Hi, this is Bryn Taylor with the Re-Stylist. Today we're going to talk about clothing etiquette for women over fifty. When you reach your fifties and beyond, it can be a really exciting time in your life, and you're probably feeling really grounded about other aspects of your life, whether it's your career, your family, and you're really comfortable with yourself. But your style and your wardrobe might not be keeping up. You might be questioning whether certain trends are right for your body. You might be wondering which brands and designers to look towards. It can be really confusing. But if you keep a few things in mind, you'll be able to really navigate those waters and let your style shine through. So, three things I emphasis for women over fifty are style, fit, and fabric. The style of your clothes has to be classic. This is not a time to experiment with really trendy cuts. You want the style to really stand the test of time, and highlight your body, and just be super classic and tailored. With the fit, along the same lines, you want everything to fit you beautifully. If this means incorporating the help of a professional tailor, then so be it. It's going to be worth it. You want your clothes to flatter your body, not look too tight, and not be too loose and baggy and flowy. Lastly, the fabric is something that should be of really great quality. This means you might need to spend a little bit more on fabric, but it's going to be worth it in the long run. You want things to last. You want the fabric to flatter yourself, and you want everything to just have a little bit more of an elevated feel. So, here we have an example of a great outfit for a woman fifty or beyond. We're playing with completely classic silhouettes, and just adding pops of color and accents within those. We start with classic pair of black pants, well-fitting trousers. We add on this amazing trench coat, which is just so fun and full of color, but it's still in that classic trench style, so it's going to be flattering on your body. Next, we accessorize with the long pendant necklace, and we finish off with a fun green clutch. Now, this clutch is, again, in a classic form, but the color just elevates it and makes it a little more fun. This is Bryn Taylor with the Re-Stylist. Thank you for tuning in.
