Styling tips if you're in your 60s
Need some sartorial advice to help you navigate your 60s? Here are a few expert-approved tips:
- Find the most flattering fit: "dont wear clothes that dont fit. Wearing the wrong size clothes, especially if theyre too large, can make you look shapeless and older than you are, " linda peavy, the founder of cultured curves, says.
- Don't worry too much about fashion fads: "proceed with caution when dealing with trends because not every new trend works for everybody, " peavy suggests.
- Pay attention to fabrics: "many of our clients who are in their 60s are opting for fabrics and textiles that can be worn for a range of occasions. We recommend they focus on items made from high-quality fabrics such as wool, cashmere and silk, " stitch fix expert stylist jessica sockel recommends. Cotton fabrics with a hint of stretch are also worthwhile.
- Pair down your wardrobe: "consider donating it if you didnt wear it in the past year. Donate or consign it if it is two sizes smaller or larger than your current size, " peavy comments.
"as mobility becomes limited, you may want to consider adapting to a front-close [bra] style, " coco explains.
This racerback t-shirt bra is a worthy contender if you're craving comfort and class. The front closure style has a flirty lace back, stretchy foam cups and adjustable straps. Other notable features include a soft microfiber fabric and supportive double layer side wings.
