I frequent malls and quant neighborhood streets with small shops and restaurants and I must say I can’t help myself get annoyed with women in their 40s wearing outdated or their daughters sweatsuits in public. I don’t think women in their 40s should wear sweat suits in public but if they really really have to, then it’s best to consider the following:
1. Black pants, no purple, brite green or yellow please.
2. Full lenght preferred over capri style, unless of course you are having brunch with a friend immeidately after a brisk walk or run or a walk with your dog, otherwise avoid wearing any part of a sweat suit for any outings.
3. A zip up jacket rather than a fruit of the loom pullover with your college name or a midwestern town name printed across the front.
4. And finally a pair of tennis shoes, rather than a 3 inch pair of open toe shoes is much appreciated.
