Actually these look good on all women but mature women seem to carry it off best. This is not a fashion article. Be sure to look at the pictures at the end. I first posted this in fashion forum but think retirement age women would appreciate it even more.

I agree. I'm 66 yrs old and will wear what I want.


And if any one any where tries to put me in polyester, I will get revenge by removing said polyester and run through the halls without it.

Maybe it is just my aunts and MIL, but ... nearly all complain that they cannot find stylish clothing for older women that fit and look good.

LOL...I love the advice to stop wearing holiday theme clothes! Every time I trek to the senior center or around town I see old ladies wearing sweatshirts embroidered or stamped with Christmas trees or holly (sometimes with sparkles!), Easter lilies, summer flowers, sailboats, autumn leaves, turkeys, and Christmas.... I wouldn't be caught dead wearing something like that (along with the elastic-waist pants), even though I AM old!

Exactly! I'm not wearing my Christmas tree skirt. And those Christmas sweaters are bulky, tacky and add pounds.

How about we ladies go for the Madonna look (she's 55).

I love an older woman that takes the time to have her hair styled - no helmet head - but fashionably. Adds some makeup - very few look their best au natural. The pics of some of the ladies in the article look classy - love classy. I was at Target the other day and an older lady just looked maaaaaaavelous. She had on a nice pair of jeans but was very pulled together.

Older women with overly styled "do's" and makeup generally make themselves look older, imo.

I'm not talking about overly anything. No helmet heads but a good stylish cut. No cake makeup - but these new tinted moisturizers and BB creams plus soft blush & <gasp> mascara.
