Results of a survey of u3a members and of the general public reveal that two-thirds of older people say they feel they’re expected to wear certain clothes by society and over half of the wider public admit they think older people should dress their age and should stop wearing miniskirts at 44 years old, skinny jeans at 49 and baseball caps at 56.

Personally I do not like to see people in baseball caps at any age!!!

Recently, a survey was conducted looking at the topic of the fashionable clothing – or otherwise! – of the over 60s. Click here for more results from the survey report.
