Yep, I’m going there. However not the way you suppose.
I’ve thought lengthy and onerous about how you can write this submit with out ‘yucking on another person’s yum” and I don’t prefer to s*$t on one other girl simply doing what she thinks is correct, however I noticed a caption on social media the opposite that REALLY aggravated me.
It was one other stylist principally telling everybody to put on the identical factor. She had a go at “vivid colors and kooky prints” , calling them outdated and outdated and just about stated everybody ought to put on outsized neutrals. and it acquired my again up.
I didn’t like being instructed that there was solely ONE look that was ‘cool’.
That my love of color and print is someway ‘much less trendy” than greys and blacks.
SO It made me suppose, I wished to put in writing my very own checklist of issues that try to be enthusiastic about if you dress, and word, this doesn’t apply to only us over 4o’s – this is applicable to everybody (however I wished to put in writing 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 trend’. When you love color, and it makes you are feeling good, put on it! If loopy prints make you smile, rock them each single day woman!
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. Costume for YOU, not anybody else
I believe that’s what aggravated me about that social submit the opposite day…. this stylist was telling us what SHE cherished to put on, and what she thought was ‘cool’. Nice! When you actually love that look, put on it, however don’t put on a pattern as a result of another person instructed 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 effectively
Ignore the quantity. If it’s a must to go UP to get the match proper, then get the match proper. When you go down a dimension, does it look good? Or are you simply happening a dimension to honour some type of false magnificence customary that smaller is best?
Take note of how issues fit your needs – are these skinny denims uncomfortable your tummy? strive a large leg pant. However in the event you ROCK your skinny denims and so they look wonderful, hold rocking them.
4. Put on good (and supportive) underwear
Good supportive underwear can fully change not solely your outfit, however your posture and confidence! Get correctly fitted on your bras a minimum of annually (they’ll actually stretch out and cease providing as a lot help in the event you flog them like I do!).
Put on underwear which can be comfy, and that breathe. My largest underwear tip is to put on underwear that sit on the identical top because the waistband you’re carrying. It offers a fantastic line, you’ll really feel supported and garments will look higher.
5. Put on developments, ONLY in the event that they work on your distinctive fashion
Now I really like a pattern as a lot as the following stylist (hi there neon for Spring, however that’s one other weblog), but when the pattern don’t match into your distinctive private fashion, you don’t must do it!
So lots of my shoppers are fearful 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 pattern actually talks to your sense of favor, 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 in the end, it’s so simple as this….
