If you mostly answered A, you’re a 90’s and 80’s chick. You love the big hair, grunge, off-the-shoulder, crop tops of the recent decades and you wish you lived in them all over again. While there are definitely some differences between the 80’s and 90’s, both were about pushing fashion boundaries and being very experimental with your identity. So throw on that lip liner, choker and crop top and call it a day.
If you mostly answered B, you’re into the disco days of the 70’s or the swingin’ 60’s. You’re all about free love, civil rights and having a good time! Naturally, your clothes reflect that part of your personality. Odds are you have bell bottoms in your drawer or even a super cute mini skirt that you bought for Halloween but wear anyway. This style is very in right now and is very casual and laid back, making it low maintenance and pretty easy to throw together.
If you mostly answered C, then the 40’s and 50’s are your inner fashion era. This time was an extremely patriotic and community-oriented time. Thus, women dressed appropriately and modestly to match with their environment. Although this didn’t stop some women from keeping it sexy like Brigitte Bardot, Marilyn Monroe or Bettie Page. High waisted shorts and pants, A-line dresses and red lipstick is totally your thing and you wear it well!
If you mostly answered D, you love to dress like it’s the 1910’s to the 1930’s. This liberal, exciting and elegant time was not only an important time in history for breaking societal conventions, but an amazing time for fashion. Think short bobs, shorter hemlines, and incredible costume jewelry. This style is incredibly glamorous and while you might stand out in the crowd, that’s totally what you were going for, right?
