From the Paper:

"Fashion in clothing means the current or prevailing style acceptable to most people, and widely used. Fashions come and go, while others later undergo a redefining process after some time to change their outlook (Kim 15). The decision on what to put on, for most people, depends on the current style of a particular dressing. Experts in the fashion industry refer to the 2000s period as a mash up decade (Bryan 21). This involves fusion of previously discarded trends in clothing with the current styles, and a mix of various subcultures to define the clothing industry. These years indicate a vast improvement in fashioning, and considerable shift from different styles into the current ones in use up to date.
The trends in clothing during this decade are numerous, ranging from men's choices to women's dresses. The period before the 2000s characterizes dress involving fittings and other types of clothes which completely covered the body. Men, for instance, wore khakis while robes were typical in women. The shift in fashion trends has seen tremendous changes in types of clothing people have."
