I am so sick of hearing that woman over 40 should dress a certain way My question is : Is there really somewhere written how I should dress as I get older?

I think it's more that women of a certain age simply look BETTER in certain styles than they do in others. People also say "She shouldn't be wearing that" about a very overweight 25-year-old in tiny shorts. I think that, at any age, there is an unwritten rule that we all should dress in what flatters our bodies and covers us appropriately, and to do otherwise would be considered distasteful or even obscene.
I think there's also the assumption that women in your age range are mothers, and so should dress in a way that is appropriate to be around children. Most people would feel uncomfortable at the sight of a kindergarten teacher in daisy dukes, bare tummy and massive cleavage, even if she has a perfect body.0
