Americans tend to dress for comfort. It appears to be a trend which accelerated with the “Baby Boomers”. Women shed gloves and hats for all but the most formal of occasions. Men added colors and patterns to their shirts. And almost everyone wears sneakers and sandals instead of Oxfords and heels.
A few styles never change. Black and white, for example, are two colors which are acceptable for almost every event.
Take these two creatures, for example. Basic color scheme. Last minute adjustment of a wayward feather — and they’re set to welcome you to the most elegant of seafood restaurants.
