Have your say

Isn’t it strange how fashions come and go? Sometimes it’s the things you’d never expect to make a reappearance that are suddenly everywhere.

I was shopping and spotted necklaces and bracelets made of thin plastic thread woven into a stretchy loop which you wear around your wrist or neck. I remember owning loads of them in a huge range of colours when I was 10. They were the thing to be seen wearing in the playground. Now they’re on sale in women’s clothes shops. I know there’s a bit of a ’90s revival going on, but what next? Are we going to all start trading Pogs in the office?

Saying that, I was sceptical about skinny jeans for ages, now they’re pretty much the only thing I wear. So ask me again in a year and I’ll probably be covered in the things.
