It wasn’t only the cold in Europe, figure they also marched all over Europe in just 3 years. I bet army pants from the '40s wore on your knees.
When I was looking at the site with the flapper designs I got to wondering why everyone was flat chested. I found out they would bind themselves.
Imagine anyone keeping that style going
My nephew would never wear white socks except for gym class. For me and my brother you were a complete dork if you ever wore anything else but white over the calf tube socks.
I think the socks with sandals might be a comfort thing. I’ve known people who knew better that started doing that. As you age you stop caring what others think. First it starts around the house and then it gradually moves into public.
I wear sweats around the house all the time, when I’m 60 or 70 I’ll probably wear them everywhere.
Women easily pull off some of the knit patterns from the '60’s/'70’s. I find that the ones I like and want to make for my sister, nieces or great nieces are those types of patterns.
Another example is, looking at some of the hippies from the 60’s who never made the transition to adult hood.
I resemble that remark (I’ve since gone bald and shaved my head.)
