What young people looked like 100 years ago

Like VK on FB:

Throughout history, people have always seen the younger generation as somehow different from their elders. We at Bright Side took an interest in this subject, and we investigated just how much young people have changed over the last 100 years. Since it’s a bit too tricky to find out about people’s personal qualities, we compared something a bit more simple, but nonetheless fascinating — young people’s appearance around the world.
We invite you to take a look at what we found — the results are fascinating!

Fashion is changing at the speed of light and most people can’t keep up with it. It is difficult both mentally and financially. But the fact still stands: if you just keep wearing your favorite clothes that are not trendy anymore, you might look 5 or even 10 years older than you actually are. This is why it’s better to learn to wear your outdated clothes in a new way and push them to their limit. We at Bright Side are sure that the clothes that used to be very popular but are not very popular today, can still look great in a modern look. And some brave girls, with the help of stylists, decided to prove this with their own examples. 1. Short down jackets
