Over 50 dress code

For any of those others that bought NAS90's new back when, we are quite confused about how we should present ourselves. We're unsure about the kind of image we are projecting and whether or not we are correct as we try to conform to current fashions. And for those of you who are nowhere near 50 yet, keep reading anyway . . . you'll be there.
Despite what you may have seen on the streets, the following combinations DO NOT go together and should be avoided:

1. A nose ring and bifocals
2. Spiked hair and bald spots
3. A pierced tongue and dentures
4. Miniskirts and support hose
5. Ankle bracelets and corn pads
6. Speedos and cellulite
7. A belly button ring and a gall bladder surgery scar
8. Unbuttoned disco shirts and a heart monitor
9. Midriff shirts and a midriff bulge
10. Pierced nipples that hang below the waist
11. Bikinis and liver spots
12. Short shorts and varicose veins
13. In-line skates and a walker
And the ultimate 'Bad Taste' in fashion.
14. A thong and Depends

Please keep these basic guidelines foremost in your mind when you shop- or drive your Defender

Wow! Took a little extra time to respond to this as I had to run change my Depends after reading this! Hate to ask about those over 60...I'm just saying...doesn't have anything to do with me...or anything. We'll be policing these at the next NOVA HH!

I was being kind- and sadly, sensitive, as I am at the 60 mark myself...

This list is quite helpful. After 30 years of wearing what other people tell me to wear I now have to dress myself (with sometimes hilarious results). Thanks guys!

Terrible, but surprisingly functional! Socks and Rocks as we say in Cali. Well, we call them Birken-rocks as they invariably pick up small stones and lob them under your feet. Really annoying. Socks solve the problem, but they also solve your dating life. As in eliminate it! So I only wore them around the house ;-)

I had a ponytail in college.
But at least I didn't have a man bun.
