9 Lessons From Our Grandparents On Living Stylishly (PHOTOS)

(Except in the late '70s and the '80s. They just had more "personality.") Clothes were made better. Housing was affordable. People regularly went out to go dancing. But that's the tip of the glamourous iceberg. Here are a few more lessons our grandparents can teach us on living with maximum style.
