Are you retired and think, “I no longer go out to business so I don’t need to dress up or buy new clothes. I can wear the old things hanging in my closet.”
Or… this scenario as I have encountered many times. “I stay at home and just go out to run errands, walk the dog or go to the gym. I live in my yoga pants.”
Maybe you haven’t changed sizes in years and therefore don’t see much reason for buying new clothes. In fact, you have held this philosophy for years. You feel your appearance is good enough.
We send messages out about ourself without ever opening our mouth. All of the above scenarios say, “I have given up. I am stuck. I am boring. I am not relevant.”
Neglecting to update your style or appearance sends a message that you no longer care about yourself.
Updating your look to be more modern and current, so you look relevant and savvy, doesn’t have to cost a lot.
It does mean your clothes should fit you well and be in colours that make you look radiant and healthy.
You can easily update your look by switching from yoga pants to comfortable jeans. Add a longer sweater over your comfortable outfit and a scarf that makes your eyes sparkle.
Take a look at Margaret in the picture below. She is wearing comfortable pants and a pullover but has added dash and youthfulness with a scarf and a cap. Margaret is 75 and caught my attention. She looks like someone I would like to get to know.
What message are you sending to those around you? Most importantly, what message are you sending to yourself?
I am passionate about helping women over 50 look current, up to date so the younger genaration knows we ARE still very relevant in society. We have experience and knowledge and wonderful stories to share.
I would love to help you make the most of the clothing you already have in your closet and bring a new life to it!
