100 Years of American Fashion in 90 Seconds

Talk about Changing Your Clothes! It’s interesting that all these looks are from the middle of each decade– I find the biggest fashion changes tend to happen near the ends.

I love this video of 100 Years of American fashion in under 2 minutes!

My favorites are the 20s, 30s, and 70s. Things got weird in the 80s, and then just cringe-worthy in the early aughts. Raise your hand if you had a closet full of polyester lingerie camis and coordinating shrugs. [Head down, hand up.]

  1. Great video – love the 20’s and 30’s elegance!

  2. What fun! You know, I was an adult in the 70’s and I didn’t dress like that… Nary a pantsuit for me!

    • I was in high school then, and I remember our school principal wearing the infamous double-knit denim-look leisure suit. {{{shudder}}} Now that I’m thinking about it, I’m not sure I’ve ever worn a pantsuit— I’m a lot more of a mix-rather-than-match girl.
