When it comes to fashion for older women, what are the fashion essentials that everyone should have in their wardrobe? Judith Boyd (a.k.a “The Style Crone”) has the answer!
Seeing young women advertising anti-aging creams has always annoyed me. Their skin is already flawless. What “improvements” could they possibly desire? I realize, of course, that I may not be in the target audience for most anti-aging creams. Women who are under extreme pressure to look useful are usually in their 30s or 40s.
Ooh La La! My friend and fashion after 60 expert Judith Boyd is back from her trip to Paris and she has some unexpected fashion tips to share! If you have been following Judith for a while, you know that she is fabulously eccentric and fun to watch.
Do you love hats? So do I! I’m not sure why, but, the older I get, the more I love looking for interesting hats and other accessories. Talking with the other women in the Sixty and Me community, it sounds like I’m not alone!
When I travel by train, I often gaze at people and pretend to be Sherlock Holmes. One of the trends that I have noticed recently is tattoos for older women. It seems like many women my age are breaking aging stereotypes and adding some ink to their beautiful older bodies. Personally, I’ve never had the urge to get a tattoo, but, I totally understand where they are coming from!
Of all of the people that I have interviewed for the Sixty and Me Show, Cindy Joseph is one of my favorites. Cindy is a mature model and the founder of Boom Cosmetics. She is undeniably beautiful, but, it is her personality and passion for life that I appreciated the most.
When I sat down to talk with Cindy, I expected the conversation to focus on how to find beauty after 60 in a practical sense – what to wear, how to apply makeup, etc. What we actually talked about was far more philosophical – and far more interesting.
One of the best things about getting older is that you no longer need to worry about what people think. This is especially true when it comes to style and fashion for women over 60. Sure, there are certain principles that can help you to look your best – but, for the most part, now is the time to express your personality!
Humans are social creatures and we are aware (sometimes painfully so) of the ways that we are perceived by others.
For many women, including myself, New Year’s always seems to be a time of “giving things up.” Maybe you’re promising yourself to watch a little less cheesecake this year – or watch a little less TV. These are both noble goals, but, this year I want to propose that we all say “yes” to something.
Every year, Pantone chooses a new color that it feels reflects the fashion, beauty, and home décor industries. It should be a color that resonates with people around the world – and it also needs to look great too! It’s an important decision that sends designers and retail stores rushing to stock the magic color.
