I’m not a big fan of the labels that society attaches to women’s bodies and neither was fashion expert, Melanie Payge, when we filmed our fashion over 60 videos. On the other hand, the fact is, when it comes to purchasing clothes, women really do face unique challenges based on their body types.
Do you have a passion for fashion? The more you follow the latest trends, the more mistakes you’ll make with regards to fashion for women over 60. Instead of focusing on timeless fashion principles, your attention is fixed on short-term fads that don’t play to your strengths as a beautiful and confident older woman.
Be honest. How many times have you purchased something just because you “loved the color”? Other than fit, one of the first things that we look at when choosing a new item of clothing is the color. Unfortunately, as we age, our skin changes and many of the colors that looked great on us when we were younger no longer make us sparkle.
Most women over 60 will at some point find themselves dealing with grey hair. While this is a natural part of the aging process, some women still find it hard to let go of their “original” hair color, and resort to dyes, highlights or other methods to avoid going grey. On the other hand, there are also plenty of women who seem to be embracing the change in their hair color and are going grey gracefully!
Over the decades, women over 60 have experimented with different fashion trends and, through process of elimination, we have found a few styles that we love. We adapted our style to the many roles that we were asked to play – student, mother, career woman and grandmother.
Many women over 60 are interested in keeping our skin healthy as we get older, and there is a growing awareness that a lot of store-bought products have unnecessary and sometimes harmful ingredients.
Summer is finally here and, like many women, I am ready to refresh my wardrobe. There’s only one problem. Most clothing for older women is just plain, well… plain.
People think that older women don’t care about how they look. Ridiculous! We still want to look our best. We research the best hairstyles for older women and we try to pick clothes that make us look and feel great! Unfortunately, it’s not always easy to get the information we need. So, I thought that it would be fun to look for a little inspiration from our favorite older actresses.
Very few of us can afford to have a celebrity makeup artist following us around. But, we can all learn how to apply makeup for women over 60 like a professional makeup artist! In this video, Ariane Poole will teach you her best makeup secrets for women our age.
There are so many new products and formulations that it is sometimes difficult to make a decision on the best makeup for older woman. In fact, the retail consultants are often overwhelmed by the choices themselves!
