This sounds like such a great idea/project.
I can see this getting really unorganized/chaotic though…but we should def. start this!
(Shoes up sounds good…)
And maybe start from the earliest decades to present. (Start with 20’s or perhaps even before that).
this seems about as opposite of disorganized and chaotic as one can get, but ok, as a starter there is
1920’s : dropped waists, beads, fringe, galoshes, cloche hats, bobbed hair, feathers, headbands.
1930’s : ?
1940’s : more structured, menswear inspired clothes
1950’s : ultra feminine shaped, exaggerated tits, hourglass figures, floral patterns,
now 50’s on things kind of start to fragment because you also have your beat poet look, the new wave look etc
and from there we get into the craziness of the sixties where there is mod, hippy, suburban (think the graduate) and then the disco madness of the seventies, and the powerful business suit types in the 80’s as opposed to the street look with the acid washed jeans and neon colors.
the nineties brings us grunge and the naughts bring the ugly
which brings us to now
common looks i have left out,
geek chic, victorian inspired looks, edgy rocker stuff, minimalist, boho (i mean can someone please define boho? please?)
anyway, i am a pretty poor source for this kind of information and seeing as we are surrounded by fashiony types maybe we can get more informed input…posted almost 8 years ago
