The 2010s have thus far been defined by a revival of austerity era period pieces, hipster fashion, 1980s neon colors, and from late 2012 to 2015, unisex early 1990s styles influenced by grunge
Continuation of Past Fashion Trends [ edit ]
A great deal of clothing and hairstyles changed little overall from the 1990s to the 2010s, primarily marked by changes in frequency, such as men wearing neckties less frequently, women being more apt to expose their bra straps, and members of both sexes being more likely to get tattoos.
Jeans and sneakers remained common, and the aesthetics of many commonplace items, such as cars, remained similar to what was present in the 1990s, or in some cases, the 1980s.
The decline in the formality of men's fashion that started in the 1960s continued, with men wearing informal clothing on a regular basis, even at work or while travelling, an extension of Beau Brummell's older idea that gentlemen shouldn't try to outshine the ladies for attention.
Failure for men to shave on a daily basis became increasingly normal.

From 2010 to 2013 many late 2000s fashion trends remained popular in Europe, the United States, East Asia, and Latin America, especially acid wash skinny jeans, "trouser-dresses", romper suits,
preppy pastel colored skinny jeans, and capri pants cropped at the ankle. Possibly due to the poor economy in the early years, the midi skirt and the maxi skirt were the most common skirt and dress styles, with the hemline standards being the longest they had been since The Great Depression.
1990s influences [ edit ]
From late 2012 onward, 1990s inspired fashion began to make a comeback in the UK, USA, Philippines, and Australasia among women aged 18–30.

1990s revival [ edit ]
In America, the trend caught on in 2013. The Grunge look had made a comeback due to the influence of Steves Peeps, an American artist famous for designing the costumes of pop star Lady Gaga.
Mid 2010s (2013-2016) [ edit ]
Urban fashion [ edit ]
In 2014, men's fashion was heavily influenced by the improving economy and fashion-conscious cities such as London, New York City, Paris, and Milan, as well as imitating elements of luxury fashion. Bright colors (especially the Ed Hardy shirts) went out of style in favor of black, white, beige, taupe, gray, and various shades of dark green. Clothing items included tailored sweatpants, jersey shirts, chunky hiking boots with thick soles,
bomber jackets, leather jackets, denim jackets, thick oversized coats, double-breasted jackets and blazers,
shorts riding above the knee (toward a 5" inseam, down from 15"),
Sales in floral print clothing designs for men more than doubled amongst fashion retailers between 2013 and 2014.
From 2014 onwards, the grandfather collar shirt emerged as a semi-casual fashion item in western cultures, traditionally being a formal or manual work garment.
In China and Europe, retro feiyue martial arts sneakers in red, white and blue made a comeback.
Formal Wear [ edit ]

In the UK, Italy, Australia
and US, many professional men wear grey mohair or houndstooth office suits, usually with two-button fastening, a single vent, and narrow lapels
Businessmen in Asian countries like the Philippines generally followed the trend, but dispensed with the necktie in favor of a semi-formal, simple shirt better suited to the hot tropical climate. As part of the general 1980s revival, the waistcoat
In the UK, US and Germany, the suits of the mid 2010s often featured checks,
and the stripes on pinstripe suits became narrower

Youth fashion [ edit ]
Hipsters and Steampunks [ edit ]

By the early 2010s, British, American, and Filipino indie clothing had moved away from the bright colors and overt 1960s styling of the mid-2000s in favor of a more "grown up" intellectual look, with 1990s style earth-tones like grey, burgundy, brown, teal, and beige.
homemade jewelery, and thrift store chic plaid shirts remained popular in Europe.
Drop crotch pants, designed by the Danish brand Hümor, became more and more popular in Europe amongst hipsters and hip hop fans, who replaced their skinny jeans and carpenter jeans with "old school but modern" style.
In America, Australia and Japan, steampunk gained regional popularity among some young people aged 18-25.
From 2011-15, members of this subculture often combined Neo-Victorian
clothing such as top hats, pocket watches, or (for girls) corsets, velvet or brocade dresses, brooches, and black, dark red or brown leather waistcoats, with bowties, hipster inspired beards and tweed clothing, jewelery made from brass gears, dark skinny jeans, worker boots, and flying goggles.
Classic Preppy [ edit ]

Scene Kids and Seapunks [ edit ]
From 2010-2013, the androgynous scene subculture (also known regionally as "Shamate" and "Coloridos") remained common in the West Coast United States, Europe, Australasia, parts of Asia,
and Latin America, especially in the Brazilian city of Fortaleza.

This movement influenced several mainstream pop and hip-hop artists during the mid 2010s, most notably Azealia Banks and Rihanna.

