Daily Prompt: New Sensation

Ah, sweet youth. No matter whether you grew up sporting a fedora, penny loafers, poodle skirts, bell-bottoms, leg-warmers, skinny jeans, Madonna-inspired net shirts and rosaries, goth garb, a spikey mohawk, or even a wave that would put the Bieber to shame, you made a fashion statement, unique to you. Describe your favorite fashions from days of yore or current trends you think are stylin’.

Not entirely accurate, but you get the picture

My favorite fad was stretch pants and oversize t-shirts.  I wasn’t old enough in the 80’s to care a wit about fashion, so I didn’t really get into it until the mid 90’s.  High School!!  Woooooo!  I used to steal my Dad’s t-shirts and pair them up with my stretch pants and multiple pairs of boy socks so I had sock scrunch half-way to my knee.  I was stylin’!  I eventually decided that wearing 4 pairs of socks for fashion was rediculous and it made my feet sweat, so I cut off the tops of 3 additional pairs of socks.  My mother was so mad!  I had the worlds largest collection of oversized t-shirts, most of them with sarcastic phrases printed on the front.  This is how I spent most of my time in High School.  It was comfortable too, which is always a good thing for me.

I wonder now why I have such a problem with the “Tights as Pants” fad??  Any guesses?
