Maggie Smith’s Statement Jackets

The Sun Military Awards 2014 - Arrivals

Acting legend Maggie Smith may have just turned 80, but that isn’t about to put a dampener on her style. While the Downtown Abbey star knows that black may be slimming and eternally stylish, she also understands that it’s great to break up all-black with a pop of print.

We adore the way transforms her head-to-toe black outfit with the addition of a floral blazer. While the print is fresh and feminine, the structured shape is contemporary and youthful, earning Smith some serious style points.

Sure, a floaty ankle-length skirt may hide a multitude of sins but it’s also extremely aging. Take Meryl Streep’s lead with a pair of tailored, slim fit trousers –- they’re more flattering than you think. Tapered shapes draw the eye downwards to the slimmest part of your leg, creating the illusion of longer legs.

Sally Field’s Color Pop Dresses

"Lincoln" Madrid Photocall

Actress Sally Field proves that you needn’t shy away from color as you age. While black may be a timeless option, it can also be draining. The right color dress can warm up your complexion and make your eyes pop. If like Sally Field you have a warm skin tone (generally speaking you have brown hair and tan easily) clothes with a yellow undertone such as red, coral, tan, green, burnt orange and gold will be most complementary.

If you’ve have a cool complexion, colors with a blue undertone such as silvers, lilacs, purples and pinks will work best. A simple color-block shift dress is a classic style that works just as well in your sixties as is it did in your thirties.
