Dressing your age.....

What exactly does this mean? I hear people talking all the time about someone who dresses too young for their age. But if you turn on the television you see it all over. Especially TV moms. I am watching an old rerun of Still Standing and judging from the age of their kids, I would assume the parents on this show are in their late thirties. And Judy, the mom (Jami Gertz), dresses in the same clothes as her teenage daughter. In this particular episode she has a fitted T-shirt with a fuzzy applique of Oscar the Grouch on the front of it. Personally, I think age is a just a number and you are only as old as you feel, blah blah blah. What is wrong with her wearing an Oscar T-shirt? And who determines when you are too old to wear an Oscar T-shirt? I want to see a break-down of what to wear at different stages of my life.

It means conforming to other people's viewpoints. Pah! If I see a shirt I like, I really don't care if it's for teens. If it fits me, I'll wear it. I've never been a mom to wear the same clothes as my daughter (those are WAY too tight for me to consider!), but she's been getting into getting us the same clothes lately. So we match. ??? Most of them are ok. If I had a break down of what to wear, I'd make sure to NOT wear them. I can be kind of rebellious... I'm sure you've never noticed.

I am trying to lose weight so that I can dress younger. I do find that my own mother dresses to young for her age. Little shorts and babydoll shirts and she is 55 years old. I just want to be able to put on a pair of jeans.

Hi there, I don't think it's age that is the most important thing. I think people should dress in clothes which suit and complement them. In addition, everyone should feel comfortable and confident in the clothes they wear
