Transcript of Fashion Evolving Overtime

Fashion Evolving "Fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening."
Coco Chanel The 1920s began to wear skirts and dresses that were comfortable rather than constricting. The flapper stereotype is one of short bobbed or shingled hair, straight loose knee-length dresses with a dropped waistline, silk or rayon stockings with garters, heavy makeup, and long beaded necklaces. Flappers are also associated with Jazz and 1920's dances like the Charleston.
The new, energetic dances of the Jazz Age, required women to be able to move freely, something the "ironsides" didn't allow. Replacing the pantaloons and corsets were underwear called "step-ins." The Roaring 20s source: http://www.1920-30.com/fashion/flapper.html 1930s known as the "Stylish Thirties" was the return of a more contemporary lady like look whose main stylistic feature for this period was the emphasis on the shoulders. Skirts were longer at the back than the front or high-low dresses. Gloves were "enormously important" in this period. Evening gowns were accompanied by elbow length gloves, and day costumes were worn with short or opera-length gloves of fabric or leather.
The 1940s continued this look while experimenting with more synthetic fibers, the introduction of nylon and rayon, and the use of the zipper. Due to the war, fashion remained stagnant and fashion did not really improve because everyone was busy. Although fedoras, large collars, knee length coats, wearing a patterned scarf tied from the back of your head into a knot at your forehead, and pencil skirts became big trends after the war. Bathing suits were also a huge trend as traveling became part of North Americans Lifestyle. 1930s -1940s Source: www.fashion-era.com The designs of Christian Dior was largely influential to the style of the period as his designs came after the war and emphasized a woman's figure. Fashion trends of the 50s included the ever famous Audrey Hepburn little black dress, shaped fitted jackets, polka dots, florals, and line skirts which emphasized a woman's waist. Hairstyles back then were the beehive and the classic tight curls.
Cocktail dresses were usually shorter then the more formal evening wear and not as low cut. They were made of silk, tulle, sheer, satin, lace and net and came in single colours as well as abstract print. Some had bows, beads and sequins.
Mid calf pants called Capri pants appeared around this time in bright colours.
The material used for the 1950s fashion for women are often using the cotton and wool, thus we can say that the quality was better than today’s fashion. Flannel also has been introduced as the 1950s fashion for women. Glamour Decade The 60s was a time for change in the fashion world. Tons of trends emerged including the mini skirt, bare legs instead of stockings, usage of lace, and hats for both men and women. In 1964, bell-bottomed trousers were a new alternative to the capris of the early 1960s. They were usually worn with chiffon blouses, polo-necked ribbed sweaters or tops that bared the midriff. The hippie movement late in the decade also exerted a strong influence on ladies' clothing styles, including bell-bottom jeans, tie-dye, and batik fabrics, as well as paisley prints.
The 1960s also gave birth to the drainpipe jeans or skinny jeans, worn by Audrey Hepburn. They were worn by numerous rock bands and musicians as well, including The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan.
Women started wearing big false lashes which were paired with graphic prints, colourful abstract geometric patterns, and bright colour blocking (colours that don't usually go together like bright orange and purple). Flat shoes, specifically loafers, were also trendy. 1960s Source: http://www.mollysemporium.com/1950s-fashion Source: http://www.fashionising.com/trends/b--1960s-fashion-7918.html Source: http://pongogirl2.hubpages.com/hub/1970s-Fashion# The decade began with a continuation of the hippie look from the 1960s. Jeans remained frayed, and the tie dye shirts and Mexican peasant blouses were still popular. Specifically peasant clothing, such as blouses with laces or off-the-shoulder necklines, which were inspired by clothing from the 17th century. In addition to the mini skirt, mid-calf-length dresses called "midis" and ankle-length dresses called "maxis" were popular as well, thus offering women three different skirt lengths.
Women wore high-waisted denims, and later on enormous collars, knit tops, and crop tops. Trendy colours were dusty rose, Prussian blue, bottle green, rust, and brown. Platform shoes with soles two to four inches thick became the style for both men and women.
In late 70s, all styles of clothing were affected by the disco style which again made flared jeans and "Barrymore" collars more popular. The Disco Era The 80s fashion trends all had one thing in common: they were wild. Spandex, shoulder pads, graphic tees, leg warmers, fishnet stockings, neon and animal prints were rampant. In the 1980s, jeans became very high fashion clothing as well. Famous fashion designers like Gucci started making jeans, with their own labels on them. Due to demand, more and more different types and styles of jeans were created, the flares were dropped and in came the super skinny jeans, acid washes and little Denim jackets.
80s fashion also consisted of leggings, high top sneakers, off-the-shoulder sweaters, huge earrings and bright colored tops and accessories. Although denim was the most popular, miniskirts were made in a number of other materials including knit and leather. These were often paired with leggings due to the mindset "the shorter the skirt, the better".
