Ladies fashion of the late 1900s

Ladies fashion has always been affected by the time, more appropriately the decade in which it was present. The fashion of one decade could be just the opposite of the previous one. However, women have always taken particular attention as to keep themselves up-to-date with the current fashion trends of their times. Listed below are the major changes that took place in Ladies fashions in the late 1900s.

 

1980s: this decade saw the advent of Rock music and not surprisingly, the music had a big effect on the clothing and fashion of women. There were two categories of women that could be made out from the fashion. One would be the fun loving, cute and energetic girl and the other look that women sport was more of that of a rebellious hardcore rocker chick. The pants had the same trend from the last decade- high on the waist, but now they were of the lightest imaginable shades of all times. These were generally accompanied by fingerless gloves which soon became a popular style sported by almost all the girls. Tees of your favourite band on the top was the trend and was considered cool. The big change however came in the shoes with the converse becoming popular. Different styles of converse shoes in various colours were the ‘in thing’. Socks and sandals also became a popular piece of fashion.

The hair on the other hand had just one code and that was being cialisvsviagrasale big. Thick and heavily sprayed to make it poofy was the fashion. But this was done to piss off your parents though! Makeup too was equally hardcore. Craziest colours in eye shadows with eyeliners being extended to the brow. This was the fashion of the 80s. Just one word to describe it- Rebellion.

1990s: this was the decade of punk rock. Everything reeked of it. Every style was dedicated to it. Converse shoes went all the way up to the knees and it was considered awesome! Polos started becoming popular and this decade saw the advent of white jeans. Bright neon colours were considered the coolest. Teenage girls were crazy about miniskirts made out of leather. These skirts were called tube skirts. The 90s is infamous for making the low-rise jeans popular. It was accepted as wild fire in the ladies’ fashion. One can never forget the craze around the leather jackets. Apart from converse shoes, Doc Martin’s boots became popular among women.

The hair was literally abused with colour. So many times, it was dyed and with so many, different shades that one probably forgot what the natural colour was. But the curly hair was done away with and the flattening iron or the straightener came out of the drawers. It was used by all and on a regular basis. The hair was cool only if it was big. The makeup had now become more natural. Earthy colours were more often used. The fashion in the 90s saw the women screaming only one motto all the time- Dare to be different.
