Fashion is always changing due to many things like: seasons and trends.

In the 1980’s, many popular things to wear were leotards, tights and tracksuits. 1980’s fashion was all about color, size and experimentation. They wore blue mascara and yellow eye shadow, they had hair to the skies and shoulder pads not far behind it, and the lines between men’s and women’s fashion blurred. Many of the biggest fashion trends of the 80’s were unisex. This was the era of Madonna, Michael Jackson and Princess Diana. Many people would say that these people were the “trendsetters” of the decade.

The 1990’s was a complete 360 with grunge fashion consisted of flannel shirts, ripped jeans, combat boots, band t-shirts, over-sized knit sweaters, long and droopy skirts, ripped tights, Birkenstocks and eco-friendly clothing made from recycled textiles. Many of the known and love 90’s tv-shows include The Fresh Prince of Bel-AirFriends and Saved by the Bell. As Cher from Clueless, would say “As if.”

Today, fashion is going back to basics. With kids rocking band t-shirts with a flannel and ripped jeans. One trend that has been super popular is the choker. All things denim are coming back in style from jackets, skirts and even dresses. Another popular accent that has come back is the scrunchies, which hold even the most difficult of hair.

With today’s fashion changing so rapidly, we don’t know what the fashion of tomorrow is going to be.
