Fashion is ageless, and it has no boundaries. If you like something, wearing it is up to you. However, there has always been a notion that after you reach a “certain” age, you should abide by the rules. There are some styles that I personally don’t like, or won’t wear. But, it is not because of my age, it is because of my body type. This plays right into my mantra, “Age Is An Attitude, Keep Yours Young.”
Being young at heart can, and should, spill over to your wardrobe. I am aware that there are some who have to dress a certain way because of your jobs. Hopefully, you can still have a little fun on the weekends with your style. Laugh, twirl, dance, and strut! There is no one else quite like you, and you need to remember how awesome you are. Your are one of the “GURLS.”
Today I am joining a bunch of lovely ladies whose ages range from in their teens to their 60’s. We will be showcasing how women from different age groups can still style a look. The theme for today is red. I styled red for a whole week for Valentine’s Day and Heart Health Month, so it was a little hard for me to find an outfit that I hadn’t already worn.This Lands End red boiled wool vest has been one of my favorite pieces since I bought it years ago. It is so old, I can’t even remember when I bought it. This is just another example of clothing that may not be the latest style, but I am not going to part with it. Similar. This scarf is reminiscent of Burberry, but not even close to the price tag. I have worn it several times this year. Here is one similar to mine, and check out the Burberry scarf and see if mine is similar. The black purse was bought at the craft fair this past fall. I liked the hardware on the front and the strip look in the leather. Here is a price friendly version, and here is a similar Michael Kors.This gray dress/tunic is by Cherish USA and I bought it from Classy Closet when she set up at the craft fair my woman’s club organized this past November. Here is how I wore it last. It is super soft, and feels fabulous next to the skin. That is why I initially purchased it, I couldn’t get over how soft it was. Here is a similar tunic by Cherish USA. You will notice that in this picture I changed purses. I will do this often trying to decide which one I like. This one is a Dooney & Bourke that I bought at the QVC outlet. I looked everywhere I could think of to find this purse, but it must be discontinued. Here is as close as I could find. The black suede ankle boots were from Old Navy, and are several years old. Here is a similar version.This week in London, they finally addressed the idea that women over 50 are fashionable. Models over the age of 50 took to the runway and looked fabulous!!! I can’t believe they have ignored such a large part of the population, one that has a thirst for fashion and can usually afford to buy what they want. Wake up retailers, we are over 50 and hear us ROAR!
