Popular fashion trends the year you were born

Stacker Logo By Andrew Lisa of Stacker | Slide 1 of 101: If you were born in 1918, congratulations. According to the Pew Research Center, you're one of about only 72,000 centenarians in the United States and fewer than 500,000 worldwide. If you've lived that long, you've seen some big changes in fashion along the way. Some have come, gone, and come back again. Others were regrettable fads that thankfully stayed dead once they went out of vogue. Others caught on quickly and never went out of style.

Some fashion trends are the result of war, others are the brainchildrenĀ of bold, innovative designers. Some are born out of necessity, some are triggered by a single celebrity's taste, and others arrive by accident. No matter the reason, fashion both steers and reflects the climate and culture of the time. Here are 100 of the most memorable trends over the past century.
