Women's fashion from the 1980s to the present tendend to turn towards numerous changes that took place. These changes led
to a change in lifestyle. Also, they had a profound effect on the way women presented themselves. The eighties were a decade
of excess. Everything was bigger. This included big hair, big parachute pants, and shoulder pads. The ninties were a time
in our nation to grow and become more independent. Independence meant to go out on a limb, and change your style of fashion
even more. Women wanted to transform the way society represented them. This included the ideal of the extremely skinny,
tall, Caucasian woman. Top designers combined punk and hippie to form the grunge look. Clothes were homemade, or even second
hand, and very colorful. 21st cnetury styles were the most non conforming of them all. Designers conmbined contrasting colors
to create beautiful styles worn by celebrities of all cultures. This led to better representation of women. It included
all body types and skin colors.
