Older women on their personal style
From writing as a freelance journalist to blogging as That’s Not My Age, I’m often asked for my thoughts on style and age, what we wear and how it makes us feel. The latest feature on this issue is for Refinery 29, ‘ 7 Older Women on their Personal Style.’ Where I underlined a point on personal style and age that I always come back to, ‘One thing has become abundantly clear: the common wisdom on what is appropriate to do, say and wear over-40 is no longer relevant. Having rocked out to the Rolling Stones and pogo-ed to the Sex Pistols, baby boomers are never going to be told what we can and cannot do. We’ve grown up breaking and remaking the rules – gone are the days when hitting 50, 60, 70 or beyond meant conforming to a ubiquitous look. Looking good rather than looking young is the new mantra. It’s not about age, it’s about style.’
Here’s a link to the Refinery 29 feature, I’m pleased to be included with six other women of style and substance.
