What SYSters Are Saying

"Love seeing pictures of you"...

I just want to thank you for the pictures of yourself that you include with your weekly emails. It helps to see how you put clothing together. You always look nice - not overly done up - just very nice. It helps to see how a normal person looks, as opposed to a model. :) Susan P


Leslie Answers Your Style Questions...

DEAR MSP: What styles do older retired women wear? i am 65 ,live in a small town and I am retired .i currently wear jeans and t-shirts .i want to dress better without looking overdone..thank you. Elaine


Dear Elaine,

Congrats on being retired! Your lifestyle at this point in life is probably based more on comfort and keeping things simple. No more "dressing up" for work or investing in an expensive wardrobe to keep employment! Those days are over.

Celebrate your "relaxed" lifestyle by adding just a bit more style to your "jeans and t-shirt" uniform. Jeans and t-shirts all the time can get boring and well, they lack style...so dress 'em up!

Add a "completer" piece...this means a stylish/colorful jacket or sweater (or other 3rd piece like a scarf or vest). It also means enjoying accessories with every outfit. Find out what accessories you love the most and make them your "signature style". For example, if you love dangle earrings...wear the cutest dangle earrings ever! Look for ones that really celebrate your style! You may love handbags, shoes or statement brooches or necklaces or scarves. Figure out how YOU are going to express your style by adding some "fun" to your daily jeans and tees! Don't leave home without your touch of "fun" on!

Love, Leslie MSP

Simple slacks and basic sweater become "casual chic" when you add accessories (in this case, a red scarf and bangle bracelets)...
