Could it be wishful thinking on our part or has fashion come to its senses this spring? When even models at Chanel saunter down the runway with backpacks (albeit ones that retail for thousands of dollars), we have to surmise that something’s up. For one thing, the backpack has made a comeback and just in time to salvage our lower backs and posture. White cotton blouses in various guises, from camp-style to cropped and down to knee-length, have also made a welcome return to the fashion zeitgeist. Dresses and pants have loosened up so constant gym going is not a necessity. Finally, to go with the now popular mid-length hem, sporty sandals and low-heeled shoes will make walking a welcome pursuit and are even more proof that fashion is showing us its practical side.
