Fashion Timeline 1890 1920 1900 1910 a change in both clothing and history 1930 1940 1950 1960 1970 1980 1990 2000 2010 The Jazz Age was often characterized by women dressed in “flapper” attire. This meant short hair, short dresses, more make up than ever before, and a cigarette in one hand. During this time sexual promiscuity increased, and is mirrored by the daringly short dresses revealing lots of skin. Women also thought that because they received more rights in politics by winning the 19th amendment, they should also have more freedoms in the areas of fashion, leading to bold choices. World War II required many rations to help send all of America’s resources to the troops. Americans were focusing on whether or not their next meal would consist of more than spam. Therefore, clothing stayed simple because it was not a necessity. In addition to the prior simplicity, clothing became utilitarian-like to match the needs of all of the women working in factories. Rosie the Riveter helped show American women how to get out of the home and help with the war effort. Floral and atomic prints also became a very popular way to make dull cuts of clothes more exciting. Women could not completely stop buying clothing and fabrics because it was considered unpatriotic to not buy clothes and support the industry. Women of the seventies wore everything from micro, mini, maxi, long flowy to tight bellbottoms whatever they felt like wearing that day. Styles were very transient. The disco age brought about the popularity of the bell bottom, and high boots, spandex, platform shoes, and other outrageous fashions. All disco clothing had leave movement for dancing Flower power, peace, love, drugs, and woodstock were main parts of the hippie movement, as were baggy clothing, tye die, and an almost unisex fashion. Women of the sixties often wore loose clothing, especially boxy clothing that didn't show off their figures. HUAAC and other organizations like the Loyalty Review Board instilled fear in Americans that being different may be confused with being a threat to the country. This period of complacency inspired“normal” attire for women. Mothers during the Baby Boom living in“Suburbia” after their soldier husbands returned from war left the factory and secretarial positions they once held when the men were gone. Instead, women chose to stay at home raising their families. This allowed women to drift back to a feminine look rather than industrial or economical clothing that was necessary of the past. Influenced by the Great Depression of 1929, clothing at this time was simple and economical. In the 1890's, Ellis Island had just opened. This signifies the continual immigration from Europe. Fashion, in turn, was still influenced by European fashions. As technology in factories was evolving, and the first automobiles were invented, fashion became more "technological" too. By the 1910's, Women migrated to a look that consisted of less fabric and also less structure. Europeans were still looked toward for fashion influences, but women also took from different parts of the world such as oriental countries or Russia. This demonstrates our impearilistic views-taking everything from around the world and making it ours. Hobble skirts and large hats became popular. Morals were considered again when choosing clothes, and women went back to a longer look. Big hair and big shoulder pads dominated the older woman's wordrobe. The 80's were the first time that millionaires were in the spotlight; maybe the bold aspirations translated into the large options in clothing. For the younger generations, techno and beatboxing were becomming popular. Excercise trends and the neon clothing were popular both in and out of the gym. in the 90's, the "grunge" look appeared. Influenced by the heavy metal and punk music like Nirvana and Pearl Jam, torn acid wash jeans, t-shirts, flannels, and greasy hair were part of every teenager's wardrobe. It is too early to tell, but judging by Lady Gaga's crazy fashions, this decade may be more costumed than ever before Many different fashions have happened in the last decade... hipster... boho... tracksuits and uggs... revealing midriff... this time was marked by an indecicive sense of fashion.
