I believe if we’re over fifty we inspire others by staying fashion conscious, embracing our age and style.
We tread that fine line between maintaining a youthful attitude without looking like we’re trying too hard. You know what I mean. We owe it to ourselves and every generation to be a shining example of what it means to grow older by embracing our age.
Let’s show the young how embracing your age is done.
We can be a perfect example that you can dismiss the decades, look gorgeous and be an influencer. To be a positive influence, we have to keep in mind we’re not dressing for anyone else but ourselves. BUT, there are some exceptions.
I do have some pet peeves about what NOT to wear as you age. I love to be comfortable too, but it shouldn’t be the only deciding factor when deciding what to wear. Whenever possible I love to find styles that are comfortable AND make me feel chic and stylish.
My mantra? If I feel great wearing it, it stays in my closet! If I don’t it goes.
Take a look through your closet and say:
- A neutral floppy sun hat
- A pretty tone scarf stylishly draped
- A pair of trendy walking shoes
- A chic hobo bag
- Flattering one piece swimsuit
and NO thank you to
- Sun hats with neck flaps
- Overly bright floral scarf
- “Comfort shoes”
- Too big, too glittery handbags
- Too revealing two piece swimsuit
I did say it was a fine line – you get to decide what works best for you. Just make sure it makes you feel great about embracing your age.
