Fashion designer Daphne Guinness, speaking to Interview in 2011, observed that "fashion is not just about trends. It's about political history." And while that was certainly true in the 2010s, the last decade of clothing has reflected other things too: our celebrations, our tragedies, our downtimes, our labors. We have admired works of art and held opinions about the colors of suits. Sometimes, fashion could be dictated by something as simple as a meme we laughed at — and then decided to try on ourselves.

To look at a decade worth of clothes is to take the pulse of a culture. From neon to beige and back again, these were the biggest fashion moments of the last 10 years.
