If you or someone you love is a over 60…. then please read this…
Just because you are of a certain age that DOES NOT mean you can’t be stylish. Yes, our youth obsessed culture will have you think that everyone over the age of 30 should either a. dress like Kim Kardashian or b. wear horrible mommy jeans and Christmas sweaters. Yes, we know, many trends are geared for the younger generation (very few people over the age of 14 can wear neon leggings), but it’s the seasoned fashionista who can exude real style. If you’ve crossed the 60-year mark and still want to keep it poppin’, here’s some tips on how to do it.
1. Don’t shun your past
You’re a few years older, but you’re still you, so dress accordingly. If you think you need to redo your wardrobe, think again. Movie star Rita Moreno is still working the hot pink dresses and big baubles she loved in the days of West Side Story– just updated versions of them. She doesn’t shy away from color (we would really like to meet the person who said mature fashionistas can’t wear color, so not true) and trades the 4 inche heels in for a pair of 2 ½ chic sandals. At nearly 80 years old, Rita is showing everyone that she’s the same fun, fiery woman she was in her youth– with the same chic style.
If you’ve always loved the way you look in blue, or if your wardrobe work-horse is a tailored pair of slacks, stick with it. Love that strapless dress? Wear it, but pair it with a chich cropped blazer. You know what works for you, so don’t be swayed by others’ opinions of what you should wear. Recall your greatest fashion moments and find a modernized, mature way of recreating them.
