20s: love the jewelery, long necklaces, gloves, headpieces, art deco!! …unfortunately i don’t think the flapper style suits my body type :P
30s and 40s: don’t really know much about these decades haha!
50s: LOVE the 50s pin up/ bombshell/ rockabilly styles. love the circle skirts, cinched waists. I agree that the 50s was quite conservative and I don’t really enjoy the 50s mentality of how women should be the perfect housewife :/ but I love the modern day adaptions of 50s style clothing.
60s: love how fashion rules were broken- eg with the invention of the miniskirt!! love twiggy, but again shift dresses look horrible on me :P
70s: i like the whole bohemian, free spirit look, but it’s not my personal style. not a fan of the flares for men either haha!!
80s: i like some styles of the 80s- like the lace, puffy shoulders, big hair, big skirts, acid wash, all in moderation of course :P but not a big fan of some of the other fashion like neon and legwarmers hehe
90s: love the grunge look, especially the floral dresses, ripped jeans
Every decade has something good to offer in my opinion. Although I’m not fond of the 90’s or the 70’sposted over 6 years ago
I like the way you gave your opinion about vintage clothing. I’m a huge fan of vintage things. I adore 1920’s and 1960’s, but I’m crazy about old jewellery from 19. century too. I love cameo pendants.posted over 6 years ago
I don’t know much about fashion before the 1950s so I can’t comment on them but there’s at least one thing I like from every decade since.
1950s- I love the figure emphasising looks of the 50s, the cinched in waists, the girlie colours, full skirts, high waisted styles, the swimsuits. What I love most about the 50s is how the trends have translated so well into fashion in modern day society and how the silhouettes of 50s style clothing promote a healthy body image.
1960s- The 60s isn’t a decade that I’m particularly keen on, but I think the brightly coloured mini dresses and go-go boots are pretty cool.
1970s- I absolutely love the whole 70s disco style. The decade of bellbottoms, bright prints, sequins and jumpsuits, what’s not to like? The whole crazyness of it is what appeals to me most. Unlike with clothing from most decades which have been modernized in recent fashion and had their unique edge taken away a bit, the 70s disco look is still totally unique and the kind of clothing that when you put it on you really feel like you’re in the 70s.
1980s- It seems like every trend from the 80s has been revived in the last few years, and while some of those trends have been bad (like neon tutus, shell suits, gym clothes as everyday wear), some of those trends are very good and became wardrobe staples for the 21st century (like leggings, skinny jeans and oversized t-shirts). I think my favourite thing about the 80s is that people took risks and nothing was unacceptable.
1990s- Having actually lived through the whole of the 90s, I can safely say that the majority of 90s trends should stay dead and buried unless they are majorly revamped (like spice girl style platform sneakers, trousers with the skirt attached over the top, unflattering multi coloured prints) but you can’t beat 90s grunge, I’m so glad that has been revived.posted over 6 years ago
