This is a fun question. For me, it's almost everything. I love many era's in fashion, for several reasons, and can find a particular style from each that I adore.

I have always laughed at myself when it comes to florals. I love them, but I never think traditional "pretty" florals look right on me. They do, but I always feel uncomfortable in them. Strange. I'm fond of the embroidered or abstract/bright big and bold florals of the 60's and 70's. I blame this on my psychedelic floral childhood suit case, which I drug everywhere.

I'm also digging the long bohemian skirts. Considering the seasons are reveresed in the southern hemisphere, I've noticed many of my favourite colors seem to be everywhere (a nice autumn palette of buttery yellow, rusty orange, dark green and some lovely shades of red and blue too).

Overall, I think I suffered a lot through the 90's because shirts were too short and jeans cut too low, so I kept pulling my shirt down to cover my belly. I'm happier with fashion these days. I do like some of the grunge-inspired stuff that's making a comeback, but I approach it differently than I would have as a teenager back in the day.
Since you mentioned autumn colors...lately I've been feeling impatient for fall/winter to arrive. I don't know if this is because I was born in November, but I love fall and winter. Those are my favorite seasons for clothes.

I have this gorgeous dark green top that I can only wear in cooler weather and I really want some autumnal-looking stuff although we're only in the month of May.

Sounds like a hippie/bohemian look would be perfect for you! I love Sharon Tate...she is one of my style muses from the 60's.

I love many different eras in fashion as well. Like the drop-waisted dresses of the 20's with the flappers and the slinky dresses of the 30's with actresses like Jean Harlow...the polished looks of the 40's and the glamorous sophistication of the 50's...the mod look of the 60's and carefree spirit of the 70's...the wild styles of the 80's and the sexy-cool urban edge of the 90's.

I like bold floral patterns, too. If I had been around in the 60's and had money, I probably would have had a closet full of Emilio Pucci and other designers with a flair for crazy prints.

I'm actually pretty happy now because almost anything goes. i can wear flats, platforms, pumps, flares, skinny jeans, wide leg pants, one shoulder tops, strapless tops, loose tops, tight tops, halter tops, short dresses, long dresses, short shorts, bermuda shorts, shoulder pads, feather earrings... whatever! I think it's great.
