Fashion tips for the elderly.



Many of us ‘Old Folks’ (over 50) are quite confused today about how we should present ourselves. Feeling ‘young’, we try to conform to current fashions and present a youthful image.

Contrary to what you may have seen on the streets, the following combinations DO NOT go together and should be avoided:

1. A nose ring and bifocals

2. Spiked hair and bald spots

3. A pierced tongue and dentures

4. Miniskirts and support hose

5. Ankle bracelets and corn pads

6. Speedo’s and cellulite

7. A belly button ring and a gall bladder surgery scar

8. Unbuttoned disco shirts and a heart monitor

9. Midriff shirts and a midriff bulge

10. Bikinis and liver spots

11. Miniskirts and varicose veins

And, most importantly

At some point you have to give up the ‘DAISY DUKE’ shorts.

  1. Haha! Good advice Harry!! 😄

  2. Reblogged this on Chris The Story Reading Ape's New (to me) Authors Blog and commented:
    For those of a ‘certain age’ – and those who still have all this to look forward to in the years to come 😀

  3. This has to be the most hilarious advice…but very true. Nothing so special as looking your age! But there are fashions for people over 50. Wish I could post a photo of Helen Mirran who always looks gorgeous.
    Best Wishes, Nina

  4. Thank you, she is lovely.

  5. I was looking at a photo of Cheryl Tiegs and thinking, no way! Then I recalled what she looked like years ago. When you are starting out looking that good when you are young, your chances are better when you are old. Some of us were just destined not to go there.

  6. That was indeed the most important rule of all!

  7. lucky for me I dont have varicose veins, I loved these nice one 😉

  8. I’ll keep wearing my purple dress and red hat. Has to be better than Daisy Dukes (I doubt I’d have got away with them when I was a teenager, never mind now!) Thank you for the laugh

  9. If you ask me and you asked us, no one looks good in those type of shorts, old or otherwise! Can you even call them shorts? More like dental floss…

    Unfortuantely it isn’t just the “Old Folks” who need reminding of this one!
