Almost every woman owns some version of the classic little black dress. While the LBD isn’t quite a uniform, this timeless piece is something most women feel comfortable wearing.
One of the most common myths that surround women over 60 is that makeup is no longer a part of our lives nor do we still have the desire to look as good as we feel.
This misconception is one that makes some women our age balk at the idea of visiting beauty and skin care stores. Do not let foolish ideas such as these keep you from doing what you want!
Contrary to popular myths, mature women today DO care about what they look like, style, fashion, and makeup. We care about our appearance every bit as much as younger women do, perhaps even more so!
Dressing up in your 60s isn’t always easy, and there may be some things that are holding you back. Be it comfort, style, the season, your shoes, or your accessories, these factors can greatly affect how you style yourself every day.
Like many things in life, the colors we wore when we were younger may not work for us as we grow older. How do you know if one of the color staples in your wardrobe still works well for you?
Margaret Manning talks with fashion blogger Patti Gibbons about the ageist belief that, after 50, women are no longer fashionable. They also discuss how mature women can change these beliefs, if they wish to.
If you want to put your best face forward, looking after your skin on the outside is just as important as eating well, exercising, and drinking water. We all want to look our best, but effective facial creams can often seem like an unaffordable expense and challenging to keep up.
After 50, it’s easy to see how mature women can become “invisible” to a society that is focused on (and some say obsessed with) youth. When a woman reaches mid-life, she shouldn’t feel invisible unless she chooses to. Mature women should feel beautiful and truly authentic.
When it comes to fashion for older women, many people don’t seem to realize that a lot of us are still working. We need smart clothes, and we want to look refined, elegant, and ravishing while wearing them.
What comes to your mind when you think of sophistication?
Maybe you imagine afternoon tea and sandwiches on fine china, everyone dressed in elegant garb.
