I’m a fashion expert – here are the exact ages you should drop some of your favorite clothes

Do you still want to wear miniskirts in your 40s? Victoria Beckham’s daughter, 48, says no.

Harper, 10, says the minis her mom wore when she was in the Spice Girls were “unacceptable” back then, never mind now. But what other outfits should have an expiration date?

If Victoria Beckham doesn't want to embarrass daughter Harper, she might as well stick to midi dresses from now on

Fashion editor Clemmie Fieldsend recommends the age at which you should ditch some popular styles.

FASHION mogul Victoria Beckham has Pilates-tone pins that should be shown, but unless she wants to embarrass daughter Harper, she should stick to midi dresses from now on.

Fashion designer Donatella Versace, 67, said last year that “confidence is the key to wearing a mini dress, regardless of body shape or our position in society.”

I’m sure Harper would have a thing or two to say about those Kermit green over-the-knee boots, too.

Budgie Smugglers: NEVER AFTER 40

Being able to pull them off comes down to confidence

WHETHER it’s on the beach in Brighton, Benidorm or Barbados, you’re bound to see a budgie smuggler or two.

Being able to pull them off depends in large part on confidence.

Just look at model David Gandy, 42, in these white D&G briefs. But singer Rod Stewart is 77 and his briefs look more like a string bikini. put it away

JEREMY Clarkson, 62, would be the first to admit he’s not a style icon.

But the TV presenter and farmer has previously said he has “a suit for funerals and jeans for everything else”.

In my opinion, older men should avoid elasticated denim.

Hawaiian shirts: NEVER AFTER 40

Unless you're a stylish silver fox like Geoff, by the time you're 40 you should hang up yours for good

THE Hawaiian shirt is synonymous with two types of men – Love Island boys in their 20s or midlife guys on vacation.

While today’s youth wear them open or with matching shorts, they should turn to actors like Geoff Goldblum, 69.

Unless you’re a stylish silver fox like Geoff, by the time you’re 40 you should hang up yours for good.

Training pants: NEVER AFTER 30

I suggest that by your 30s you ditch dingy lounges

LOUNGWEAR has been an integral part of the pandemic and Adam Sandler’s obsession with the look has been dubbed Sandlercore.

The 55-year-old actor was even named last year’s top styling star, according to Google, thanks to his penchant for oversized hoodies and sweatpants.

But I suggest that by your 30s you ditch dingy lounges.

Football Shirts: NEVER AFTER 20

We should leave football boots to kids and real sports fans

WE all hoped football would come home when England played last year’s Euro – and many of us slipped on our shirts as a show of loyalty.

But one man who didn’t look good in his Three Lions top was Boris Johnson, 58.

In a half-hearted attempt to play the role, the Prime Minister pulled his England shirt over a shirt and tie that was still visible. Maybe we should leave football strips to kids and real sports fans.

Crop tops: NEVER AFTER 35

Shed teeny tops as you head into your 40s

UNLESS you’re still in your 20s looking like BGT judge Amanda Holden, 51, it’s time to put your guts away.

Ditch teen tops as you head into 40 and leave the revealing — and often unflattering — trend to the Love Islanders.

Bikinis: NEVER AFTER 50

Etiquette expert William Hason says:

ACTRESS Brooke Shields, 57, looked incredible in this plaid two-piece last year.

But etiquette expert William Hason says, “Most women over 50 don’t look as good in bikinis as younger people do. Her skin has lost its suppleness.”

Heels: NEVER AFTER 60

If you see 60 in the rearview mirror, stay with apartments

ACTRESS Sharon Stone, 64, is determined to keep wearing her towering heels.

She tackled the famous red steps at the Cannes Film Festival in this pair of green stiletto heels, while younger stars including Kristen Stewart, 32, took off theirs to avoid an accident.

Those skinny heels should be taken with a pinch of salt, whether you’re headed to the school disco or the local bingo hall. But if you see 60 in the rearview mirror, stick to flats.

Lederhosen: NEVER AFTER 60

MAMAGER Kris Jenner is trying her best to keep up with her trend-setting daughters, who are fans of PVC and faux leather.

And luckily for Kris, 66, she can make lederhosen look good at any age.

While her daughter Kim, 41, opts for second-skin styles that show off her famous curves, the Kardashian clan manager prefers straighter and looser cuts that are much more forgiving.

However, she will still need some talc to pull them off.
