At what age do you give up on fashion trends?



I know there are age appropriate trends but I'm not talking about those because clearly everyone won't be doing it. However, I see some people say they would wear something if they had the figure for it. I'm curious about when it's time to say no, not for women my age.



I've seen some grandmothers with bodies like young women and they will be wearing something that I think would be better on someone younger. Granted you can be a 31 year old grandmother you could possibly get away with some of the stuff. Not all grandmothers are that young and I think some just look silly.

Well, the clothes should be able to flatter or compliment your figure, whether a person dresses conservatively or casually or what have you.  If you walk around wearing a "fitted" tank top and your "back boobs" are hanging out or you dress like "thepeopleofwalmart.com",then you better hope you don't get called out.

Well, I'm 33 and a mom.  I've pretty much put party shirts (backless, plunging neckline, tummy showing type of stuff) away.  Most you'll get out of me now is cleavage. 

I no longer have the feet to support dancing all night in super high heels because "my song" keeps coming on.  I used to end up limping to my car at the end of the night, now the limp starts 3 songs in.

I no longer wobble to the bottom, who knows if I'll be able to wobble back to the top.

Anything I wear must be able to cover up a super control bra and possibly spanks.  

You will never EVER catch me in crochet draws.  Neva.

Some trends I have just found ridiculous because they are, regardless of my age. If it doesn't flatter my figure or makes me look ridiculous, I ain't wearin it.

To me its not about "age" I see some so called 20yo's should not wear what they have on! I think all women big&small should wear something that compliments their figure not their best friend! And be happy whatever size you are!

Why? And don't let me catch you in some crochet draws. Oh and don't say you still getting it in dancing all night in heels. Your mama card will be revoked.

YES I would be jealous because I'd only be able to walk.
