Is it appropriate for an older woman to wear a jean mini skirt with a couple little tears that her granddaughter gave her, if she was wearing them when she was her granddaughter's age? Are women expected to change their styles as they age? Can a 58 year old wear a pear of combat boots with a suitable dress. My niece just gave me a pair of combat boots. It seems this younger generation don't see me as too old to be like them, not saying i'm not a lot wiser, a sage even, and a hippie. I'm just observing...nothing else to do.cool

Right now i feel like Frankie from Grace and Frankie, but she was from an earlier era and is all hippy. Hippy wasn't my era but I still like some hippy things and ways. i like Bohemian. I just like being versatile.gift

If Lady Gaga can wear a flank steak dress with matching hand bag, cap and shoes, you can wear those. Gives a new meaning to "My Aunt wears combat boots."

That's gross, i guess she's not vegan. I might try the combat boots but probably not the mini skirt...i just took it for memories. i don't wear mini skirts anymore. i have never been high maintenance, but some maintenance would be nice...shopping for different styles, and botox, i would like to try some botox.

Yes, But Not Exactly That!
I Think,you Should Match Things Up!
With Colors that Will Suit YouFace!

AlsoThings Appropriately to Your Body Shape!
And Making Sure You Look Great When You Look Your Self In a Full Mirror!
You Could Be Older, But Looking Younger!


I Never Did wear Too Short Minis!
I Thing We Should Left Something to The Imagination!
No Too Short Minis Are Okey, If You Have Great Legs!
Age Is Not Matter If You Look Great!
Thank you

I agree with that falatia, but the.

term mutton dressed as lamb comes to mind

I know many women who can carry off a look, and are absolutely beautiful at 55 to 60 and beyond.
But there are women who let themselves go, and don't pay attention to their appearance, they cannot carry any look and complain they do not get attention,

Give me a lovely well dressed 55-year old who looks after her body and I will give her my undivided attention.
One of the problems on the internet is you cannot see how a woman moves and conducts herself, you cannot see her personality,

Make an effort woman and you will be rewarded.heart beating bouquet

One aspect is a style you find attractive. No way you will catch me in torn jeans unless I am cleaning the barn. Even then...no protection from dirt. And if they think I am paying $50-100 for them...they are nuts. Older wiser. Another thing is look in the mirror truthfully. Wrinkled knees? Lumpy calves? Cellulite thighs. NO minis!! Saggy butt? No thong bikinis or short short shorts. Boobs to navel, pushup bra or no show!
Be realistic. If you cringe viewing it, then have self respect and cover it.
I don't care what age one is. No one finds a 400 pound slob in a halter and wedged shorts something good to view. As far as styles go..I still wear bell bottoms and platforms. Skirts only with pantyhose. I have pride. Wild is one thing. Repulsive another.
Mom always said no idea why women want to show their knees. She deemed them the ugliest part of a persons legs. And she was right. There are some who have OK knees. And those who's knees are knobby, lumpy, or bony. A weather gal on TV looks so much nicer when her skirts are at the knee or a bit below. Oherwise, I find myself watching her fat knees.laugh roll eyes

I have seen many older woman in mini skirts and clothes I would love to wear but do not flatter me. The trick to dressing is to be comfortable in what you are wearing. Otherwise don't go out that door. My dress is like my life very eclectic. I also am usually a modest dresser. But that is what I am comfortable in. Why don't you put the skirt on and go out for about an hour and see how you feel? I don't care what you are doing dressing should be fun. wave If my grand daughter gave me something to wear I would most likely wear it and even take her to lunch in it. What a blessing she loves you enough to share with you. gift What is a few moments out of my norm to see her smile.

Not appropriate but I feel the same about a 40 year old man in a baseball cap unless he's off to play a friendly game of baseball which I'd suspect he isn't. In this country we have baseball caps and baseball bats, but there is no baseball. Sport is not the reason for all this sportswear, particularly at that age.

Sportswear is for sport is pretty old school but I can't take middle aged man seriously if he's wearing a basketball shirt. A man who dresses for the gym everywhere.

And from about 25 onwards you'd never catch me in my vintage Olympic tracksuit from the Soviet Union. Not only has the prospect of Stalinism become too real to joke about it is simply more grown up to dress less like a political statement.
