Subject: 2010s clothing

Written By: 97er on 03/07/15 at 1:26 am

How would you define it? How do people dress in your town/city?

At my high school, people dress really cleanly and "conservative" since '13. Guys wear nice buttoned shirts and chinos, comb over hairstyles and nice jackets. Girls wear  floral dresses a lot more than freshman year (2011/2012) and lipstick. This is really different from the "swag fag" era where people would wear different colored jeans and sweaters, snap backs and huge Raybans. I guess hipster is still kinda "in".

What's it like in your city? I'm from Southern California BTW.

I've lived in three states in the early 2010s (Ohio, Utah, and Texas), but I've been to alot of states from 2010 to today. Here is 2010s fashion so far.

Early 2010s
Neon colors
Skinny jeans
Leggings
Massive belts
Tiny belts
Thin-soled shoes
Flat footwear
No arch-shoes
Wingtips
Baggy shirts (girls)
5"+ Stilleto heels
V-necks (really deep ones)
Colored skinny jeans (*barf*)
Too-thin sweaters (that don't keep you warm!)
Boat shoes
Harem pants
Midi and maxi skirts (short skirts were not fashionable in the early 2010s)
Waist-belts
Western shirts
Birkenstocks (*barf*)
Uggs
Extreme side partings
Ombre hair
Undercut hairstyle (Hitler Youth for more controversial kids)
Wings haircut (better known as Justin Bieber hair)
Guyliner (very early 2010s)
Vans
Supras
Combat boots/Doc Martens

Mid 2010s
Continuation of some early '10s trends (as of March '15)
Jogger pants
Block-heel shoes
Low-heel shoes
Ankle boots/booties
Lug-soled shoes
Black footwear
Layering
Hoisery
Shorter dresses (knee-length or just above)
Crop tops
Tighter tops
Darker colors
Chinos
Higher-rise pants
Man-made fabrics (they're more popular than they were in the early '10s)

And that's pretty much it. We aren't even halfway through the mid 2010s yet, so we've still got 2015 and 2016 left to go before we can completely define the middle years.

In other words, there was an early 90s revival in the early to mid 2010s. A mid 90s revival is slowly starting to break out.

By the end of the decade you can count on baggier pants to be in (and teenage boys wearing them). In the '90s, grown men didn't wear baggy pants, unless you were African-American. I'd suggest wearing straight-leg pants. Thing is skinny jeans are going out of style. They've been in since 2006, so the style is on it's last gasp.

Yeah, I haven't seen them around in a while. But "slim" pants are in which aren't skinny or straight.  I'll be 20-22 by the end of the. 10's so I think I'll skip the baggy pants.

I haven't seen skinny jeans before 2008 and only since 2010 on guys. It's still seen where I live, but I don't know what teenagers wear these days, since I only see 20-somethings every day, and it is possible "we" remain in early 10s fashion more easily than teenagers.
I don't hope the baggy sheesh is coming back. I remember stumbling over my jeans everyday until the early 00s;
after that jeans became less baggy (though still "loose") and I discovered something like a "belt" existed xD

Printed leggings (Zubaz for girls) arrived last year or so. It ties in with the 90s revival because Clarissa Darling (Clarissa Explains It All)  used to wear printed polka dot leggings back in 1991.

In real life, not celebrities. I actually have relatives who lived the '90s. Watching movies and television makes it more obvious too as those are effective places to get fashion info from a past period.

I'm starting to doubt you were born in 1977.  If you were really in your late '30s, your approach to your preferences would be more mature and not as demeaning of other people's tastes. I like the mid-late '90s. I could make a profile that I was born in 1975 just to make people listen to my opinion more, since no one will ever see my face as it's the internet. I'm guessing you were born much later, but made a profile since you love the '80s/early '90s so much.

I see a lot of women (also a few men) with jeans with cuts especially around the knee.
But I don't know how it is possible that that is "popular" because it was too 10 years ago.

This look is definitely still 'in' here in the UK.  My 16 year old daughter owns a pair with small random frayed/holes and I noticed a girl in town today with rips across both knees.

You know Vanilla and Marky Mark weren't celebrities the minute their albums dropped, right? I had no choice but to live the 90s also.

The mid-late 90s haven't gone anywhere, in my honest opinion. Besides, more marketers cater to those who love the mid-late 90s over early 90s fans. French Toast Crunch recently returned to cereal aisles, by the way. The early 90s never receive any recognition. Everyone is aware the mid 90s were the core years of the entire decade. Most people look back to them when talking about the 1990s. Did you know there are two shows on right now that are set in 1995?

Many peers of mine have vivid memories of the 80s and early 90s. The early 90s were the best days of my life!  8)

I'm curious. What age do you think I am?

The Yers I've been around that were born at the start of the 1980s to Reagan's second term tend to proudly proclaim that they love the whole '90s decade.

