Yes, I thought it was good.  The article kind of takes you by surprise with that title!  I thought it was going to be another one of those articles telling me to wear longer skirts & orthopedic shoes.  :grin:

Yes that was a great article! There are far too many utterly depressing articles about how we shouldn't wear this, shouldn't wear that and all. I swear, such articles are often a plot to make middle-aged and up women disappear into the background somehow. Beyond common sense, and taking into consideration one's own body, wear whatever makes you feel and look great!:) However, there are some folks, like Simon Doonan, for example, who encourage women to become more distinctive with age. I must say, I'm in agreement with him, since I have the artistic bent to styling anyway. No way am I just going to cave to "tasteful all-neutrals" or excessively plain clothes. I need color, and some interesting detail, as well as good cut!:)

Good article.  You should wear what suits your shape, your personality and your  life style, regardless of your age. As for the ‘things you should never wear’,   I would add another item to the list: a frown. Very unflattering at any age!
