Fashion is made to become unfashionable.
~ Coco Chanel
Speaking of fashion through the ages, are you familiar with the "Hemline Theory"?
Basically, it says that hemlines rise and fall with the economy - long dresses & skirts when the economy is doing poorly and short dresses & skirts when the economy is doing well.
Pretty cool, huh? Do you think this is holding true now? Are we wearing longer styles during this economic slump?
You can read just a bit more about this theory here.
