Carolina Herrera Claims Wearing Jeans After 30 and Having Long Hair After 40 Is “Classless”
A fashion designer Carolina Herrera sparked a heated debate in the fashion industry with her bold claim that wearing jeans after the age of 30 and keeping long hair after 40 is considered “classless.” Known for her elegant designs and refined taste, Herrera’s remark has ignited a passionate discussion about age-appropriate clothes and personal style.
Carolina Herrera is one of the most distinguished designers.
She radiates an unmistakable elegance and effortless grace that has become synonymous with her fashion brand for over three decades. Her remarkable journey to the top of the highly competitive fashion industry began with the launch of her brand in New York. Now Carolina has a distinguished fashion collection, a bridal line, exquisite perfumes, and accessories. With lots of stores across the globe, her business generates billions of dollars in revenue.
She believes women should change as the years go by.
Carolina is sure that nothing ages a woman more than pretending to be young. She emphasizes the importance of nurturing one’s personal style after reaching a certain age, “I don’t believe in trends because trends make it look like you’re wearing a uniform. Some item of clothing comes out — and suddenly everyone looks the same.”
Jeans, mini-skirts, and bikinis are for young girls.
The designer says, “Never wear mini-skirts. A mini-skirt is for young girls. As for bikinis, I left them behind when I was in my late 40s/ early 50s.” She also believes that wearing jeans after 30 “doesn’t look right”, which provoked quite a reaction from her female colleagues.
The designer thinks only young women should have long hair.
Carolina believes that women over 40 should have short hair, otherwise they look “classless.” She explains, “A woman must age graciously, and not try to be an age she’s not, or she will look ridiculous. I see many women in the street and, from the back, they look very nice with their long hair and their little skirts. But when they turn around — aargh, they’re ancient!”
Jennifer Lopez, Nicole Kidman, and Kim Kardashian still look great.
Although Carolina advises against long hair in your 40s, such celebs as J. Lo, Nicole Kidman or Angelina Jolie still look stunning with long hair, and it’s hard to disagree. The most important thing is to feel comfortable in your body and love what you see in the mirror.
Mastering your personal style isn’t as hard as it seems. Although fashion has lots of rules, you don’t really have to follow them. However, you might want to take a look at the common fashion mistakes most women make.
