DO you still wannabe wearing mini skirts in your forties? The daughter of Victoria Beckham, 48, says no.
Ten-year-old Harper reckons the minis her mum wore during her time in the Spice Girls were “unacceptable” then, never mind now. But what other outfits should come with a best before date?

FASHION mogul Victoria Beckham has Pilates-toned pins that should be showed off, but if she doesn’t want to embarrass daughter Harper she might want to stick to midi dresses from now on.
Fellow fashion designer Donatella Versace, 67, said last year that “confidence is key when wearing a minidress, 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 thigh-high boots, too.

WHETHER on the beach in Brighton, Benidorm or Barbados you are bound to see some bloke in budgie smugglers.
Being able to pull them off is, for the most part, down to confidence.
Just look at model David Gandy, 42, in those white D&G briefs. But singer Rod Stewart is 77, and his smalls look more like a string bikini. Put it away.

JEREMY Clarkson, 62, would be the first to admit he is no style icon.
But the TV host and farmer has previously said he has “a suit for funerals and jeans for everything else”.
Older gentlemen should steer clear of elasticated denim, as far as I’m concerned.

THE Hawaiian shirt is synonymous with two types of men – twentysomething Love Island lads or mid-life blokes on holiday.
While the youth of today wear theirs undone or with matching shorts, they should look to the likes of actor Geoff Goldblum, 69.

LOUNGWEAR was a staple of the pandemic and Adam Sandler’s obsession with the look was coined Sandlercore.
The 55-year-old actor was even named last year’s top stylish star, according to Google, thanks to his love of oversized hoodies and joggers.
But I suggest you bin grubby loungies by your 30s.

WE all hoped football was coming home as England played in the Euros last year – and many of us slipped on our shirts as a sign of loyalty.
But one man who didn’t look great in his three lions top was Boris Johnson, 58.
In a half-hearted attempt to look the part, the Prime Minister pulled his England kit on over a still visible shirt and tie. Maybe we should leave footie strips to kids and true sports fans.
Retire teeny tops when you hurtle towards your 40s
UNLESS you still look in your twenties like BGT judge Amanda Holden, 51, it is time to put your midriff away.
Retire teeny tops when you hurtle towards your 40s and leave the revealing – and often unflattering – trend to the Love Islanders.

But etiquette expert William Hason says: “Most women over the age of 50 don’t look as good as younger people in bikinis. Their skin has lost its suppleness.”

The spindly heels should come with a caution, no matter if you are heading to the school disco or local bingo hall. But if you see 60 in the rearview mirror, stick to flats.
