Anna Wintour, Vogue editor-in-chief. Her Prince Valiant bob in her signature look, and at her age, it looks ridiculous.

When every hair has to be the same length and in place it gives a rigid appearance. I agree. Ms. Wintour's hair could use some modern day tousling.

On the flip side, at her age she can wear it the way she wants. Isn't that what this is about? At a certain age you don't have to answer to anyone what you wear.

If you want to wear a poodle skirt with a Christmas sweater and high healed sneaker, with you hair in a behive, go for it!


oh, and white socks and white belt.

Sure you can but the caption of the thread reads, 'These look good on mature women'.

There is a reasonable middle ground in all this. I have never been one to be much concerned about fashion and its latest trends (perhaps easier for a man), but neither am I completely oblivious to the situation that I am getting dressed for. I do not wish to stick out like a huge sore thumb, such as the female acquaintance of poster TheShadow. I am not going to wear a tuxedo where shorts and a T-shirt would be appropriate, or vice-versa.

While I acknowledge everyone's freedom to dress as they please (except in many workplace situations), I find it difficult to understand why anyone would wish to stick out as being ultra weird. And I have to wonder in those cases if it is the desire for the particular style of dress which drives people or the desire (whether conscious or not) to stick out.

Guessing they (consciously or unconsciously) want or like to be the center of attention.
