Style tips for dressing your age

*Affiliate Link.

 

Fashion and style is a very personal thing. We all have our own individual sense of style, which usually changes with age and lifestyle situations. I am all for dressing your age. The whole style/fashion has no age doesn’t really make sense to me. I believe both women and men should dress appropriately for the event and their stage in life. A 30-year-old would look ridiculous wearing Jojo Siwa Bows, but the Bows would look great on a 5-year-old.

Here are some top style tips for dressing your age –

 

Leave a lot to the imagination

There is a thin line between looking sexy and looking trashy. I usually stay off revealing clothing. It has never really been my style, and as I grow older, I find myself staying away from clothing that reveal too much flesh. A bit of legs and shoulders here and there is all good, as far as they are not both on display at the same time. Some women like revealing cleavage too! That works if it is done tastefully. The rule says do not display your cleavage and legs at the same time. So before you leave the house, take a final look at your outfit to ensure you leave a bit more to the imagination.

 

Pay attention to your colours

I like to wear colours every now and again, especially in the spring/summer months. However, the more I grow, the more I stay away from a rocking a bright outfit. I like to inject some colour in my outfit with colourful accessories, that way the overall look of the outfit is balanced out.

 

Confidence

Being confident is very important. I like to feel comfortable in my outfit as comfort helps me stay confident. Age has made me more confident, and dressing appropriately helps me feel better about myself.

Giveaway – WIN Buckley London Finsbury Earrings

Hey fashion lovers! This post is for the fashion and jewellery lovers. My giveaway post for the year is this Buckley London Finsbury Earrings worth £25 from House of Fraser! I love the earrings. I have a pair myself and it is a beautiful set of earrings that combines classic with modern.

The stunning two part earrings are gold plated and embellished with beautiful white crystals. The design got my eye immediately with the triangular stud front, and the curved fin lower part. I think it is such a delicate beauty. Do you agree? The earring size is 20 x 15mm, and I think it is the perfect size for anyone in search of a cute set of earrings.

Transitioning Your Child’s Wardrobe from Summer to Winter

I like going through the kiddies wardrobe every 3 months. That way I get to take out clothing that no longer fits or items that no longer look good. This allows me to ensure they have all they need for the new time of year. I usually do this at the start of a new season, so if there are gaps to fill, I get them filled as soon as possible.

A few weeks ago, I transitioned my children’s wardrobe from Summer to Winter. It was a lot of fun for me to do as always. One of my favourite jobs is sorting wardrobes out, which kind of explains why I wanted to pursue a career in fashion styling, but that is a story for another day.

The kiddies have their Winter wardrobe ready transitioned! Ready for the colder months! So, we said goodbye to some of the Summery pieces and hello to the Autumn/Winter wardrobe. All the warmer clothing and footwear are in place ready to be worn, and the kiddies are loving their new pieces and the new way of styling them.

 

If you are thinking of sorting your child’s ware out for the new season, then you are reading the right post. Here are 4 easy ways of transitioning your child’s wardrobe from Summer to Winter –

 

Transitioning Your Child’s Wardrobe from Summer to Winter

 

Check what you need

The first part of transitioning is to check what your child needs. It makes no sense duplicating pieces or buying clothing that is not needed. Once you have gone through the wardrobe, then you will see where the gaps are and how to go about shopping for them. Some great piece’s I have started with are from the Children’s Designerwear by Strawberry Children. It is a great high-end fashion children’s clothing store with so many stylish pieces for both boys and girls.

 

Get the layers ready

Having layers ready is a great way to ensure your children look stylish and comfy this season. I like to ensure my kids have light layers to complement some of their clothing. So, boleros, cardigans, waist coats, sweaters in various colours and designs must be in place. That way, they can still wear some of their Summer pieces like light shirts and dresses in the Autumn/Winter months. The kids outgrow their clothes so quickly so being able to wear the most of their clothes is also good value for money.

 

Shop for Winter staple pieces

I like to shop for Winter staple pieces and get them ready in time for the season. These include; thick tights, woolly hats, gloves, scarves and coats. It is smart to have a couple of these items as tights tend to rip quite quickly, and gloves and hats usually grow wings, especially with kids at school.

Invest in great footwear

It makes sense to invest in great footwear for your children especially in the colder months with the snow and icy roads. Summer footwear is not appropriate, so it is time to make way for the boots, wellies, and trainers to ensure maximum comfort. It might be worth having their feet measured before buying any footwear, just so you get the right sizes.
