You just stepped off the runway. A soft breeze gently sweeps your hair back. You gracefully glide down the stage to a sea of flashing cameras. Heads turn to see you decked out in a tulle gown with crystal Gucci tassels…
If your clothes could speak, what message would they be sending the world? Hopefully it’s something positive, like:
“Take me seriously. I’m a force to be reckoned with.”
“I love life and live every day to its fullest.”
Plus-sized women often deal with a barrage of unsolicited advice. Opinions on what to wear, what not to wear, the right colors, the wrong colors, unacceptable styles and cuts, etc. Even when those suggestions come with the best intentions, they can be downright insulting.
If you are anything like me, then you’ve had scarves in your closet for many, many years. Whether you wear them or not is a different story. But now that the weather is getting cooler and we need extra layers to keep warm, these are great items that work for any age, any size woman.
How would you describe yourself? A copy cat? A sheep, blending into the herd, indistinct and dull?
Didn’t think so.
Today I wanted to share some fashion faux pas for women over 60 but in a little different way. This list of fashion no-nos that I have put together is based on one overarching theme.
I think it is the biggest faux pas of all, and therefore worth mentioning before we go any further. And that is, thinking that being fashionable when you’re over 60 is synonymous with looking younger.
We all have our favorite clothes for a night out with friends or just bumming around the house. But when you want to make a good impression at work, there’s more at stake than just what you like.
