We’ve already established the fact that most trends shouldn’t be brought back. But there is a case to be made for some looks of decades gone by, if you’re willing to overlook the fact that nothing will ever be as comfortable as jeggings and flip-flops.
That said, when it comes to what trend to bring back, I’m going to throw the immense weight of my support behind stockings and garters.
To let you in on how this all went down, here are a few pros and cons that I debated before issuing this momentous and sure to be widely-televised statement:
Pro: They look sexy.
Con: They only look sexy if they’re not giving you muffin top of the thigh.
Pro: Kate Middleton is already bringing back stockings.
Con: Why would you want to dress like royalty if you don’t get to go to any ribbon-cutting ceremonies?
Pro: You get to slide them up over your leg every morning, thereby starting your day by feeling like a superstar burlesque performer.
Con: They itch like fuck.
Pro: They make pissing easy, compared to regular stockings.
Con: You know what makes pissing even easier? No stockings.
In rereading this, I see that I haven’t made a great case for stockings and garters. Even so, at the end of the day I’m going to call it in favor of the look. If something has to come back, let’s make it something classy, sexy and elegant. Who’s with me?
