How to Style Your Outfit to Complement You, Your Age, and Your Lifestyle

First, let me quote a client’s daughter:  “Mom… just because you can wear something, doesn’t mean you should.”  So here are my thoughts… you can basically wear anything, but the trick is to style your outfit to complement you, your age, and your lifestyle!

With age, we get wiser in life and in our fashion sense, don’t you agree? Shoes create a big fashion statement, but the great news is we don’t have to wear high heels to look or feel young anymore.  Show me a pair of kitten or block heels, and I’ll show you ageless style! For an on-trend look, wear them with your jeans. Flats, espadrilles, and sneakers go with everything from jeans to dresses. Perfect for your active lifestyle.

If you don’t own a pair of cropped jeans or pants….you need to.  They are an excellent replacement for capris and will definitely up your style game.  We love how German lifestyle blogger, Bibi Horst shares her impeccable taste, wearing white cropped pants with an animal print blouse.  Nothing is stopping this fashion trailblazer!

And because Bibi’s style is so now, I just have to share a few more of her fabulous looks.

For example, I love how she styles a simple white blouse and jeans ensemble with a spring floral bomber jacket and strappy flats.  And she looks so put together wearing a yellow sweater and white blouse with camel slacks….styled to perfection!

Wide leg pants and crops are another way to keep current with fashion. Plus, they make for a comfy outfit when you are hanging out with your grandchildren.  To dress up a pair of white crops, add block heels and a wicker bag. For a case of less is more, think about styling a white blouse with white pants….ultra-classy!

Show me one of today’s “it” bags, and I’ll show you a way to impress your daughter!  From Staud’s clear bags to their bucket bags…get ready to make a statement!

Danse Lente contemporary bags stole the show at New York Fashion Week.  Trust me on this one….add these names to your fashion vocabulary, and next thing you know, you’ll be on your daughter’s “cool register!”

Print Mixing definitely proves that style has no age.   To accomplish this ageless look, think about pairing a printed skirt with a leopard print sweater tied around your waist.  My Pinterest board fav features a printed skirt paired with a leopard print clutch and sandals. How fun and ageless does that sound?   And I have to admit, I’m going gaga over how a mother and daughter style of a head to toe mix of print and color creates a dynamic duo!

Point proven….style really doesn’t have an age!  So, are you going to “go for it? If you need a little help…just message me!
