Capri Pants

Fashion Do or Don't?
 
At the mall, I overheard someone say, "Well, everybody knows that women over the age of 35 should never, ever wear capri pants!"
 
Is this true?
 
I shopped for my summer wardrobe last fall. You know me, always going for the stuff on the clearance racks. I bought some capri pants. I love, love, love wearing them! I seriously thought they were age appropriate. I mean, after all, I've seen women older than me wear them and I never thought, Ew, how tacky! I'll be the first one to tell you that I hate to see women my age try to hold on to that shred of youth by raiding their college-age daughters closets. I don't care HOW good your body looks; Chances are, your face doesn't look like a twenty year old. And, for Heaven's sake, Stay away from the Hanna Montana (or whatever she's calling herself now days) section!  
 
Common sense (and my spider veins) tells me that my mini-skirt-wearing days are over. Shorts? You won't even catch me at Walmart, in the garden department wearing shorts. That's why I love capris and sun dresses in the summer. Sun dresses that are at the knee or below, that is.
 
Must I wear long pants just because I'm over 35? How do you ladies feel about this? What will you be wearing this summer?
 
Just curious
