Each generation seems to have its signature look. What style or styles did you love? Or those you really didn't like.
I loved being a teen in the 80s. I like being an adult and wearing variations on the 60s-80s
I wasn't around for it, but I adore the 70s. My mom kept a few of her shirts from high school and used to let me wear them on occasion. And Farrah Fawcett hair... Gorgeous!
Hated the 90s. Quite unfortunately, it appears to be making a comeback!
The one before it reminded me my husband got a leisure suit when he graduated from college and he had a cream colored shirt with big brown and orange polkadots he thought he looks so cool.
Bell bottoms, platform shoes, polyester shirts. OMG!
I was an overalls kid. Now it's the high black socks with shorts.
That second part isn't me, I hate it. I'm a boat shoe guy with a good ol windbreaker...except in summer. It's regular ole flip flops or barefoot and shorts.
I've always liked bell bottom jeans and long, flowing shirts. Can't recall the generation, I want to say 70's? I might be wrong there.
I graduated in 1968 that was around that time
Bright bright colors of the '80's! Haha It seems to be making a come back as of late but I am forever a bright color person. Other than that, I'm not too keen on the popular fashions today for my age (20 somethings). I keep it modest but bright! :)
Oh, and floral print!
Also, I really like the house dresses from the '50's. I'm not sure why. I chalk it up to 20 years of watching Happy Days reruns. lol. Perhaps 1992 was not the year for me be born...
Okay, this is a terrible question because now I'm thinking of all the cute clothes I want! Haha. Regardless, nothing beats a nice, flowing sundress and brightly colored flip flops. That will forever be my ideal outfit.
Fell eternally in love with the "Granny dress" look in Jr High. Still prefer long dress/skirt to mini.
But I've never been slave to fashion. If I happen to like whatever's in fashion, great, but I wear what I like & find comfortable & always have. I dress for myself, not other ppl's approval.
That's how I am also.
I can't understand this tight/high water pants, no socks and glasses look dudes are rocking right now. And the colorful socks are obnoxious and annoying. Other than that, I have absolutely no feelings on the subject.
Hate anything 70s
Big hair. Bell bottoms, no bras. Loved all of those. Of course now my boobies are down to my knees and I can't wear bezel bottoms because that would make my behind look even wider. My hair still gets big when the humidity I'd high.
Darn auto correct. Bell not bezel and is not I'd.
Feeding a 6 week old and typing
Yes my cat likes to set practically on my chin sure hard to type when I have her there. The first time I met my mother-in-law had been out with my husband no bra just laid-back . I was rather upset with him when he pulled that on me.
I don't really like the trend of gauges and people in my school were starting to wear hair picks in their hair again...
I wore neon Lycra clothes in the late 80s when I was 11-12, I went through a The Cure look for about a week in early 90s which changed to a grunge look and then kind of preppy in late 90s and now I have a INC, Ann Taylor, jeans and cute tops look.
But definitely I gotta thank Britney Spears for making the low rise jeans popular and whoever starting adding Lycra to jeans. No more mom jeans!
After being obese for many years I finally got a waist then and all the waist in the jeans went away.
I used to be an emo kid. Lol.
Now, I kind of change things up a lot. My wardrobe is much more office-friendly. I'm still happiest in jeans and a band tee though.
D-bag frat boys will wear sperries with expensive black nike socks. And others will sag their pants to show off their underwear
My generations sags the pants to their knees or wear as little as possible to impress the boys it seems.
It all disgusts me :(
I absolutely love the pinup look of the 1950s
I also feel most looks should have age restriction. Cute at 25 not so much at 45.
I'm 44 - but I don't really look it - there isn't much I can't wear - so I disagree with your top age
My dad is also 44 but he looks like he's in his late twenties. And people should wear what makes them happy! He wears Vans and skate shorts frequently. So what?
I love the flapper look from the 1920's. I have a couple of cocktail dresses that are inspired by this look. From the 30's I love the tailored look. I don't like anything necessarily from the 40's. From the 50's
I have a couple of dresses that have fuller skirts (poodle inspired, but shorter) with fitted bodices. Then from the 60's and 70!s first a adore the Jackie Kennedy suits and dresses and the flower child look. I also like some if the disco stuff
Men in levis 501 jeans - reminds me of high school.
