Fashion through the_ages

  1. 1. By: McKenzie Johnston<br />
  2. 2. What influenced your style as a teenager?<br />
  3. 3. 1920s: Flapper Decade<br />In the 1920’s fashion dramatically changed and was the start of people expressing themselves through clothing. World War 2 had just ended and people were sick of uniforms and structured suits for work and war. This caused everyone one to come out of their shell and try new options. During the 1920s the music also really influenced the fashion choices. Jazz music had become extremely popular, along with dance clubs. Clothes during this era allowed people to dance and do whatever they pleased. This meant, hems were shorter and flowy, like the flapper dress and loose fitting suits. Comfortable clothing was also very popular during this time. Guys took on the comfortable clothing also, like cuffed trousers, which are like shorts and flannel. The richer men still wore knickers and suits to fancier events but were less fancy then ever before. <br />
  4. 4. 1940s<br />The 1940’s was a very professional time period. More and more people were getting out of ordinary jobs of working for the government or war efforts and starting their own business. With this came along a new since of style for people. The men started wearing the fedora and the Eisenhower jacket which is a cropped leather jacket. During this time men started to wear the Zoot Suit which is a pant and jacket set. The jacket would be padded with extra long tails, while the pants were high waisted and tighter fitting. The suit was usually bright colored with funky patterns. The The women were still making their own clothes during this time so easily made skirts and dresses were very popular. Which is why the circle skirt was very popular. It was a full skirt that fell to the knees and eventually led to the poodle skirt. <br />
  5. 5. Mod Era: 1960s<br />The 1960s were a time for hippies and strong social movements to have more freedom. Men stepped out of their comfort zone of suits and stepped out in bell bottom pants with low waist hems paired with a high collared shirt. Buffalo Plaid was also very popular during this era. For the women it was time to bring out the short dresses and go-go boots. Paisley and Tie-Dye also made their appearance during this era. <br />
  6. 6. 1980s<br />This period of time was a fun time for everyone. Music was always fun and lively. . The fashion during this time was really based off of the music and the creation of MTV. The vibes were great and bright so, so were the clothes. The clothes resembled bright, and physchedelic patterns. Big hair, bell bottoms for both men and women. Everything was over the top. No dull moments of just sweats were popular during this time period for anyone. A big designer during this time was Chanel for being one of the first designers to embrace the craziness ad roll with it producing clothes that are still admired today. <br />
  7. 7. The 21st Century<br />21st Century style is very scattered and different. There are just so many more fashion designers these days that are all taking different routes with there lines that everyone nowadays has there own choice and doesn’t stick with one trend. The trends though are starting to cycle through. The 50s is coming back in with the longer skirts and dresses and also you will see a lot of teenage girls sporting 50’s style bathing suits. The main style coming back is the 80s like converse, leg warmers and even the bell bottoms, much to many people’s dismay. This is only because so many teenagers are more inspired by the past nowadays when speaking of style. In terms of guys, some are sporting past styles like skinny jeans and muscle tees’ but many are sticking to shorts and T-Shirts or sports wear, like jerseys’ or baseball caps. <br />
