According to a recent and obviously very controversial study, I should have stopped wearing jeans 12 years ago!
British courier service, CollectPlus, put together a survey that revealed that by age 53, people should stop wearing their denims. Even Catherine Woolfe, Marketing Director at CollectPlus, was startled by the results. “It’s surprising to see our research reveals that many people think jeans are the reserve of the younger generation,” she said.
My initial response to the news was astonishment! Jeans are an absolute staple of my wardrobe and I can’t ever imagine the day coming when I would stop wearing them.
I’m definitely not the only one! Here’s Susan Street from Susanafter60 in hers,
Jennifer Connolly of A Well Styled Life wearing hers,
and Alyson Walsh of That’s Not My Age wearing her jeans.
All three fashion bloggers are over the age of 53 and I think they look darn good!
So why does CollectPlus suggest that we should stop wearing jeans at 53? Apparently, the stress that people experience while shopping for jeans becomes too intense for us by that age! Really? That’s the best they could come up with? What does a parcel delivery service know about fashion anyway? Or about conducting valid research?
What do you think? Are jeans one of your wardrobe essentials? At what age would you stop wearing them?
