The Evolution of Fashion Styles

Who doesn't have a favourite fashion style? Surely everyone can look back to a time in history and just admire the style of clothes worn at that time. I know I do.

My personal favourite fashion styles are a throwback to the thirties when men's suits were evolved to create the perception of a large torso. The shoulders were squared using wadding or believe it or not, shoulder pads and the sleeves were tapered to the wrist. Smart peaked lapels framed the v-shaped chest and added additional breadth to the wide shoulders. This was a period that also saw the rise in popularity of the double breasted suit the suit that developed into the modern business suit.

This was a time when men's suits were masculine and elegant with jackets with long, broad lapels, two, four or six buttons, square shoulders and vent less tails. A generous cut, long pair of trousers completed the look.

Enough of my favourites.

Every decade has brought along new more adventurous fashion styles, usually on the heels of shift in the social climate of the day.

Probably my least favourite fashion style was during the 80's when the clothing styles mirrored the culture of the day in what for me was a very self centred decade. The attitude was one of bold aggression and clothes that didn't make a bold statement just didn't make the grade. It is absolutely no surprise that not only were the fashions bold and aggressive, the middle of the 80' also saw the launch of Dior's Poison, in itself a very bold and aggressive perfume favoured by the so called powerful power suited businesswomen at the time. For me a very forgettable decade.

You can't really talk about fashion style without mentioning the sixties. The sixties was probably the most revolutionary decade in living memory. The war in Vietnam brought about a sea change in public thinking with a whole generation turning its back on aggressive imperialism. The upshot was a wave of peace demonstrations where the notion of love and peace were embraced by a very enthusiastic and willing audience. The hippy styles of the sixties were a blatant snub to the conformity of the previous decade with flowers, colour and a return to basics.

What Will Be the Fashion Style Shoes in 2010 Spring and Summer?

The fashion depends on the mood of the people,' the director of the famous Italy brand Valentino answered in a interview.

Globally, the design style and fashion trends of clothes and shoes are closely related to the fashion capital French and Italy which are the representative of world fashion and culture. But the fashion culture derived from the people's unconscious psychic reflection about the world. After 911, the cool colors become the fashionable in the world. Moreover, the style became dignified. And the black color of clothes and shoes become popular in America just from then on. In the 1980s when China was just carrying out the policy of reforms and open-up, the flared trousers were very popular in China. All of these could reflect that the fashion and culture is the mirror of people's mental attitude. Besides, the economic situation of the district and the local consumption habits will also affect the fashion trends of apparel and footwear.

After the Iraq, the international political situation became stable. And the world economy developed more smoothly. So the people may be in good mood again, and will pay more attention to the quality of life and to enjoy life. Therefore, the avant-garde, bold and enthusiastic styles became very popular since 2005. The warm color has been popular these years, such pink, light green etc. As for the material, mainly are delicate silk, cotton textiles. The fashion colors of women's shoes and clothes form a perfect match. Beige and light yellow will become the popular color for 2010 spring and summer sandals. The pointed-toe boxlouboutin shoes will be popular. As for the styles, the stiletto heels and the flat shoes will be the fashion styles at the same time! Just to meet the consumer's different needs of both fashionable and comfortable. And the material of shoes is mainly calfskin with rubber soles. And the Crystal-heels will begin to carry on this summer.

In fact, popular and fashion style maybe not the best for you. In other words, if you walk in the street, seeing everyone wear the same style red sole shoes, do you think that will be beautiful? So in my opinion, the popular and fashion trend could just be used as a reference. Just remember that the fashion and hot style shoes and clothes might not be suitable for you. But the ones suitable for you will always be popular, just to my mind!
