Can/Should you wear Holliser if your in your 30's?

3 0
Saw a great deal on this site from Hollister but was wondering if it would make for a good gift for someone in their early 30's?

I really don't think so. I am a college professor and you can really get a feel for what is meant just for young people and what can reasonably be worn by someone who is well into adulthood. I would feel foolish wearing Hollister. Which is a shame as they make some hoodies that look comfortable and really well made.

You could probably wear NorthFace which is a fairly cutting edge brand that doesn't seem limited to young people. NorthFace is pretty expensive, though.

You should be able to wear whatever you feel like. Most retailers make clothes for different occasions and purposes. For instance, I'm sure anyone can wear sweatpants or hoodies made by Hollister at honme...

Not going to lie, when I see those kind of kid brands on adults, i think of the person as trashy. If it looks adult like its fine, but if it says hollister all over it, NO!

i think age is just a number and you should wear whatever you feel comfortable wearing. Hollister makes really good sweat pants with great material. don't pass it up due to your age!
i think i will forever be wearing abercrombie till i am a 100 (that's if i'm still alive) ;) good luck.

What's holliser? Although in my opinion you should be able to wear whatever you like.

Why not? Im 40 and love American Eagle clothing. I just like the fit and feel of their denim and their button front poplin shirts and flannels are super comfy and look great.

I think it really depends on the person's personal style, not just the brand itself. If they are brand fiends and enjoy sporting labels, then why not go for it? But if they're a little more upscale, or have a different type of look, I'd say no.

The problem with Hollister and similar brands is their flashiness. Their clothes aren't that bad if you can find some that don't have their logo so prominent or tacky print plastered allover. You'll look more age-appropriate that way.

You should wear whatever you feel good in but you may get some weird looks or if you have kids they might give you a hard time. Or maybe you get lucky and get nominated to be What not to wear and get a whole new wardrobe.Also I really hate logos or silly sayings all over clothing. I feel like Im advertising for the company.

I don't understand the question....

I think the people who wore Hollister, A&F, etc in their teens and pre-teens are probably now around 30. If they prefer to wear some of their clothes, I don't have a problem with it. I'm in my mid 20s and I don't think I'll be willing to give up my Hollister sweatpants in 5 or 6 years although I've already given up on most of their shorts. I've always steered clear of the shirts with words or logos though because I don't like paying a company to advertise their brand. They should pay me to wear their logo, right?! ;)

I'm 40, and I still wear clothing from those stores. The person might be 30 and shop in Hollister making themselves dress their age and not younger. I think it depends on HOW u dress yourself and as long as u not trying to look like a teen......i'd say "shop Hollister"!

Life's too short to give a %$&# what someone else thinks about your clothes.

I think by the time you're in your 30's, you should spend your money on beautiful, quality clothing, shoes and handbags. The question is not whether you can wear those clothes, it is why on earth would you want to? My opinion, of course. :)

you can wear whatever you want. but personally, I would stick with the Hollister stuff that doesn't have the brand emblazoned all over it. keep it simple and classy. This is the difference between style and fashion.

I'm in my 40s and in pretty good shape (5ft 185 lbs). And no gray hair. Anyway, I usually opt to wear Burberry or Calvin Klein when out, but if just kicking around I will wear a Hollistet or Abercrombie hoodie thst is very low key. The clothing just feels so good and the quality for the price is not bad. As long as it doesn't have the brand screaming it's name on it and it is comfortable, I will wear it.
