Live Your VIE

It seems like as you age, everyone has an opinion about what you should and should not be doing. It seems like there are new studies and opinion pieces cropping up every other day informing us about cut-off ages for certain activities, the way we eat and how we dress.

One study recently attempted to answer the question "how old is too old to wear jeans?" As odd as that may sound, apparently, there is an age when people should give up wearing the versatile pant. According to the survey results, after the age 53, people should hang up their denim because the hassle that accompanies the search for a pair that fits well isn't worth it.

Just as everyone is starting to calm down from fussing over the survey's ridiculous results, another popular piece of clothing has become the center of the 'how old is too old' debate.

A new piece published in the New York Times by senior opinion editor Honor Jones, has caused quite the uproar on social media after she insinuated that yoga pants are neither practical nor comfortable, but women wear them "because they're sexy."

"We felt we had to look hot on dates — a given. We felt we had to look hot at the office — problematic. But now we’ve internalized the idea that we have to look hot at the gym? Give me a break," Jones wrote in the article titled "Why Yoga Pants Are Bad For You."

She continued, "The gym is one of the few places where we’re supposed to be able to focus on how our bodies feel, not just on how they look. We need to remember that. Sweatpants can help."

The fury only worsened when Jones wrote that after a certain age, women should just stick to wearing good ol' sweatpants.
