mother may not approve...
“When you’re a teenager or in your twenties or thirties, you can wear just
about anything and get away with it,” my mother once told me. “But once you hit 40, it’s time to step
aside, cover up, and let the younger generation enjoy their time in the spotlight. That’s the secret to
Just thinking about that conversation now makes me chuckle.
Yes, those were the rules once upon a time. Back in the days when
the main reason many women went to college was to find a husband, and the only three careers
open to women were secretary, teacher, or nurse, women apparently came with some sort of
expiration date that rendered them “old” upon their 40th birthday. Hollywood
in particular was blatantly guilty of this, often shunting aside older actresses to pair
their former leading men with starlets half their age. No wonder so many women hated to turn
the "Big 4-0!"
As times and attitudes changed – albeit slowly -- those old dressing
guidelines now seem as distant as dime stores and $25,000 mortgages. The reality is that no one looks good in everything, regardless of her age. Everyone has her best and worst
styles and age – and/or a terrific figure – doesn’t change that.
But there are definitely some styles that work better on younger women and
some that work better on more mature bodies. The trick is in learning which is which and when it’s right
to make the transition. Get it right, and you’ll look years or decades younger than you are. Get it wrong, and you’ll look years or
decades older – even if you’re still in your
So how do you know which is which? And when should you trade one for the
It can be a difficult call.
Fashion magazines often run features about dressing well at any age with
pictures that show what women in their 30’s, 40’s, and 50’s+ should wear. But they often do it using
clothes with no models or slim models in their 20’s. It’s kind of hard to relate.
Then we hear stuff like “40 is the new 30” and “60 is the new 40,” but what
does that mean in terms of clothing? Does it mean that we can wear miniskirts and cropped tops until
sometime after menopause? Should we still embrace every trend like a teenager? Should mothers and
daughters shop together in the same store?
For while our attitudes toward aging may have changed, our bodies haven’t
necessarily followed suit. We may look younger than our mothers did at our age – or not – but we can’t
always fool “Mother Nature.” Gray hair and wrinkles still appear. We lose muscle tone. Gravity takes its
The difference is that where our mothers may have accepted these changes and
resigned themselves to matronly styles for the rest of their lives, baby boomers and their daughters
refuse to follow suit. Women born after WWII enjoy a higher level of education, employment, and income
than their grandmothers could have ever imagined, and they’re not about to let pesky little things like
gray hair and cellulite slow them down.
So what’s the trick to dressing your age?
An Age-Defying Solution
It’s really quite simple, once you know what to look for. Once you understand
the true power of clothing, you begin to see how you can use your clothes to create all sorts of
illusions to look:
Younger or older
- Thinner or heavier
- Taller or shorter
- More modern, less dated
- Softer or more powerful
- …or whatever you like.
