Wearing Trends At Midlife With Class
As women enter midlife, their personal style undergoes a natural evolution. While trends may seem tailored towards younger generations, there is no reason why a woman at midlife can’t embrace them in an appropriate and classy way. I LOVE most trends and am always watching! In this blog post I’m sharing tips on how to incorporate trends into your wardrobe, and still look classy.
The versatility of my TIERED SHEER PANEL SKIRT (pictured), spans across age groups, appealing to women from sixteen to ninety years old. Indeed, the sheered look trend has been super popular, and despite previous unsuccessful attempts, I have finally found success in this one. First, I paired it with a modest black lace top and comfortable espadrilles, and second, with a vibrant colored tee and neon slides. Both outfits are age appropriate!
MY FOUR TIPS TO WEARING TRENDS AND MAINTAIN CLASS
1. KNOW YOUR PERSONAL STYLE. It’s important to have a strong sense of who you are and what works for you! Think about body-type, your most flattering colors, and lifestyle. By understanding your uniqueness, you can pick trends that align with your overall aesthetic. Remember, timeless classics can be complemented by carefully chosen trendy pieces to create a balanced and sophisticated look.
2. MIX TRENDS SELECTIVELY. Rather than embracing every trend that comes along, choose those that only make sense for you. Opt for trends that are versatile, flattering, and that meet your comfort level. For example, if animal prints are popular, consider a tasteful leopard-print scarf or belt as an accent piece. Incorporating trends in smaller doses will ensure they enhance your outfit and not overpower it!
3. MIX TRENDS WITH CLASSICS. The key to wearing trends at midlife in my opinion, is to pair them with timeless classics. Invest in high-quality basics like a tailored blazer, or well-fitted jeans, and versatile dresses that will never go out of style. Then use these trends to incorporate into your outfits. For instance, pair a classic white blouse with trendy pair of wide-leg jeans. Or you could style a statement accessory with a classic black dress. This combination allows you to stay current while maintaining an elegant and timeless look.
4. PRIORITIZE QUALITY AND FIT. As we age, investing in well-made, high-quality clothing becomes even more important. Particularly pay attention to the fit, fabric, and how well the clothing is made. Choose pieces that flatter your figure and are comfy! Indeed by prioritizing quality, you’ll create a polished look that transcends trends. Timeless pieces that are well-made will always speak elegance, regardless of current fashion trends.
