, Bye, Blues…J Brand jump-started the color trend in Feb. 2011. Since then, many denim brands have followed with bright, distinctive hues such as mustard, green and red.’ The article’s author, Christina Binkley says, ‘It’s hard to miss the season’s most prominent denim trend: blinding color!’
Here’s what they look like.
Now, let’s jump back to 1984! Here I am in my SFD hot pink jeans with turquoise blouse trimmed in hot pink. They were skinny, very trim fitting jeans designed from the SFD Pants Kit. I may not be tall and skinny or wearing high platform shoes, but I loved them!
Though they wouldn’t fit me now, you can see why I say ‘Everything old is new again!’ If you wait long enough, the fashion cycle rolls back around and our old clothes become the newest fashion.
