Nostalgic Clothing Items Which Are All But Forgotten Today

When it comes to fashion in particular, nothing stays the same for long. What might be scandalous today could become tomorrow’s everyday must-have item. But, we really miss some of the clothes and accessories women used to wear. The classic, elegant looks we grew up with are a distant memory to many people these days, especially young people.

Clip-on Earrings

They were once the staple of any jewelry operation, but now you hardly see them anymore because everyone has pierced ears.

Stockings

There’s a niche market for stockings these days, but most young ladies have never worn a garter belt.

Shoe Clips

The simple way to dress up plain pumps, these are getting harder to find, too.

Girdles
