Nothing changes quite like fashion. What's in one season can be out the next. Then again, as they say, everything old is eventually new again. Have you been to a mall recently? The Nineties are back in a big way.

It's easiest to spot these trends in women's fashion. Fortunately, we have loads of old catalogs to take us back through time.

The following models posed for JC Penney in catalogs back in the day. See if you can place them into the correct year!

  1. These were garden variety dresses that year.

  2. They must be from the city of broad shoulders.

  3. No wonder people said things like "peachy" and "groovy."

  4. She is giving it her all in plaid and polka dots.
  5. Is that Lori Loughlin? (Yes, it is Lori Loughlin.)

  6. Now that is a lot of denim.

I lived through (but didn't wear) all of these, and still got 2 wrong, DRAT! I could tell many of them by the models used (as I used to follow them BC - before computers). Oh and the many years of perusing the Sears and Penneys catalogs helped too. LOL

I got tripped up by 'lag', parts of "the 70s' held un into the early 80s, parts of 'the 80s' were still things in the 90s so I found myself thinking "Decade" and not Year

I took the quiz again. Now that I know that none of the pictures are 1960, it was easy! 11 out of 14.

7 out of 14. The clothes from 1960 and 1970 look a lot alike.

I didn't do very well, but Groovy was a 60s word.
