Make It Or Break It: Dressing Your Age!

Labels: , , , , , , ,


This week's "Make It Or Break It" topic is dressing your age. This may be slightly controversial, I know, because who is to say what outfits are appropriate for what age groups? Let's take a look at the poll, shall we?


Now, I think that if you've got it you should flaunt it... to an extent. Mariah Carey, although she is a superstar celebrity, does not need to go on stage in a sparkling bra and tight low-rise capris. It's just not classy to look trashy, obviously. She can afford the best of everything, so why look like you belong on a street corner? Lately she has upped her ante, but I think that the inappropriate tendencies still come through. Every shirt is midriff bearing and every bottom is skin tight. Oh well.

Mariah isn't the only one guilty of this faux pas, Teri Hatcher is often caught wearing see-through outfits fit for a twenty-something year old as well. Tara Reid is 32 and is walking around dressing like a sorority girl. I really am a strong advocate of everyone wearing what they want... but in this instance I think that sometimes celebrities make bad choices. Not necessarily because they look too young, but because the clothes are ugly and tacky looking when they could instead be classy and sophisticated.

However, on the opposite side of the spectrum, we have Mary-Kate Olsen. Here, she looks absolutely frightful, from the bleach graying blond hair to the pale as a ghost skin, grandma's favorite mink, and wash-me-out gold rag. I just don't get it. You are young, beautiful, rich and vibrant! Why would you want to look like you are pushing 90? I guess she is taking a page out of Katie Holmes' book here.

I think in this case, its not so much looking your age, but looking good and appropriate for your age. If Mariah wore a real shirt and Mary-Kate put on some bronzer, these faux pas could have been avoided, at least slightly. By all means, wear what you feel comfortable in... but keep in mind that certain styles cater to a younger or older crowd for a reason!

Yeah, I don't know what she is thinking there. Why is it so hard for her to cover up!
