Trends evolve decade by decade. And in times of social media, it’s so easy to share a snapshot of the moment on Instagram and let the world know about our great taste for style. But, not long ago, our parents, without a smartphone, showed us that style has many ways of expressing itself and it is all about confidence.

We at Bright Side searched for those old-school pictures of our past to prove style has no age. And if our grandparents had an Instagram in their day this is what it might look like.
