Our fashion experts show you how to look stylish at 60, no matter your taste...
Remember – it’s all about attitude not age. This is an exciting and liberating time for women in their sixties.
For many, family duties and demands are beginning to ease a little, so make the most of it!
If you’ve never discovered your ‘signature style’, now’s the time. We think it’s time to start indulging in a little bit of what you fancy – so why not start with your wardrobe?
Dressing to flatter your body and express your personal style can make you feel young and confident, whatever your age.
Too old for trends? Never! One thing style in your sixties should never be is boring! Who’s to say you shouldn’t enjoy experimenting? It’s all about making it work for you, your body and your personal style.
Prefer to blend into the background in black? You might be surprised to discover that a little colour and print could visibly strip back a few of those years you’re ever-so-slightly reluctant to own up to…
When it comes to covering up, it’s time to lighten up. Versatility is key. A super soft longline blazer will look with just about everything. Over a LBD or with a Breton tee and jeans, a blazer will see you through the years to come.
Ease yourself into spring tones with this light blue blazer from Sandro.
If pleats feel frumpy but pencil skirts are too clingy, meet your new best friend: the wrap skirt. Combining classic style with a dose of on-trend tailoring, it will go with anything and take you anywhere.
A printed scarf can save any outfit from fashion obscurity. Layer it over your every day work tunic or an over-sized knit and instantly look chic – hurrah! That pop of print will take years off.
Think you’re too old for jeans? Pah! There isn’t such a thing. The only thing that will make you look old is out-dated denim. Stay on top of the key shapes and must-have styles for each season. For SS18 it’s all about a high waist and cropped legs. Ease yourself by sticking to a flattering black shade, like this pair from Whistles.
If you want to fake the illusion for longer legs, then always opt for a pair of heels that matches up to your skin tone.
The ankle strap around this pair from Next will provide extra support.
If you prefer to keep things simple with your clothing, then amping things up with your accessories is a must. This season it’s all about statement earrings, and we at the Woman& Home fashion team can’t get enough. From playful pom-poms to long dangly tassels or colourful jewelling, get yourself a collection of bold earrings that even Pat Butcher would be jealous of.
Treat yourself. You’ve spent years looking after everyone else, so it’s time to re-invest in you. This cashmere knit will keep you in the comfort to which you should become accustomed. Plus with the correct care, you can re-wear this for seasons to come.
Put a new spin on the classics. You’ll of course have heard that ‘every woman should own a crisp white shirt‘ a few hundred times over the years. Well, we agree. But that doesn’t mean you can’t put your own stamp on it… Look out for embellished collars, ruffles or super over-sized sleeves for a fashion-forward spin.
Never been brave enough for leather biker jacket? Well, it’s never too late to try even the most daring of trends. Think Saint Laurent more than Sandra Dee.
If leather is a touch too far, then choose a suede biker in a softer shade. It’s lighter and easier to wear.
Trying new styles is key to staying up to date and modern. Culottes are a great spring trouser that look smart enough for a nice meal out but are super comfy. We love these stripe pair from H&M. Team with a black blazer and cami.
Amp up your weekend footwear with some shiny trainers that are not only bang on-trend but super comfy too. What’s not to love?
