Proof That “Age Appropriate” Clothing Is A Really Dumb Hoax

Confession time: I’m occasionally paralyzed by the “age appropriate clothing” myth. You see, it’s the generation I hail from. I’m 52, and grew up in the 1980s when such dumb ideas were prevalent.

However, to my credit, I’ve continuously bucked the myth. I’m not a fashionista (and am wholly and famously uninterested in fashion), but I have no qualms about wearing my silly t-shirts that make even my adult children groan.

Also, I was wearing mini-skirts in my 40s when I was still doing a little partying. And I don’t have a model’s body. I just FELT hot, so I did what I wanted. Devil may care.

Anywho, I found these awesome ladies on Instagram (and other places on the internet) and love LOVE love their looks. So seriously, f*ck “age appropriate” clothing. Wear what you want. You’re beautiful. And sexy. If you believe you are.
