Discuss: How Old Is Too Old?
Feb 15, 2012
I have a lot on my mind this week, fashion-wise and otherwise, and I always find the comments on these posts so interesting, that I thought that I would post another one.
Yesterday, I was walking around the Hill and saw a significant number of women wearing patterned tights. In fact, I think I saw no fewer than five women wearing dotted tights. Some of them were young (intern age), some of them were my age (on the slippery slope to 30) and others were older than me.
Now, I don’t necessarily think that patterned tights are faux pas. Certainly, they shouldn’t make your legs look you haven’t shaved since 1992, but a pair of dotted tights or these garter belt tights could be cute. But whether you love them or loathe them, I think we can all agree that they aren’t Capitol Hill appropriate.
But the bigger question that I’m trying to resolve is: How old is too old for patterned tights? Or is age nothing but a number (ever increasing though it may be)?
