Yeah, you're probably right, I made the mistake of clicking on the "Active threads around the forum" sidebar. It just boggles me that people still trust the advice of the "experts" who give us something "So we don't get laughed at by the cool kids", who turn around a few years later to see someone wearing it, and saying "Dork!". Remember those polyester pants from the 70's? At one time, those were "In". Don't get me started on Nehru jackets. I still say that Designers get their ideas from high school girls, they would just never admit it. I'm going to go watch some Gilligan's Island reruns, I hear it's coming back in vogue.

I hate these. I’ve noticed people wearing them, girls wearing them actually and they’re really not flattering at all.

Those jeans do not look stretchy. If so, I can only imagine being encased in stiff denim from the waist on down.

Simply wear whatever supposedly makes you look "Cool" today, ten years from now, whether you're talking sunglasses, shoes, socks, or how you wear them.

The whole thing is absolutely silly, especially when we have so many other issues staring us down.
Young, attractive females look good in anything. That's then is mistaken for fashion. Grandma ruins everything!

Yep. And I would think that like most teenaged girls, most clothing "designers", who are often gay if they are male (at least per the stereotypes), are, like most teenage girls, preoccupied largely with teenaged boys with their rock-hard abs, LOL. Which explains why that somatype is most often represented in clothing ads.

But seriously, isn't "fashion" as a whole, largely illustrated by Happy's post, aimed at youth? Once you hit some age, be it thirty, forty, or older, no matter what you wear, you've become essentially invisible to younger people anyway. As long as I'm neat and clean, I don't think it matters whether I'm "fashionable" or not. Which is why, at age 62, I mostly still wear work clothes, similar to what my own Dad did when he got older. If I'm going to something "formal", like a party at a country club? Yeah, I'll dress up for that, (dress pants and a sweater of some sort) even though I gave my suitcoats to charity when I retired (I'll never wear another tie again as long as I live). But to the movies or dinner? T-shirt or pullover w/collar and a pair of Dickies workpants, LOL, and walking shoes. Who am I trying to impress if I'm comfortable in my own skin?

I am 66, and I would love for this look to carry on to seniors. I am so tired of feeling encased in a girdle from the waist down. Yes, the old Levis were stiff for the first few wearings, but after about 20 or 30 washings, they were just so comfortable!

(Also, at 66, I don't really care whether what I wear is fashionable or not. I just want to be comfortable and look at least somewhat "presentable".)

Skinny jeans aren’t flattering either on a good amount of people.
