What sort of thing are you wanting help with?

I'd go through each decade and take the fashion cultures and then compare them to the predominant social changes. So, in the sixties/seventies there was more liberalisation and 'hippieness' which was reflected in the clothing with more wacky designs and women wearing more revealing stuff.

When our grandparents were young society was more reserved, more conservative and the clothing reflected that. Today we are much more raucous and more liberal and so clothing is brighter, shorter, cheaper, etc.

Well I know that when my grandparents were young wearing short skirts and other revealing things was....kind of not good lol.
Just start (for the heck of it) with the 1900's(or just start thinking around there). It's a pretty good place to start with because you have the flapper and all that (psychedelic stuff a bit after) which really changed society because showing more skin was accepted, and more uhm sexy clothes as well.
It also the clothes were heavier in the 1900s, vs like the 1960's were you had pretty light, flowy clothes which would reflect the 'hippie' era, and how people lived.
I hope that helps a little, at least in starting to think about what to say.

There'll be somebody there to break your fall
We are not alone
'Cause when you cut down to the bone
We're really not so different after all

I think it tends to be more (with a few exceptions) an expression of the mindset or philosophy of the given time than for practicality, so as well as researching the fashion cultures of various generations, and then look at the social and economic events at the time, and what philosophies were knocking around.
