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! In this episode of the Sixty and Me Show, I sit down with fashion for women over 60 expert Judith Boyd (The Style Crone) to discuss why hats are one of the most fascinating items of clothing for women over 60.
One of the best things about being over 60 is that you no longer need to worry about what people think. This is especially true when it comes to clothing 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!
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.
I think we can all agree that there’s some truth to the stereotype that women love shoes. For some of us, “obsessed” would be a more appropriate word. Throughout our lives, shoes have been a part of our identity. Now, as we get a little older, we have to learn to adapt to our changing feet.
When I met with fashion expert, Melanie Payge, to film our fashion for women over 60 video series, I was amazed by the number of simple, yet powerful, tips that she was able to provide. From not wearing a white bra with a white top to the importance of tailoring, Melanie was an amazing source of practical information and advice.
Throughout the course of filming our interviews, I found myself constantly ready to disagree with Melanie on a particular point, only to change my mind once I saw her examples up close and personal. This was definitely the case when it came to Melanie’s advice about belts.
Be honest. How many scarves do you have tucked away at your house? Dozens? Hundreds? If you’re like most women over 60, it probably feels that way. When I spoke with fashion expert, Melanie Page, during our fashion filming in Milan, she explained that scarves are one of the most popular, and least understood, items of clothing in our wardrobes. And, this is especially true for women over 60.
I have a confession to make. I love shoes. I wouldn’t quite classify myself as a “shoe addict,” but, if I ever win the lottery, there will most definitely be a closet in my bedroom dedicated to footwear. So, you can imagine my excitement in having the opportunity to talk with fashion expert, Melanie Payge, on the topic of how to choose comfy shoes that are also fashionable.
When I visited Milan to interview fashion expert, Melanie Payge, I had the opportunity to spend some time in the amazing showroom and tailor, Atelier Sangalli. What an amazing experience! Tailoring is one of the oldest and most fascinating professions and to experience the process in the heart of Milan was an absolute treat. I came away thinking that, in a world filled with mass-produced clothing and cookie-cutter styles, it’s a shame that more women don’t take advantage of the services of these highly skilled professionals.
Before leaving for Milan to interview fashion expert, Melanie Payge, I asked the Sixty and Me community to send me their fashion questions. As I studied their emails, certain patterns emerged. For example, while the women in our community are wonderfully unique, their fashion concerns are strikingly similar.
As women over 60, we have come to accept the changes in our body and love ourselves. At the same time, we are realists. We want to choose clothes that accentuate our best assets and hide our perceived flaws. So, as a part of our fashion for women over 60 video series, I sat down with Melanie to discuss your concerns and look for simple solutions.
