I thought certain clothing brands were aimed at teens and tweens, but the more I look around the more I see adults wearing these clothes. I've seen people in their 30’s and 40’s maybe even older wearing Hollister, PINK, Aeropostale, Juicy Couture, and Abercrombie & Fitch among others. I see adult men wearing mainly the Tees. When it comes to adult women I see a mix of everything from Hollister shirts to PINK pants and every teen brand in between. All of the items on these adults are generally the logo tees, bottoms, bags and so forth. Should these brands be wore only by the teens or is a tee shirt and pair of pants simply that, just a tee and pants that can be worn by anyone no matter what the age? What do you think?

I don't think anyone of any age should wear an item of clothing that makes them a walking advertisement, but I do have a thing for American Eagle graphic tees. I bought one recently featuring a black cat in a tuxedo and I think it's awesome.

MANY need to learn: just because it fits you (or you can squeeze into it) - doesn't mean you should wear it.

It’s not so much a size issue; it’s more a topic about age appropriateness and should certain brands be off limits at a certain age?

The issue is that many people want to look and feel young forever, so they dress like teenagers thinking that will do the trick. But at some point it gets ridiculous! Age appropriate doesn't necessarily mean old looking or ugly.

I think older folks wearing these brands is ridiculous. They are designed for the younger crowd. People can still look younger and modern in their dress without looking like they are trying to compete with their kids for fashion! We have different fashions for different ages for a reason...so you can be in style!

I'll be 40 this year and I wear stuff from American Eagle, Hollister, Abercrobmie, Juicy Couture and other brands that are supposedly aimed at younger people. I think that if you have the ability to pull it off, then there's nothing wrong with it.

In almost any store you can always find something age appropriate. It all depends on how you pull it all together.

Logo-ed items are generally a younger look, but many of those teeny bopper stores sell basics as well.

You do have to be mindful of picking things that suit your style, body shape, and life stage and station.


I am on my phone, please forgive the typos.
