About This Quiz

What's currently in your closet? Is it a few "Monster Mash" pieces that resemble "The Addams Family" TV show? Or, does your wardrobe contain silver glamour pieces like sequin purses and dresses? If you're a trendy person, then your answer is probably "both," because these are just a few types of garments that have appeared on one of the most recent runways. But did you know that the world of fashion is continually evolving, and what may seem modern now will one day turn into classic styles of the past? For example, floppy hats, platform shoes and denim shirts were once "modern" in the '70s, but now, these pieces are considered to be vintage.

Although fashion is changing, designers still look to the past for stylish inspiration. Take "puff shoulders," for instance. These could be seen on almost every dress and shirt in the '80s, but they're back in style. Fashion designers may also add more trendy elements to some of these classic pieces, such as lace or various Pantone colors of the year. (Fun fact: Did you know the 2020 Pantone color is classic blue?) So whether you think your style is modern or retro, it's time to take a look into your wardrobe with this stylish quiz!
