Do you ever get the feeling that people are not as stylish and glamorous today as they were in the past? Many of us had this thought pass through our minds when watching a period drama or even when looking through old family photos. It could be that people put more effort into their appearance back then, or it could be the fact that taking a picture was a much rarer occurrence than today, so everyone made sure they looked their best when it happened.

The photos below were shared online by people who just had to show the world how dashing their grandparents looked, and they are certainly right. We could definitely learn a thing or two from previous generations when it comes to style!