I only like the early 90s because they were 'the 1980s on steroids'.

There's a guy on here with the screen-name "90s Guy", but I guess its okay for him to make a profile on here because he enjoyed living in the full decade of the 90s.

For your information, its a free world. People can say and do what they want. I have every right to state my opinion as anyone else.

I think people are going a little overboard with this attempt at a grunge revival (grunge in the 2010s just feels so out of place, anyway). It's not unusual for me to see students at my university (usually female students) wearing pants with gaping holes in them, or with lines of horizontal slashes in them. Was grunge ever really that extreme? Whatever the case, it needs to stop. It's tacky as hell.

Oh, and I've been noticing women wearing really chunky scarves for the last couple of winters. I think it's more a style thing than practical, too. I live in Texas, and winters here are not that cold to require scarves that huge.  :P

There definitely seems to be a shift toward more feminine styles of dress for women. Skirts and dresses are a lot more popular these days than they were a few years ago. I'm noticing more poofy hairstyles (especially among black women, probably inspired by the "natural hair" movement going on), more pronounced lipstick and eyeliner.

I've seen printed leggings before the mid 10s, and the early 10s was about bright leggings and jeggings. Now I see alot of stuff with a faux leather or shiny surface to it too or just a stripe like that down the side. I'm seeing alot of florals and stripes in leggings and skinny yoga pants too.

The 10s is far more modest than the 2000s. 2000s fashion could be described as "seedy." Well, at least in young womens or girls fashion. Those crisscrossing triangle chest tops that made sure you spilled out were everywhere.  :o


I haven't seen skinny jeans before 2008 and only since 2010 on guys. It's still seen where I live, but I don't know what teenagers wear these days, since I only see 20-somethings every day, and it is possible "we" remain in early 10s fashion more easily than teenagers.

Oh they're still in, espcially jeggings on girls. I don't remember skinny jeans at all in the mid 2000s, just coming in on the late end. I know jeans for women have gotten more varied and the baggy wide leg crap is already making a comeback as seen on some store websites.  8-P Overalls are also creeping into some stores, double yuck. Leave those to little kids and farmers.

Gaping holed jeans wasn't just this decade though, they're in and out alot throughout time. Trends with jeans seem to change fast. I like scarves. They're an easy way to "dress up" without doing much. That and the cat eye look with black eyeliner is kind of throwback. Lipstick is back towards reds now instead of pinks.

There was a grunge revival in 2012/13, but it's out now. It was only a fad, I don't see it anymore. Skinny jeans became popular in 2006 for girls, 2007 for guys. Unless you lived in the Midwest where they were three years behind fashion trends (now they're more like one year), that's when they became popular. Instead of one person's experience being be-all end-all, let's just use all of our experiences and combine them.

2007 may be true for Americans, but I am certain that a European guy wearing skinny jeans before 2010 would be laughed upon and I'm sure the cities of western Europe are not places where fashion lags behind.

I also see both men and women wearing floral prints a lot these days and jeans jackets.

I don't recall the grunge revival, and I do live in the midwest. People tend to dress in what's comfortable around here and are not trendsetters. I don't see skinnies and jeggings going out of style here yet.

Actually, the early 90s DO receive recognition. When people look back at that era, they think about TV programs such as Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, The Real World, Saved by The Bell, Beverly Hills 90210, Full House, The Cosby Show, Married with Children, Rosanne and Family Matters; game consoles being Game Boy, Sega Game-gear, NES, SNES & Genesis; artists/bands like MC Hammer, Nirvana, Vanilla Ice, Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Dr. Dre, Michael Jackson, and Janet Jackson; movies such as Home Alone, House Party, Basic Instinct, Boyz in the Hood, White Men can't Jump, The Sandlot, Pretty Woman, Poetic Justice, Terminator 2, Kindergarten Cop, Wayne's World 1 & 2, Dazed & Confused and Thelma & Louise.

How come you don't think about any of those when reminiscing about the early 90s?

I don't pay attention to these things really, but here in the UK, I've noticed:

Skinny jeans - this is very much a 'in the past 5 years' thing, maybe it's different in the US
Plaid shirts
Converse shoes
Leather jackets - everyone needs to own at least one
Baseball caps
Sweatpants are suddenly okay to wear in public, as long as they're skinny and not baggy

Funny thing is, the above applies to both genders. Seems a lot of fashion revivals ignore gender.

The early 2010s really weren't all that different from the 2000s. I see the mid '00s and the early '10s as the same era. Later in the decade, I won't be surprised if people call 2010-13 "the 2000s", and people looking at early '10s things and saying "That is so 2000s!"

You're right, but I feel like those years 2009-2011 were very neon. I remember people wearing neon sweaters. Also, lots of yellow 2009-2010 apparently due to the financial crisis.

