Yes, you can be stylish at any age! You can be sizzling at 46 or like an out-of-tune train wreck at 26. Age has nothing to do with physical shape, spirit, or the desire to move forward and stay vital. There are 50-year-olds who can look hot in short skirts and 25 year olds who carry themselves like Great Aunt Tilly, the poor things.
My personal belief is to forget about the year you were born and dress for the physical shape you are in today. Dwelling on your chronological age and obsessing about self-imposed fashion rules is positively stupid and aging. Get a life and you'll enjoy life, and you'll look better for it! If classic is your thing, keep it fresh. Pick pieces that reflect your personality instead of following some social sense of what's 'right.' Today it's appropriate to wear jeans with vintage pieces and evening bag. Classic doesn't have to imply plain - it's all in the pieces you go for and how you put them together.
Just look at the classic chic way a French woman recognizes just how to wear a blazer. Appear professional when the occasion calls for it and look stylishly casual for the weekend. At anytime, you can choose between Girl's Clothes or Dude's Clothes (but never if you are a straight man). Still, never fall prey to being caught in a fashion rut because you are afraid to experiment with something new - that will surely put years on your appearance and even bore the Peter Pan collars out of your closet! It's better to take the risk than to be fashionably dormant and dull. Now let's get back to short skirts, t-shirts, accessories and jewellery ? all that! You may think that could fit only a teenager. Well.
You`re right! I was once dumbstruck when a 50-ish publicist showed up at a get-to-meet-you TV producer's meeting in a skirt that barely covered her pupick. She had just had liposuction was thrilled with her new figure, but first off a skirt that miniscule is just wrong for a serious meeting and even more so with bare legs and high heels. Then there was the rest of her? she just looked like a desperate attempt to regain her youth that the end result was embarrassing and aging.
When it comes to fashion trends, become a master at tweaking them and dissecting the right amount of nuance which flatters you. If there's trend that you love, but honestly feel like you've missed its prime? skip it. When a style trend reappears that you have clearly worn 15 or 20 years ago, rethink it and reinterpret it with just one addition to your wardrobe rather than the full-on retro effect. Keep up your skin care regime, don't forget an up to date haircut, stay true to your personal style, and not take yourself too seriously. Who says you need to always dress classically when your style is a bit more downtown or bohemian? You need to dress in a way that flatters your figure and individual style, not your friend's personal taste.
Whenever you run out of ideas, you can always switch on the TV and you can watch some fashion designers or some fashion high scored new artists or bands. Oh! And don`t forget to shop at least once (ok, twice) a week!.
