New fashion trend: Visible panty lines?!?




We love Mad Men style, but don't want to go back to the era of pointy boobs. But it seems that someone forgot to share that memo with the designers showing off their stuff recently on the New York runways.

The skivvies on display at Fashion Week are all '60s fug-taculare.

And what a display. The New York Times' Eric Wilson muses that VPL (Visible Panty Lines) were a veritable fashion trend for spring collections.

How could this be? Not so long ago, drunk co-eds were dropping trou to the beat of the Thong Song. Bridget Jones' hot date went cold at the sight of her granny-roos. Even maxipad makers got in on "the less is more" action.

What now? Will fashion-loving women embrace the high-waisted look of our mothers? Will Spanx become the new T-backs?

What is your take: Are VPL back?
