One of the most important ways to stay visible as we age is by wearing color, especially wearing it near our faces.
With Christmas around the corner, we all want to find the best outfit to wear. Should we settle for something comfortable, or perhaps go for a sparkly look? Fashion blogger, Josephine Lalwan, is here today to give us some tips for best Christmas day outfits. Enjoy the show!
I’ve heard the question over and over about the appropriateness of leggings for us older women. Furthermore, who hasn’t heard the statement that leggings aren’t pants? However, I’m of the opinion that any age woman can wear them and look fantastic.
If you’re like me, you never tire of TV series and movies set in the 1920s. Even though Downton Abbey has ended, we who have the DVDs or Netflix get to watch our favorite episodes again and again. And if you’re like me, you pay particular attention to the costumes and jewelry, which are like eye candy.
Welcome to another in my series of how to live like a millionaire on a retirement budget.
To start, there is no one way that a millionaire dresses. Because as we all know, there is no relation between having money and good taste. The good news is you don’t want to dress like a millionaire. What you really want is this – to feel like a million in your clothes.
By this time in our lives, we probably don’t need to go buy something new for any of the holidays coming up on the calendar. I’m sure most of us have many items in our closet that could work for either a dressy occasion or a casual event. But there are times we all panic and think “I have nothing to wear!”
I have a confession to make: I don’t own a little black dress. For some time, I’ve been wearing navy and other dark neutrals for my evening attire. Navy is more flattering to my skin tone.
A few weeks ago, I asked the members of our community whether, when it comes to fashion after 50, it is more important to “look good” or “feel good.” Perhaps somewhat predictably, many women commented that they didn’t feel like this was a fair choice. They said that they always selected clothes that look great AND feel great.
Too often, women over 60 fall victim to the mindset that, as we age, we become invisible. Stereotypes about aging and unfair fashion “rules” can make us feel like what we wear or our personal fashion choices simply don’t matter.
At age 88, Baddie Winkle is fashionably reminding all of us that this is not true! By refusing to accept invisibility, Winkle has become an inspiration for women of all ages.
Last spring, I began interviewing women over 50, 60, 70 and 80 for a video series about the importance of staying visible as we age.
