• Someday This Will Be Remembered Like This

    Every now and then, I see this image macro in my facebook and instagram feeds:

    It’s funny. Styles that are common now will be looked back upon as silly. This applies to all of us, not just the bearded hipsters. Looking back at photos of myself from the ’90s and even the decade of the 2000s, I see that clothing and hairstyles have changed a lot. My chokers and JNCO jeans look silly to the teens of now.

    Even things that aren’t currently considered “out there” will be looked back upon as outdated. Wearing relaxed fit jeans with white sneakers was a “safe” and “normal” look that people of a wide age range wore during the early-to-mid ’90s, but it seems so out of style now that we watch sitcom reruns from 2 decades ago. Eyeglass frames that were usual in the ’90s look odd to us now. I wear bronzer now and it’s been in style since around the late ’90s. We think it looks a lot better than the red and pink blushes of the past, but someday a younger generation will see photos of me with my bronzer and think, “Wow, that’s ridiculous”.

    So let’s not just laugh at others. Let’s laugh at ourselves. Here are some other things that don’t seem too wild now, but may someday be looked back upon differently:

    someday-ombre-hair someday-contour-makeup
    someday-normcore someday-eyebrows
    someday-suitjacket someday-lovepink
    someday-casualtie

    We all look ridiculous to the future, so dress how you see fit.

    • Some of these already look ridic.

        Some of it is ironic.

        Unfortunately future generations won’t get it as each generation thinks they invented irony and it was something their parents never had.

        Just like sex.

      I cropped my hair short in the Eighties and stuck with it. It’s not so much a fashion statement as a zero-maintenance option. No facial hair as it would irritate me. Black jeans, leather jacket, Doc Martens and a black t-shirt with a comic or film-based theme. It’s what I’m comfortable with. I had the same trench coat for 25 years.

      • Sounds like a nice, classic alt look to me. 🙂

      If you live long enough, something really weird happens: you find yourself wearing one of those styles that you used to think were laughable.
