If you are a mature woman who would like to update your wardrobe with the newest fashions and would like to avoid the common problem of dressing too young for your age, it is important to be aware of the impact that your clothing and accessory choices will have on your appearance. By combining ageless style with newer accessories, you will find that your new outfits and undergarments can be worn through multiple seasons and several years without becoming dated. Therefore, it is a good idea to apply the following tips the next time that you go clothes shopping.
#1 Consider Classic Clothing Choices–With A Twist
One way to get the most use out of your wardrobe is as simple as choosing a few standard clothing pieces that will be accessorized by a few, less expensive pieces that are consistent with the current season’s fashions. You can take that step one step further by paying extra close attention to the accessories that you choose. By mixing and matching your accessories with new and classic styles, you can make your investment go even further.
For instance, a well-tailored black suit will never go out of style and you can pair it with this season’s skinny scarf. Another fun option to explore this year is the patterned silk scarf, which can be tied around your waist, neck, or even your purse.
#2 Dress Properly From The Skin Out
If you have ever stood in a dressing room, angered and frustrated, because nothing seems to fit and flatter, it is time to verify that what you are wearing underneath fits as it should. For instance, one recent survey established that almost two out of three women are wearing the wrong bra size. An ill-fitting bra can make almost any outfit bunch, wrinkle, or look wrong, regardless of how expensive it is. As a result, a quick visit to your favorite lingerie store to be sized professionally is crucial.
It will also be helpful to consider different bra styles, so that you can benefit from the extra support and additional padding that modern bras can provide. Supportive panties can create the illusion of weight loss, which can make it easier for your clothing to flatter your body style. Of course, a girdle can also provide the same thing over a larger area.
#3 Verify Your Clothing Sizes–And Try On More Than One Size Of Any Outfit You Like
You have probably noticed how much size deviation there is amongst the various designers and manufacturers for women’s clothing. The material, cut, and style of different articles of clothing can often mean that you can wear a size eight in one dress and a size four in the next.
Another problem is the department where your clothing is purchased. While you may be used to shopping in the Misses department, it may behoove you to consider looking at the petite choices within the same section if you have lost weight as you have aged. Finally, never buy anything without trying it on, and be aware that although orange is very popular this season, its use next year and later can be very dating. As a result, be careful to use it discreetly so that it does not wind up in a donation box next year.
In conclusion, as a mature woman, you are likely to find that by combining classic clothing choices with a few accent choices from this season’s fads and consistently wearing the right sizes, your going out outfits will always be attractive and flattering. In order to accomplish that task, now and in the future, it will be very helpful to consider the information listed above on your next shopping trip.
