Fashion: Funny or Forever?

Fashion introduces a look to the main stream that appears surprising at best and at worse, ludicrous. Then a year later, after seeing enough of whatever that look you are seeing, becomes palatable. Then, a year after that, down right desirable. And finally, possibly, a wardrobe staple. Uggs are a strong example of this phenomenon. When California surfer girls started wearing them in the 80’s, it looked crazy to wear boots with swimwear or shorts. Forty years later, they are ubiquitous in both cold and warm weather. Note a couple of 2020’s trends: square toed shoes and socks with sandals. What do you think? Will they have staying power?
