We’ve had ‘Fashion we wore by Yours Magazine’ for some time now.  It’s always a pleasure to flick through and one of those books which sits beautifully on the coffee table for guests to read through at their liking.

The book offers a great sense of nostalgia displaying fashion throughout the decades, going from the 1940’s all the way up to 2000’s, incorporating memorable public events which took place along the way too.

I particularly like the image packed pages with scrap book photographs which have so many fond memories behind them. The old photographs document women in the 1940’s wearing fashionable clothing which were rationed due to the war, brides wearing their wedding gowns in a huge variety of styles and designs and young women in their favourite bathing suites during the summer time.

Alongside the beautiful images are great stories told by the ladies featured in the photographs. Telling the tales of their favourite outfits, where they brought them from and how they’ve changed since being the young women posing for the camera many years ago.

Furthermore, the book notes ‘Style Icon’s’ throughout the decades including Grace Kelly, Bridget Bardot, Audrey Hepburn, Princess Diana and Helen Mirren reminding us of the women who inspired fashion when we were younger.

Fashion we wore is a wonderful book, one which I am certain most Yours Magazine readers will thoroughly enjoy as it celebrates fashion, style and everything British for the last 70 years- the perfect way to jog memories of the good old days.
