Not too easy. Not too difficult.
If you're a student who is interested in fashion and how it has changed over time, this class will definitely interest you. The professor makes class fun and her sense of style is always interesting. The class itself was also very insightful. Seeing how fashion has changed throughout the 20th century caught my attention, as well as seeing how old fashion trends are being implemented into the 21st century. Although there notes and memorization were needed for this class, it was one of my favorite classes that I've taken at the University of Delaware. I highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in fashion.
This course taught me a lot about the trends in fashion throughout the 20th century. Starting with the 1900s, it was interesting to see how the lengths of dresses and skirts, as well as the tightness of shirts changed throughout the decades. I loved learning about how fashion is cyclical and that trends in the past have been revolutionized to fit the present. I really enjoyed my time in this class. The professor would bring in old articles of clothing from different decades which was really interesting and helped make it easier to understand the material.

Advice for students:
My advice to students considering this course would be to take it if you're interested in fashion. This isn't a course that you can slack off and get an A; it requires time and energy. The material is not difficult, but it is important that you pay attention in class. The textbook was very helpful in helping me succeed in this class. Online quizzes are assigned which can help boost your grade, but be mindful of what the question is asking for some of them could be tricky. Participate in class because the professor factors participation and attendance into your grade. Finally, I would say if you are going to take this class, pay attention to detail to help distinguish which clothing went with which decade.
