What age should women stop wearing skinny jeans? – Forever 39 Podcast
Welcome to Forever 39, New Jersey 101.5's new podcast about living life as Gen Xers in New Jersey, hosted by Annette Petriccione, Megan Barsel and lots of our friends from the NJ 101.5 universe.
Is it time to stop wearing skinny jeans when you turn 47?
Where is the line between hot look and desperate for attention? Is a miniskirt after 40 a good idea or a bit desperate? Blue nail polish after 50, hot look, right? When does a baseball cap go from being a cute look on a woman to a sad sight? And tattoos? Maybe getting one drunk at 23, but drunk at 53?
The Huffington Post covered this topic in an article published online in July 2016, and received nearly 4,000 comments on the post. The article cited a poll of 2,000 people that were asked to give their opinions about when women should stop wearing certain things. The poll revealed that the majority felt 47 was the age when women should stop wearing their skinny jeans. And what about tattoos? Those polled said women shouldn't get any tattoos after the age of 38.
With the help of Dennis Malloy of the Dennis & Judi Show, we discuss if there really is an age when women and men should give up certain types of clothing.
Do you have an opinion?
Where are all of Jersey's gentlemen?
What do women want? Do we really want the hubby cleaning the bathroom or does it just sound good? Since women's roles have changed, and we're all pretty much non-stop between work, kids, spouse and the house ... does that mean men are not allowed to be a gentleman anymore?
Dennis Malloy, of the Dennis & Judi Show, offers great perspective from the guys side of things, while we discuss what women really want.
An online post from GoodGuySwag lists 21 gentlemen traditions that they say still apply today. Holding the door? Standing up when a woman walks into a room? Do you agree with any of them? Let us know by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Spending time alone — Love it or hate it?
Annette explains her comfort level going solo ... from dinner to shopping and even a vacation to Australia. On the other side of the fence is Megan who has never even gone to a movie theater by herself. Will she take Annette's challenge to try it out?
And while a stigma still exists to doing things alone, people find that it's not so bad once they try it. In fact, a research study called "Inhibited from Bowling Alone," found that people underestimated how much they would enjoy doing things alone.
So how about you? How willing are you to do things alone?
Join us for next week's podcast when we're joined by Toniann Antonelli, NJ 101.5 Digital Managing Editor for Programming, to discuss people that don't wear their wedding rings, our favorite board games and what we've noticed has happened to our bodies since we've turned 40!
