What makes this photo so easy on the eyes? Stylish, but not too; well tailored clothes, but simple; one outstanding detail on each, his pleats and her shoes; timeless style for both. In this day and age, we are so overloaded with "style" options from head to toe that few people these days will ever comprise a future vintage shot as lovely as this.
I love this photo, it reminds me of my mum and dad. My mum always wore skirts or dresses, even ones she sewed herself. In fact, she made a lot of our clothes as kids. And the hair! When a man wanted to look casual, he simply left off wearing his suit jacket.
I have to say that eventthoe the photograph itself does have an aura of elegance…the woman in the photograph seems a little lost, a little sloppy, a little shoddily put together…just because a photograph is "vintage" it does not automatically give the people in it elegance and the je ne sais quoi element of someone with great style….
