What do you think will happen to clothing as we know it in the near future? I'm not talking about electronic clothing, I mean just regular clothing that we wear today. Many people seem to think that socks will disappear in less than 20 years.

Within the next 10 years more clothes will have be made of materials with superhydrophobic attributes - allowing them to repel liquids and stains. They will also resist wrinkles, fungus, odors and bacteria.

If anything it will be integrated with the advance in technology. I cant see a situation where EVERYONE decides to throw out old clothes because it doesn't have the capabilities of the current generation. Another potential for the old clothes would be to donate them to people who cant even afford to buy clothes. I'm sure there will still be poverty in 10 years, probably not as bad today, but the idea still remains.

*****Around 2016 or so, the 90s will come back as a retro look. Flannel shirts made a short-lived comeback around 2007, but that was mostly about the hipster idea of ironic clothing from every era. This will be a full-fledged 90s revival. *****But this neo-90s look will be different from the original 90s look. This time around, the grunge aesthetic will be mixed with clothing inspired by the "flat" look that's swept the internet for the last couple of years. *****Example: a very basic, off-white t-shirt with a single thin line on it. - sort of like windows 8 in clothing form. And people will wear flannel shirts, ripped jeans and combat boots with it. *****A few years later, we'll start to see mass-produced clothing that integrates with your smartphone. The thing is, it will never be COOL. It'll be the clothing that people wear if they don't care much about fashion. *****Around the same time (2025?), I think we'll start to see one of the first major backlashes against technology. This will be reflected in the clothing, possibly as truly old clothing, like 1800s or maybe even clothing that looks like its from the middle ages. Basically, anything that looks like it's from an era long before computers. *****Then again, people might be wearing completely differert stuff. But clothing is definitely a reflection of society's mood. Since Society is currently obsessed with technology, the next 20 years in fashion will be about making a statement for, or against technology.

I hope you're right about 90s clothing! 90s clothing looks way better than the clothing of today, and it wouldn't surprise me if it did return at some point. I've noticed that this year, lots of people seem to be wearing 1940s/50s/60s-style jumpers and other items of clothing. Strange how certain eras seem to make comebacks at times.

I never heard anyone say this before. I think that socks will still be around for a while as a fashion tool and also to prevent the sweat from one's feet from getting into one's shoes.

[color=#add8e6;]Fashion is becoming increasingly minimal. If you have a look at the 2014 summer/spring styles of virtually any high fashion label, you'll find things that look like they belong on a science-fiction movie set.[/color]

 

[color=#add8e6;]In saying that, a lot of the garments actually look good and wearable. It's commonplace for designers to create things that people, at least in the majority of western society, would never wear (because of both the style and the extremely high cost). So to actually see really intriguing and wearable futuristic stuff, I'm pretty hopeful that we'll one day get rid of this generic uncultured garbage.[/color]

 

[color=#add8e6;]As for the 90's clothing revival, that's already happening. I consider it one of the best things to happen to fashion in awhile, however, it's very alternative at this point in time. For more information look up seapunk, vaporwave or 90's grunge fashion. Very creative and futuristic stuff happening there.[/color]

I don't get how "trends" are planned out in advance. How do they already know what's going to be "fashionable" in one/two years' time? But they already have 2014 and 2015 planned out it seems. Very odd.

It happens all the time. We see "huge advancements" in the news and don't hear anything else about them for years afterwards.

We won't be wearing clothes.

That's what I think, anyway.
