Growing Old In Style. It's The Modern Way.

If the eighties, nineties and noughties were all about trying to defy your age, then the latest trend definitely breaks the rules because the modern thing is all about embracing your age. Instead of trying to lie to the world by failing to convince them you are still in your thirties, the modern thing is to have people know you are forty or fifty or sixty, but still look absolutely incredible. 

Of course, knowing this is what you want to do is one thing, but actually knowing how to embrace your transition through the ages is something else entirely. It is knowing how to age in style, and that is exactly what we hope to help with.

Read on for our top tips on ageing in style:

1. Classics Are Essential
If there is one rule you need to embrace it’s this: dressing young will not make you look young. Not at all. Now, this may sound simple, but you may find there are a few hurdles known as trends that obscure what’s appropriate and what’s not. To play it safe and stylish, our advice would be to dress classically. That’s has always been - and will always be - a timeless look. How do you do this? Invest in a few expensive but classic pieces. Trust us, have these in your closet and you’ll be a contender for best dressed in the room more often than not. 

2. Know Where To Shop
It is much easier to embrace a certain style when you can rely on a certain shop or store to always deliver sizes and styles that work for you. If you’re looking at a blank canvas on this front, then a great place to start is with fashion magazines aimed at the older woman, publications like Real Simple, Oprah and, yes, Sensationally Sexy & Over 60. All of these will point you to things like the Comptoir Des Cotonniers, Reiss and Ruby Rd clothing collections. Knowing where to shop is just as important as knowing how to shop, remember that. 

3. Shape Is Everything
There are certain things that embrace shape that will never-ever go out of style. Things like a shift dress that can be worn in so many different ways and a trouser suit that can be dressed up or down and kept modern with the simplest of adjustments on the accessory front. These are classic shapes and classics shapes are what you want in your closet. 

4. Set Your Heart On Shoes
Let’s get one thing cleared up nice and fast: you are never too old for a breath-taking pair of shoes. Never. 

5. The Definition Of Appropriate...
Is not showing too much skin. Anywhere. That means legs, arms and cleavage. That’s what appropriate means in this context - it’s as simple as that. Now, we’re not saying you need to hide yourself because you can still be sexy and not show skin. It’s just knowing that skirts should sit at the knee down, cleavage needs to be carefully considered and, whether you like it or not, our arms are not bottles of Burgundy wine -they don’t get better with age.
