Style Over Time~

Many have tried to define "style" - it's a term difficult to snare and reduce to a simple definition...

.......what did it mean in 1942?......

in 1966?
in 1967?

again in 1966?

I think that "style" has had the same definition throughout the history of fashion.....that certain appropriateness of a combination of colour, form and proportion.... in my view, stylish clothes transcend fashion...I belive that that what was stylish 60 years ago is still that - stylish...
..sometimes, style and fashion intersect, but not always (and I think they should)...more about that in another post...
