Clara's 2010 Everyday Clothing

The most common type of everyday clothing in the United States today is probably a t-shirt and jeans. Although t-shirts have been basically the same shape for many years, there are differences in styles in different years. In the late 2000s, and through 2010, t-shirts had a more fitted shape than in previous years. Scoop necks and v-necks were popular (and still are). Clara has both styles of t-shirts this week.

She also has some flare jeans, which returned to popularity in the first decade of the 2000s. By 2010, flare jeans had lost 1970s wideness, and narrowed to a simple bootcut profile, seen in Clara's outfit. In addition, Clara has a pair of capris with rolled hems, also a pretty popular style in 2010.

This is a simple mix-and-match outfit, so you can use either shirt with the jeans or the capris.

What can make this a complex project is how you decide to decorate the shirts and pants. Are you going to use stripes? flowers? words? Perhaps the pants have flowers or patches. Despite the apparent simplicity of the clothing, this fashion page leaves a big space for creativity. Enjoy!

Here are some popular colors from 2010:
