Trend Report: Amalfi

The term 'fashion-forward' usually implies a look that is new, edgy, perhaps even 'out-there'. But sometimes, after always trying to come up with the next big thing, fashion takes a break and lets the past do the work from them. That's exactly what happened on the runways for fall, where we saw the resurgence of prim and proper looks inspired by 1950's. Hey - if it ain't broke, don't re-design it! So go ahead and dress like a lady with polished skirts and dresses, top-handle bags and the Amalfi, a refined and classic pump with a feminine bow. Now if only we could bring back the days of drive-ins, jukeboxes and ice cream counters...
