Dressing Age Appropriately
Note to Mariah:
You are basically the antithesis of dressing for your age. I don't expect you to dress matronly or frumpy in anyway. You have worked hard (and probably paid a lot) for your body, and you should dress to emphasize your hard work. I just think there may be a couple more subtle ways to highlight your assets. Unless you are at the beach, midriffs are not ok. Neither are bandanas as shirts or visible bras. Also, the butterfly trend ended circa 1999, time to find some new accessories. Thanks.
Note to Readers:
I think that it is possible to be fashionable and stylish at any age. Here are a few tips to make sure you don't look like you are stealing clothing from your pre-teen daughter's closets:
-If you have to ask yourself if something is too short, it probably is.
-Don't shy away from color. Colors look beautiful on women of all ages, and it is one of the best ways to make a wardrobe interesting. Just don't wear colors that are sprinkled with glitter, and after age six rainbow tie-dye is not acceptable-- on anyone.
-Don't hide your figures in clothes that are shapeless and too big, you may think you are hiding flaws, but it can actually make you look bigger. However, if your clothing is so tight that you can see your bra or underwear lines, or it is starting to pucker at the closures, it is definitely too tight.
-DO have fun with your clothing.
I've said it before and I'll say it again, life is too short for boring clothes.
