    The flares in 1978 were only out by a few years.

    It's interesting to see how hats always seemed to be an essential part of these outfits. And not simple hats, but elaborate and unwieldy-looking ones.

    Considering the population density of cities today it would have been a nightmare to go about your daily commute in these outfits, imagine trying to ride the bus, hahaha.

    I've studied a lot of predictions and noticed a common factor, most of designs look like they are from the era they were drawn. Human kind cannot predict something they don't know, they just reimagine what they have at a time.

    Well they probably just keep on simplifying fashion until everyone wears the same clothing based on the purpose they have in life.But then there will always be the counter culture. If you like studying predictions have you seen The Transcendent Man? I could not sit through it..I found it to be depressing and disturbing.
