Fashion Necessities For Every Age

Gossip Girl actress Leighton Meester recently said in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar: “Any fear of aging, I think, is simply vanity. What comes with age are so many wonderful things: wisdom, understanding… Every year, I’m always happy to be done with the previous age.”

Yes, ladies, we all have a fear of aging but do not let that affect your already-chic style! Do not be tempted to buy those “mom” jeans, fashionistas! That is not good for you!

Embrace your years and the years ahead of you! To all the young ones reading this, trust me chicas, don’t let aging stress you out! With age comes knowledge and a je ne sais quoi that you’ll grow to be so very appreciative of.

Aging doesn’t mean giving up on fashion, beauty or sexy. If anything, you should be even more aware of fine-tuning your personal brand to communicate who you are, what you stand for and what you want out of life! So yes darling, you can still wear those white jeans but they better flatter.

20s

Women in their twenties must break away from the childish trends but not dress so conservatively that they look like their great aunt. Experiment with fashion trends – bright colors, eccentric prints, etc. Keep it tasteful with form-fitting clothes. Take note, read the definition of tasteful. No seriously, current trends seem to lean toward hootchie fasion and that’s NOT appropriate. When you enter the workplace, as a young woman you are going to be scrutinized right off the bat not only for your perceived lack of experience but you’ll also be judged even more stringently on your appearance if you are not careful. Be very aware of building your personal brand at this age. Remember to bear in mind your industry, your position and the people who work with you. They may have different tastes in fashion than you. To sum it up, do not expose tattoos, piercings, and too much skin. You want to look dependable and mature enough to handle your job.

30s

Penelope Cruz


Select clothes that are durable and comfortable but do not fall for the tracksuit even if it is Juicy Couture. Women find it difficult to shop for clothes that are appropriate for their age. This is an age when you begin to invest in your long-term fashion pieces. Look for killer sales on couture that will last you a life time, fill in your wardrobe basics and fine-tune your personal brand with your unique taste.

Avoid shapeless clothes! Embrace your curves, fashionistas; but, keep it stylish and do not expose too much. Do not be too trendy when it comes to apparel and accessories. Wear at least one trendy piece and pair it with a classic.

40s

Nicole Kidman


At this age, women should know what their style is. They know what they want and how they like to dress. If they follow a fashion trend, they pick and choose elements of that fashion trend and they do not go overboard. Keep your clothes tailored but not too form-fitting – show off your best assets! Clean, classy, and sophisticated is what you are looking for!

50s

Madonna


Extreme fashions seen on younger girls are not easily duplicated by older women, but they can be easily modified. For example, instead of selecting a lingerie-like blouse or dress, go for a blouse or dress with a conservative cut but with lace and satin detailing. Shop for dark jeans with a trouser cut as it is generally more slimming and age-appropriate. Dress it up with a chunky bracelet or necklace and a large satchel.

Now you know how to keep it fashionable as the years go by. It’s not about vanity, ladies! It’s about remaining confident! Strut down that sidewalk in your pencil skirt, blouse, and heels and go on with life in stride!
