You might think that being stylish and fashionable is a privilege of youth. However, if you are able to achieve the right look, age is nothing but a number! There aren’t any rigid rules when it comes to how you should present yourself, just a couple of guidelines to help stir you in the right direction to choose what suits you best. Here are some tips and tricks you or your loved ones can use to achieve stylish looks after 50!
As we age into our golden years, we progress differently in terms of our weight, face shape, and skin tone. A hairdo that you enjoyed having when you were younger might not suit your style anymore. You or your loved ones can consult a hairstylist to recommend a haircut and length for you that suits your face shape. Getting regular trims, conditioner, and treatment not only keeps your hair healthy but also helps you to look tidy and presentable. When choosing a hair color, avoid lighter shades that can make you look washed out and older.
Clothes that fit well can help you feel good and boost your morale. Choosing clothes that are too small can be really uncomfortable and make you feel constricted. On the other hand, some people may feel that baggy clothes help to hide the size and weight, but it just makes us look bigger! Choosing the right fit helps you or your loved ones to look put together and feel confident. Confidence is key!
Revamp Your Wardrobe
Your fashion choices might need a reevaluation! If you are getting tired of wearing the same outfits that make you feel dull, it might be time for you to get out the old, and bring in the new! You or your loved ones can consider these basic must-have pieces in your wardrobe that you can mix and match for any occasion:
- Dark denim, mid-rise, boot-cut, or straight-leg jeans
You can pair these jeans with boots, ballet slippers, loafers, or even kitten heels! Ensure that the length of these jeans is about 1/8 inch off the floor, and fit well around the hips and bosom.
Look for three-quarter sleeves that are approximately hip-length to have a youthy look. Keep a few different colored ones in your wardrobe to match the tones of your different outfits.
Dresses flatter us and help us feel pretty and sexy, regardless of our age or size! Keep the dresses at knee length for a classy look, and pair the sleeveless ones with a cardigan.
Accessories can help to accentuate your best features and help you feel fabulous! Choosing suitable jewelry is more important than picking pricey ones. You or your loved ones can choose to opt for a statement necklace or a classy bracelet that can be suitable even on your grocery trip. Brooches look fashionable on older women. Choose classy colors and stylish designs that suit your style, attire, and the occasion. Avoid tacky, cheap-looking pieces. Stud earrings are a great accessory that can be suitable for any occasion – church, work, or a picnic out! Ideally, you would want to avoid large, dangly, and heavy earrings, as those can make your ears look droopy.
