Here are some ideas that will help you create a beautiful and fashionable style that can also make you feel fabulous in your 40s and beyond. So, read on for more info!

  2. God doesn’t care how you dress. So why should I care about some so called expert’s opinion?

    P.S. I look GOOOD in anything. Thank God. Amen.

  3. I agree with Liz — at 84, I am not looking for a job, nor trying to establish styling trends. I wear velcro sneakers because I have trouble bending down to tie shoes, and they fit and support my feet. If I want to wear a veteran’s Tee, I wear it; same with logo shirts for my college and my NFL team, and my aerobatics organization. There is a vet tleelll that says, among other things, “if my patriotism offends you, I DON’T CARE.” Same forf my “fashion” choices…

  4. This is mostly B S I am 80 look 60 feel 50….I wear spots jerseys to support my team and show I am not an antique. I still wear my school ring and am approached by other identifying with it. I wear a smile because I like what I wear and think I look good. Age has little to do with it. I don’t wear mini skirts because my legs are no longer firm but my butt is so I wear skinny jeans…trying to tell others how to dress is like putting lipstick on a pig…it makes you look ridiculous and the pig won’t like it!

  5. Let me tell you people something. I was born and raise on a farm down in Georgia. Ripped jeans is not a fashion. The hard work put the holes in my jeans. This is nothing new to me. Hard work put the holes in the people jeans down south and now you trying to make a fashion statement out of it. I think anybody or any age can wear these jeans. You pay all this money for holes in jeans when people down south holes come from natural hard work. This is nothing new to the people that work on farms down south. So I think it doesn’t matter what age you is. At lease our holes are natural holes.


  6. God does care how we dress, he made clothes with a purpose! however the way we see are self should relfect from the inside out!

  7. God does care about how we dress! clothes are made with a purpose,however your image of what you wear should come from the inside out.

  8. I also agree with the former comments. I am the expert of my own body and the clothes I put on it. I am in my seventies and believe I have lived long enough to do what I want and wear what I want. This is only someone’s opinion. I have my own opinions and don’t need someone telling me what to wear. I have logo shirts also and wear them when I feel like it. People need to be comfortable. Besides all that, I don’t agree with age discrimination which this is a form of.
