Must-watch of the day: 100 years of fashion in 100 seconds

Jan. 21, 2014 at 3:10 PM ET

Flappers and punks, rave kids and jitterbuggers, mods and hippies — one mesmerizing compilation takes us on a mind-bending trip through fashion history.

A dance video currently going viral originally appeared in 2011 to promote the opening of Europe’s largest mall, Westfield Stratford City in the UK. Now, more than six million YouTube views later, it's continuing to dominate social feeds this week.

We’re not surprised that it’s such advertising gold. In fact, we're finding it hard to decide what’s more fascinating: the evolution of our style between 1911 and 2011 or the evolution of our dance moves. The dresses, suits and shoes here are all outstanding… and can we talk about those hats?

Watch this video enough times and you’ll want to get dressed up, grab a friend and hit the dance floor too.
