History, Psychology, and Fashion.
ESP Project 2012
It is only shallow people who do not judge by appearances.
—Oscar Wilde—
Historians mention “Dress,” “clothing,” “costume,” “style,” and “decoration” as synonyms.
The bizarre is defined as: “odd, strange, or unexpected”
Zeitgeist: "the spirit of the times" or "the spirit of the age"
Cognitive psychology: is a subdiscipline of psychology exploring internal mental processes. It is the study of how people perceive, remember, think, speak, and solve problems
The APA Dictionary of Psychology (VandenBos, 2007) defines fashion as:

. . . the styles of artistic and cultural expression, garments, manners, and
customs prevalent in a particular time and place. Fashion may be transient
or irrational but often reflects the zeitgeist or mood of society (p. 368).
