to hate rehashing of "fashions" that were horrible first time around?

In particular, jeans with elasticated bottoms teamed with espadrilles? They looked bloody awful 25 years ago, so who the jeff decided that they would look any better now?!

There is a woman at school who is one of those people that make you sick. First thing in the morning with no make up, hair scraped back and just in jeans and a tshirt she manages to look stunning. I would never want to stand next to her when she is dressed up! But she was wearing that combo this morning and even she looked bloody ridiculous!

The 80's were never style central but I really thought we had seen the last of espadrilles and elasticated anything!

I agree. I'm just awaiting the return of "two-tone" jeans. Or in fact any coloured jeans.

Jeans with cartoon transfers on the thighs.

My brother had some of those.

Quidsi - where have you been?! Coloured jeans have been in for ages!

Fanjo I'm obviously behind the times!
I have nightmares memories of everyone in sixth form wearing green jeans with a green body, red jeans with a red body, etc you get the picture!
Have they really come back??

People need to realise that some of these fashions are only meant for the under 16's. I've lost count of the amount of women i see wearing a different version of what there DD has on and looking awful in them.

Do they not look at their DD and see how it should look, then look at themselves and see how ridiculous they look, apparently not.

Ugh, those tulip skirts that make everyone look hideous came back again (but I think mercifully have gone again too).

Checked, patterned or striped denim jeans... Lovely grin

Or those enormous MC Hammer trousers.

I don't like elasticated anything. Elasticated bottoms on trousers remind me of shell suits.

Im tempted by coloured jeans after seeing them on Gok last night
