Clothes should be comfortable and clean; anything else is at the wearer's discretion.
Ha! No, I don't. In fact, because I'm short I think they help to make my legs look longer. Boot cut are terrible on me - I look stumpy.

What Not to Wear After Age 50: The Final Say*|*Michelle Combs
Women have to bear burdens that us men cannot even comprehend. Having babies (and doing most of the raising them in most cases), menstrual cycles, the barrage of marketed images of what women "should" look like, not to mention putting up with us men throughout their entire life.

They are entitled to wear what they want, when they want, and how they want. End of Story.

The more I see of makeup on older (65+) women the more fake it looks to me. A good friend, age 80 and enviously beautiful, showed up at coffee last week with eyeliner on. She never wore it before and she looked so self-conscious with it, plus it was applied with a slightly shaky hand. I need eyeliner and have worn it 24/7 since age 16, so I don't look as good without it but some women really ought to have more confidence in their good looks and forget the makeup, other than powder. My older sister wears a ton of makeup and bleached hair on top of a fake tan, a triple whammy.

I've never understood that 'her/your age' bit at all.
Sounds to me like a combination of pointless 'rules' from many generations ago, and people who resent not looking as good as the person they're talking about.

I dunno, I would have carried a sundress to slip over the outfit for wearing into restaurants etc.

But then again I never really got into the skimpy clothes for biking look. I don't bike fast enough to worry about aerodynamics.
