Our bodies, faces and lifestyles have changed over the decades. However, our fashion choices haven’t always kept up. We just need a few guidelines to great style.
Dark denim, mid-rise, boot-cut jeans. The boot-cut hem leaves room for booties (a footwear option for almost every occasion).
Dark denim, mid-rise, straight-leg jeans. Dark blue denim pairs well with flat ballet slippers, moccasins, loafers or kitten heels, and tuck them into tall boots in cooler weather. Straight-leg jeans go perfectly with longer jackets or tunic tops.
White jeans (boot cut or straight-let). Wear with wedge sandals and tunic tops or a crisp navy jacket and white tank. When it gets cooler, pair with brown or black boots and a sweater or jacket, and a scarf. Wear underwear that matches your skin color with white pants.
Great-fitting pants. Look for a lightweight wool blend in black, charcoal or navy. Wear with a silky blouse, a T-shirt or a tank with a cardigan or jacket.
Black fitted jacket. Short and snug (not tight) that hits at the hips are a great look. Black is most versatile, but consider navy and cream, too. Wear with jeans, skirts, dresses, pants – anything. Wear tanks, T’s and jewel-colored blouses underneath.
Black pencil skirt. Wear it to the knee, and make sure it has a little stretch and some draping but is not tight. Pair with black tights and booties, or patent-leather pumps for night.
