We women "of a certain age" know that style isn't about the latest trend but is about wearing what is well made, looks good on us and makes others notice us for being the attractive women we are. And we don't want to buy something that only lasts a season or less.
Here are some trends to look at and alternatives for us.
Statement necklaces are not in style anymore. Now it is trendier to wear pendants on chains, even several at the same time. And chokers are back.
But if you want to always look elegant, you can never go wrong wearing pearls. This is NOT a trend item and a very worthwhile investment. And you can even wear them with denim (like in the country song!).
These are still very trendy and no matter how flat your abs are and how trim your waistline, they are best suited for young females...not us.
Instead, there are cool and comfortable tops that make us look wonderful now.
So many options based on how you feel about exposing your arms, your chest, your back and more.
They are still in style this year but this trend is really not very comfortable or practical. Let the youngsters wear all that leather strapping.
We want shoes of style AND comfort. I, for one, like a padded inner sole to support my posture and feet.
And lastly, skirts. Young women can wear the short, fitted skirts that are so on trend. Let them struggle, as we did, getting in and out of cars!
We've already done that and now don't want to worry about how we sit down. Pencil skirts are a wonderful look, no matter your weight (if you buy the right fit). And you will look polished and lovely.
So look at what the trends are now in style in your magazines and websites. Enjoy reading them. Then wear the classics to be your best you!
Until next time, I remain,
