Yep, I’m going there. However not the way you assume.
I’ve thought lengthy and arduous about how you can write this submit with out ‘yucking on another person’s yum” and I don’t prefer to s*$t on one other girl simply doing what she thinks is true, however I noticed a caption on social media the opposite that REALLY aggravated me.
It was one other stylist principally telling everybody to put on the identical factor. She had a go at “shiny colors and kooky prints” , calling them outdated and outdated and just about stated everybody ought to put on outsized neutrals. and it received my again up.
I didn’t like being advised that there was solely ONE look that was ‘cool’.
That my love of color and print is one way or the other ‘much less fashionable” than greys and blacks.
SO It made me assume, I needed to write down my very own checklist of issues that you need to be excited about whenever you dress, and notice, this doesn’t apply to simply us over 4o’s – this is applicable to everybody (however I needed to write down a click-bait headline so that you’d learn the weblog haha!)
1 Put on garments that carry you JOY!
Who cares in the event that they aren’t ‘in trend’. Should you love color, and it makes you are feeling good, put on it! If loopy prints make you smile, rock them each single day lady!
Solely put on issues that provide you with that heat fuzzy feeling inside – be it black and gray, or denims and jumper, or sequins and heels! So long as it makes you are feeling good, that’s all that issues.
2. Costume for YOU, not anybody else
I feel that’s what aggravated me about that social submit the opposite day…. this stylist was telling us what SHE liked to put on, and what she thought was ‘cool’. Nice! Should you actually love that look, put on it, however don’t put on a pattern as a result of another person advised you to.
And for that matter, don’t cease sporting one thing that another person doesn’t like – what you put on is your corporation and ONLY your corporation. Nobody else will get a say, and also you don’t have to impress anybody else.
3. Put on garments that FIT you nicely
Ignore the quantity. If it’s important to go UP to get the match proper, then get the match proper. Should you go down a measurement, does it look good? Or are you simply happening a measurement to honour some form of false magnificence customary that smaller is best?
Take note of how issues suit you – are these skinny denims uncomfortable your tummy? strive a large leg pant. However for those who ROCK your skinny denims and so they look superb, maintain rocking them.
4. Put on good (and supportive) underwear
Good supportive underwear can utterly change not solely your outfit, however your posture and confidence! Get correctly fitted on your bras at the very least every year (they’ll actually stretch out and cease providing as a lot help for those who flog them like I do!).
Put on lingerie which can be snug, and that breathe. My largest underwear tip is to put on lingerie that sit on the identical peak because the waistband you’re sporting. It offers an important line, you’ll really feel supported and garments will look higher.
5. Put on tendencies, ONLY in the event that they work on your distinctive type
Now I really like a pattern as a lot as the subsequent stylist (hiya neon for Spring, however that’s one other weblog), but when the pattern don’t match into your distinctive private type, you don’t need to do it!
So a lot of my shoppers are fearful about not “trying cool” of their skinny denims as a result of some Gen Z made a tiktok about how straight leg denims are in, and skinnies are out. Bugger that! Put on what YOU love!
On the flip-side, if a pattern actually talks to your sense of fashion, GREAT! go for it! work it into your on a regular basis seems to be and get pleasure out of it.
Now I hope you don’t really feel like I’m now being patronising (like I discovered the social media stylist) by telling you what to put on. However finally, it’s so simple as this….
