Style & Age

A question and concern I often hear as a personal stylist is the issue of age-appropriate dressing. Women don’t want to look like they are trying to be 21 again, but they also don’t want to look matronly. So how do you look your age and have a sense of style?

I think it comes down to style over fashion. Fashion is trendy, here today gone tomorrow – it is fast and fleeting. Style is timeless and sticks with you through any age. If you are classic at 21 – you can be classic at 51, if you avant-garde at 23 – you can be avant-garde at 53, if you are feminine and colorful at 25 – you can be feminine and colorful at 55.

These three women embrace their age, but they also embrace their style. They aren’t afraid to be who they are and dress the way they want. The older you get the better – you know yourself, you have conquered amazing and wonderful things and you have had time to collect pieces that will stay with you for a lifetime.

Be a style-setter at any age.

    interesting post, B.jones! I agree with you, it’s a question of style not fashion. having lived a life and grown past the insecurities every one faces at a certain age, and even longer. which results in confidence that is evident in every picture in this post. especially catherine baba’s sassy attitude! (that actually reminds me of my mother,haha)
    have a great weekend!

    Love this post, these women are gorgeous! I hope that I am able to hold onto my sense of style with an ounce of the class these ladies have. These are perfect images of graceful aging.
