 It seems to me that not only does not one become invisible after a certain age but suitable, fashionable clothes also disappear from the scene. I love classic clothes but these can look dowdy unless…Continue

I'm in my mid fifties and I agree its so difficult these days to find clothes suitable, I've got that too old for some clothes and too young for others going on. I agree about the quality too I can't remember when I last bought clothes in M&S for that reason. My mother-in-law has some clothes from M&S that have the old St Michael label in them they are still like new are very good quality.I also have trouble buying jeans as the waist bands are so low these days.

Guess this section isn't popular but now Autumn is here will you be hibernating in trousers and the inevitable Anorak?

I was amazed this hot Summer to find women still wearing trousers rather than skirts/dresses. I found myself counting the number of women in skirts : very, very few.

Times have certainly changed!

Walked round a large M&S store yesterday and find that they still will not stock dresses with sleeves, and with a V neck. I like the style of a shift dress but the round neck makes me feel claustrophobic.

The worst item I saw was a T-shirt with a V neck that had been cut and left unstitched! It cost £15 and looked as if someone had forgotten to complete it. Dreadful!

To answer your October comment, my reason for wearing mainly trousers are my appalling legs and the fact that I have arthritis in my feet means I normally have to wear lace up shoes which are not a good look with skirts. I have worn a longish skirt a couple of times this summer with sandals but they are not easy to walk far in.

Have you tried Cotton Traders Mary? I bought a dress there last year which has short sleeves and a V neck.  Have only worn it once though (see above).  I can't wear high necks for the same reason as you but do wear scooped out round neck tops.

Confession time! I have been wearing trousers this Summer, a case of, if you can't beat them, join them, I fear.

 Bon Marche and Roman Originals have become my favourite websites on line and I usually order when free postage is offered.

Both firms cater for the older woman!!.

Does anyone else find the latest fashions "confusing"? Once upon a time there was a definite "look"; now, anything seems to go!

I do wear trousers now (sigh), and these also take some sorting. In M&S I gave up. There were rows of different styles, all black., and for me they all had "jug handles". Bon Marche had the best, black tapered in three different lengths.Lovely fabric and excellent price!

I just buy what I like and suits me, mainly trousers as I have unfortunate legs!

Hiya, if you have any fashion questions, my daughter Natasha is a fashion designer and very helpful - I take her shopping with me and she has given me amazing advice!

What do I need to buy to add to black trousers and white blouses to look up to date, Natasha, please? My thanks in advance.

July: I am still trying to work out what "unfortunate legs" look like. What everyone needs is legs that work! :-)
