Default What outdated fashion should people you know give up?

I have this senior neighbor (man) who always wears light blue trousers with a white belt. The polyester kind that were popular in the 60s or 70s.

I also have a coworker that wears leggings but she's in her 50s and they look like the kind of leggings that were popular in the 80s.

What outdated fashions do you think people you know should give up?

OMG this one friend I used to have. Who was 47 at them time that was two years ago. She said she was going to lose weight to get into this dress. It was some ugly dress that she wore back in high school it was blue, lacy and frilling. It was she had no fashion sense back then and still dont. I told her to burn the old lady dress.

I've got a neighbor who still wears blouses with shoulder pads.

Football shoulders only look good on NFL players.......

Headbands (worn across the forehead). It never ceases to catch my attention when I see a girl wearing one. Sweetheart - do NOT be channeling Janis Joplin. The time for headbands has long since passed. By about 30-40 years.

A lady I know who is easily in her late 50's or early 60's needs to seriously stop wearing miniskirts to church.

They'll come back at some point. Just wait and see. Now, they look pretty rednecky.
