The style of the 40s suits my body type the best, I need that nipped-in structured waist with a slightly A-line skirt. I have such a hard time finding clothes that flatters me on a grad student budget. That's probably why I just give up and wear jeans all the time!

I am with vanillaJ! i love the 60s mod style and big hair. also I have my late 60s style, wat can I say im a cali gal. My biggest compliments are when people my age tell me I look like their mom (ahem-before they were born ca. 60s) and I feel so flattered!!!

If I had been born in a different time, it would be in 1920, so that as a young woman in the '40s I could dance with my husband Gene Kelly along the Seine (or an MGM set version of the Seine) wearing Christian Dior...that was ACTUALLY designed by Christian Dior!!!

1880s.. talk about tailoring! For actually wearing in day to day life: Dresses: 1930s cause the drape suits anyone (and some of it's 1980s revival but most are overdone), and early 1970s hippie dresses (like Gunnes) cause they're just pretty. Skirts: 1930s-1950s. High waisted, perfect lengths. 1990s for the sudden mass availability of ethnic/belly dancer skirts! Suits: late 1930s-early 1940s. Blouses: Edwardian and their revival in the early 1970s. Jeans: 1990s (low rise bootcut is a blessing to us hyper thin & tall but still curvy girls) Purses: Edwardian for formal, late 1960s/early 1970s tooled leather for day to day, and 1990s Guatemalan and Indian bags.

i can't decide because i love elements from each of the decades. right now i'm in a heavy 20's-40's phase, though.

I love them all for different reasons but I have to say I think the classiest looks came from the 40s.

'60s! I love everything in fashion about it- the sophisticated Jackie O, the Twiggy & Edie Sedgwick mod, and the hippie counter-culture. It's just amazing, I wish I could have lived it!

I would have said love them all except for the Grunge and Punk. Although I did find Vivian Westwood's take on those interesting but not for me.

The 20s and the 80s are my fav. Both vibrant and fun. As a short little pear however, I look the best in those perfectly nipped 50s dresses.

I voted for the 50s, but for me it's more of mid-50s to mid-60s.. I hate that the 60s are usually written off as "hippie" when, as VanillaJ pointed out, there was the whole mod thing (etc!), too.

The 20's and the 30's. But that's because I have the tiny flat-as-a-board body that those flapper dresses and coats required. If I was curvy I'm sure I would appreciate the 50's more!

ah the 20s! Loving the flapper look, the short finger-waved hair, the loose dresses!

I picked the 1960s but I love any of them going from the non-disco 70s (the bohemian folky 70s instead and the look from Love Story) all the way back to the 20s. I love that picture of Lauren Bacall. And doesn't punk really belong to the 70s? Even though I guess people were still dressing punk in the 80s.

definitely the 40's. that era just felt so romantic and the woman were always dressed so well.

Definitely the classic and glamorous 40's/50's (not the Fonzie stuff).

Mostly 60's and some 70's.

For me, it's a tie between the 20s and the 40s...but I agree, each era has something special about it.

I chose 60s, but it was a toss up between the 60s and the 80s....Both are incredibly interesting to me and I wish in the 80s I had been old enough to enjoy all of the trends. I want big hair to come back.

i love the crispness and pristeen look of the forties - you had no choice but to look good. but the sixties and seventies are a neck and neck second place.
