It was Ivan Turgenev, a Russian novelist, who spoke out widely about the generation gap issue. Things haven’t changed much since then. Moreover, once technical progress got on the path of rapid development, people with a mere 2-year-difference in age seem to be living in different worlds. For example, try showing a tape-recorder cassette to a modern teenager and ask them what it is. All you’ll be left to do is watch them make effortless guesses.

Bright Side is going to prove to you that sometimes it’s not a small gap but rather, a real abyss between people born with a couple of decades between them.

Beware: our editorial doesn’t bear responsibility if you suddenly start to feel really old.

Every generation has its own stylish carelessness to their looks.
