Styling For Matured Elegance

“Dressing appropriately” seems an oxymoron since fashion is an expression of creativity. Being “appropriate” suggests we must conform to someone else’s rules.

We’d like to believe everyone should have the freedom and right to express a personal style which gives them a sense of confidence. How then do we infuse our personal style with a sense of propriety that dominates interpersonal perceptions and impressions?

Follow our series where we bring you solutions to the top concerns we hear from our clients, using the latest Spring/Summer 21 trends.

We kick off the series with tips on one of the most commonly heard questions – “Am I too old to wear this?”

Our answer to that – Audrey Hepburn and Sophia Lauren don’t have the monopoly on “matured” and “elegant” fashion! Here are our style tips that will keep those worries at bay.

Style Tip 1: Monochromatic Colours

How many times have you purchased something just because it was your favourite colour or simply because you loved the colour only to realise that you have nothing to match it with? Our advice is to go with monochromatic colours that go well with anything and look flattering on all types of skin tone. Classic colours like these are safe at any age.

Style Tip 2: All Over Prints

You can never go wrong with prints because they are universal and jazz up all types of clothing. Prints also give off classy and elegant vibes for that chic style you want to achieve.

Style Tip 3: Key Detailed Dresses

Leonardo Da Vinci said “simplicity is the ultimate sophistication”.

This means being simple isn’t banal but elegant and that is the idea behind key detailed dresses. The dress is designed with some simple details so it is not basic, boring or plain but makes these dresses elegant and beautiful.
