A Style Change?

I think change is good. Hell, its great. Ever see that chick and think..

WOW, her style is ON!

I think those women either take classic items, and spice them up. Or buy classic items with a twist. For instance the trench below. On the left is the classic trench. On the right is a trench, with a twist. I would look twice at the chick on the right because my eye tends to go for something that is not the norm.

These boards were made by me, and are my opinion.

I had to break in here. JEANS. I love them and many many pairs. There are to many options these days for us to ever have to go back to the old ways. Jeans should make a woman feel sexy even if they are baggy (boyfriend jean). I recommend a jean with STRETCH. If it doesn't have stretch, pass it up. I have two pairs of jeans that are non stretch and I have not worn them in 2 years because of my growing hips or rear. If you buy stretch they will go with you always, no matter what you have going on,

Keep in mind that I am 31, but as I see it. I wont stop shopping in places like J Crew, Urban Outfitters, The Gap, etc…Just because of age. Some department stores have sections made for certain age groups, and I cant really understand why. Why should a woman's style change just because she ages. When I say style, I mean if she likes jeans and a tank at 25-35, why at 50 should she have to go to the “section” for flowered tanks, and flowered elastic pants to match. So I say..stay true to your style always, no matter your age. I plan to be a hip mature woman year after year.

What an awesome post. That's what I love about fashion that they do take classics & spice it up!! I that lil military jacket so much better & the flared business suit jacket. I agree with the whole age thing too with sections. I'm almost 25 & I should be in the Women's section but I like the stuff in the Juniors section with taste so yeah if your styling it doesn't matter where you get your clothes from! I really enjoyed this post! Have a great day!

Were those jeans ever "in"? Melanie who told you you SHOULD be in the Women's section just because you're 25? If you have your own style-you can shop anywhere you want-I'm glad you're not hung up on where you think you SHOULD be. Enjoyed this post.

Amen girl, Amen. I hate the "misses" or "women's" department. All those flowy tops are not fly!

I'm torn... No you shouldn't change your style, however I believe that you should take that same style and make it age appropriate.

Be who you are. Self expression through fashion. Be brave.

I totally agree! I am (cough, cough) soon to be 39, but don't look a day over 30 if that, lol! I look everywhere for clothes, except the "mature" spots! I visit fdiary.wordpress.com. She is 47 and boy does she look great!
