Is it teething time for your little one?


If you're in your 40s then you should enjoy your last few years of being able to wear skinny jeans, well at least that's according to a British survey.


Last month Retiresavvy surveyed 2,000 British people to discover their attitudes towards aging and the results they obtained are pretty grim by all accounts.


“Wearing skinny jeans is not acceptable after you turn 47,” reports the retirement planning website, and once you hit 40 “going on a lads’ or girls’ holiday is out if the question”.



Some of the other ridiculous revelations were that once you turn 36 you can say goodbye to having a favourite boyband and using 'text talk'.


Oh, but don't worry because you still have two more years of being able to get tattoos and piercings because everyone knows that's something only under 38s can do that.



To put the results into context: 37-year-old Kate Hudson might be young enough to bare her bum on Instagram but is too old to like boybands, 41-year-old Angelina Jolie can wow on any red carpet but is too old to go on holiday with the girls and 47-year-old Jennifer Anistion can still rock a bikini but needs to reconsider her jean collection.



But don't worry, because you can still funnel all your anger into 140 characters or less as the survey had no age-based discrimination against social media users.



Thankfully though, women are more likely than men to reject the stereotypes of old age so hopefully those who are rocking their skinnies, tattoos and One Direction tees will happily continue to do so despite the survey’s findings.
