A recent survey conducted among 2,000 Brits has revealed some surprising opinions—including at what age women should give up on mini skirts altogether.

The poll results appeared on Retire Savvy’s website, and included such gems as hanging up your skinny jeans by 47, removing belly button piercings by 38, and swapping out your white sneakers by 49.
