The magazines are calling it "painterly" and art deco. The clothes in the magazines I've noticed look watercolored or artsy like bright 80s graphic prints. I haven't seen that much of it in the stores yet. It appears to be a high fashion trend.

Rebecca Minkoff<3

for handbags.

In LOVE with her stuff and can't wait to buy one.

The celebs have been into her a lil longer, but it seems as of recent she is breaking more into mainstream fashion for regular folks.

The leather is to die for.

There's an 80s revival in my generation. And no, not the mullet or the side ponytail!
Guys wear skinny jeans with a graphic tee and a thin striped zipper hoodie.
Girls wear leggings with a mini-skirt, hippie shirt, and a pair of flats.

Popular stores nowadays are Urban Outfitters, American Apparel, J. Crew, Free People, United Colors of Benetton, and Heritage.

I think older people look great when they dress up more. I always think a woman who wears a sweater with a pair of tight jeans and heels looks like a million bucks. Older men look great with collared shirts under a sweater with a pair of nice slacks. If only people where I live would dress that way. People here wear mom-jeans and "Poison Revival 1995" tee-shirts.

Good grief!

Default enough of Project Runway

I think older people look nice when they dress up too but as someone who is rapidly moving age group boxes (not in the 30-34 box anymore) I'm starting to feel there is too much pressure to keep up with fashion and in general too much emphasis on the latest it thing. Skinny jeans are a great example. I started wearing the trend a year and a half ago at age 35. Now I'm like 37, nearly 40, and I have to ask myself, am I really going to keep up with this much longer? I know I should dress up and it's become the big thing, trying to get the 30 and 40 somethings with the program so to speak. Can't we be allowed to gracefully move on and do what we want? I don't want to spend the rest of my life at the mall pining away for clothes I wish I'd had when I was younger.
