Tell the World Your Story

Since you were born, what has happened in the world of fashion?

By: Lauren N. Converse tennis shoes were a big hit in the 1970’s, but fell out of style in the 1980’s. In the early 1990’s, designers like Marc Jacobs started wearing them (his signature pair was a pair of beat up black converse). The grunge scene then picked them up and Converse came back in style.

Converse shoes became extremely popular in 2008, when girls would wear them with skinny jeans, creating the Emo Goth, and Scene styles. Most of the Emo and Scene stereotype would wear the brightly colored Converse from the 1980’s, along with the hair, makeup and clothing from that time.

Skinny Jeans
By: Nicole A. Skinny jeans started getting popular in the 1950’s. In the 1960's, skinny jeans were worn by The Beatles and The Rolling Stones. Punk bands like The Clash, The Ramones, and The Sex Pistols wore them in the 1970’s. In the 1980’s, heavy metal bands like Metallica, Slayer, Anthrax, and Megadeth started wearing them. In the late 80’s, early 1990’s, bands like Poison, Gun’s n’ Roses, Motley Crue, Kiss, Bon Jovi, and Slaughter wore skinny jeans. And in the early 2000’s The Strokes wore them. Later on, Kate Moss had been credited to introducing skinny jeans to women,The popular jeans were worn both by men and women, and were later adopted by indie pop and indie rock bands, which had increased the popularity of men’s skinny jeans.

Skinny jeans are now wildly popular among all ages and genders. They come in a variety of colors, from regular denim to hot pink and lime green. People wear skinny jeans because they make you look skinnier, although skinny jeans do not look good on everyone. Skinny jeans are a big part of today’s fashion trend.