Lastly, we have the 80s fashion fad of oversized tops. Big sweaters, sweatshirts and t-shirts were totally hot and wearing them over a miniskirt or a pair of leggings made them even hotter. These tops were most often belted with big and gaudy, low slung belts with the top bloused over the belt. 1980s Source: http://www.thefashionpolice.net/80s-fashion-a-guide.html The early 1990s saw a continuation of 1980s fashion: women wore tight-fitting trousers with elastic leggings, denim button down shirts, neon colors, skinny jeans, oversized sweaters, T-shirts, sweatshirts, and black leather jackets. Women also wore cowboy boots, colored tights, bike shorts, tartan skirts, baby doll dresses, matching jeans and denim jackets (in dark shades due to the popularity of "Grudge" look), headscarves, leggings, trench coats lined with fake fur, and penny loafers. Many women wore black leggings with white slouch socks, athletic sneakers and oversized T-shirts as exercise wear.
The mid 90s saw a revival of 1960s fashion, including hippie-style floral dresses, turtleneck shirts, lace blouses, straw hats, long floral skirts, chunky wedge heeled shoes, and Mary-Jane shoes.
During the latter years, women wore flared trousers, pastel colors like pink or baby blue, fleeces, miniskirts, grey sweatpants or yoga pants, crop tops (tops above the belly), capri pants, and low-waisted jeans. The 90s Submitted By:
Michelle Tano . Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1990s_in_fashion In this photo, sweatpants and leggings from the 80s and 90s seem to comeback but are restyled with UGG boots. Lace from the 50s are currently trendy but instead of seeing them only in dresses, they are redesigned as crop tops, shorts, leggings, corsets and many more. Crop tops and tees
with colourful abstract
geometric patterns
from the 60s are designed together like never before. This tops are very trendy today
and are paired with
denim shorts which
update the look. Denim jackets from 80s are one of the latest trends. Unlike before, they are not paired with denim jeans instead they are paired with different textures like a lace dress or black pants. High low dresses and skirts from the 30s are trendy this summer. They are usually paired with denim jackets to tone them done due to its usual loud print. High low dresses are usually floral, chevron, stripes, bright colors, dots and spots. Fedoras from the 40s have been trendy for almost three years. They are usually paired with beach attire and occasionally a lace or floral dress. Sheer tops are one of the spring trends this year. Back from the 50s, sheer is not only used for dresses but are now everyday-go-to pieces. They could be mixed and matched with polka dots, peter pan collars, and jeans for a more casual vibe. Florals have been in and out of fashion since the 50s. They are now recreated as tops, skirts, shorts, and dresses. Due to its loud print, they are usually paired with plain colours or are layered with a cardigan or denim jacket depending on the type of clothing. Colour blocking is combining different colors that support and compliment each other. They first appeared in the 60s and are now very trendy during spring and summer. Present From the mid 2000s and onwards, fashion has not really improve when comes to creating new clothing. Instead, it is a time in which vintage has been our inspiration. From the 20s-90s, we took key pieces and recreated them to a newly improve and updated style.
In the upcoming slides, I would like show how some trends and fashion is a cycle. Maxi dresses from the 70s have been in for almost two years. They are quite difficult to pull off due to its length and bold patterns. Skinny jeans have been trendy since 2008. Although it was in during the 60s -90s, it has never been such as staple piece. Due to it's versatility, it could be worn throughout the year because you could pair it with flats, boots, heels, and many more. The different colours also make it easier to remain stylish no matter what since it comes in white, pink, blue, and other pastel colours during the warm weather and darker colours during the winter. High-waisted denim were in during the 70s and have been considered fashionable since 2011. They are redesigned as shorts, skirts, and pants. Unlike before, high-waisted jeans no longer have bell-bottoms (flared jeans). Animal print from the 60s and 80s are one of the newest trends this year. Animal print is made to resemble the pattern of the skin and fur of an animal such as a Leopard, Cheetah, Zebra, Tiger, etc. They are used for handbags, shoes, tops, sometimes pants, and dresses. Neon colors from the 90s are back. Despite the trend being daring, color blocking helps update the style into a more fashion-forward look. This trend is very popular during the warm season. My presentation is basically about the different trends from the 20s-90s and how they are recycled as the 'new and improve' trends of the present. Furthermore, the most important thing to remember when trying to be trendy is that people should not change their whole wardrobe in order to be trendy for a specific season because trends from the beginning of a season tend to be passé, even before the season is over. Fashion evolves quickly which is why it is also important to know that if you want to follow a trend, just buy things that would add and go with the wardrobe that you currently have. With that said, even if the trend becomes passé, you still have a wardrobe that fits your personality.
