Just because you’re no longer in your thirties and forties, doesn’t mean that you can’t turn heads with your fashion choices. After all, Monica Bellucci, who recently starred as a Bond girl, is in her 50s and has never looked better and Dame Helen Mirren whose in her 70s, often wins best dressed awards for her red carpet looks. Beating out starlets half her age. To discover how to take your everyday outfits to the next level, simply continue reading.
Every woman needs a “go to” dress in her wardrobe that makes her feel drop dead beautiful. Make sure to choose a dress that accentuates your favorite body parts. As an example, whilst you may no longer feel comfortable in a glitzy mini dress, you may feel confident in a black, wrap style dress which accentuates your narrow waist. Or you may feel gorgeous in an easy breezy, shift style, floral dress. Once you’ve found the perfect dress, don’t save it for special occasions, instead wear it out to lunch with friends or on your next date night.
One fun way to add a little extra style to your everyday outfits is to stock up on luxurious accessories. As an example, if you’re looking for a fashionable way to keep warm during winter, you may be interested in purchasing a bright pair of possum merino silk gloves. Possum merino silk gloves are incredibly soft as well as stylish.
An easy way to turn heads and to attract compliments, at any age, is to purchase a matte lipstick, in a bold shade. As an example, Beauty Bakerie has recently taken the beauty world by storm as they have released a collection of matte lipsticks which will stay in place, all day long. Even after eating greasy food or kissing your husband good night. Better yet, Tina Knowles’ Beyoncé’s stylish mother is a huge fan of Beauty Bakerie.
Whilst in your youth you may have spent several pay checks purchasing cheap handbags, once you reach your fifties and have a higher disposable income, it’s well worth purchasing a classic handbag, that you’ll use every day. You can’t go wrong opting for a classic brown leather bag or splashing out on a Louis Vuitton Neverfull. After all, who has the time of energy to spend shifting your everyday items such as your purse, house keys and smart phone from one handbag to another.
So what are you waiting for? You’ll never be as young as you are today, so it’s well worth splurging on a few new pieces that will add a little extra style to your wardrobe.
