What’s your favourite era?

by Ben Mulvey March 16, 2016

As experts in ladies wholesale clothing, we understand a thing or two when it comes to the latest fashions hitting the high street. For those in who work in fashion retail it is important to remember just how quickly fashion can change.

When it comes to fashion, we all know that today’s trends are tomorrows old news. You may have read online recently that 90’s fashion is on its way back in, but as we enter what we believe to be the 90’s revival, we ask, what was your favourite era for fashion?

1960s – Was the 60’s the most stylish decade of the last 50 years? Quite possible yes. Thanks to the cultural trend setters of the time (‘The Beatles’, ‘The Stones’ and fashion icons such as Twiggy), the era was all about change, and the fashion world moved along with this change. The first half of the 60’s was the age of the drain pipe trouser, suit jacket and pencil skirt, then came flower power, and all of a sudden everything became a little more colourful. It was the late 1960’s that introduced Britain to boutique clothing.

1970s – Big trousers, big hair and the Bee Gees. If drain pipe trousers defined the early 60’s, then flares claimed the 70’s. We don’t have to watch ‘Saturday Night Fever’ to see just how iconic 70’s fashion was. A number of the trends from this era would reappear again in the early 00’s.

1980s – For many, fashion in the 80’s is something that should be forgotten. Thin ties, big shoulder pads, and oh so many colours. The yuppies loved braces, and let us not forget those not so mobile, mobile phones (they were not quite the accessory that they are today).

1990s – Grunge, Britpop and Girl Power defined the 90’s. The early 90’s had the ‘baggy’ era with bands such as ‘The Stone Roses’ opting for hoodies and really baggy jeans, then came the grunge scene, and the growth of the biker jacket and plain white tee. Britpop bands such as ‘Pulp’ told people that it was okay to buy their clothes in charity shops, and sportswear became acceptable everyday wear.

2000s – Perhaps it’s too soon to comment on the fashion trends of the 00’s. Early 00’s were the years of manufactured pop, so it was all spikey hair and vest tops. Flares made a comeback and everyone went mad for designer makes on the high street.
