Do You Think Fashion Has Changed in 20 years?
Fashion was all about dungarees, hi-tops and leggings in 1980s and 90s. With the beginning of the digital age, and the way the fashion is promoted different types of fashions have arrived and some of the old trends of 80s and 90s have been dismissed. But there are some styles that have been there with us and it seems that they are going to be there for long time. So, what is still sticking in market today and what has been dismissed? Has the world of fashion changed a lot in last 20 years?
It was all about big jeans, big hair and about everything that is big and tight jeans in the beginning of 1980s. Many things of 1980s were about both women and men trying to be innovative, and the fashion specifically reflected this with huge, dark prints on clothing and the colors were also very bright. Some popular trends of 1980 were shoulder pads and small skirts for women, and for men it was parachute. But, some of the trends that were well-known in the past have made their way slowly back to the market, like leggings, they were very popular once upon a time, and today they are in style again and they can been seen throughout the world sold by independent shops, retailers and wholesalers. The same thing applies to miniskirts, it has stuck around from long time and you can still see them often in clubs at night. We can still see legwarmers on chilly nights, even today some people like to wear parachute pants.
Boldness of patterns from 1980s was still seen in 1990s, but most of the clothing was influenced by the film industry, music industry and Hollywood at that time. Popular music genre during 1990s was Grunge, with the creation of bands like Alice in Chains, Soundergarden, Nirvana the clothing style also changed, reversed to more delicate colors.
With customers shopping through retail and whole websites on internet these days, fashion world has become much broader and lot of styles from so many years have created their way back and are famous. You can still see shoulder pads in streets, cut off jeans are also in fashion in some places, so the fashion was hidden for a while may be, and it never disappeared completely.
