I know style, and I know how to dress appropriately, but it becomes more and more difficult the older I get, because what looks good on others, might not look good on me anymore.
My lifestyle is casual, and so I can get by on some staples, like cropped pants and tunics, most of the time. What is hard, is a more formal occasion.
My basic motto is to cover up what nobody wants to look at, and hope I can remain stylish doing so.

I don't really have a "style sense", but I'm perfectly happy wearing jeans and tops in retirement. The best thing has been associating with other gardeners in class and at seminars, public demonstrations, etc., because they pretty much all dress the same way too. And the gardening group cover-up aprons go with everything anyway, so now I don't even have to coordinate what I wear if I don't want to. Yay!

If you are happy, roughly at what age did you find your style and wardrobe fall in place. Was there a moment when it all made sense


If you are not happy and constantly wish you can overhaul everything & start over, what do you think will help you be content
If others don't like what I wear... oh well. I like me, so I don't care what others think. As long as the clothes are clean, why should anyone care?

Undies, tee, socks, boots, jeans, tac shirt, leather jacket, bush hat.

Silver necklace, dive watch, bandana.

Day in and day out, it serves me well, from office to the field and it is, where fiber is concerned, almost all natural, non fire attracting, fiber.

It works well into my western view of my self.

I have worn the same type of clothing since Third Grade, who cares. It is clean, modest and classic. No trends, no designer labels, no one to impress, no cares about the thoughts of others.

I'm middle-aged now. I'd love to dress in khakis, jeans, polos, fitted tees, Keds, and duck shoes. Extremely simple.
But on a woman my size, they can just look sloppy, I think. When you're my size, you have to try a wee bit harder to look pulled together. And that is difficult for me.
So I think I know my style, I'm just not currently comfortable in it.

Yes except I have trouble with shoes. Luckily I work where I have to wear she's conducive to climbing around on/in buildings.

I am 32. I would say it wasn't until my late 20s that I really felt I found my style sense. I dressed 'nice' before, but post college I went several years where I tried to force myself to dress 'nicer' and more professional 24/7 even outside of work because I thought I needed to be an 'adult' etc. I had a style and had nice quality, tailored clothes. I got compliments on the way I dress and the suits I'd wear to formal events etc. But it wasn't really me.

A few years back I decided to say screw it and kind of re-vamped my outside-of-work wardrobe. I enjoy a bit more of an urban street-style. I started traveling to get the tattoos from specific tattoo artists I love. I'm a bit bolder in my fashion choices. I feel more like myself and I get more compliments than I've ever gotten. Win/win.

Yep, always.

I wear what I like. It may or may not match the mainstream at any given point.
