One of the most common issues many women face is that as they get older they worry about dressing inappropriately for their age – the old “mutton dressed as lamb” issue.
Interestingly, what I’ve discovered with my clients, is that if that thought ever crosses their mind, it’s NOT GOING TO HAPPEN and they can put the thought out of their mind. The women I meet who are dressed to follow Mary, don’t even consider that what they are wearing might be a ‘bit too young’ for them now.
I see way too many women looking frumpy and dowdy because they dress too old, to make sure they they’re not dressing too young. Please, I implore you, don’t do this either as it ages you. It also makes you appear like you can’t deal with change and are not keeping up with the modern world.
So to ensure you don’t look like a spring lamb, avoid showing too much flesh, if there is a little cleavage (to around the top of your cleavage, not plunging down, unless you’re a lovely young thing), make sure skirts and dresses reach to the top of the knee or longer.
Skirts past the bottom of your knees can often appear frumpy, unless you have very long legs, and are best worn with heels. If you prefer to wear flat shoes, keep your skirts no longer than the bottom of the knees.
