Does Fashion Have An Age Limit?

Dear Sugar
I'm always torn when it comes to fashion. What I like and what I think I should wear are in conflict with each other. I'm 45, but have a toned, slender body (5'7", size 4 or 6). Am I too old to wear a bikini? Will I look like a 45 year old trying to look 25 if I wear a mid leg skirt, mid leg dress or shelf bra spaghetti strapped shirt? Thanks for your help!

Dear Fashion Challenged
No, I don't think that you are too old to wear anything if you look good in it! But with age comes maturity, so just make sure that you aren't wearing half shirts and micro mini's. If your boobs are a C cup or below the shelf tanks are great. But no one wants to see double d's spilling out that need a heck of a lot more support than a strip of spandex. It really just comes down to being honest with yourself. Are you a Teri Hatcher, Michelle Pfeiffer type - or are you a Kathy Bates? If your bod is like Teri's, then I say wear the bikini and the cute tank tops! She looks fabulous for her age and deserves to show it off. So should you, just choose flattering clothes if you are going to dress sexy.
