Dress Your Age?

Hi Everyone,

I stumbled across this article earlier, which asks the question, should you dress your age, meaning should you leave "younger" styles for the younger generation?

The article has been made public by Twiggy (aged 62), and discusses the fact that "dressing your age" is not the right way towards finding your own fashion style. Breaking the rules every once in a while is what we should all be doing. Fashion is about experimentation and confidence. According to Twiggy, if you decide to wear a bright red or purple colour every day, it will look good, as long as you show confidence in your style, which is the key to success.

Anyone will believe you look good, if you choose colours which suit you, and have the confidence to wear colours such as this:

Purple River Island Dress
River Island

How do we know which colours suit us? Well we can't, really. The best way, I find, to figure that out, is to go shopping with one of my best friends, and her for her honest opinion.

If they really care about you, they will tell you if something looks bad! The fact of the matter is, if you're not an expert on fashion, or you're just not sure, a second opinion can always help.

I don't usually trust sales advisers, as they want to sell you things, however a personal shopper is not a bad road to go down. They know what they are talking about, and they will pick out styles and colours which will really suit you - which is a great starting point for anybody.

What do you think, should you dress your age?

This is all from me today.

  1. That, is a very good question. I think you should dress in clothes that are comfortable to you. As for asking a friend, are they an expert? As for Twiggy writing an article, in the sixties, she was "the" fashion icon. She was very famous but she was famous before Anorexia became a news item. She could have posed for that, and no one would have blinked an eye. is all in the eye of the beholder!

    1. I agree, friends are not necessarily the expert, but we all know experts even get it wrong sometimes.
      There is no doubt, however, that you are correct - people should wear what THEY feel comfortable in, what everybody else thinks is irrelevant!