Well, there is the Target Style Spring 2015 "Groove is in the Heart" and Dentyne Ice Breakers Duo commercials on TV right now. It's nice to see to see Michael Keaton on the big screen again as a superhero in Birdman. Michael Keaton will always be Batman to me. People still don't look back to that era as much as they do the middle part of the 1990s.

1991 really was the year!!!

The Sandlot, Poetic Justice, Wayne's World 2 and Dazed and Confused are all mid 90s movies. Some of them were made in 1992, but none them were out when Bush 1 was still president. Other than those, you covered the period perfectly.

Well, there is the Target Style Spring 2015 "Groove is in the Heart" and Dentyne Ice Breakers Duo commercials on TV right now.

I already did. Some of the things you mentioned i said them in my post.

Oh and just because all those movies were released in 1993 doesn't mean they all had a mid 90s vibe. Some of them may have had a early 90s atmosphere. Not every early 90s trend disappeared by January 1, 1993.

A good fraction of the movies released in the early 90s were filmed in 1989. Does that make them late 80s flicks? Movies filmed in 1992 fit in more with those of the Boring '90s. The tone and clothing worn by the lead characters of "Poetic Justice" and "Menace ii Society" are what sets it apart from the hood movie classics of the early 90s. Quite a few characters in films like "Boyz N the Hood" and "Juice" wore clothing articles that were popular in 1989 only. With "Menace ii Society" and "Poetic Justice", the actors sported new clothes from the years 1990-1992. The most notable difference in "Menace ii Society" was the edginess to it, the main character Cain would have never died in an early 90s hood film.

By 1993, filmmakers had more of an idea of what a 90s movie should be like. Compare the 1993 picture "Airborne" to 1991's "Toy Soldiers" and you'll see a major difference in the way the characters dress. The boys of "Toy Soldiers" look like 'Degrassi High' extras while the characters of "Airborne" look as if they could be regulars on "Party of Five".

I'm sorry to say this to you, but it was not acceptable to wear the trendy clothing of 1989 (first year of the Bush 1 era) at the very start of 1993. Darker colors were popular at that time and not neon green tops anymore. As an example, peers of mine went from wearing Hornets Starter parka jackets (teal colored) to Cowboys Starter parkas jackets (navy blue) after Super Bowl XXVII. Around that time, young African American and Mexican males were donning Ben Davis shirts and Carhartt jackets to imitate Dr. Dre. You are partially correct, some styles and brand-name clothing lines introduced in the early 90s didn't disappear by the start of 1993.

Not true. The '90s nostalgia of 2011-2014 was all about the early '90s. I was obsessed with the early '90s around 2012/13. I bought a lot of songs from that time period and I watched a lot of shows. The mid '90s nostalgia didn't really kick in until late 2014, so it's still very new. The early '90s are now eternally cool. Once something hits 20 years old, it is no longer irrelevant. It is cool for the rest of time.

I know what I'm talking about, thank you.

It doesn't take a genius to know that every filmmaker in 1989 had to think of something that would work for the next decade. You really weren't alive in the late 80s, but everything created in them was 'for the 90s'. By 1993, filmmakers were able to look at the films that went to number one at the box office in 1990 and '91. From there, they picked out the contents (film trends) that made those flicks so successful at the time. After seeing Terminator 2, most filmmakers came to realization that every action picture of the Clinton years should be extreme.

No, I'm not an analyzer of the 1990s decade but I did live in every year of them.

With my last post, I wasn't saying that people dumped their neon clothes before December 31 of 1992. In fact, some people wore their new neon tees from early 90s well into the mid 90s. They were few and far in between. Darker colors were a much bigger deal in 1993-1996.

The 90s nostalgia of 2011-2014 was a mixed bag.

I do remember seeing t-shirts that bore a similarity to Guess Jean shirts from 1990 :

There were also teens who looked as if they just walked from out of 1994 (core year of the mid 90s) in 2011:

You pointed out that some characters of "Boyz N the Hood" were wearing dark colors, not "Menace". I never said that every character in "Menace ii Society" wore darker colors.

Here's what I stated:

"Quite a few characters in films like "Boyz N the Hood" and "Juice" wore clothing articles that were popular in 1989 only. With "Menace ii Society" and "Poetic Justice", the actors sported new clothes from the years 1990-1992. "

I don't know what the "2010s look" is, just seems like a continuation of existing perennial fashion staples or some unoriginal rehash, there's nothing distinct.

I think you're exaggerating a tad. Go to Google Images and search "high school students 2004," then "high school students 2014." I did, and there are numerous notable differences in the way they're dressed. The most obvious difference I see is that fashion (for girls, at least) today is dressier and more colorful.

Also, there are some fashion trends from ten years ago (such as tall, baggy tees) that would not fly today. Similarly, it's safer for guys to wear shorts that go above the knee. I know this because when I was in junior high ten years ago I was criticized for wearing shorts that didn't go below my knees.

