Trends Work at Any Age

For many women, wearing the latest fashion trends can feel daunting. On one hand, we want to wear clothes that make us feel simply fabulous, on the other hand, we’re afraid that we cannot pull off certain trends or that we can’t make a certain look happen. The good news is that we can wear almost any trend we’d like, as long as we choose clothes that flatter our figures and don’t make us appear as if we’re trying to look too young. Here are some general fashion tips to guide and inspire.

1- Keep the Fit in Mind

Many trends can run the gamut from too tight to too loose. Regardless of your age and fitness level, you should always opt for fashions that are a little loose. Try wearing a fabulous a-line skirt, v-neck cotton blouses, layerable vests, and shift dresses. Wear your clothes – don’t let them wear you.

2- Learn to Love Prints

Printed dresses and blouses really add something special to jeans or solid colored skirts. Stock up on a variety of prints in florals, paisleys, polka dots, stripes, and graphic prints. You don’t have to go with dark prints, you could try more vivid styles in pinks, reds, lavenders, and blues. The real beauty of prints is that there are no rules.

3- Embrace Accessories

Every fashionista loves to enhance her style options with incredible accessories. Women in their teens and twenties gravitate to fun and youthful styles, such as chunky accessories, bright colors, and edgy jewels. Women in their 30s and 4os prefer classic styles like faux leather handbags, comfy pumps, and simple metallic jewelry pieces in gold or silver. Women in their 50s have spent decades honing their style, and they know what they like. Maybe that’s why they tend to stick with classics with a twist?  They like to pair a pearl necklace with a sparkly pendant or a luxe cashmere scarf with a houndstooth fedora.
