    In the 1900s, girls were dressed in incredibly feminine pink bows and florals.

    By the 1910s, girls started to wear more colorful clothing, and ribbons were added as accessories.

    In the 1920s, dropwaist dresses were popular, as girls emulated flapper style. They wore their hair short, or set in deep waves.

    In the '30s, girls' dresses became more austere and frilly fashion was replaced with puff sleeves and Peter Pan collars.

    World War II brought with it new synthetic materials. Families were forced to make do with fewer garments, and military detailing like buttons and strong shoulders were in vogue.

    In the post-war '50s, girls started to wear bold colors, and dresses were fitted with tulle underskirts. Girls wore their hair in high, sassy ponytails.

    By the 1960s, there was a much greater freedom in fashion, and girls were wearing mini-skirts, and tighter garments.

    The '70s were all about collared dresses and jumpers in every shade of polyester imaginable. The style was super bohemian and hippie-inspired.

    In the '80s, girls were influenced by the emergence of things like MTV and pop music — and youth culture marketed just to them.

    The '90s were all about babydoll dresses and leggings.

    Comfort was the name of the game and the trickle down influence of grunge could be felt in the way girls dressed.

    The 2000s girl lived in her khakis and baseball tee. The vibe was all about "girl power" and tomboy cool.

    These days, girls are emulating their teen and adult counterparts more and more.
