By the way, Doc Martens have been around since the 1960s and have "trended" so often that by now they're could almost be considered a classic.

They first became "trendy" in the 1960s.

By the 1970s and 1980s they were being worn first by groups from punk rockers, to skin heads, to the police chasing after the skinheads.

In the 1990s, they became part of the grunge look.

And they're still around.

Urban Dictionary: Doc Martens
I would love to have a pair, saw some hunter green ones in Urban Outfitters, but they don't come in my size. Personally, they are fashionable, depending on what type of people you're talking about, one reason people like them, is they don't have your standard boot sole, so it last longer. I can see some instance where they might not perform as well as a timberland, but they are good boots. Those non-slick soles have a few disadvantages.

In 2003, Dr. Martens ceased UK manufacturing, and all production was moved to Thailand and China (although a small factory producing a limited number of "vintage edition" boots did start up again in England later). Some report an inferior product since the switch.

Funnily enough, I told her that 80s fashion is coming back, and she responded by saying 'Why the hell would anyone want to bring back the 80s?!', lol.
See my post from yesterday.

Even thinking of what I see young urbanites wearing now - is that a new fashion or is that just a redo of another decade? It's getting harder to tell.
Not really. The 90s was big on the 60s fashion. Honestly it was the first of the UNoriginal deacdes, no matter how much we don't want to admit it. Or perhaps thats when it started being more direct in pop culture.

I think there's a difference. My pre-2003 Mary Janes feel more durable than my post-2003 boots.

As I said before, they're not exact replicas, but they are definitely inspired by the bodysuits of the 90s. They may not be the exact one that you personally wore in the 90s, but that doesn't mean that a lot of the bodysuits that snap fasten at the crotch have nothing to do with the 90s, or that leotards worn as everyday clothes aren't 90s inspired.

Besides the pattern there isn't a whole lot of difference between

1990's bodysuit
Printed Cotton Spandex Jersey Double U-Neck Long Sleeve Bodysuit | American Apparel

or between

1990's floral bodysuit leotard one piece grunge
Ditsy Floral Print Bodysuit | FOREVER21 - 2000085027

or
90's grunge sheer black mesh bodysuit
Two-Tone Sweetheart Bodysuit | American Apparel


Again I'm not saying they are exact replicas. But they definitely got their inspiration for these bodysuits from the 90s. Its not just a coincidence that they are similar to the ones sold in the 90s.

I had the same thought.

What were the 70's styles?
