Culture is trending more casual than ever before. Men and women used to dress up just to go downtown and do their shopping. Now – at least in some parts of the world – it’s not at all unusual to see folks shopping in their pajamas.
Fashion is about self-expression. You choose outfits that appeal to you. You desire that your clothes say something significant to the world around you.
Fashion should be – and is – for everyone. The idea that only the youngest, thinnest women deserve all the style attention is dead wrong. And thankfully, there are more options available to women of all ages, sizes, and shapes than ever before.
Your sense of fashion is like fine wine. It’s really catching its stride when you hit your 50s.
That’s true for plus size women, too. If you’re in your 50s now, you may have struggled with negativity about your body all your life.
The crunching of dry leaves under your shoes. A chilly breeze that makes you shrug your shoulders and zip up your jacket. Fall is here!
After decades of hard work, you’re approaching retirement – or maybe you’re already there, congrats! It’s going to be great – you’re already daydreaming about all you’ll do. But what about all your business attire? Will your clothes retire too?
As a woman over 50, finding your fit in the fashion world can be a major struggle. This is especially true for plus size women.
Have you ever seen someone wear an outfit that matches too much? They meticulously planned every piece of that outfit. They were going for a constant flow of style. But it’s just too much.
Do you like to be compared to fruit? Or a geometric form? How do you feel when you hear “pear shaped” or “rectangle”? It doesn’t exactly instill positive feelings.
Fear holds us back. It holds us back from saying what we feel and doing what we want. Fear even controls what we wear.
