Looking Cool Uptown

One of the things that I love about advanced style is the fact that older people can be unaware that they are actually really hip. It’s this lack of self consciousness, this accidental stylishness that is often so appealing. Obviously much of this due to the fact that fashion and accessories style is often times recycled from vintage designs. Where young can over do it with their hipster styles(myself included), these looks are worn with cool confidence, by their original wearers. When I complimented this lady on her sunglasses she replied, “They are not fancy or expensive, in fact they are old.”
