Baby boomers have always challenged the status quo. It’s not that we are subversive by nature. Instead, we seem to have an allergy to people telling us what we should and shouldn’t do. In the past, we have challenged injustices and fought for what we believe in. Now, as we reach retirement, we are helping to redefine “acceptable behavior” for older adults.

When I travel by train, I often gaze at people and pretend to be Sherlock Holmes. One of the trends that I have noticed recently is tattoos for older women. It seems like many women my age are breaking aging stereotypes and adding some ink to their beautiful older bodies. Personally, I’ve never had the urge to get a tattoo, but, I totally understand where they are coming from!
One of the best things about getting older is that you no longer need to worry about what people think. This is especially true when it comes to style and fashion for women over 60. Sure, there are certain principles that can help you to look your best – but, for the most part, now is the time to express your personality!
Every year, Pantone chooses a new color that it feels reflects the fashion, beauty, and home décor industries.
