I love how fashion is cyclical. It is just another reason that vintages works. Fashion is constantly evolving, but often reflective of other times. A perfect example is the current rebirth of bandage dressing.
This trend, popular in both the 80's and 90's has come back around thanks to designers Proenza Schouler and Christopher Kane.
It seems to be a little scary for those who are not a size two, but I say embrace it. If you feel confident in your form, it can really shows it off. For fall and winter pair a shorter bandage skirt or dress with opaque tights and some sort of heel (they make your legs look spotlight ready!). My philosophy is to keep most skin covered to look sleek and chic - not slutty and cheap.
