What's Hot Now
Anita Sharpe on Culture

Being a tattooed, body-pierced slacker isn't cool anymore. Instead, according to a Sunday Styles story in today's New York Times, young adults and teen-agers increasingly are modeling their looks (and, hence, their psyches) on -- can it be? -- elegance and optimism.

'People today want some elegance in their lives,' said Jane Rinzler Buckingham, president of trend-consulting firm, Youth Intelligence.

Sam Shahid, creative director of the teen fashion bible, the Abercrombie & Fitch catalog, told the Times: 'These kids are interested in their futures and what they're going to do with their lives.'

They want a sense of purpose. From my viewpoint -- where optimism has never gone out of style -- this bodes well for the future.
