Ageless Chic

One of the discrepancies within fashion blogging is ageism. The majority of successful fashion bloggers are in their twenties. However, I have found some classy blogs that showcase some excellent style all from ladies over the age of forty. My mum and both my grandmas often dress impeccably. My mum has lots of nice cocktail dresses, maxi dresses for the summer, shirt and tank top combos and some lovely, complimentary jewellery. My grandma on my mum's side loves the colour purple so her outfits usually include this colour. She also has a fascinating array of scarves. My grandma on my dad's side has lots of different jumpers and flattering trousers. She also has pearls and Breton stripes like Chanel. I also have three tried and tested outfits that will lead everyone in the direction of ageless chic...

The Trouser Suit



The trouser suit has been reincarnated from the '90s in recent seasons. Wear in muted colours and neutral for a more mature, everyday look but don't be afraid to experiment with colourful prints in the summer. Some can work at any age.

The Maxi Dress
There comes a point in every mother's life when their children become embarrassed by them wearing any skirt or dress shorter than just above the knee but who cares? Midi and maxi skirts are prettier and more original anyway.

If you comment I'll always love you and we can hang out and bake vegan cupcakes and drink tea and listen to sixties records. Go on, you know you want to...
