Crop tops and micro minis are out.
No matter how good your thighs or midriff are, it just looks silly to bare it after 50.
This past July, while in NYC and battling the 105 degree temperatures, I sported a
James Pearse ruched skirt that tends to ride up as you walk.
My 16 year old gave me a very disapproving look.
I asked her if I had cellulite and vainly checked myself out in a nearby window.
“No,” she answered, “you have toned legs, but you shouldn’t be dressed like a teenager.”
I immediately adjusted the waistband to a lower position and with each stop light, I had to yank it back into place. Yes, I became self conscious, but I knew that she was correct.
