Double heeled platforms, harem pants, snoods, high-waisted everything, exaggerated shoulders, jump/play suits, over-the-knee boots, sequins and cinched waists, amongst other things, are currently the fashion industry and style-savvy fashionistas' 'flavours of the month'. These trends have slowly and steadily inundated the catwalks before filtering down to the high street over the last few seasons. Shoppers have flocked in droves to empty the rails and get their manicured mitts on these 'hot new trends'. This all sounds fine and good. However, it does beg the question of whether our generation has its own look and if so, what trends would sum up our 'look'? In previous decades, the trends of the era were more often than not reflective of the happenings and changes in society at that point in time and as such, the fashions of the particular decade could be seen to play an important role.
The big question is, are our generation simply copying old trends from different eras, or do we actually have our own identity?