Hip-Hop [ edit ]
Retro 1980s fashions like snapbacks, skinny acid-wash jeans, bucket hats, baseball caps, baseball jackets, nylon tracksuits, varsity jackets, Vans, Chuck Taylors, rain boots, retro Nikes, Shell tube socks, leather jackets, Levis, Adidas and Nike apparel, gold chains, Ray Ban sunglasses, Air Jordans, and over-sized sweaters, and colors such as red, green, and yellow, made a comeback in the African American community due to the influence of drum and bass, rave music, and indie pop -inspired rappers. Independent brands have risen to popularity, as well as floral print items and tie-dye items. Button-down shirts are often worn fully buttoned.
Fashion designers such as Riccardo Tisci and Rick Owens begin to gain a new popularity within hip hop, popularized by rappers such as Kanye West and A$AP Rocky. Such designers inspire a "darker" aesthetic involving monochromatic colour schemes (usually black or grey), extra-long shirts usually sporting over-sized neck openings and asymmetrical hems, skinny jeans that are worn with long inseams and an aggressive taper to cause bunching up or "stacks" near the ankle (a style heavily popularized and sported by Kanye) and high-top sneakers. Black boots, leather jackets, denim vests, bombers, monochrome sports jerseys, waxed jeans, black varsity jackets, tapered sweatpants, drop-crotch trousers, layering shorts over leggings and occasionally floral print are all popular trends within this style as well. Other notable rappers that sport this look include Kendrick Lamar, Danny Brown, and Pusha T.
Cholo and Chicano [ edit ]
By 2015, many young chicanos on the American West Coast had abandoned the garish Western inspired clubwear in favor of a more authentic 1950s inspired look. Pachuco style Zoot suits, fedoras and panama hats made a comeback,
together with more typical casual rockabilly fashions for everyday wear such as slim jeans, black leather jackets, bowling shirts, brightly colored blouses and flouncy skirts for girls, polka dot dresses with petticoats, and flowers worn in the hair.
K-Pop and Jejemon [ edit ]
Due to the spread of Hallyu Wave worldwide, millions of Asian and Asian-American youths have become addicted to K-Pop. These are the people who love listening to South Korean music and follow the style of artists and pop groups like Big Bang, Wonder Girls, Kim Soo Hyun, or Gangnam Style singer Psy.
Since the Korean girl and boy bands wore extravagant clothing, some of the hardcore fans in China, Korea, America and the Philippines tried to copy their idols and started wearing K-Pop style hairstyles and clothing.
These included skull, floral or honeycomb prints, monochromatic shirts, silk jackets featuring stylized Asian art prints or pop art,
leather skirts, black and neon printed leggings, retro joggers, short shorts, black and gold jewelery, brightly colored tuxedo jackets, tracksuits, basketball shirts, leather caps, and sequined or glitter jackets.
During the early part of the 2010s, a new youth subculture called Jejemon arose in the Philippines, sparking a brief moral panic among some older conservatives and other youths.
The Philippine Daily Inquirer describes Jejemons as a "new breed of hipster who have developed not only their own language and written text but also their own subculture and fashion.
These predominantly working class youths are associated with wearing trucker hats and use their own language through texting and via social media such as Facebook.
They are often criticized by others for not using the words properly, even the Department of Education discouraged use of the Jejemon language. Apart from the language, the Jejemons were also criticized for their fashion and manners. From early 2013 onwards, with the rise of smartphones which began to overtake feature phones in terms of sales in the country, the phenomenon seems to have made a gradual decline in mainstream popularity.
2010s beauty trends [ edit ]
Hairstyles [ edit ]
Women's hairstyles in the early 2010s have been fairly individualistic, although many British, Australian, Russian, Korean, and continental European women keep their hair traditionally long, from straight to wavy with a centre or side parting. Bangs are often either side swept or left straight down above the eyes,
and many women also use hair extensions to make their hair look much longer and fuller.

By the mid 2010s, straight and wavy hairstyles were dominant globally, especially the chignon, French twist, updo, and braided ponytails. It also became increasingly fashionable for European, Asian
and American women to cut their hair into shorter styles,
Solid colored hair was generally considered the most fashionable in the early years of the decade, but from 2012-15 it became increasingly common for American women to dye their hair in an ombré style, sometimes with highlights.
Many African-American and Afro-Caribbean British women favor natural, Afro-textured hair in reaction to the damage caused by relaxers which were extremely popular in the 2000s, opting instead for natural products to style their hair.

Makeup and cosmetics [ edit ]
In Britain, the minimalist makeup, neon 1980s inspired colors, and smoky eye look of the late 2000s carried on as a trend in many parts of the country. In other areas, these went out of fashion as women sought to imitate the fake tan and thick "Scouse brow" popularized by Kate Middleton and the cast of The Only Way is Essex and Desperate Scousewives .
Body modifications [ edit ]

New Zealand and Australia.

Facial hair [ edit ]
In many western countries, the US, and Eastern Europe,
the growing of a full beard became a popular trend amongst young males in the early-to-mid 2010s, with some suggesting this was due to the influence of the hipster subculture, the lumbersexual ideal, and the Movember campaign.
An increase in facial hair transplants was reported in the United Kingdom in the first three years of the decade,
and the trend approached what researchers predicted would be a 'peak' level of desirability.
