    People say that the 70's was hideous for fashion but I quite like it, have to say.

    No idea, but summer is best for seeing what the female species is wearing.

    That even works in scotland, despite the rubbish weather - I think it's a biological clock thing - come the summer months, rain or shine the kit comes off...wierd

    Any era where tweed is the garment of choice in the day time and black tie the garment of choice in the night time (the 20s?)

    As Lenny Henry once said, "We had style in the seventies, oh yes we did, it was crap mind"
    the late 80's, early 90's for me though

    Any hot summer's day here: loose skimpy cotton dresses and blouses, and just being to make out the shape and colour of a thong. :biggrin:

    It's all year round here in the North-East! On a Friday and Saturday night, anyway! :biggrin::biggrin:

    My fave era is the 50s (before I was born, mind) when all women seemed to have large and very pointy breasts...

    post punk and alternative 80s. flares were shite in the 70s and i couldn't believe they made a comeback.

    on the minus side, i doubt i'd look as dashing in stretched jeans these days :biggrin:
