Leggings and Jeans for Older Women

Wear ankle length leggings: These will flatter anyone. However, finding the correct style that matches your shape is the best advice. Don’t confuse leggings with pants and panty hoses. They are tights and some are thick while others are sheer. So try to find the thicker ones. Some of them are longer, but try to avoid the capri length; especially if you are short or your calves are thick.

Wear tops that are flowing: With leggings, you want to wear long and loose tops to cover your butt; especially if you are heavy or wide behind. Because leggings are skinny on the bottom, it is evident that a long and wide top would work best. In fact, these kinds of top will hide any bulges that may exist. A bold tunic and leggings when you are over forty will give you a fresh new look.

If you want to wear a short mini dress coupled with a pair of leggings, it will not only dress up your outfit, but offer a more chic, conservative, modern and casual look.
Wearing flats or wedges: If you want to wear leggings, then choose a pair of flats or wedges. Of course, you can opt for high heeled shoes, but this may look a little tacky for a forty year old. This is a more teenaged look for clubbing. Ballet flats, wedges and low heeled boots are best for a mature and relaxed feel.

Colored jeans: These chic, fun, hip and modern jeans are in for the current and future season. They suit women of any age so don’t avoid them when you are older. They come in a wide range of colors that you can choose from. In fact, if you purchased pink-colored jeans, you could wear so many different colored tops with it as well as an assorted choice of shoes. You can dress up your outfit with a variety of accessories; depending on the occasion. If you are pear shaped, you could opt for wide legged jeans instead of the skinny fit. If you have limited curves, the skinny fit is best for you. For a boyish look, choose the cargo style.

For a more melodramatic look, create a color-block ensemble. This means, you would wear one color for the jeans and a conflicting color for the top. Don’t worry. You won’t look like a clown. Choose a neutral colored top such as black, gray or cream and a brighter color on the bottom. Have fun dressing up and looking younger.

Styles for Flat Hair Type

One easy fix is a quick blow dry. Lifeless hair may be due to oiliness. This is a simple solution that may put volume to flat hair. After taking a bath, blow dry wet hair using a comb with a wide area (i.e. paddle comb). Continuously pull the roots going to the tips inwards while blow drying. Remember to keep the blow dry at a level. This is to keep the hair from being exposed on too much heat. After blow drying, add a liberal amount of hairspray in order to maintain the fix. Add a little more underneath to maintain the curves at the tips.

Braids may also come in handy to fix flat hair. A highly-recommended kind is the French knot, which arranges the tips glamorously sticking at the back. The French knot is easy to do. First is to part the middle section of the hair. Then braid the two sides separately. Leave a few tips. Then, tie the two braided parts in a bun while leaving the un-braided tips to stick out. This kind of style is recommended for formal occasions.

Another recommended quick fix is to add volume while adapting a “wind-blown” effect. This will create more life to the hair by allowing the tips to look wildly arranged. This quick fix is advisable for layered hair. After taking a shower, blow dry the hair using a special comb. Comb the hair continuously, pulling back from the root section to the tips. After blow drying, add a little hairspray to keep the arrangement. Focus on spraying at the inner section to maintain the “wind-blown” effect. This will style will add a little liveliness to the image. This kind of quick fix is best for short hair, wherein the length can easily be manipulated.

Retro Fashion Silhouettes

The 1950’s saw an explosion of prosperity for the United States, and the dresses from that era reflect it. After two decades, the lean years of the depression and the fabric rationing of the war were over. In 1947, Christian Dior sent shockwaves through the fashion world with his “New Look” collection. With its cinched waists and full, voluminous skirts, this style set the tone for years to come. Curvy, hourglass were in!

  • Fit & flare dresses have a fitted bodice and a full skirt. Think cocktail parties and Grace Kelly. This style was very fashionable from the late 40’s through the early 60’s, and has become popular again today. Fit & flare dresses are a fun, feminine style with swirling skirts that look great out dancing. They can be worn with a crinoline for extra volume or alone to really let the skirt move.
  • Pencil dresses run the gamut from office wear (Joan Harris on Mad Men) to slinky pinup garb (Jayne Mansfield and Marilyn Monroe) to elegant evening gowns (Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s) Pencil dresses are fitted from top to bottom, with a straight or slightly tapered narrow skirt that usually falls somewhere near the knees. The pencil silhouette is a sexy style that accentuates and flatters the feminine shape on women of all sizes.
  • Shirtwaist dresses are a practical, easy-to-wear look, with a collared bodice that buttons up like a dress shirt and end at the natural waistline. The skirt flares out, and its volume can range from a subtle A line to a full circle or more. Lucille Ball frequently rocked this look on “I Love Lucy”, and indeed shirtwaist dresses were a popular choice for housewives of the 1950’s, as they are comfortable enough to wear around the house but can be dressed up easily with a hat and gloves.

What’s your favorite silhouette? Try a fitted bodice and full skirt for going out on the town or a figure hugging pencil dress to bring out your inner va-va voom. And on those days when you feel the urge for stylish comfort slip on a pretty shirtwaist dress. The right silhouette can really shape up your style.

Wear Floral Prints

For casual outings, pair a black skirt with pink roses with a white oxford shirt under a blue knit sweater. Finish with cute ankle boots and an envelope clutch. If you want to add extra style, wear a bucket hat and let your hair hang loose. Another option is to wear maroon jeans with a sleeveless button down top in a bright pattern of roses and peonies. Add sensible heels, a short leather jacket and a handbag with a chain strap for a little bit of edge. A day at the beach deserves something a little more cool and skin baring. Try cut off jeans and a cropped tank top underneath a loose floral overshirt. Accessorize with a few bangles and wear sandals to finish the look.

In the fall, dresses in this pattern can be worn with thick tights, boots, and a solid cardigan. Add a pendant for some sparkle and you are set! If you are a little more daring, wear a body hugging tube dress, tights, boots, and a faux monkey fur jacket. Carry a leather handbag and some big sunglasses for that Hollywood look! For something more romantic on a summer’s evening, wear a strapless dress in a bright color and a white island flower pattern. Strap on some gold sandals and wear a floppy hat. Carry a straw clutch for some real exotic island detail.

For a night out on the town, wear leggings underneath leather shorts and some high heeled boots. A loose flower patterned tanktop under a faux leopard fur jacket is a good way to mix patterns and textures. Carry a knuckle duster clutch for some added edge.

For the office, tuck a fitted long sleeved oxford into a brocade pencil skirt with rose detail. Wear sensible heels, carry a leather satchel, and finish your look with filigree hoop earrings to tie the look together.
