What’s with floral petticoats and headgear just because you have stepped into your 50’s? What looks good on you one year would look outdated just because you have grown a year older is bizarre; it isn’t always this cut and dried.

If you are afraid you are going to ‘look’ old in your 50’s you most probably will. However, remember most of the time you are what you wear and the way you dress up can take off years of your actual age.

Instead of bright floral dresses, go for solid figure-hugging, knee length dresses. The lack of skin show adds a nice mature touch while subtly making you look well less than your age. You can team this up with a smart scarf and some pumps.

Have you noticed how women shift to polo t-shirts as they grow old, why on earth? It has become almost clichéd now, and no, it doesn’t help unless of course you’re off to play golf and team polo up with a smart slim-fitting pair of trousers. Stick to stripes (vertical or horizontal depending upon your body shape) and not-too-loud prints. Leave graphic t shirts with rock band emblem on it for your kids.

For a formal look, try pencil skirts and crisp fitting suits. There’s nothing more alluring than power radiating from the way you dress. Don’t forget that accessories make up for 40% of your overall look, so invest in good handbags, classy jewelry, original scarves and comfortable shoes.

Pullovers again are great, team them up with a string of pearls. Keep a tab on your neck and hem line, the former shouldn’t be too low and the latter too high. Wrap around dresses, handkerchief skirts, and maxi dresses are safe bets for any age.

Scarves should be a patent in your wardrobe considering its versatility. Whether you want to add a splurge of color to your outfit or go semi-formal, scarves can be easily manipulated to suit the look. Cotton, and polyester are best for regular wear while if you’re looking for exquisite gifts items, try pashmina and silk scarves, these are known for their opulence and delicate soft fabric.

Faux fur jackets in hot pink are such a disaster at any age. Trench coats, slim-fitting jackets, cardigans, pea coat, and shawls are some winter accessories you can stock up on.

The number one rule to looking young at any age is to stay fit. Workout regularly and keep a check on those junk food cravings.

Wishing you a great Holiday Season,

The way you dress up creates an impression even before you speak a word. Where crisp, business outfits play a dominating role in creating a professional look, your accessories can either make or break that look.

businessLess is more– Never over-do the look with a jumble of accessories. Stick to a small pendant or tear drop earrings instead of big hoops. Also, if you plan to wear a waist-enhancing belt over your suit or dress, make sure it is not flashy and overly large. The clients or colleagues should take in your appearance as a whole and not focus on a loud piece of accessory first. Avoid accessories, especially jewellery that clink and clatter, as it makes you look unorganized and not in control. Go for pearl over silver or brass, pearl also has an elegant touch to it.

Wear proper shoes- Shoes say a lot about you, and whether you are dressed in trousers or skirt, getting the right pair is essential. Steer clear of anything that has a casual appeal; sandals, knee-high boots, or sequenced shoes are oh so wrong. A pair of solid pumps is an ideal choice, but if you are partial to flats, try going for ballet flat in black.

Keep the handbags simple- Whether you want to mix-and-match with your attire, or bring in a contrast, your handbag should be nothing flashy. Stick to the basic brown, beige, or black and make sure it is multi-functional so that you don’t need to carry stuff in your hand.

business-2Scarf it up- Scarves help to break the monotone of an office outfit, but without becoming too overbearing. Go for simpler patterns and avoid the flashy ones. Silk scarves are a better option as they have a rich feel to them and instantly add a touch of opulence to your attire. Keep in mind that silk scarves are also great for those who have metal allergy and have to stay away from basic jewelry.

Impress the olfactory senses- Not a lot of people pay attention to their choice of perfume or cologne while preparing for business meetings. Go for musk over floral tones. Also, do not bathe in perfume if you don’t want to suffocate your prospective business partners or clients.

A quick tip from WomenClothingToday- Never fidget or play with your accessories, if you are one to do so, lightly clamp your hands together and keep it on your lap.

To your success!

Like diamonds, hand painted silk scarves are forever. I happened to meet a lady in her mid 40’s at the Museum of Modern art in Vienna on one of my recent visits there. She was visibly impressed and enthralled by the works of Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns, and Claes Oldenburg. In fact, classical Modern works of art by Piet Mondrian and Pablo Picasso held her spellbound. At the end of the tour, she turned sad and said, “I wish I could take these paintings home because I found my share of peace by simply looking at the paintings.” I said, “Did you know that now you can wear beautifully created art in the form of silk scarves?” She said, “No, does something like that exist?” That was the beginning of a long conversation.

After a few months, she called me up to tell me how her life has changed thanks to the hand painted silk scarves. How she found her share of peace in the several shades of blue, red, orange, and green. How much she loves the paintings on the scarves and how it has affected her personality, attitude, and behaviour in a positive manner.
