New Fashions for Seniors! : 5 Tips for buying a new outfit

by MichelleR on June 18, 2012

1. Comfort.
Choose garments and shoes that are comfortable and feel good on. It’s wise when choosing jeans or pants to buy ones that you will not have to struggle with the difficulty of buttons or hard to zip zippers. Think about the issues that might arise when having to make a bathroom stop; this can help you determine what clothes work best.

2. Warmth.
Just like our Mother’s always said, don’t leave the house without a sweater! Always have a cardigan on hand, with many ways to sling them over the shoulder or around the waist, cardigans are a must have.
For Women’s cardigans and fashion for all ages, check out “Talbots” www.talbots.com
For Men’s stylish cardigans check out “Banana Republic” or “Macy’s Department Store” www.bananarepublic.com , www.macys.com
3. Sensible, yet stylish.
Department and boutique stores carry plenty of age appropriate, flattering, and stylish clothes for the seasoned fashonista! You can never go wrong with sticking to your classic style; just upgrade it with a new blazer, new pants or new shirt similar to what you already have in your closet.
4. Stand Out! Accessorize!
Scarves, necklaces, pins, bracelets and belts make a huge difference to an outfit. Don’t be afraid to accessorize!

5. Hats.
Protecting your skin should be top priority no matter what age. Wearing sunglasses and hats not only make a fashion statement, but are a great way to keep out damaging sun-rays.

Play with color and accessories. Please don’t forget to wear comfy and balance secure shoes! It is always fun to lift spirits by wearing a new scarf or getting dressed up for lunch, so stay stylish!
