Why should anyone in their 50's dress any different to someone in their 30's? In truth they shouldn't.

We all see the hashtag of the perfect couples chinking champagne flutes on the veranda overlooking the perfect sunset, #couplegoals. Surely there's more to life than trying to outdo our neighbours with staged aspiration? And since when did the zenith for couples become sharing a daiquiri in a beach hut somewhere off the Maldives?
Between hitting the pads, swinging idly in the hammocks on Whitsunday Island, I've had plenty of time to catch up on some fashion history.