And letter jackets with the smell of new leather and polo cologne. Ahhh those were the days!!
I was too young but i always loved the flower child look of the 60's when the girls wore flowers in their hair. I also liked mini skirts and white "go go boots". I had a pair.
I did the grunge look in elementary school...thanks mom and dad lol. In high school everyone wore the stupid Juicy and VS Pink with the tacky phrases written across their ass. No thanks.
I like the western boots with the shorts and minis on girls. Mine needs to come almost to my knees to be ok. Much more age appropriate.
I was grunge borderline goth.
Much to my dismay our daughter wore a dog collar at her high school graduation n
Lol. I wore black lipstick and a spike collar to a school dance with the girl I was dating at the time.
cowboy hats w/the long pheasant feathers
Those really short blue gym shorts
Can't stand any of these
Woooohhh I thought maybe that was your taste for a second.
I tied to get a clarified stance on here before anyone got a horrific visual of gym class in the 8th grade. Sorry!
I was queen of the scrunchies in my day. Ahh, memories :)
For women, the '70s. Everything from loose fitting sun dresses to miniskirts and bell-bottom pants. The long, straight parted hair was a lot better than the ultra-short cut though. For men, logger-style, any era. Jeans and flannel. Timeless.
I still wear the loose flower Floaty sundresses in the summer time.
Don't forget the best of all, hip huggers!
I do like the combination of hip huggers and tube tops. For women. I'm sticking with my jeans and flannel or shorts and a Hawaiian shirt, as the climate demands.
One of my friends moved here from Canada. This is logging country. She thought we had a real big lesbian population because so many women wore flannel shirts and jeans here.
I really like the bohemian style of the 70's. I love wide leg pants and flowy dresses, glad they are around still!!
I never liked young girls wearing suggestive phrases on their chests or behinds ...that never flew in my house.
I think that looks so trashy when people have slogans written across their butt. I have a pair of pants that had that and were comfortable but I wore them in the house.
I have my "house pants" too
Did you have a baby on board T-shirt?
In my mothers day everyone dressed elegantly. Even if they were going to the drug store my mother wore a beautiful dress and sometimes gloves. She was poor too. This is from the 40's
In Seattle they had street photographers and I had several pictures of my mom when she would be a downtown with my grandmother or aunts. They had the hats and gloves and heels.
Very tailored dressed. Very classy. Jackie Kennedy pencil skirts or fitted waisted flair skirt. Just classy.
Txteacher - i have an expression. Would jackie o wear this?
Love that! Weeds out the skimpy trashy revealing we see everyday.
When my oldest daughter was young the girls would cut their shorts very short and slit themup the sides so their cheeks hung out. This was frowned upon in our home.
They still walk around with their asses out
Not you tops silly. Djtill. Said he was not gonna follow me anymore
I don't remember saying that. But I'll take your word. I'm sorry. And I haven't stopped following you. Just checked. Honest. Why did I say I'd stop following you?
Loved the flairs/bell bottoms growing up. Hate the pants dropping down so everyone can see their crack of dawn. Filthy and scumbaggy.
Not to mention boxer shorts fluffing out
You say things i agree with but im still recovering from u being mean to me a few weeks ago.
Who me what did I do? I'm so sorry with with me it could've been something misspelled.
what did i say? i honestly don't remember. I apologize anyway.
Bellbottoms that were hip huggers. We work crop top showing off bare midriffs
We looked like zombies with our make up was very light the lips were like everything except for heavy eye makeup. We thought we looked cool.
To school girls had to wear dresses. We would roll up or skirts at the waistband if caught had to kneel on the floor and make sure they hem of the skirt touched the floor. We also had granny dresses that were long. However we're not allowed to
wera them to school because they were too long. It was also the time of fishnet stockings and go-go boots neither of which I could wear.
White Levi's, bleeding madras shirts and penny loafers. Old enough?
