Dress Your Age

Society seems to expect that once you pass the age of 40, you’ve lost all sense of fun and dressing conservatively and quite boringly is the only thing you should even consider. Naturally I’m not encouraging you to dress like a 15 year old but if you’re not quite ready to give up your love of fashion then don’t.

There are a number of fashion choices that are suitable for any age and the below are my personal favourites…

  • The Polo Shirt is the ultimate in casual clothing. There are a range of mens designer labels and high street stores who have their own ranges but generally speaking they all follow the same soft solar, two button style. From pinks and greens to whites and blacks from small emblems to wacky patterns. Paired with jeans and with or without knitwear or a casual jacket, there is no reason why any man cannot pull this off.
  • The V-Neck is simple classic knitwear that works for any occasion. Paired over a shirt for a casual smart look or worn over a t shirt for the more casual affair; a quality v neck knit is something that any man can pull off. Available

Diamond Earring Jackets

Spicing up your gemstone studs is easy-peasy with the right diamond jacket. As with any earring, you’re still looking for something that frames and flatters your face. Since the jackets are removable, a single earring jacket can drastically expand your jewelry combinations. A basic diamond jacket can be paired with studs of all types: gemstone, precious metal, patterned. Most jackets are made from a precious metal, but allergy sufferers should still be careful. Although the jacket itself doesn’t go inside your ear, it does rest against your skin.

The patterns of earring jackets are almost endless. Nautically themed diamond earring sets seems to be all the rage, with charm-style jackets being the most popular. Not quite as cute but certainly stylish are “wheel” style, which reminds me of macaroni wheels, except that they made of gold, silver, or platinum, with the outside edge and spokes encrusted with diamonds and other gems. Hammered metals are another common style, ranging from floral to abstract. These seem to vary more in material, although most are still made of metal.

Finding affordable diamond earring is a cinch. While diamond earring jackets can give an extra pizzazz to basic studs, the jackets themselves don’t necessarily …

Wear for Your Body Shape

Pear shape

Women with this body shape can benefit by avoiding the shift dresses which are less likely to flow and instead cling to the body. Dresses that draw attention to the upper half of the body are the most appealing option.

Skirts have the ability to slim down the lower half of the body. The preferred style is in dark shades and tapers towards the ankles. It is best to avoid skirts that flare out from the waist.

When it comes to trousers or pants, the most interesting and appealing look is achieved with darker shades and colors. Try to wear a pattern that widens at the ankle area.

Apple shape

Dresses with the interesting necklines should be favored by those with an apple shape body. This style is favored for its ability to pull attention from the middle of the body. Also avoid the dresses that use a clingy fabric for the upper-half of the body.

The best look with skirts is achieved with well-fitting and pleated styles. This style is useful for drawing attention from the stomach area. Make sure to avoid wearing the pencil skirts.

Wear the trousers with less detailing and a fit that is …

Stay Warm in Real Fur

Start with a Good Foundation

Before you load up on big puffy coats, you need to start with the basics. Your mother was right: cold weather means stocking up on long underwear. There are silk or thermal options to match your personal tastes. Silk is warm, but thin enough to layer under regular jeans. Thermals are perfect underneath heavy duty winter clothes. Think skiing or hiking in extreme weather.

Leggings and tights are also a great option. Both come in a variety of fabrics, keep you warm, and give you a put together look when paired with skirts and boots. If it’s especially cold in your area, you’ll definitely want to wear multiple layers.

Get a Real Fur Coat

When it comes to a winter coat, beauty is equally as important as functionality. When the wind chill is in the low teens or even colder, it doesn’t matter how cute your coat is if it doesn’t keep your warm. On the flip side no one wants to wear an ugly coat from the fashion reject pile, no matter how warm the coat is.

For fashion and function, invest in a real fur coat this winter. Why a real fur coat? …
