what are you really actually too old for after about the age of 35, even if people say you aren't?
I'm turning 35 shortly and don't plan on changing my wardrobe accordingly. I think it's true that age is just a number - I think it's how old you look that matters. It's when you start to look too old to be wearing certain things rather than feeling too old that a wardrobe rethink is required.
Yes a onesie! I'm not saying I think I'm too old for those things, I'm asking because I don't know! I want to wear them - and I know people will say, just wear them if you like them etc etc, but at the end of the day I don't want to look like a twat . Or mutton! To make matters worse, I'm at university with lots of young 'uns and that's probably made me more paranoid about appearing 'muttony' iykwim.
I'm 36 and was hoping to get my first pair of ,converse soon. When I have saved up. An elderly family friend used to say that I shouldn't have long hair anymore (when I was in my 20s) but took no notice
I think you just dial it down a bit. Like my Nike sky tops are the plain suede ones and I wouldn't wear a bright biker jacket or short skirt but a dark or neutral colour is fine. Or try and do a slightly more sophisticated version of a look - again, I find that I don't wear much bright stuff any more (it's draining next to your face too).
Hanneholm, yes to the seediness of scruffy chic. I am unfortunately slightly drawn to a <cringe> ever so slightly 'rock' look, in which I think I'm channeling Kate Moss, but probably look more like Suzi Quattro.
I'm trying to stick to fairly plain, neutral colours of what's 'in'.
