Sometimes the oddest of couples make the best pairing.
You can think of the television show, “The Odd Couple,” as the entertainment version of this hypothesis or you can look to sports, food or other mismatches that, when all is said and done, make beautiful music together.
Why would fashion be any different?
Of course, you can’t overlook those pairings that never work, the most famous ones being the like of socks and sandals or always popular blazer or women’s sport coat and those worldly traveled yoga pants that are so easy to wear, yet hardly appropriate in all situations.
But let’s for a minute talk about what does work: the pairings that once were popular and then dismissed but have returned better and bolder (and more popular) then ever.
Take for instance the once beloved 90s trend of wearing a white T shirt underneath a tank top, something that young men rocked in the 1990s (mostly the white T shirt under a basketball jersey), but women also made that look famous with the very thin, spaghetti strap tank look just as desired.
Today, that look has returned with every female celebrity and socialite opting to pull off the early to mid 1990s wardrobe with great ease and functionality, especially with summer having arrived. While some might argue that the look is still outdated or harkens back to a time when pegged pants and pleats also were all the rage, you can’t argue that the fashion trend has awoken in just about every photo featuring anyone that matters or those who are lauded for their love of fashion and who are equally good at wearing just about anything.
Simply put, if they’re wearing it, it must be back in style.
The truth of the matter is as much as the celebrity endorsement helps, you can take just a quick glance at the ensemble and realize that it pairs nicely with skinny jeans and heels or a pair of khaki shorts.
Another wildly popular odd couple in the fashion world are suspenders paired dubbed to pair up with skirts. This is an extremely wanted and desired clothing style for the summer month and surprisingly it doesn’t look out of place or odd whatsoever.
While some styles aren’t meant to come back from the dead, just like some clothes are meant to stay completely separate from one another, you can’t underestimate just how a particular fashion movement or articles of clothing can either return to the forefront or work wonders together.
