I came across this video on Facebook. I would rather see a series of pictures. There are a few here but not for all the decades. More complaints after the video
I must admit I am a fashion throwback. The 30s and 40s women’s fashions (long before I was born) are, in my mind, the way women “should” dress or maybe I should say the “standard” or “ideal.” I knew that before I watched this video. The 50s, 60s, and 70s are okay but starting in the 80s I just completely lost track of what is “in”. From the 80s I remember shoulder pads but that’s the only distinctive thing I noticed. In the 90s and 2000s it seems to me that people just put on random stuff that doesn’t seem to be any particular style and often doesn’t fit right, although I do sort of like the 90s dress in the video except for it being too short for my taste.
Also, I wish the video showed two or three different examples from each decade, both casual and dress-up or office wear. It’s hard to get a real feel for the changes when they switch from dresses to torn up jeans. The torn up jeans look has been around for several decades so I don’t think it’s the best way to show “typical” 2015 style. The 70’s jumpsuit was definitely around but it’s not something I saw a lot in the 70’s. Anyone remember “granny dresses?”
The men’s style? I had to go back and watch the video again because it moves so fast and it’s hard to get a good look at both the men and the women at the same time. The men’s styles from the 30’s and 40’s look odd to me, unlike the women’s from those decades, which look simply normal. I don’t really care for any of the examples of men’s fashion shown in the video, although the 90s outfit looks the most normal to me.
