Introduction: Performance, Trending Fashion Pieces

Historically, there have been two pieces of clothing that seem to be more and more popular with each passing year: the crop top and the pencil skirt. Each has its own place in fashion history and is a staple in any wardrobe. In recent years, the popularity of these pieces has grown even more so than they were before, with a new crop top being released just about every day. Additionally, pencil skirts are being worn regularly in nearly every industry from casual daywear to professional business attire. Though each piece may be worn for slightly different reasons, the fact that they are both such a fan favorite proves that their beauty is not lost on anyone.
The popularity of the pencil skirt can be traced all the way back to 18th century France, when Marie-Antoinette [1755-1793] wore ruffled skirts. She even had a title for them: “Marie Antoinette continued to make statement dresses at Versailles, and was besieged with requests for her own designs. She called them ‘La Pompadour’ after the woman-of-the-house of the day, who wore short skirts with a ruffle at the hem. These dresses were influenced by those of the French court.”

Performance with an AI Writing Assistant

It’s not a bad thing that the computer sees that the crop top and pencil skirt are popular pieces. It is, however, a reality that without knowing any better, we cannot know why they are trendy. In many cases, the AI is not very good at knowing why a certain thing became popular.
There are some times when the computer may come up with something that is too close to what we already have written. More often than not, it will come up with something different from our original idea. The reality is that the computer can’t be expected to create sentences that are perfect on their own and need to be edited for clarity and for style to match our voice more closely.
The market is drafting towards a world where AI assistants are everywhere. They are being given more and more of the job that used to be the domain of humans, and as a result, there will be more and more time for us to focus on what is most important in our lives.
