'97 Over

January 01, 1998|Mimi Avins, Times Fashion Editor

Fashion, in any year, has its own vocabulary. Anything out of style is simply termed "over." (Backpacks are so over, but the '70s linger on.)

Anything great is "beyond."

Some of the looks that landed in '97 are already over (power suits, micro-miniskirts). And, of course, '98 promises to present a wealth of styles that will be beyond (athletically inspired sportswear, more sheer slipdresses). Maybe the low point of the new year has already been reached--the Spice Girls on the January cover of Vogue. Aren't they over?
