Fashion over 60 is a tricky business. On the one hand, by the time we reach our 60th birthdays, we have (mostly) learned to love and accept our bodies. We also don’t really care what other people think of us, even if we still enjoy fashion, makeup and style.

In a previous article, I asked the women in our community to describe their personal style in 3 words. I absolutely loved all of your responses! That said, I also realized that I may not have been specific enough about exactly how to develop your own personal style.
Many women in the Sixty and Me community say that they feel invisible. Sometimes, this feeling comes from no longer having your kids around to take care of. Other times, feeling invisible is more closely related to the way in which society treats older women.
