How to Dress at Any Age

Wondering how to dress if you are a woman over 30, 40, 50, or 60? The short answer. However the damn hell you please.

It’s almost difficult to imagine in 2016 we are still having the same old gender-biased conversations. I say “almost” because it did take over 200 years to nominate our first woman candidate for president after all. But I digress. We have made strides, but that doesn’t seem to keep body-shaming, gender double-standards, and ageism at bay. I still come across articles with titles like “What to Wear If You’re Over 30” in my feed.

While the short answer to the question of what to wear over 30, or any age, is to wear whatever makes you feel comfortable, I thought it would be fun to highlight some particular items of clothing. Life and fashion should be what you make of it and what you want out of it. Hopefully, you will be inspired not to give a f**k about what some magazine article thinks you should or shouldn’t wear (ahem). Dress how you want to, not how anyone else wants you to! And this applies to all genders, sizes, and ages. Do not let anyone limit your creativity and self-expression.

Some of the items on this list might seem a little kooky, but the point should be obvious. No one should be telling anyone else what to wear based on age and gender. Now it is okay, in my opinion, to have some societal limits on the where and when some of these choices are appropriate–maybe only wear the tutu to work if you are a ballerina, artist, fashion designer, or similar profession.
