I have to write an article about the above. can anyone help me? please i have deadline till friday, so its kinda urgent.
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.
