“I don’t have anything to wear”. We’ve all said it. As women who care about being stylish and attractive, we love to constantly reinvent our style and create a new looks for special occasions. But, who has the time, or money for that matter, to buy a new outfit for every occasion? Certainly not me. That’s why I have come to love the art of accessorizing.
Do you consider yourself well-dressed? Are you a fashionista?
Some women over 60 were fashion icons in their earlier years and remain as such today. They know what looks best and wear what they are both comfortable in and what makes them look fabulous. Others follow the latest trends, chasing an image that may be more fantasy than reality.
Many older women believe that the common term which should describe their dress-up style is “age-appropriate.” However, this would mean that fashion has a certain set of rules and that women of a certain age can’t “get away with” following the trends anymore.
In a conversation with Margaret Manning of Sixty and Me, style expert Jodie Filogomo gives this advice about this year’s newest spring fashions: “Don’t follow the rules.” As a mature woman, you really have a lot of freedom to wear what you want and just enjoy looking your best.
Even if you spent every day of your first 59 years dressing to avoid attention, life after 60 should be your time to shine! In today’s interview, Margaret joins fashion and alternative ageing guru Suzi Grant to share tips on working wow into your wardrobe without wrecking your finances. Accessories are the key to making fashion after 60 whatever you want it to be!
In today’s video, Margaret Manning of Sixty and Me talks with style expert Jodie Filogmo, of Jodie’s Touch of Style, about fashion for mature women and one of this season’s biggest trends – leopard spots and other animal prints.
Actress and model Isabella Rossellini told a story a few years ago about an incident that occurred with her while she was perusing items at an antique store.
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.
I’m sure we all remember the “rules” that governed how to dress as we were growing up. I realize that it’s hard to change our thinking about something we’ve heard over and over throughout life. However, I do feel like it’s important to be open to new ideas and styles, too. It keeps us young and modern!
A lot of people, including myself, have fallen hard for the “Konmari” craze. In case you’ve been hiding under a rock, the trend – which has spread like wildfire – is the result of the enormous success of Marie Kondo’s best-selling book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up.
