One of the things I noticed abroad was that older people were better dressed than younger folks. The difference was really striking in Prague. It wasn’t unusual to see women with matching shoes and handbags. Some wore coats that matched their hair. The effect was dramatic; I wish I’d been forthright enough to ask to take their photos but again, it was often on the trams, a difficult location to shoot anyway.
Via Boing Boing, I find Advanced Style. With Sartorialist type delivery, it shows nicely dressed older folks. Past the age of having to prove anything and with palpable confidence, they’re comfortable in their own skin.
Laugh all you like, I’m quite fond of this lady’s photo.
