This isn’t going in the direction you might think. It’s just a commentary on how fashion can change in a very short period of time. The best way to gauge fashion styles in the modern era is to look at movies and video made during a period and check out what they are wearing.

Example – Take the video from this 1976 song “More, More, More”.  OK, maybe featuring a clip from porn star turned one-hit-wonder isn’t fair…. But there it is!  And if you watch movies and TV from that period, you’ll find her get-up isn’t much different than the common choice of threads for the party set.

WOW!!! Look at those moves!!!! Does kind of have “Porn Star” written all over it!

Fast forward just a few years.

Here is a video from another one-hit-wonder – M. Yep! Pop Muzik”!

Things got tighter thanks to new space aged fabrics, but it’s more interesting than that. In some ways, the change in fashion mirrors the type of change that took place from the 1910’s to the 1920’s, where everything for women got less garish and hair got shorter. Here is womens fashion circa 1915:


Now here’s 1920 typical party-girl style:


Things also got shorter and tighter.

Must go work now. Have a nice day.
