What’s your personal fashion history? As fashion trends have come and gone, which ones have resonated with you over the years? (That might not be the same question as which ones actually looked good on you.)
Which ones did you wear gladly? Which ones did you wear that you shouldn’t have worn. What fashion history do you fervently hope does not repeat itself? “Big hair” of the 80’s comes to my mind.
It can be fun(ny) to provide others with a personal fashion history or retrospective. I’m not talking about just cutting out old magazine covers, though they can provide inspiration. (See M. Howsom’s Vogue Cover Pinterest Board) Write yourself into the story. What did you wear? What were you required to wear? Did you think you were “all that” at the time? What do you think now?
