Fashion 1920s-2010s 1920s-men's The beginning of the 1920's saw men wearing many different types of "knickers." But these ballooning, short pants were meant for a younger crowd. Men wore sleek suits that were tightly fitted, especially at the waist. 1930s mens Suits during the early 1930s were close cut to use less fabric. The Great Depression started a conservative fashion climate. Extravagant colors were in bad taste; somber hues like gray, brown, beige or light blue were more acceptable. Men's suits were fitted with single or double-breasted lapels, button fastenings and wide shoulders. Wool, flannel, tweeds and linens, depending on the season, were the most popular fabric choices. Knitted waistcoats were also popular. Men wore shirts of plain or striped cotton with attached collars. Trousers had straight wide hems turned up with center creases and cloth color that matched jackets and waistcoats. 1940s mens One of the most significant decades in human history also signaled a dramatic shift in clothing. Men's fashion in the 1940s enjoyed what some consider its last great hurrah in elegance and style. It was an era that began with practical styles due to the war, and ended with more extravagant fashions that celebrated the end of strict rationing 1950s men 1950 was considered to be the inception of fashion era for men. World War II bought a long lasting transformation to America, which was reflected in the fashion of this decade. Various fashion trends were followed during this period. Decent clothing, such as business like and conventional was at its peak. The major fabric which was in fashion was wool, cotton and silk. Bold colors and patterns were no more inns. 1950s mens fashion was effortless with very little disparity in technique or shades. The man wearing a suit was considered to be the most descent one. Comfort was not considered to be a major factor while dressing. The colors which were most common in 1950 were gray, dark blue and brown. While shirt also increase the grace of suit. Cardigan sweaters were in style between athletes, and older men. Fitted vests, plaid flannels, and collared jackets also gives a very trendy look to 1950s mens fashion. 1960s mens 1970s mens 1980s mens 1990s 2000s men Men's suits in the late 1920's started to grow roomier. The coat was simplified, as was the tie. More shaped ties, patterned ties and bowties were seen with suits. Pants were a little roomier. Shirt collars remained rather high, but a little more relaxed than their Victorian counterparts. 1920s-women's Flapper dresses were all the rage for women in 1920's fashion. A flapper dress was a sleek, sack-like form that could be very short or very long. It was usually highly decorated and made for dancing. The neckline tended to be square or straight; spaghetti straps were very popular. Hems rose dramatically and necklines plunged for women during the 1920's. However, the biggest change was the abandonment of corsets. Undergarments, such as bras and slips, were first used in the 1920's. A flat chest was preferred to a large one, following with the boyish trend. Women wore their hair short and cropped in the famous "page boy" style. Hats were also close and cropped, fitting slick to the head. Coats tended to be indulgent, especially for those following the flapper style. This was not only a trend due to fashion; it was a trend due to need. During prohibition, women could hide many illegal bottles of alcohol in a large coat. 1930s women The Great Depression, WWII...the 1930s were a difficult and somber time in the world, and the fashion of the time are reflective of that climate. Fabric was a commodity resulting in shorter lengths, minimal bulk, form fitting silhouettes and huge innovations in synthetic textiles. These restrictions also encouraged a lot of creativity on the part of women who had to make due with what they had and still look fabulous. The name may sound dowdy, but the house dress is far less casual than anything we would wear around the house today. With lots of feminine details like bows, lace, ruffles, and decorative buttons, the 1930s house dress can be worn to work or on a date today and look rather dressy. House dresses usually come in really fun fabrics and prints as well. 1940s women One of the most popular eras for reproduction and vintage wear, women's fashion in the 1940s combined style and practicality to achieve a lasting elegance. This came as a surprise to those who lived through the era and remembered it for its shortages and difficulties, as well as some drabness. Wartime fashion presented a challenge, and everyone rose to that challenge as they did the much larger global one - with stellar results. 1950s women Although its design is based off of a menswear staple, the shirtwaist dress' emphasis on the waist, small rounded shoulders, and the bust is anything but masculine. Both casual and dressy versions of the shirtwaist dress were staples in a woman's closet from the time Dior introduced the "New Look" silhouette in 1947.
1950s shirtwaist dresses were worn with petticoats underneath to increase the skirt's volume, and girdles to make the waist even smaller, creating a very dramatic look. They could also be worn mor casually without any petticoat, such shirtwaists were referred to as house dresses. The 1960s was a period of economic prosperity. For the first time, young people began to dictate fashion trends, as they had disposable income to spend on clothes, and they wanted to find their own style rather than copying their parents. The 1960s saw the advent of unisex clothing and man-made fabrics. 1960s women Women's fashion in the 1960s was full of change. Unlike the previous decades, the 60s were a time of emerging and diverse trends. From sophisticated and casual to bright colors and bold prints, the 60s embraced it all with stylish flair. Many of the trends followed what was happening socially at the time, which is evidenced in the extreme hemlines, psychedelic prints and low heels. The early 1970s saw a continuation of popular 60s fashions that had become mainstream. Bell bottom pants were all the rage and colorful patches decorated all types of clothing. Frayed jeans and tie dyed shirts remained fashionable. As the 70s progressed, many unisex trends took hold. The fitted blazer with wide lapels was popular for both sexes and could be found in a variety of colors and materials. Men also incorporated wide ties into this trend. 1970s womens The 70's was a time when women chose who they wanted to be and if they felt like putting a short mini skirt one day and then the next day a maxi dress, midi skirt or some hot pants the day after- that is actually what every women did in that era.
For nightwear women usually wore full length maxi dresses, night trousers or glamourous halter neck catsuits. Some dresses had Motown style, others less. The 1980s brought an explosion of colorful styles in men's clothing. The look of several popular TV stars helped to set fashion trends among young and middle-aged men.

Miami Vice was one such series, whose leading men donned casual t-shirts underneath expensive suit jackets—often in bright or pastel colors. The t-shirt-with-designer-jacket look was often accompanied by jackets with broad, padded shoulders, and a few days' growth of facial hair, dubbed "designer stubble", a look popularized by the series' leading man Don Johnson. 1980s womens Eighties fashion for women was colorful, bold, and in some cases, outrageous. Anyone who grew up in or was around in the 1980s surely remembers some of the fashion trends that emerged that decade. Some were positive, and some were gladly put into the back of closets afterward.
