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.
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 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.
The 80s was a time for cavaricci pants, gladiator sandals, the first sweatshirts, and stonewashed jeans.
Punk style has a strong influence on fashion: leggings, blond hair, jackets, and big coats become popular.
Unisex rules the fashion world. People all over the world become bolder and dress as free as they can.
Few people are trying to chase fashion, because they will have to buy lots of new clothes every year. The dress fits? Nice!
