It can be difficult for women to get their hands on the “appropriate” apparel for themselves after a certain age. Baby boomers are often seen caught up in a whirlwind of rules, age-appropriate concerns and fashion trends, leaving them frustrated in the quest of finding something right to wear.
To make it easy for them to pick up a perfect outfit, here are a few suggestions:
Don’t Ignore the Fit – Compromising on fit for better style, fabric or anything else is a sin. In fact, apparels that have nice cuts and high-quality fabrics usually have a great fit.
Opt for Neutral Colors – Khaki, charcoal, black and navi are some softer color choices that you can wear any time. A small warning to follow here is, take care of how much black is showing against your face in the day time as sometimes it may appear a little harsh. Instead of laying your hands on the primary colors, you can try the jewel tones. For the evening, go with white or black, without any hesitation.
Wear Bold and Big Accessories – Break free from the tiny sentimental pieces of jewelry and try on a bolder and bigger piece of accessory. A strong jewelry piece makes you look all chic without looking overboard.
Picking a good age-appropriate casual outfit poses a challenging situation for any women over the age of 40. Know that you need not have to match everything to put a look together, like your mom used to. Think different and be confident enough to experiment something outside the fashion rut.
Be Sensuously Smart – Wrap dresses are amazing but women with larger breasts may not be too comfortable wearing them because of the fit. Few of these dresses have such low-cuts that there’s only a thin line that remains between slutty and sexy. On these occasions, you can always wear a complementing cami underneath the dress. Also, never underestimate the need to wear a perfectly-fitted bra under these dresses.
Suit Up – Fit and color is everything when you’re buying a suit.
Sure, it isn’t easy to dress up when your choice is so restricted by age-specific denominators. But now that you know how you can explore your choices the right way, you can definitely go beyond the staple boring colors like gray when looking for your apparels.
