The standard grey-black plastic macs of the 50s/60s were without hoods,to accommodate school uniform caps(yuck! Some of the other brands of plastic mac did have attached hoods, but most had separate rain bonnets, so beloved of Susan.When plastic macs reappeared with a vengeance, in the late 70s, the attached hoods were one of the most attractive features.But unless you are the extremely toned 62-year-old Helen Mirren (or have a body to match hers), I see no reason why you have to spend the time you have left to the gym rather than just putting a sheer kaftan over the top.What can I say: as you get older you need to be able to undo all those buttons and slip the wretched thing off your shoulders with a great deal of haste.In case you have been having a nap for the past five years or so, in which case you are definitely too old for this trend, skintight dresses are made of very thick, stretchy fabric, and cling to your every curve. But I think they can still look good on those of us who are in reasonable shape but have perhaps lost some tautness in the stomach, because they hold us in.You can find lots of body-contour dresses that end just below the knee, autumn's new sexy length.Pakamac may be gone, unfortunately, but the tradition is kept going by "Stay Dry", "PVC-U-Like", and one or two others.One good thing about Pakamac is that they kept their prices very reasonable even though they were leaders in their particular field, and their successors have followed suit.

Lily Allen, 23, usually looks fashionable and fresh in her Fifties-inspired ensembles, but this shapeless dress, teamed with red flats, matching hairband and shades, makes her look like a 12-year-old going to a school disco.
My friend Caroline, who is in her 60s, tells me she gave up plunging necklines and wrap dresses when she turned 50 because not only did she want to cover up any crepe-like skin, but showing off your breasts is not very classy when you hit that milestone age.
