Currently, fashion has made a total overhaul and given an overall transfusion to those items that made style in the past, so stylish.  Lets bring forth Exhibit A, the magic of tights A/K/A panty hoses — yes that name makes everyone cringe – but lately, little by little tights have taken over fashion and have become a vital accessory to any outfit. Panty hoses became fashionable as they were introduced in the 1960s to provide a convenient alternative to stockings.  Now tights come in so many colors and forms: neon, graphics, lace, leather, metallic, they are so incredibly chic and they perform their role to perfection.  I guess granny is not old-fashioned anymore.

Now lets focus on Exhibit B, headbands and barrettes.  Besides Gossip Girl, these accessories were only stylish back in the days, mainly in private schools, where girls were obligated to use them in order to keep their hair away from their faces.  At the present time, hair accessories of the best caliber will easily sale for amounts as high as $400! They are so cute that simply it is worth the splurge.

And finally Exhibit C, brooches, yes those little “clip ons” that really had no real purpose but signified heritage and class.  This decorative jewel dates back to the Romans, Greeks and research has even found some as late as the 800 A.D! Today, brooches are used as a way to express your style and creativity.

So look around, do you see any fashion revivals?
