Dress Youthfully – One Trend at a Time
Apr 4 2013

Continuing on with our discussion of how to dress youthfully, choose one trend at a time.

If you want to know what not to do, think to yourself, “What would Mary-Kate and Ashley do?” and then do the opposite. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olson, child stars of TV’s Full House and currently fashionistas with a clothing line, never meet a trend that doesn’t have three trend friends that want to join the same outfit. This collage approach to wearing multiple trends expires at the age of 24. If you’re 42 or over, best to showcase one trend (two at the most) at a time. If you like mixing masculine and feminine elements (a semi-sheer floral print or lace blouse with a gray pinstriped trouser), leave out the tribal element. If you prefer a modern look, go for architectural shapes in your clothing and add patent shoes or belts while leaving the bohemian pheasant tops alone.
Keep it simple. If you’re going for the tribal trend, a necklace of carved multi-sized strung beads can be a statement necklace and all you need to add is a classic white summer pant and a khaki-colored safari jacket to look completely in style and appropriate. Overdone would be mixing multiple ethnic prints in tops and bottoms and then adding the necklace for extra credit—a no-no.
