How many times have you eyed something cute in the store, picked it up and wondered, “am I too old to wear that”?
It’s confusing knowing how to dress after 40 because our bodies have changed, our lifestyles have changed and there are no role models out there to help us determine what to wear, or what not to wear at this stage of life.
Is there such a thing as age-appropriate dressing, or is this an outdated notion? How do you determine what makes you look fab vs. what make you look desperate?
Recently I was a guest on a lively google hangout hosted by the WHOA network where top 40+ fashion bloggers discussed these interesting questions. The bloggers included: Sylvia van de Logt from 40+ Style, Shelley Zurek from Still Blonde after All These Years, Oceana Loft from Oceana’s Canvas and myself, Deborah Boland.
Check out our conversation. It was a lot of fun!
If you haven’t heard of the WHOA Network it is dedicated to Women Honoring Their Age. Lynn Hunt and Darryle Pollack are the founders of the network that has this simple concept at its core: women should be seen and heard at every age and valued more as we get older, not less.
