Your age should reflect what decade you fall into in the fashion world. Your closet should reflect who you are as a person, who’s your favorite designer, and your age. People should know how old you are by the way you dress. Don’t think just because you’re in your 50s that you have to dress like you’re running for congress, it just means people should differentiate between you and your 20 year old daughter.
The 20s are for you to experiment. You can basically wear anything at this age — it’s your prime years and you should take fashion risks. Your closet should be youthful, bright with shapes, and of course classics.
The 30s are when you feel the most confident in what you wear. Your risk in fashion should be taken down a notch compared to your 20s. You should know what makes you feel comfortable and what your body looks good in. Your outfit you should reflect your strengths and how powerful you are. Your closet should be classic but with a touch of something that pops. These are the years for patterns, for classics, and to be sophisticated.
Your 40s are when you have everything down pat. You’ve worked hard, so you should enjoy these years as much as possible. Now you can afford to open your wallet a little bit more and spend for the pieces you would have never worn when you were younger. You know exactly what your looking for as soon as you walk into a store and you can tell when an piece is on a rack how it’s gonna reflect your body type. Your closet should consist of clean lines with gorgeous restraint.
The 50s are for you to be a little trendy and a little risky, and it should reflect your closet when you were in your 30s. A lot of women are body conscious when it comes to this age so they want to look young, just make sure you don’t look too young! You want to be conservative with a slight sex appeal. Knit dresses, funky patterns, and dresses that show off your curves are your best friend.
“Age? Sure, It’s just a number. But that doesn’t mean you should pretend you’re a number you’re not. Dressing like a club-hopper when you’re a woman of substance undermines your own power. Being a conformist when you’re in your 20s would be a sin.” – Vogue Magazine
