Yep, I’m going there. However not the way you suppose.
I’ve thought lengthy and onerous about the way to write this put up with out ‘yucking on another person’s yum” and I don’t prefer to s*$t on one other lady simply doing what she thinks is correct, however I noticed a caption on social media the opposite that REALLY irritated me.
It was one other stylist principally telling everybody to put on the identical factor. She had a go at “brilliant colors and kooky prints” , calling them outdated and outdated and just about stated everybody ought to put on outsized neutrals.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 in some way ‘much less trendy” than greys and blacks.
SO It made me suppose, I needed to jot down my very own listing of issues that try to be eager about once you dress, and notice, this doesn’t apply to simply us over 4o’s – this is applicable to everybody (however I needed to jot down a click-bait headline so that you’d learn the weblog haha!)
1 Put on garments that convey you JOY!
Who cares in the event that they aren’t ‘in vogue’. If you happen to 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 offer you 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. Gown for YOU, not anybody else
I feel that’s what irritated me about that social put up the opposite day…. this stylist was telling us what SHE liked to put on, and what she thought was ‘cool’. Nice! If you happen to actually love that look, put on it, however don’t put on a development as a result of another person advised you to.
And for that matter, don’t cease carrying one thing that another person doesn’t like – what you put on is your enterprise and ONLY your enterprise. Nobody else will get a say, and also you don’t must impress anybody else.
3. Put on garments that FIT you properly
Ignore the quantity. If you must go UP to get the match proper, then get the match proper. If you happen to go down a dimension, does it look good? Or are you simply happening a dimension to honour some type of false magnificence normal that smaller is healthier?
Take note of how issues suit you – are these skinny denims uncomfortable your tummy? strive a large leg pant. However if you happen to ROCK your skinny denims they usually look superb, preserve 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 in your bras at the least yearly (they will actually stretch out and cease providing as a lot assist if you happen to flog them like I do!).
Put on lingerie which might be comfy, and that breathe. My greatest underwear tip is to put on lingerie that sit on the similar top because the waistband you’re carrying. It provides an incredible line, you’ll really feel supported and garments will look higher.
5. Put on developments, ONLY in the event that they work in your distinctive fashion
Now I really like a development as a lot as the subsequent stylist (hiya neon for Spring, however that’s one other weblog), but when the development don’t match into your distinctive private fashion, you don’t must do it!
So lots of my shoppers are nervous about not “wanting 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 development 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….
