3, dresses with belts around the waistline area (they were popular in the 50's. I love them. I have 2 of them). back in style

4. Knee high go-go type boots (i have a pair and i love them). majorly back in style

5. Sweater blouses that fall down the shoulders (so sexy, in my opinion).
back in style

Does anyone remember those terry-cloth type romper outfits? It was a tube top attached to shorts (like a one-piece).

I have 2 of them. I love wearing them in the summer with my swimsuit underneath it. I'd love to get more one of these days.

Well, barely back in style. I hardly see anyone wear them nowadays. LOL!

Me, too -- it's such an exotic look! And I don't mind looking like my Polish grandmother at all.

I love braids! I still can't braid my own hair - i'm not coordinated enough. Haha!
I love bellbottom/flare leg jeans still, even though I can still find them (I'll settle for boot cut too), most stores are into selling skinny jeans.

I like wearing bare midriff shirts, and every now and then I'll hear someone talk about how out of style they are...how "90s" they are. But I'm in love with the look and apparently other women still wear them too. If I wear a button-down shirt, I prefer to tie it up in the front instead of wearing it full-length. I honestly think that this is a timeless casual look.

Dog poop bangs. Where you curl your hair and make a roll that looks like a dog poop, and pin it to your forehead.

A couple years ago I was at my local gym, on the treadmill, cooling down after a nice little jog. This kid whom I work with (he's in his early 20's and I in my mid-40's) climbs onto the treadmill next to me and smiles and says, "Hey dude...nice socks!"
The thing was I was wearing mid-calf length cotton tube sox, which, ever since I was a jock in high school, I had considered the norm for workout attire. Well, I really didn't know what the heck he was talking about and why he was so amused by my sox, till I looked around the gym and realized that every other guy in the whole place was wearing those low-cut, ankle-lengths socks--the ones you can barely see above the top of the shoe. Apparently, this had been the fashionable preference for a few years, but somehow I had failed to notice this. And hell, I'm in the gym about 5 times a week.
Well, since then I've acquiesced and usually wear the low-cuts--they are cooler in the summer. But every once in awhile I slip on the old tubes just so as to assert my old fart rights.

LOL - sounds like my DH...

You have noticed that mens athletic shorts are no longer short and tight....right?

When I had a flatter stomach and was a size 6, I too loved them and used to wear them all the time (until 2006). I can't wear one now (now a size 9-10; and not so flat of a stomach now, but I'm curvy and happy).
