That strapless romper doesn't work on anyone over 12. Yech.

I am 70 and have never worn a strapless romper and never will! I stick to classic casual. Well fitting jeans, a nice tee or shirt with a classic style jacket or sweater.

Any hipster hats. Like Snapbacks, fitted caps, that Taylor Swift boho hat, fedoras...
Those are things we expect to see on teens and young adults. Not middle-aged parents and senior citizens.

Women use common sense, wear clothes that are flattering.

I'm embarrassed for some women that are middle age and older that only shop in the juniors dept. they look silly. Perhaps wearing one item from juniors once in awhile but constantly dressing like that doesn't make a woman look younger.

People should not be age racists. Let them wear what they are used to. Clothes are like another skin, cannot get rid of it just because of getting more age.

I'm over 50.

I dress for whatever I'm doing in a way that is flattering and modest. My clothes fit and aren't see-through. There will be no glimpses of my bra straps or panties. I generally wear walking shorts (longer shorts that hit slightly above the knee) and a tee shirt when I'm working outside, no short shorts or halters.

I don't care what other people do, but I don't want to look like I'm trying to be young or show off too much skin.

At the age of 50 must be spit on the opinions of others.

I am 52. When I was younger (20s, 30s) I was very concerned about how I looked, so I tried to always dress nicely. I wore makeup (not a lot, but some), nail polish, wore nice jeans and sweaters. Now that I'm older, I realize that people aren't shallow enough to judge me by what I wear. Besides, they are probably too busy thinking about their own lives to be concerned about how I look.

So now I wear what I want: comfortable jeans. Not tight ones, but ones I can move in. On the hot days of summer, I wear athletic shorts that hit a few inches above my knees. And t-shirts - comfortable ones (not the fitted shirts). I always wear hiking shoes.

That's it - I am not the clothes horse that I was when I was younger. I wear the same clothes everywhere, including to church on Sunday and when I am with friends/family. I have a nice pair of slacks that I use for dress up occasions, which thankfully aren't very often.

A woman at the gym wears bra tops and booty shorts, like she is trying to compete with the 20 year olds. It just looks. . . used up.

There are lots of great looking things you can wear to the gym that will flatter an older but fit figure.
