40, 50, 60? You can still look and feel fabulous!

Posted on 28/06/2012

It is sometimes difficult to face that milestone birthday! You know you still feel 20 inside, but how do you show the world that you are still fabulous?

We can get stuck in a rut with how we dress, becoming used to a certain style, maybe it is very casual, because we spend a lot of time at home, or maybe having worked for a large corporate organisation for so long dark suits and a 'professional' image are now the norm.

How do you break out of the pattern? You don't want to look like 'mutton dressed as lamb' but you do want a change.

Here is a starting point. Think about some of these areas.

  • Take a little time to think about your true personality - how much does this shine through in what you wear?
    • If you could choose any style (if you were brave enough!) what would it be?
    • Maybe classic or dramatic or creative maybe a little quirky?
  • Who do you know that carries off this style really well, it maybe a celebrity or possibly someone you know. Take a look at what they wear, how could you adapt this look for your own personality and body shape?
  • What colours do you wear? Do you stick to the same set of colours all the time? Do you wear a lot of black - why is that? Is it about confidence or just an easy life?

Now time for a little action!

  • Go out shopping, take a friend who will be really honest with you and try on lots of clothes
    • Try things that you have never considered before
    • Remember that some things that don't look great on the hanger can sometimes surprise you and look fabulous on! (this of course works the other way too!)
    • Try colours you haven't worn before - look at your face when you try a different colour - does it make you look healthy and your eyes sparkle or does it quite frankly make you look ill??
  • Remember accessories, they can make a huge difference to your look
    • Try jewellery, scarves, belts, hats, with your outfit, have fun experimenting
    • Keep all your accessories in line with your body scale so as not to over whelm
    • Think about how you can express your personality through your accessories

It is always good to get professional advice, so if you would like to know more about what colours and styles will make you look fabulous for who you are NOW! Give me a call on 07742 445243 I would love to speak with you.
