Is cold weather still your style challenge?

At the end of winter, it seems like everyone feels the style winter boredom. You are wearing the same coat over and over again since fall. You searched the January sales, but you didn’t find anything left that seemed worth your money? You are so sick of the painful cold and feel like being caught up in a style rut? If these challenges sound familiar and you missed my post How to maintain great style in painful cold, you may find some solutions for the problem.

You can learn to look effortlessly chic at any age

Second up were 41 secrets to look effortlessly chic. Effortless looks are very challenging, but you can get there with the right tools. It’s important to not overdo it. That would look the contrary, namely like trying too hard. Trying too hard in looking effortlessly stylish is nearly as bad as not trying at all. Remember:

Effortlessly chic is a balance act. #quote #agelessstyle Click To Tweet

A big part of effortless style is to know what to wear when. My style recipe book How to dress for success in midlife addresses this challenge. You can buy it at the link.

Women in midlife love fashion trends too

It’s a shame that so many magazines, articles in newspapers, even many people in the public have the perception that midlife women are too old for trends, shouldn’t wear them, bla bla bla, …. Replace the blas with the perception that the last time blew your hat off. On the contrary, women in midlife can wear trends as well as young women can. Maybe even better. We have seen trends coming and going. When we weren’t too busy with other things when that trend was around, we remember the trends that looked plain ridiculous once the season was over. We may even recall which trend was just a summer love.

Identify trends to skip or trends worth only a couple of dollars

Of course, both of these trends are the ones you don’t want to spend big money on. Probably it’s best to skip the first. Only spend a few dollar’s on the second, and only, if you fall in love for a summer again.

Some trends are Must-haves for a modern midlife woman
Of course distinguishing between great trends to up your wardrobe for a modern,fresh,young and hip look is a challenge many women face in midlife. Mostly, because they were so busy juggling a career, raising kids, nurturing a family, managing a household and keeping the yard and house up that there was not much room to pay attention to fashion, style and trends. When you are one of those or when you missed February’s most liked post, you can check out the latest trends of the upcoming season at the link.
