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Even things that aren’t currently considered “out there” will be looked back upon as outdated.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:
We all look ridiculous to the future, so dress how you see fit.
