Retro Chic: Are the Old Favorites Coming Back?

There’s not much that’s truly new and unique in this world. It might come a surprise to the young that many of the fancy products they so enjoy are based on ideas invented  half a century ago.

Fashion certainly sees trends come and go.  There’s even an economic theory that hemlines can be a predictor of financial health. Harper’s Bazaar recently predicted miniskirts and knee-high boots would make a comeback and this prediction is supported by the BlogHer/Taubman Centers 2013 Style Study.  So if hemlines are going up and we’re headed for a 60s ‘bright colors and short skirts’ revival, what should the stylish over 50 woman wear this fall?
