Music + Fashion= Perfect Combination!

Hey guys,

Sorry I haven't been posting, I have been busy these past couple days. But anyway, off to our topic: Music and Fashion going together :). 

As we all know, music and fashion have been going together for years...

It mainly became a big deal when the 40s hit with the swing music era and the fashion to go with it:


As you can see, you can wear 40s type fashion nowadays and it looks amazing!

When the 50s hit with the rock 'n' roll era, fashion immediately changed everything:


As the rock n roll era went on, the skirts got more flowy for the girls, which is fun :).  Unfortuantely, you don't see many women dress like this often.


The 60s were when different varieties of clothing were shown, which also went with the rock n roll era continuing and when folk music began:

As you can see here, there's some different fashions in the 60s and also the girls from Mad Men are in here. You can even wear a lot of these styles now and i'll give you some of the links at the end.
As for the later 60s, early 70s were where the flowers really became popular(Hippie era):



Very "psychedelic" wouldn't you say? ;)

Then, later in the 70s, Disco music came around and you know what that means; Glitter/colorful floors/disco balls galore!:


















You can even wear a lot disco type of clothing nowadays and it's so cute! :)


When the 80s came into play, it became funk and more spandex clothing because music became edgier and funky:


















As you can see, Demi Lovato is sporting an 80s outfit in front of the paparazzi and a lot of 80s trends are coming back :).





The 90s came around and that was the grunge period, where the music was very edgy:

Here's Kurt Cobain from the band Nirvana, and they are the big band to start the grunge.

Here are the spice girls in the mid-90s.
    


I hope you guys get my point that music goes well with fashion, they even have the appropriate music to go with a fashion show(depending on the designer).

It just shows how much fashion influences our day to day lives(especially the music).

I hope this helps :). Now I am going to give you a couple place to get some cool decade clothing:


Forever 21

Banana Republic

And a few other stores would have it too. And also vintage stores/antique places.

I hope you enjoyed this blog and I can't wait to see what fashion trend is coming up next...
