Would that be the 1920s?

Keeping up with the times and spotting fashion trends? That’s not exactly what the editors at Yahoo! Shine are doing right now. They’re nearly a century late with advice on how to dress for work in the 1920s:

That’s pretty much the dumbest use of an apostrophe that I’ve ever seen. The apostrophe indicates the omission of a letter (or two) or a digit (or two). In this case, I’m guessing the only thing missing here is the writer’s knowledge of punctuation.

    Wow. The lady in that picture looks fantastic for her age. She must be at least 113 years old.

    “How to dress for your hundred-and-20s”?

    As for the 1920s, I’ll just watch “The Great Gatsby”.

      Hadn’t thought of that, but I guess it could indicate a missing digit signifying age. Can’t imagine there are lots of ladies out their wondering how to dress in their 120s, though.

    Maybe they meant the 2020s. Ever think of that? Huh?
