There are some things for which there should be no age; for example, clothing. Of course, we don’t mean trying to wear baby socks at 30 years old because there is no way a foot that big can fit into a garment that small.
However, when it comes to designs and colors, there are those who believe that they can only be worn at a certain age. But this couldn’t be further from the truth; we all have the freedom and the right to wear the clothes we want; even if there is always someone there to criticize.
