Then came the “Me Decade” the 1970s with the mini skirt, bellbottom pants, t-shirts, jeans, sweaters, sneakers and the hippy look.  In the 1980s bold neon colors, shoulder pads, shiny jewelry and clothing with sequins and diamantes were all the rage. Clothing styles in the 1990s varied from jelly shoes, overalls, bandanas, bucket hats and scrunches.