You were right about all of what you said except the bold. I have pictures of my sister's high school graduation in 2004, and the clothes are very bright. Not neon, but definitely along the lines of Crayola markers. Watching the first season of Veronica Mars is further proof of this.

In 2014 monochrome was really in, and still is today. Even the guys dress better than they did in 2004 (which was ripped jeans and flip-flops *barf*). The fact that navy, gray, white, and black are what is mostly sold in stores makes it way less casual.

I notice it varies from area to area. In urban areas, people are more style-conscious, and keep on top of fashion trends. People in suburban/rural areas don't care as much, and dress less fashionably.

I remember, back in late 2012, I saw a female classmate wearing a fur-trimmed coat and pajama pants tucked into boots. I thought, "What was the point in dressing up every other part of your body except your legs?"

Personally, I don't wear sweats in public anymore unless I'm about to go to the gym.

What should a fashionable young man wear in 2015?


For a super trendy look and appear outdated by the end of the year:

Twill Jacket, preferably navy
Gingham Oxford shirts buttoned up all the way
Super fine gauge sweater
Jogger pants, irregardless of color, must be above the ankle bones.
No-show socks or sockless
Woven belt
Boat shoes or pleather Vans


For something less ridiculous and more timeless:

Leather jacket
Cable-knit medium gauge sweater, gray recommended
White or black undershirt
Khaki Chino pants, straight leg
Black socks
Leather belt, black or brown
Round-toe loafers or Oxfords, preferably black


My style is a little different, but much more like the less trendy one.

2010s fashion is drab, boring, and nothing pops out. Everything is much too neutral and subdued and there is nothing that pops out at you.

This is what I mean:

Those are high-fashion pictures taken in 2010. Those outfits were never in style. Here is a recently uploaded picture on wikipedia on "2010s in fashion", representing the style of women's fashion in the mid '10s:

This is better than what was fashionable in the 2000s...

I have lots of chino's (often coloured) and some jeans (slim fitted), high top shoes,
some flannel shirts and shirts with a pattern, also just blue collar shirts, because I
have some conservative days. I don't wear t-shirts as full clothes, don't know why,
I remember always wearing something with collar.

Walking through the city I see a lot men with floral shirts, black/grey slim jeans,
all kind of sneakers, and lots of leather jackets. But this is the first year I feel slightly
out of sync with what they sell in the shops.. but I'm 23, so.

I don't intend to be mean, but your grammar makes the statement hard to understand. The 2005 kid would look like a grandpa or the 2015 kid would look like a grandpa?
The latter.

The latter.


According to your profile, you live in Seattle (hipster and alternative central). So I'm not questioning that. Where I live guys dress a little more youthful, but you can tell the difference between the edgy guys and the conservative ones. I try to copy the '90s.

Cropped pants on guys, ugh! This is one of the bad trends. If you look at a bunch of pictures, you can see that when male models sit down while displaying the clothes, you can see that the hemlines of their pants ride up to the middle of their shins!

Bingo

In Britain the 1970s are going to be coming back. Bell-bottoms, tie-dye shirts, suede w/ shearling jackets, fringes, tassels, wide mirror aviators, huge lapels, pointy collars, earth tones, that kind of thing.

I would say 2010s fashion is just a hodge podge of 70s, 80s, and 90s trends.

Just like how 2000s was a hodge podge of '60s, '70s, and '80s
1990s was a hodge podge of '50s, '60s, and '70s
1980s was a hodge podge of '40s, '50s, and '60s
1970s was a hodge podge of '30s, '40s, and '50s

One thing I hate though is the Cara Delevigne eyebrows eeeeeeeeeeeeew! I find it super ugly to see really thick, dark eyebrows that make you look like you're from eastern europe. I always get the idea that you have bad breath.  8-P

It looks even worse when you dye your hair a lighter color and keep your eyebrows the same, it's just freaky! If you dye your hair, dye your eyebrows too! I hope those unsightly things go out of fashion soon. I want the pencil-thin over plucked eyebrows from the '90s to come back!  >:(

Some people are naturally that way - and many dyes can't be used around the eye.

That's a stereotype. Both my mom and my sister, who pluck their eyebrows, say it comes back finer and eventually they stop growing. It's the same with waxing.

Brooke Shields' signature feature were those full brows of her.  Brooke knew how to give good brow.  :P

In 2012 and 2013 this look was in for girls:
http://girlspotblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/90s-fashion.jpg

2014-present fashions are much more eclectic and diverse. Less hipster and androgynous, much cleaner and neutral. As for the style icons of the 2010's, the fingers easily point to Jennifer Lawrence and Ansel Elgort. If you want to know what the trendiest looks are, look no further than at what they're wearing. They fit mid 2010's fashion to a T.
