Recently Charlize Theron bagged hard on the women she sees sporting Hello Kitty and the like on their T-shirts well into their 30s. Her role in the upcoming film Young Adult was likely what brought the topic to the fore in this case, but her opinions are pretty unwavering. Recently Muppets have made their way onto grown-up attire in a nostalgic way, and even the Angry Birds have become a seemingly age-neutral trend for T’s. What’s your stance on these kid trends on adults?
I’m pretty amazed by Hello Kitty. I see so many women in their 30s walking around in Hello Kitty sh*t and nobody is concerned for them,” Theron said. “It’s the one iconic teenage symbol that seems okay for women in their 30s? The world seems to not have an issue with it.”

Are PJ’s okay? Tarina Tarantino’s Hello Kitty jewelry was super popular with Hollywood starlets for a while. Where do we draw the line? Of course no one wants to see a woman who is trying to wear her daughter’s ill-fitting clothes, but is it a juvenile fascination or just a woman’s right to be able to wear these cartoons if she pleases? Do we, or Ms. Theron, have any right to judge?
What do you think, Lovelies? What’s the cutoff age for Hello Kitty and her cartoon counterparts?
