Can you tell if these women are in a catalog in 1970, 1980 or 1990?

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.
  7. Big collars were big that year.
  8. Can you place this pair into the correct decade?
  9. Try not to bruise your perfect score on this black and blue combo.
  10. Does she know Zorro?
  11. Part robe, part quilt.
  12. Go for the tie.
  13. Are you sensing a pattern here?
  14. Go for the gold (or silver)!

Fun run on the catwalk. Couldn't decide betwn 80s & 90s on the Denim & the Zorro looks so got those 2 wrong. Important to remember that JC Penny catalog was very vanilla, often behind the times if your life was more fashion-forward.

Well I lived ALL those eras and don't remember those styles in the years they put them in.
I remember the 1940's and 50's well and some of them fit into those eras. I was a singer through most of those era's up to 1998, and I saw all kinds of dress - never saw most of those shown. And the hair styles are off too.
