ok so I have to write this paper, but I couldn't think of an idea (never can) so it was the last minute, and my friend Lindsie, came up with this.
Here's my opening, as you can see, I need extreme help. I'm horrible at writing papers such as:

Fashion through the 20th century

"She's not wearing that is she?" a school girl whispers loudly to her friend. The subject of conversation blushes and stares at the floor, quickly making a mental note to buy exactly what her rude classmate is wearing.
Fashion: both the delight and persecution of guys and girls alike. Delightful, because it is fun, and often, looking good makes you feel good. No, the five inch stilettos don't exactly relax your poor feet, but strutting down the halls in the latest fads makes you feel awed, admired. Tormenting, because it is expensive, and mostly stressful and tiring to keep up with these fast-paced designers.
What an individual wears will most likely, determine his social status, likeability, reputation etc.
Ever since 1900, fashion has ruled the households of many. In this paper, I intend to go from decade to decade as fashion runs its course in changing our society today.

there ya go. Given my subject, it is quite bland and boring, and poorly written. ugh.
please help!! :D

Heya! lol, I feel like I am doing a review :D

The beginning paragraph is pretty good, just don't add "In my paper." just take that little bit out, so it doesn't sound cheesy.

I suggest not just to mention clothes, but to talk about makeup, hair, jewelry, ect. Also, you should make the reason to your paper more clear in the beginning, so that people will stay hooked.

Hope I helped!

I think with the advent of 20th century fashion totally got re invented in itself. There sis no fixed rules or patterns follow people are constantly in a mood of change and experimenting new things.

Now people like some new type of fashion so they are also accepting retro style.

It's 5 years after the topic was created, I think the OP probably finished the essay.
