My goal is never to look younger than my age, but I often want to feel youthful. Hip. Remember the word hip? When I was younger, hip and cool described feeling up-to-the-minute and current. If you’re from my generation, you know what I mean. I promise not to use the word groovy in this post 🙂
Welcome to this week’s Hit Your Style Sweet Spot, my weekly collaboration with Pamela Lutrell from Over 50 Feeling 40!
Your Style Sweet Spot is when you know your appearance is sending the message you intend and feel confident you look your best. Last week Pam and I shared how we dressed for summer events. This week we’re dressing to feel youthful. (hip)
I never want to feel like mutton dressed as lamb. In my opinion that just looks sad. What I do like, is looking modern which helps me feel youthful. Here’s my Style Recipe™ for feeling youthful stylish after 50. Hint…it’s not wearing trends head to toe!
I was thrilled to find this Striped, Knit Jacket from Tahari ASL. The tailoring is sleek; the thin stripes are fresh looking, and the zippers add detail at my waist. It’s tacked-back lapels add a contemporary feel. I’ve worn and loved Tahari for years. Their quality construction makes Tahari’s clothes, investment pieces to add to your wardrobe.
This Trouser Jean from Chico’s feels both retro and new after years of wearing slim legged ones. They’re just as comfortable and flattering as they were when I wore them in my twenties. What’s better than a dressed up jean!
Wearing French Kande feels youthful to me. The whole concept of vintage French Medallions styled into edgy jewelry appeals to me now. Don’t get me wrong; I love wearing classic pearls and dressing a la Coco Chanel. But at almost 60, that’s not always a youthful look or feel on me.
When I wear a modern jacket like this, I want my accessories to be modern too!
I added the new block heeled shoe which is stable to walk on and very comfortable.
This is how I hit my Style Sweet Spot to feel youthful in my clothes.
Pop over to check out the terrific clothes at Tahari ASL. They have terrific, updated classics that work seamlessly into your wardrobe.
Let’s see how Pam hits her Style Sweet Spot.
Have a great week and thanks for reading!
