Here is a great fashion question from one of our readers:
Dear Deb, I’m told my current handbag looks “old lady” and I need a new one. How do I know which ones are dated looking and which ones are considered more youthful…..Thanks! Leslie
|Hi Leslie, Here are some examples:This bag on the left is too stiff and old lady like, plus it’s boring beige.See how the bag on the right is more relaxed and soft. That’s what you want. Soft is youthful and the color adds life!|
|You see these bags like this one the left all the time on older women. These bags look heavy and tired. Do you want to look heavy and tired too?Try shiny black patent leather with white piping instead for a fresher, up to date look. (Black House White Market)|
|Patchwork may be in, but over 40, sorry, it looks like you’ve taken up quilting.Try a single bright pop of color with a classy touch of hardware for a more powerful chic look. (Saks)|
|Red is always cheery and can be sporty mixed with tan or brown, but this bag on the left has a boring shape making it look ho-hum.Instead,try this cute one on the right. It’s got a less uptight shape, is also more matte, so more sporty and the tassels are a great stylish. Tally ho! (Nordstroms)|
