Never wear pink

As you get older some colours should be avoided, especially pink. Pink is one of the worst style decisions you can make. It’s for Pink young people only. So I repeat: never ever wear pink.

Here are some other golden rules for dealing with fashion for the old.

You shrink as you get older. This is nothing to be ashamed of. In fact, it’s God’s way of giving you the lead in our own production of the movie ‘Honey, I shrunk the kids’. .

Stop telling your children they’ve grown since you last saw them. They haven’t, you’re shrinking.

Admit you’re now a size 6 not 12 and buy clothes which fit you now not then. Alternatively, only wear kaftans or bedsheets.

Don’t wear stacks or stilettoes. they may make you look taller but they’ll hurt your back.

Focus on staying clean not chic. No one cares if you no longer dress like a fashion model but your grandchildren will stay away if they think you dribble down your clothes or see you always covered in biscuit crumbs like a panko prawn.
