Every once in a while something really great comes along. It might originally be snubbed as a weak and passing trend but somehow it manages to stick. Two such examples:
1. Leggings
2. Check shirts
Many tried to fight these trends, but they are impossible to avoid. This couple is very cute and they are sporting a look that is rocked by probably half the population aged 16-27 each day. Even if it's over done it's great. What did we wear before these things came along?
