More Jazz! And songs about the Depression...
not much really changed with the men of the age. Zoot suits, fedora, Ivy League haircut were in.
Artists were from Duke Ellington to Charles Gershwin
traditional vs. rock
poodle skirts!
Louis Jordan: is you is or is you ain't my baby (release date of 1944)
Rudy Vallee - "Brother can you spare a dime?"
Bee-gees from 1960s-1980s popular
Some eras have distinctions, some are simply blends or transition periods.
For music especially, there is often backlash from synth/pop/dance with hard rock, punk etc.
Women's fashion changes a lot, whereas men's is often more conservative. Hairstyles, on the other hand, change a lot for both groups.

a more conservative 20s, shoulder length hair for women
men, slicked hair combed over, suits
Most people too poor to afford anything really nice
