We’re not getting older. We’re getting better. We have more natural health. We have more natural beauty! We are women – hear us roar!
Now let’s be serious – yes, today it’s not unusual for a woman “of a certain age” to look young and vibrant and sexy. But there are some rules that we have to follow to pull it off!
BRAS AND BREASTS - Nothing makes a woman look older than sagging body parts. Get yourself a proper fitting, don’t be concerned about the size or the number. Just make sure your breasts are riding high and perky!
DON’T DRESS YOUNG -- First of all, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – Don’t buy your clothes at Forever 21 if you are forever 61 now. It just looks like you’re an old woman wearing a young girl’s clothes.
JEANS – When it comes to casual dressing, jeans still fit the bill, but make sure they also fit the butt! Don’t wear them too low like a teenager, and don’t wear them high-rise like “mom jeans.” Either one is unflattering and can create that devil of a muffin top. Wear dark wash jeans or denim blue, without any fading, bleaching, tears or wild embroidery (except if you have no butt like me, then a little bit of embroidery on the top of the back pockets can give you some extra pizzazz). A boot cut with a slight bottom flare can balance out your hips. And trouser jeans are especially flattering, with a wider leg, wider waistband and flat front. Stretchy denim with 2 to 3 percent Lycra is flattering and comfortable.
LITTLE BLACK DRESS — Still the thing to wear. Get one that flatters and fits and you will have the perfect dress to wear to any occasion at any age!
And when you’re ready to go out – STOP!!! Check your butt in the mirror and make sure it’s looking as good as the rest of you!
