Baby boomer women might not want to wear their daughters' jeans and men may refuse to don muscle shirts, but the generation that brought us tie-dye still wants to remain fashionable and hip well into middle age. How to monetize that desire is both a marketer's conundrum and dream. "Even with mature figures, boomers want to have fashionable options," says Roseanne Morrison, fashion director for the Doneger Group, an industry consultant. "That doesn't stop just because you hit a certain age. " The problem is, designers and retailers often don't know how to reach a demographic that is varied, numerous, and affluent.

WHEN YOU'RE the stepfather of Eve, the rapper/actress from Philadelphia who costars in the new Barbershop flick that opens Friday, folks expect you to be fly. And he is. At Eve's 2014 fairy-tale wedding on Ibiza to multimillionaire entrepreneur Maximillion Cooper, Ron Wilch stepped out in a white linen Moroccan-style outfit.

Charlie Puth may be a 24-year-old, piano-pounding pop sensation from Rumson, N.J., whose roots go as far back as ...  YouTube, and whose gossipy connections include rumored hookups with Selena Gomez, but the songs he writes and the sounds he makes are the workings of a very old soul. At least one older than Gomez. While Puth's lyrics reference the ageless pains of romance and smooth R&B legends ("Marvin Gaye"), his buoyant melodies - on full display at a sold-out-to-the-rafters show at South Street's Theatre of Living Arts on Monday night - nod to quintessentially classic pop perfectionists Billy Joel, Todd Rundgren and George Gershwin.

So, shoulders are a thing. Not because of a quintessential bare-all moment like cleavage had at the 2000 Grammy Awards when Jennifer Lopez wore that Versace gown. And not because any shoulder got itself a Twitter account like Angelina Jolie's leg did in 2012. The thigh-high slit in the actress' black Atelier Versace earned her limb 38,000 Twitter followers that year. This spring's shoulder reveal was slow and somewhat surprising. One minute, we were all wrapping our arms in filmy, floral scarves and plush pashminas - in the summer months, too - with even our T-shirts raglan-sleeved.
