Alice Joyce 1920-1929 Shorter skirts became
a popular fashion trend Men wore more loose-
fitting clothing Ladies' hats

Dresses were now designed as casual day wear, or glamorous evening wear
French designer Madeleine Vionnet made popular the halter neck 1930-1939 Dresses were now so
short they barely covered
the knee. Ladies began wearing
belts with their dresses to
emphasize the waist. 1940-1949 College women and debutantes stop wearing hats with their outfits
Since Paris had fallen to the Nazis, the US now experiences its Fall fashion season without French designers
Colorfast prints are improved to make clothing more durable through multiple washings 1940-1949 Many ladies are no
longer wearing hats
with their dresses With colorful prints being
more easily laundered,
ladies wear more patterns. Dresses remain at their
new, shorter length 1950-1959 Men started wearing flannel suits in neutral colors, such as gray
This is the time period in which the women's "poodle skirt" became popular
Designer Christian Dior has a major influence on fashion 1950-1959 Typical men's suit of this time period The newly popular

Ladies in this time period started wearing short, colorfully patterned dresses with tall "go-go" boots. Men sported the "hippie" look just as frequently as women. My Favorite The "hippie" look from the previous decade was continued into the early 1970s
Women's clothing became much more revealing
Three-piece suits became popular for men
Baseball jerseys or "baseball sleeves" were commonly worn shirts
Ladies wore a "flipped" hairstyle, made popular by the Charlie's Angels television series A 1970s family wearing styles popular of the time period Guys in long hair and girls in revealing outfits were two things commonly seen in the 1970s At the beginning of the decade, short skirts/dresses with long boots were still popular Michael Jackson and Madonna were fashion icons of the 1980s
Men began wearing leather jackets
Women wore tight, colorful spandex pants and skirts
Inspired by the television show Miami Vice, many men wore casual t-shirts under suit jackets
Leg warmers and headbands were worn not only as work-out clothing, but also as streetwear Michael Jackson popularized the leather jacket in his "Thriller" music video Popular ladies' hairstyle of the decade Ladies could frequently be seen wearing colorful spandex pants and leg warmers My favorite era in fashion is a mixture of the 1960s, '70s, and '80s. I love the tie-dye look of the '60s, all the colorful patterns of the '70s, and the skinny jeans from the '80s.
