Subject: A fashion review of 2009-2019

Written By: imrane on 02/23/20 at 12:39 pm

Oh my, I bought an Ed Hardy-inspired T shirt in 2013. Here he was big until 2014. Somehow I see less classic Converse chuck tailors, are they on the way out? Oh and beards were not at all popular here before 2014. Will quote the ones from my favorite part of the decade, do you agree/disagree?

In 2009, Ed Hardy was big. Everyone was rocking those tattoo-like sleeveless tops with neon headbands. Standing out from the crowd was huge this year, attention-grabbing pieces ranged from bejeweled tops to stacks of Silly Bandz. Colorful, unique pieces were, and will always be, in.

Everyone was putting on their feather earrings and hair extensions in 2010. It was a time of exploration, new beginnings and leather jackets. We wanted to be cool, but cool was something we were still trying to define. Nevertheless, leather jackets remain a staple in everyone’s closet. Feathers, not so much.

2011 was the year of DIY. It was a time of dip-dyeing your hair with Kool Aid and having sweet-smelling hair for days. If your hair didn’t have a strong stench of watermelon, there was no place for you this year. Maybe you could’ve redeemed yourself by wearing one of those skull-print scarves or sporting some big bangles. But like most things, these trends didn’t stand the test of time.

“The Hunger Games” was big in 2012, as was KONY and the fear of the world ending. Because of this, everyone seemed to take after the esteemed Katniss Everdeen. Green military jackets and Katniss braids were huge. And like Everdeen, these trends have lived despite it all.

In 2013, metallic embellished boots were what everyone was talking about. Think Balenciaga. Now, those were something. Because these boots weren’t super affordable, people made up for it by dressing up sweatshirts or wearing all white (even after Labor Day.) This year broke every rule, but we loved it. These trends will continue to be trends for as long as fashion is still a thing.

Showing a little more skin became pretty popular in 2014. Peek-a-boo cutouts and crop tops thrived. When the weather dropped, we’d cover up our artwork with a bomber jacket that hardly ever kept us warm. While bomber jackets seem to have fallen off the planet, crop tops are still going strong and peek-a-boo cutouts have simply evolved to really high slits.
