Reply Jorel February 14, 2012 Well, they were almost right in the ’60s and ’70s! lol Reply Anne February 14, 2012 I love that they can’t imagine women’s fashion ever going above the knee! Reply LeoBassy February 14, 2012 Whoever dreamed this up was most surely a Nancy Boy with far too much sugar in his britches. Reply qka February 14, 2012 Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months. – Oscar Wilde Reply Danelle February 24, 2012 So true. I look at some of the outfits I wore in the late 80′s early 90′s and they are no less hideous than this artist imagined. Reply Raf February 15, 2012 It’s fascinating that artists’ could not imagine much past redecorating a clown outfit over the years. Reply ap February 18, 2012 I claim “Duran Duran” and checkmate. Fine game, better luck next match. Reply Jim February 23, 2012 Pretty wacky, but the 1908 one wouldn’t have looked out of place in 1968! Reply Antonio March 14, 2012 The 1908 guy is a pimp Reply matao April 16, 2012 it kinda looks like everyone was either a witch or a pimp haha Reply Birdy May 7, 2012 1978 wasn’t far off, lol. And the silhouette of the skirts in 1932 are really similar to the tiered skirts that came out about 10 years later. The 70′s ones are very Beatles. Well played. Reply Meetzorp May 22, 2012 1978 only applied to members of Slade… Reply loren July 8, 2012 the 198 skirt is VERY acurate. It looks just like a 80s prom dress. Reply al July 25, 2012 It’s as if he expected us to go through the 20th century as a Grand Opera. Reply TR October 3, 2012 Obviously, they couldn’t imagine a woman wearing a bifurcated garment. That would be stuff like pants and shorts for those who don’t know. It was probably considered inconceivable for women to wear bifurcated clothing. I mean what next? Women straddling a horse when they ride it? Next thing you know, they may even be entering into sporting competitions. OMG! The horrors! Although, it looks like they had one man in an unbifurcated something or other, 1936, 37, and 60. Why don’t more men wear kilts? Reply Anonymous November 17, 2012 Looks better than some of the stuff we wear today Reply Ella March 3, 2014 Successfully predicted steampunk. Well done.
