Swag iz just dat 59 fifty caps and dem sick airtops/kreps.
But then again the "classy dresses" for people around my age (16) is just any item of clothing from these designers:
Abercrombie & Fitch
Hollister & Co.
(The kids who wear them always have some hawt girl around their arms and are at a party with either a fag or sodapop at hand *facepalm*).
And that isn't what I regard as classy.
So I'll take nothing from our age, and I'll go with you: I love the original class down in the 50's where I can actually order some nice cognac and listen to some great & original music (maybe a cigar to top the look lol).
Really does beat wearing fresh nikies & listening to rappers talk about how much "Don P" they shove down their throats.
^ Dat 19fiddies look was the real class! Now just old men dress like that T.T

There are people out there who embrace many of the more positive time of the 50s, myself being one of them.
I'm sort of rockabilly, which takes its fashions from 50s to early 60s, I buy and wear vintage and vintage reproduction. I also dip into the 40s. I have a large circle of friends and acquaintances who are also into it, there's a whole scene most people don't even know about.
When I go out I go to clubs where they play old school rock 'n roll and rockabilly, I jive with men who know how to lead and who dress impeccably. I go to weekenders where everyone is into it and that's full time, it's amazing being amongst hundreds of people who know how to "set" their hair, wear red lipstick and use Brylcream!
Occasionally I'll go to a 40s night where everyone swing dances (I've not learned yet) and again, everyone is dressed beautifully.
I love it, getting involved is the best decision I ever made. I have friends who have reproduction clothing companies, vintage traders, vintage hair and make-up artists, boudoir photographers, burlesque artists, pin-up models............
I'm even going on a first date with someone where we shall go to a fabulous tea shop, drink Assam from a pot and eat scones.
I also have friends who aren't into it so I don't have to isolate myself to be involved and enjoy it. I do occasionally go to regular bars and clubs but it's never quite the same.
So it's out there, you just have to know where to look

I don't see why you would want to be the same as everyone else. As it is, you wear those clothes and enjoy those activities purely because you do, not because it's the norm. Would you rather be a 1-of-a-kind or 10-a-penny?
To mention Starbucks is quite laughable, though, when you consider the demographic - white, middle-class, pretentious and pseudo-liberal. These people don't have the morals you seek. They may replicate them, but they don't possess them.
Plus, who wants to go backwards? The whole point is that we, as a species, move forward. Yes, trends come and go. That's life.
