Notice the lovely wide leg pant on Holli Rogers above.  It’s been in what I refer to as “fashion jail”.  In an effort to make sure we all continue to buy the skinny legs that have taken over the past decade, very few alternatives are offered by the big box retailers.  I get it, all part of the terrible  “feed the golden arrow” plan.   While this is hardly a new issue, things have come in and out of style for centuries, we’ve all noticed the growing pressure of following trends versus curating your own style.  Let’s take a note from Amsterdam and step away from the pressure to wear something specific and wear what you like.  If you are feeling hemmed in by the retailers, maybe it’s time for some thrift, consignment, vintage, resale shopping!  Hey Macklemore.
