After the clearout...
Does anyone actually take note of all this advice? In my time, skirts have gone up, down and midway. Trousers have gone in, out (flares, then. How my children howled with laughter at pictures of me wearing those; until, that is, they came back in as "boot cut". Boot cut were apparently okay) and cropped. Knickers have got smaller and smaller, until they reached the tortuous-looking thong (don't ask*), plus there are the naughty crotchless ones, which sound lazy and draughty.
And then there's the face. Now, apparently, Big Brows are in, and models are photograped with what look like two enormous black artoropods cawling towards each other across their brows.
None of this advice seems to be directed at people like me (Older Women); we are the lost, the forgotten, the ignored. I wasn't going to take any advice anyway, but an offer would have been nice.
(PS the girl in the photo isn't me)
*okay, if you insist. No.
