I don’t believe in fashion rules. Fashion is too subjective for the generalizing that comes with rule-making. We may all be exposed to current trends and shop at similar stores but fashion is an expression of one’s singular style. A woman’s fashion sense, body type, personality and lifestyle all impact the type of clothes she wears. We’re all too different for fashion rules to apply to everyone.
That’s why it was distressing to see people chide Jada Pinkett-Smith for posing in a bikini for a Facebook picture. The caption read ” To my Forty and over crew! Don’t believe the hype…we DO get better with age! ” and small minds immediately took to the comment section to chide her for wearing a bikini over 40.
