What is taste and fashion?

#Retired Bloke Quote

“The same costume will be

Indecent … 10 years before its time

Shameless … 5 years before its time

Outre … 1 year before its time


Dowdy … 1 year after its time

Hideous … 10 years after its time

Ridiculous … 20 years after its time

Amusing … 30 years after its time

Quaint … 50 years after its time

Charming … 70 years after its time

Romantic … 100 years after its time

Beautiful … 150 years after its time”

James Laver 1899-1975

British fashion writer

Taste and Fashion (1937)
