A little FYI on the history of zippers. It was originated in the late 1890s, beginning with the first patents issued for “clasp lockers,” according to “Zipper: An Exploration in Novelty.” book written by Robert Friedel. In the beginning, zippers were mainly used in tobacco pouches and in galoshes. Did you know that the term “zipper” comes from a marketing campaign by B.F. Goodrich for its rubber galoshes in the 1920s?! The word zip evoked speed and fasteners on Zipper Boots. It was a way to quickly get shoes open and close.  Isn’t that cool to know?! I think it is.

Statement zippers were seen earlier this year, 2016, on the streets of London, Paris, Florence, Milan, New York and Los Angels.

~ My Look~

Wearing white short shorts on a hot summer day with a sleeveless zipper top. What I like about the nude top is that it has zippers at the unlikely places for an untraditional vibe. Personally, I think the more unusual your zipper placement, the more interesting your outfit looks. So I finalized my look with a pair of beige sandals and my favorite Chanel handbag “Mademoiselle” Spring/Summer 2016 Collection.

I’ve provided a few of my favorite pieces with zippers below should you want to shop or get inspired for your next outfit. ?
