The stripes returned with this year and promise pumping in the summer of next year. The best is that it is one of the most democratic and versatile prints of fashion and can be adapted to all shapes and styles.
Use to your advantage:
- If you are too skinny and want to spend more the feeling of volume, wide horizontal stripes are sure bets. - The design also works for anyone? Increase? some part of the body, ie, give the impression of larger breasts, wider hips or thighs thicker. - It also uses them to balance the silhouette. If you have very broad shoulders, bet on a piece striped horizontally on the bottom, and if you have wide hips, reverse bet worth making.
Fashion of the 1990s has been quoted as “The decade fashion has forgotten.” Trends that peppered the 1990s were an eclectic mix of influences from the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, and the combination of styles from the three decades can be seen throughout. The late 1980s fashion trends carried over into the new decade, as women continued to wear aerobic leggings and stir-ups in bright florescent colors, blue jeans with matching denim jackets in acid wash, baby doll dresses, over sized t-shirts, sweatshirts and sweaters, with slouch socks over high-tops sneakers and keds. The 1960s and 1970s styles were revived in the mid-90s with fashion taking on hippie style floral dresses, flowered floor length skirts, lace blouses, Gypsy tops and wedge heeled shoes. Another trend that began in the 80s is the Z Cavaricci pants, or parachute pants, which were worn by both men and women.
At the same time mainstream fashion looked back to previous decades for inspiration, another alternative trend developed. In the middle of the decade, with the influence of rock band Nirvana and their lead singer, the iconic Kurt Cobain and his wife Courtney Love, the new grunge era began. Cobain and Love were the antithesis of conservative and inspired fashion trends to adopt what is known as the 90’s grunge.
The new grunge was an amalgamation of punk, which began in the 1970s, and gothic (Goth). Some of the key elements of the 90s grunge are jeans that are ripped, patched with fabric, and/or drawn on with a permanent marker, long sleeved flannels, long sleeved cotton shirts with a rock band t-shirt over it, doc martens, skate shoes, chuck taylors, or any other type of boot. The main influences driving grunge fashion are comfort and creativity; your attire should reflect a desire to break away from conservatism and be free. In conjunction with grunge, another fashion trend that was seen in the 1990s was inspired by the influx of hip-hop artists as the sagging-jeans era began in the early 90s and carried through into the 2000s.
1970s fashion trends represent the rebellion against the old guard that began with the hippie movement of the ’60s.
While designer 1960s fashion focused on the future – like Andre Courrege’s 1964 “Moon Girl” collection that represented American space exploration – the 1970s was a nostalgic era that looked to the past for fashion inspiration.
Most trends of ’70s clothing drew inspiration either from the Edwardian, 1930s or 1940s eras. While the miniskirt was still popular at the onset of the era, the hemline fell to midi and maxi lengths by 1971. The pubescent mod look was out, replaced with glamour that resembled the feminine red carpet styles of ’30s and ’40s starlets.
The laidback lifestyles of the hippie movement inspired the birth of the “leisure suit,” boho style dressing and preference for all-natural materials in the ’70s. However, the all-natural aesthetic was rejected by the nightlife loving disco fiends who wore synthetic materials like polyester and Ultrasuede to shimmy and shake on the dancefloor.
The “glam rock” and “punk styles” of the era represented the rebellious style of the 1970s.
The fashion trend that dominated 2000-2009 is “Boho-chic”. Boho-chic is a combination of nontraditional, eclectic styles influenced by gypsies, hippies, and artistic clothing of the 1960s and 1970s. The style is one of balance between messy and feminine, while establishing a sense of uniqueness and individuality. The style itself is versatile, as the trend ranges from artsy to exquisite. Boho-chic is derived from the traditional gypsy or bohemian styles of India and Pakistan. Some of the original designs of gypsy clothing are tunics, peasent tops, sarongs, caftans, salwar suits, and kurtas. Additional elements are handmade fringe, patchwork, beading, and tiny mirrors. Many of these traditional elements are seen in the bohemian styles of today.
Some key elements of the modern boho-chic are loose and flowing garments with a mix of colors and prints, often with layers. Fabrics used are natural, and at times, organic cotton, silk, and linen, while the colors are muted and earthy. Other defining elements of boho-chic are: short and long flowing skirts, especially in white; furry gilets (a sleeveless jacket or vest); embroidered and flowing tunics; cropped jackets; large faux-coin belts; sheepskin boots (mainly UGGS); cowboy boots with intricate stitching; baggy cardigans; scarves with paisley prints; uneven hems, and tights or leggings. Some noted designers of boho-chic are Stella McCartney and Zarmina.
Boho-chic was first donned by actress Sienna Miller and model Kate Moss at the Glastonbury Festival in the U.K., in 2004. At the same time, the American version of the modern bohemian was popularized by the Olson Twins (Mary Kate and Ashley), and became fashionable in areas of New York City, specifically Greenwich Village and Soho. The trend caught on quickly, in the post-9/11 era, because of its emphasis on creating a personalized, eclectic look. Boho-chic influenced the resurgence of vintage shops, especially in New York City, as many celebrities have been seen scouring the racks for individualized jewels.
As far as fashion goes, no decade is quite as no-no-notorious as the 80s. After all, in what other decade could you get away with wearing skin-tight pants one day and baggy “MC Hammer” pants the next? During what other time period could you wear leg warmers, a sweater and a miniskirt all at the same time (and in electric neon colors)? Take a walk down memory lane. In all of these fads, color was the order of the day. The drab white and black of the 90's do not apply. Big color and color mixed in unusual ways (say, bright yellow with red) were considered totally tubular – to the max.
1960s fashion was an evolving scene, as a number of emblematic styles came out of this decade. Many of the influences on the 60s fashion related to the social atmosphere of the time. Women’s trends early in the decade maintained the refined femininity of the previous decade. Jacqueline Kennedy, one of fashion's iconic legends, popularized many of the elegant styles seen in the beginning of the decade. Some of those styles were pillbox hats, pastel suits with short boxy jackets and oversized buttons, and simple geometric dresses or shifts. Also, for formal attire, full-skirted gowns were worn with low necklines and close-fitting waists. Capri trousers were the main choice for women and girls casual wear. Another fashion trend seen in the beginning of the 1960s were stiletto heels, which were a perfect complement to the classic elegance worn in the first part of the decade. For men, suits were bright and colorful as opposed to the pale, toned shades of the previous decade. Men’s styles included frills and cravats, wide ties with crazy prints, stripes and patterns, trouser straps, leather boots and collarless jackets.
