Hippie Chic

The New York Times tells us that the "new" look this season is the peasant skirt, that women are "throwing aside" the tight, curvy clothes of the last season in favor of this more "romantic, forgiving look."

Funny, I must either be a throwback to before I was a twinkle in my Daddy's eye or a very poor fashionista indeed, as I've been buying and wearing broomstick and peasant skirts since the mid 80s. Of course, the fact that I'm in Cambridge and not Manhattan might have bearing on this issue, too.

I have loved peasant skirts and ethnic type clothing since college - I graaduated in 75. I have noticed that the styles I have always liked the best are appearing more and more.
