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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

I also feel most looks should have age restriction. Cute at 25 not so much at 45.

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

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 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.

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 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.

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
