  • I don't like them period not just on older woman. Some of them make my ears hurt just looking at them.

  • Gee..I sure hope not..LOL.. I'm nearly 50 and I still wear them when we go out.

  • No. Never buy into that "too old for stuff" idea. You can do whatever you feel comfortable with.

  • Depends on how big and dangly and what the rest of the outfit looks like ;-)
    I think there's a classy way to wear larger earrings, and then there's the way that screams "I'm 45 but am trying to look 18!"

  • I agree, if you wear a classy outfit,like a nice dress ,it will look good, not silly,but if you put on a short skirt and some boots with the earings then you will look more then just silly! I think.It looks nice when us older women can dress up.

  • Big, dangling earrings can look like too much on anyone. But if they fit the face and the outfit, I don't think the age really matters.
