  1. As a MSP SYSter, do you follow style advice for dressing "age appropriate"? What do you still wear, and what do you no longer wear now as an "older woman". In other words, how has your style changed (or evolved) over the years?
    I recently found an old post (written in 2011) about dressing age appropriate. Do you agree with my suggestions, or have some things changed since then? Share your thoughts here. It will be interesting to see how we all see things in 2019. Thanks in advance for sharing!
    Love, Leslie MSP

  1. Thanks for bringing this topic up! At work we were just talking about women that are older but dress too young. While we all seemed to agree dressing too young looks desperate, it's really an individualized thing. Some older women can pull off trends better than others. That's just my 2 cents. I guess it means to tread carefully when you are older because it's always better to dress classy. I'm over 50 and I feel better in classic styles vs. the trendy ones. Julie

  2. Your suggestions continue to hold true, and I'd also include a switch to longer sleeve length, such as a short-sleeved tee rather than a tank top.

  3. I like a classical look and leave the trends to my grand-daughters. I agree with Sandy about sleeve lengths. I no longer wear tanks unless I have a sleeved top over them. This is such an individual thing and I can't help remembering the old saying about "lamb dressed mutton" when it comes to clothes I pick out. For me comfort has become the main thing since I have aged especially when it comes to shoes.

  4. I tend to follow a classic style. I might buy something in a trendy color if, and only if, it looks good on me. I also feel designers leave out the older women. They tend to design clothes for the tall, thin, and very young.

  5. Not a term I ever use. Though maybe I was always a bit conservative. Well - there was the tiger print dress... Anyway what I do now is cover up anything I don't like the look of, and otherwise wear what I like. Pick and choose from fashions of the day. Interesting earrings etc.

  6. My body hasn't seen a pair of hot pants in a long time! For me it is more of a shape thing, than age. I am no longer built like a clothes hanger with pipe cleaner arms. Bulges and sags just don't add to the look, so they are covered more.
