Bell Sleeves & Socioeconomic Commentary


There is a long history of societies using fashion to make a statement about the wearer.  One example: In medieval times European men wore shoes with fantastically long toes to tell the world they didn’t have to work.  So what you say does this have to do with fashion today?  I propose that the bell sleeve is the modern day equivalent.  If you can wear these you can’t possibly do dishes (therefore you must have a maid), perform young child care (you must have a nanny) or work at a job (I sit at a desk most of the day and these are impractical).  I keep thinking they are finally out of style, but as I can’t really afford high end ready to wear it has moved down the fashion ladder to the likes of JC Penney and Walmart where I do regularly shop.  Hopefully it is just about gone!
