7. The 1980s - The Idea Of “Power Dressing” Came Through
Bold styles and MTV completely ruled the '80s, with silhouettes, colors, and way too much-permed hair becoming what was considered “fashionable” throughout the decade. The '80s also saw biker jackets, ripped tights, and oversized everything becoming the choice of attire for many people. At the same time, working women began normalizing the idea of “power dressing” in their workplaces, utterly influenced by movies like Working Girl, which had a huge influence on the fashion culture of the time.
8. The 1990s - Casual And Cool Makes A Comeback
The 1990s challenged the idea of mainstream fashion when trends such as hip-hop, grunge, and punk styles became popular amongst young people from all over the country. The casual-cool style made it to the top, with minimalism becoming a fashionable choice for several women. But although minimal and casual clothing was deemed to be cool, people did spice it up with velvet, animal-print, and combat trousers making it one of the coolest times in the past decades.
9. The 2000s - Confusing Times
The 2000s were confusing times, with a trend called “anything goes” becoming the most prevalent of the time. Women’s fashion saw denim jacket, cargo pants, tracksuits, and crop tops making it to the top of the list. While the decade did have some staples, it seemed like a sort of mish-mash of styles became the trend. To be fair, our society was going through changing and confusing times, which ended up being reflected in people’s fashion choices.
10. The 2010s - A Time For Self-Expression

Factors like self-expression and individuality become growingly important, as women and men keep on choosing different ways of expressing their femininity and masculinity. With the constant blooming and exploration of fashion, we cannot wait to see what the current decade is about to bring.
