If you are a retirement age individual who has always tried to dress stylishly, you may be wondering if age will soon be a limiting factor involving fashion choices. Rest assured, there are many options where fashion for seniors is concerned. You don’t have to look like a stereotypical retiree. You can embrace your personality and body with a wide array of stylish yet comfortable clothes.
Your body is changing and will therefore have different needs and even a slightly different form. The key to fashionable attire during your retirement years is your ability to curate and adapt your wardrobe accordingly.
Is there one-size-fits-all advice when it comes to retirement age individuals and style? There is not. But that’s a good thing. Regardless of your style, let’s look at some worthwhile, classic items.
There may be a bit of a cost factor here, which can matter for those on a fixed income. If price is going to be a problem, consider looking for a wool overcoat at thrift stores, rummage sales, etc. Whatever you spend on it, you’re likely to get your money’s worth, especially if you opt for a color like charcoal, gray, camel, black, or navy blue – which never go out of style.
Stay comfortably warm and look elegant in an effortless manner with a wool coat. This essential part of your wardrobe goes with skirts, dresses, sports jackets, knit sweaters, button-up shirts, blazers, and everything else in your closet.
While you may choose to wear “cover-up sunglasses” because you can’t afford prescription sunglasses (cover-up sunglasses are hugely oversized and worn over one’s glasses), you’re labeling yourself an “elderly person”, possibly without even realizing it.
If you require glasses, this seems like an affordable option – and it is. Unfortunately, style goes right out the window. If you don’t wear glasses, finding a pair of decent sunglasses at an equally decent price isn’t a big deal. Save up your pennies and buy a pair of prescription sunglasses as soon as you can, if fashion and style matter to you.
To add style and elegance to any outfit, a silk scarf works wonders and is highly versatile. Wear it as a headband, around your neck, or simply tie it around your handbag’s handle for a designer finish. To any outfit, you can add a whimsical, youthful touch with the right silk scarf.
By pairing a cardigan sweater with the right outfit, you can reduce the “old-fashioned” vibe that these sweaters have built up through the years. You can be comfortable and cozy yet elegant and fashionable.
Sweaters today have characteristics that separate them from one another like large, decorative buttons; loose, statement sleeves; bold, chunky knits; delicate, fine fabrics, and more.
Walk up and down the aisles of any shoe store and you will be bombarded by more choices than you may ever have thought imaginable. But, of all the choices out there, a solid pair of white sneakers offers more versatility and comfort than others.
When shopping for shoes, one of the most crucial features is the sole. Make sure that it’s not too thin or too thick. What’s more, the soles should be slip-resistant, shock-absorbent, and firm.
Additionally, look at your day-to-day outfits and seek out a pair of sneakers to complement as many as possible.
