FASHION TIMELINE
1940
World War II had a big influence on women's fashion, seeing as cheaper materials were used and bought rather than expensive ones due to the crashing economy. Materials such as leather were less common in shoes and wooden heavy soles or wedge heels became popular. A "coupon" system was put in place to keep clothing items rationed. Items that were non-rationed included ribbons, clogs, suspenders and mending wool. To keep the creative style alive in fashion, women started painting their footwear with bright colours and decorating them with studs or little shells.
1950
In the 1950's fashion became glamorous, women wore skirts that included the complete ensemble of petticoats, fancy suits and swoop-line empire dresses. As for footwear, stilettos and Italian shoes became popular. The beehive hairdo had become quite the rage alone with seamless stockings.
1960
During the 1960's the "mini skirt" was introduced, skirts became shorter and stockings were abandoned while pantyhose got more attention. Short dresses were accompanied by flat boots. The 60's was mainly known for its psychedelic fabrics prints, the pill box hat, chunky shoes with gold/silver buckles and denim jeans.
1970
The 70's was made up of bell-bottoms, mini skirts, platform shoes and an overall hippie look. Flared jeans were very popular and were worn by both men and women. This was the age of the "disco look". Platform shoes, about 2-4 inches thick were also worn by both men and women.
1980
In the 80's, it was claimed that the fashion "depicted people who were trying to find themselves". This era of fashion was very creative, natural and displayed individuality. Layers of clothing were worn by women accompanied by short hair cuts. Some aspects of the 80's style has returned in the present day fashion, proving that it was quite fashionable.
1990
Some of the 90's fashion was inspired by the British culture and included clothing items such as ponchos, capri pants, hoodies, cut-off denim shorts and bootcut jeans. It had a theme of grunge and flannel shirts and "mom jeans" were very popular. Accessories such as scrunchies were worn by women.
2000
In the early 2000's, halter neck tops, ripped jeans, low-waisted bottoms, slightly flared jeans and striped turtle neck sweaters were in style. Outfits consisted of women wearing dresses on jeans and layering tank tops as a shirt. Low-waisted bottoms included skirts, shorts and jeans. A trend that was only popular doing this time would have been using neck ties as a belt. They were often worn with jeans.
1930
In the 1930's however, fashion went back to portraying a more feminine and ladylike appearance. Clothes in style were crisp and clean. Shoes once again gained a lot of attention as they became more sophisticated. Open-toed sandals, short-fitted suits and jackets became very popular. This was when the material nylon was introduced. The "little black dress" was made in the 1930's, which is basically an evening party or cocktail dress, cut short and simply.

In the 1900's it was rare that women showed off their legs. It wasn't deemed acceptable for women to wear revealing clothes. As a result of this, footwear and stockings were not as popular. Clothes and shows that were worn during that time included darker colours, highlighted silk bows and small buckles. Women wore a moderately high heel and pointed toes, with long, narrow skirts, which came into style after the Civil War. Clothes were heavily starched and the most popular type of shirts were "waistshirts", which were adapted from men's shirts.

2010-2018
Fashion has evolved over the years and the style that is popular in the present day is not one that can be identified specifically. The trends in this era have been inspired by all the previous ones, an example would be the "mom jeans" from the 90's coming back into style. However there are creations such as Uggs, skinny jeans and hoodies that have come into style in the present time. Also globalization plays a big part in today's fashion seeing as items such moccasins, which are Native Peoples' footwear, have come into style over the past few years. Overall, today's fashion has no specfiic style to it. It is just a mix of different and past styles and people wearing what they find suits them the best.
Patterns
Although there aren't an specific patterns throughout the century, it is seen that fashion is affected by politics, by globalization, individuality and creativity. Politics, such as war, can have an effect of fashion. For example World War II lead to the Great Depression, which was basically when the economy crashed. This lead to cheaper materials being used in clothing and fashion being made from whatever resources that were available. As for globalization, fashion is inspired by many different cultures over the world, for example moccasins come from the Natives. Also indivudality and creativity is what makes each era have its own type of fashion. Wearing what makes you feel and look good, and adding your own creativity to it. For example in the 40's women painted and decorated their shoes to give it a stylish look. It all depends on you.
In the 20's legs became a very important part of women and showing them off was the new fashion. This is when stockings became very popular and came in various materials and colours such as silk or skin-coloured. Diamond cut and ribbed patterns were very popular.
