100 Years of Men’s Fashion Trends

Fashion keeps on evolving with time, as people like to experiment new things and they start changing the way they are dressing. Today, we will see how it has evolved in the past 100 years.

If we talk about the ancient days, fashion didn’t play much part in people’s life, and we can see them just wrapping a shawl around their body. As the time moved on, people started to design clothes slowly, and it has evolved heavily from heavy leather to light nylon.

So let us see how men used to dress 100 years ago, and how they dress now.

If you wanna see this look, you should watch the British series Peaky Blinders, and you will get a clear vision of how fashion was in the 20s.

Boys started to wear colors that were typically meant for girls, but as gender equality has started, boys are seen wearing mostly those kinds of colors. Also, thanks to some celebrities because of whom the hoodies have started to trend, and they became more popular due to TikTok. Sweatpants have become more popular at this time and the oversized clothes are back in fashion. Nowadays, this kind of fashion is called soft boy fashion.
