By my age, my Granny wore a gray bun that she had “done” at the beauty parlor every Monday, wore bifocal eyeglasses in the same frame shape as my Grandfather and lived in flowered house dresses. She never plucked her growing mustache and looked 20 years older than she was. That may have been a sign of the times then, but I’m glad things have changed.
Just because I’m 60 and a Granny doesn’t mean I want to look dated or frumpy.
Welcome to this week’s Hit Your Style Sweet Spot, my weekly collaboration with Pam Lutrell. You’ve hit your Style Sweet Spot when your appearance is sending the message you intend, and you feel confident that you look your best. This week we’re showing how we look sharp as a grandmother.
I prefer to look modern and wear ageless styles with a touch of sass. I pulled out this Faux Fur vest from years ago because it’s back on trend.
My body is narrower on the bottom so skinny jeans work for me. I love the look of leggings tucked into knee boots and these Jag Nora Skinny jeans are soft enough to do it too.
Their pull-on style has a hidden secret waistband that slims, flatters and gives a clean smooth look under tops. Classic 5 pocket styling without the bulk of zippers and snaps.
I like bold accessories with these classic pieces. I could style them with pearls and a cashmere sweater for a more elegant look but I was going for fun and hip. Does anyone say the word hip anymore?
These jeans have a great high rise that sits right at my waist and reduces muffin top because they don’t bind or roll. They are a rich deep indigo that’s so dark, I washed them before I wore them so the color wouldn’t transfer onto light things.
For warmer weather, I’ll style them with my suede booties.
I’m a proud Granny but don’t want to dress like an old lady. I want to look stylish and wear modern fashions that keep me looking current and with it!
In my grandmother’s day, women seemed to give up after a certain age. That’s not happening with me because I won’t let it.
This is how I hit my Style Sweet Spot to feel confident, unique and modern as a grandmother.
