Dust Bowl Chic

by Sally Applin

I like to speculate on what the next big fashion trends are going to be and I have to say this time I figure that we’re going to be revisiting the dust bowl. 1930’s depression era colors, styles, patterns. Minimal jewelry, longer hair (cheaper to maintain), natural fabrics. Worn looking shoes, maybe with different tones in the toe and back and perhaps laces and hooks will come back. 

The trend could come from the Great Depression–the obvious choice. However, with Global Warming, parts of the planet are going to be hotter, drier and dustier.

Trend: hot, dry, depression = retro clothing and styling of hot dry depressed times.
