Let’s talk about dressing your age. Remember that old expression “mutton dressed as lamb”? It’s pretty safe to assume most women over 50 don’t want to be seen that way. Are there rules we should be adhering too? What does it mean to dress your age?
Dressing your age is each person’s subjective opinion of what’s appropriate attire. Lists abound of what we shouldn’t wear after a certain age and women are offended by them.
I never think about dressing my age but you won’t find me wearing short shorts or naval bearing tops. That look doesn’t send the message I want my appearance to convey. Like it or not, what we wear tells the world who we are.
It’s important to understand who you are and what kind of message you want your appearance to send. Choose garments that make you feel confident and amazing. If you put something on and feel silly, awkward, or uncomfortable in it, that’s a good signal it’s probably not right for you. Listen to your instincts.
On our last day in Mexico, I wore another cotton skirt and sun hat. I wanted my appearance to say I took time with my appearance and looked elegantly, casual.
Should we be concerned about dressing our age?

I want women to look and feel their best, and that means dressing to feel confident.
Thanks for reading and remember to wear what makes you feel confident.
