What was in fashion the year you were born

Bright Side wants to show you what people have been wearing the past hundred years.

1916 — 1926

During this period, perfume was invented, the little black dress appears, skirts become shorter, belts replace corsets, and tuxedos do the same to jackets.

Skirts become a bit shorter. Women are allowed to wear trousers. It becomes fashionable to make accents: breast, waistline, thighs.

1936 — 1946

Severe war years make us forget about fashion for a certain time: new styles copy the elements of a military uniform. Women all over the world wear as convenient and simple clothes as possible.

During the 50s, people try to compensate for the past bleak war years. A new type of shoe appears — ballet flats. Bright make-up and feminine silhouettes take over the world.

The clothes of the 60s were intended to show the delicacy of women: hats and airy hairstyles became popular all over the world. Skirts became a little shorter again.

1966 — 1976

The fashion of the 70s was the most liberal: ’Wear what you want,’ says the fashion designers. Jeans are at the peak of their fame, and women start wearing shirts.

1976 — 1986

The 80s was a time for cavaricci pants, gladiator sandals, the first sweatshirts, and stonewashed jeans.

1986 — 1996

Punk style has a strong influence on fashion: leggings, blond hair, jackets, and big coats become popular.

1996 — 2006

Unisex rules the fashion world. People all over the world become bolder and dress as free as they can.

2006 — 2016

Few people are trying to chase fashion, because they will have to buy lots of new clothes every year. The dress fits? Nice!
