There are many style and fashion challenges out there for us women over 40. Thus, I asked my readers last Wednesday in my Ageless Style series what they want to see addressed. Thanks to all of you who made suggestions! They are all very appreciated! 🙂
Trends in general, and in particular from past decades like the 70s, for instance, came in high first. Quite understandable as we don’t want to look like a fashion victim and/or stuck in time or an old-fashioned style rut. 😉
Another great issue is over-the-knee boots. They are great in winter to keep the knees warm in cold climates. However, we don’t want to get into Pretty Woman territory despite we all have loved Julia Roberts wearing them in the movie, and some of us even had a tuned-down streetstyle flat version back then.
Mixing prints/pattern came in third immediately followed by make up and leather. These topics are hot and one better gets it right. Mixing prints done right look incredible stylish, but done wrong, it looks ridiculous at our age. Leather is an expensive investment. Makeup should be like the icing on the cake. We don’t want to look painted. 😉
These challenges will be addressed over the next weeks starting tomorrow with fall’s 70s trend. Thus, stay tuned. Get a subscription to my blog here to not miss out.
What are your style challenges? What do you think is the hardest/toughest thing for women our age? You can still submit your style challenge that you want to see covered in Ageless Style. Just fill out the form at the end of this post.
