Do trends ever really go out of style? When I read fashion magazines things seem to move at break neck speed. Sometimes it feels like a trend is declared dead almost immediately after it's introduced. But in the real world, or at least in the retail world, things move much more slowly. This sweater is 4 years old; I even styled it with a polka dot shirt under it 4 years ago. But similar sweaters are still currently in stores, and I would absolutely still wear it. It feels fresh and new this season thanks to a big necklace a la the inspiration photo, and a new pair of red flats!
