Dressing Sensationally At 30

Your trademark style should be fully established by the time you reach your thirties. But for those late bloomers, it’s not too late to take heart and unleash the fashionista within!

At the age of thirty, an evolved polished look should portray an awareness of how you and others see you, projecting a more confident mature self.

Most things within this decade is toned down a notch, where if you loved big graphic designs in your 20s, you can still wear the same patterns in your 30s. But instead of as a dress, try the pattern either as a top under a cardigan or in the form of your favourite pair of heels under skinny pants. If you wore preppy chic pieces in your twenties, keep it up and just add a few A-line skirts with your statement tops, along with investing in a few sensational dresses which you could spice up with your boots. Remember never button your tops to your neckline, and be sure to pick pieces that work with your body shape.

Your 30s should never rely on low cut tops and forms of fitted dresses. Instead bring out the stilettos and Audrey Hepburn dresses, wear tailored jeans and make sure your tops don’t ride up when you bend over.

Make sure you investment in at least one pair of jeans which make you feel absolutely fabulous. A good pair of jeans is a necessity to your wardrobe, preferably in a dark wash colour, which can then be worn with heels or ballerina flats taking you just about anywhere, looking really stylish. Angela recommends “Not Your Daughter’s Jeans” – try them, they are amazing!

Dressing Sensationally at 40

It’s time to develop a look that’s slick and streamlined. For the office lady a pencil skirt that stops just below the knee which has an element of stretch works for all – it keeps everything in place and gives you a sexy wiggle. It’s best to keep your overall image simple but to add one or two status-symbol pieces, such as an embellished jacket, a shirt or some bold jewellery.

Just because you’re 40 it’s definitely not the time to hang up your style and bring out the mum jeans! The styles you have always loved can be updated and refreshed to reflect your new sense of self. The key to looking your best in your 40s is all about garments that fit well and are tailored.

If you love black, by all means add it to your wardrobe, but ensure you keep some colourful pieces.

Wide legged trousers should be a staple in almost everyone’s wardrobe. If you have wide hips, these are great at keeping the secret. If you are a little on the thin side, they also do a great job of giving you curves where you had none.

When you are shopping, ask yourself, does this tell people that I am classy, sophisticated, and put together? Or does it scream desperate, in denial, or too revealing? Trying to dress like your 20 and 30 year old counterparts will not make people think you are this age.

Don’t wear any articles of clothing which you did 10 or 20 years ago, unless it is an amazing winter coat still in great shape. You do deserve some new clothes, and while you’re at it, get a chic new hairstyle that makes you feel gorgeous.

In closing, don’t be a slave to fashion, and don’t be a slave to your youth. Embrace your growth, and celebrate that you are still around to strut your stuff! Maturity does not insinuate you are ancient, so get rid of those hangups and start dressing appropriately for your age.

Dressing Sensationally at 50

The best way to looking great is by ignoring your age and enjoying life to the full.

Give your waistline a helping hand with fitted jackets or wrap shirts tied at the waist. Wear a supportive cami which help’s create smooth lines. Firm waisted trousers and skirts are a blessing for keeping that tummy perfectly flat.

As you near closer to your 50s, your skin can become vulnerable to hormonal changes. As oestrogen levels drop further, your skin becomes more sallow and moisture and elasticity are reduced causing the appearance of deep wrinkles. Take care of your skin by using anti-aging and skin firming products. Click here to see the Champs-Elysees Day Spa.

Choose solid and bold colours. Choose classic shapes!!

Dressing Sensationally at 60

A balancing act is what you need now. If the top you choose is voluminous, wear it with a pair of narrow, tailored trousers. Avoid all pleats, as they accentuate curvy hips. Conversely, if you choose a full skirt – make sure it is flat over the hips to avoid adding bulk or wide-leg trousers, it’s best to keep your top half fitted.

Simple but expensive-looking jewellery that quietly states ‘class’ is the best adornment.

Go for the unfussy chic look: minimalist, functional designs and details. Zipper’s are far more youthful than gold buttons.

Watch your handbag: it is usually a giveaway to your age. The key here is to find a bag in good proportion to your size.

Tips to Remember

Use a skin care range that protects the skin’s elasticity and helps reduce fine lines.

Always keep active!

Your wardrobe should portray a smart and sophisticated style. Timeless buys, such as a classic coats, fitted jackets and fine-knit cashmere sweaters are great wardrobe staples. They never date and always look stylish. A scarf draped around your neck or a striking shawl draped over your shoulders will give a simple and classic style. Natural fibres like cotton and merino will feel lovely on your skin. Untouched World have a great range of casual everyday classic garments. Good quality shoes are particularly important. Shoes should be comfortable and support your arches.
