Let's talk about fashion for women over 60. One of the biggest myths about women over 60 is that we are no longer interested in looking stylish. SUBSCRIBE FOR MORE VIDEOS: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=sixtyandme There is a big misconception in our culture that women over 60 are invisible, frumpy, and uninterested in sensuality and beauty -- that we're all matronly and sexless and no longer part of the world of fashion, art and creative life force. And yet, so many of the most fashionable people I know are women over 60! Women over 60 are often more fashionable than we used to be when we were younger, because we have better self-confidence and a stronger sense of self -- we know how to dress for who we are. When it comes to fashion for women over 60 here are a few things to consider: Embrace Your Age Go For Classic Looks Dress the Part Look to Icons of Style Read our articles about fashion for women over 60: Dressing for Your Body Type: http://sixtyandme.com/fashion-for-women-over-60-dressing-for-your-body-type/ Fashion for Women Over 60 – Are these 5 Mistakes Stopping You from Looking Your Best? http://sixtyandme.com/fashion-for-women-over-60-are-these-5-mistakes-stopping-you-from-looking-your-best/ 5 Tips for Choosing Colors: http://sixtyandme.com/fashion-for-women-over-60-5-tips-for-choosing-colors/

I just discovered "What Not to Wear" on TV. What a hoot! The advice is always the same (the show ended in 2013, I think), and the targets--the makeover--is always female, usually in her 20s, 30s, or 40s (NEVER 60s!). They're employed--the real reason for the makeovers is "appropriate" workplace clothing. In no universe would a retired woman in her 60s have use for a wardrobe like the ones they recommend. Pointy-toed shoes? Toss the sneakers? Really? About the bohemian look, anything that's oversized is a no-no, regardless of the woman's size. So forget sumptuous Moroccan kimonos, any kimonos or ponchos, and pants with stretchy waists. They're tossed in a garbage bin. Literally, on the show. (Truly.) For $5,000, one is expected to buy an entire wardrobe for all occasions in NYC. And pay tax on it, too. I tell ya, it's a real hoot! Great makeup and hair do-overs, though. ;-^)

Thank you Margaret, l love your blog, l am British American and love to dress nicely, turning 70 doesn't change anything, l take pride in the way l look, it's my body and l am proud of it...everyone creates their own image, l choose my clothes and shoes to suit me and everyone has a freedom of choice, God bless you all.
Amen.......I'm 59 and I love to look on trend, and current while staying appropriate for my age. I think there are ways to tweet most fashion trends to work for our age, we can't wear things in the same way the younger gals do. Classy, and confident translates to sexy without looking cheep!

All of these are opinions! There are and have always been those who go there own way and should. Advice is one thing but there are no definite rules since we are all different. Why take the spice out of life and become another version of the same old ways of doing things? I am always thrilled to see rule breakers who wear bolder, brighter nail polishes, lip stains, stockings and tights, shimmery scarves and jackets and yes brightly colored hair! Life should move us closer to authencity and our own version of self! Maybe we would live, love and enjoy everything more with this attitude! Thank You!

I'm 70 and like stylish, quality clothes of which I have many. I have a short neck so that eliminates quite a few things such as chokers, white shirts with collars, etc Can you show some things for short necks and yet in a larger size (in the X's)
Hoellenkatz Lehensmarr (2 years ago)
Why on earth shouldn't I be wearing short skirts as I own some fabulous black dresses (short); I have a slim figure,anyway ...of course, I love long dresses, too .

My married sisters told me to cut my hair because I am approaching 60 and to stop my wonderful ($$$) highlights! Probably because they started to go grey in their 20's! Now I can where stylish up dos and do not need to ever use a hairdryer. Thanks for pointing out in a positive way that we have seen it all come and go—at least once! From Toronto.

I would rather see a fit older woman dressed in younger styles than an over weight 20 something with her flabby muffin top showing. In what reality does a person look in the mirror and say that is okay? Where I live most of the young ones are over wieght with no waist line. Horrible 😨
dolores barnwell (2 years ago)
Why show sleeveless clothes for anyone over even 50. Upper arms whether toned or not look dreadful
Eyesofthebeholder 33 (2 years ago)
@Dolores, Seriously? wow thats so not true. My arms are tiny and its hotter than hades where I live. Wake up girl friend 💖

Classic: i.e. Audrey Hepburn, Lauren Bacall will niver be out of style.
lynne robinson (2 years ago)
Hi yes I think you have a long face and the length of your hair is making it look longer I think you would look nicer with a shorter Bob with layers x

+lynne robinson thanks Lynne - let me think :-)
Joyce Pfenning (2 years ago)
Too much talk, show outfits please on many types of older woman figures, not just skinny ones.  I must buy from thrift shops, no longer have the luxury of even buying cheap Walmart clothes
lynne robinson (2 years ago)
You need a new style for your hair it ages you
Judy Berends (1 year ago)
lynne robinson. I agree with you. A shorter style would look nice .
Norma Gilpin (1 year ago)
Hello - yes, I have a suggestion. You need a darker color, a shorter cut, and some height and fullness in the style! ;-)
Simar Song (1 year ago)
A suggestion: Have you tried the beachy wave look yet? I find that curves around my face, soften my features. Love your videos. Glad Ifound you!

Unless you don't have anything to sell, I can't understand that you charge to visit this site. I will look elsewhere.

People dress in the way that expresses who they are regardless of their age. Plus there are young people who don't look right wearing certain things. A woman over sixty can dress younger that her age is, she looks young, if she is fit and active, has a more youthful look, and she can have long hair. A woman will look bad and good regardless of her age. Leave people alone!!!!

Very good

nice chat, but where are the looks?????

I'd love to see age-appropriate but cool mature styling examples rather than lots of talk.
Aleta Thomas (3 years ago)
It would have been better with some visual examples.

I am a proponent that women should wear whatever they want at any age...just saying...I respect women for whatever they want to look like...I will not judge them. I do like your video though and found it to have good advice although I will wear something if I feel comfortable and it looks good on me...I hope people do not judge me.

A good hair cut, bright clean teeth, soft shoulder pads, a well fitting bra, colours that suit you, cover up the nasty bits whatever the season fashion and always comfortable shoes and upright carriage. Don't act as if you are part of the background...............confidence in yourself is a great beautifier.
