What to Wear in Your 60s
Now is the time to opt for classic pieces in simple but well-cut styles rather than go for fussy clothing. Frills and fussy lines are
instantly aging, whereas clean cuts look chic and stylish the more a woman gets older. Stay away from prim suits, ditsy florals and country flowers and go for bold graphic or geometric prints.
This is the time when a woman can carry off strong colors
such as purples, reds and blues in hues that flatter her skintone.
Go for pieces which disguise problem areas, such as a three-quarter sleeve to disguise flabby arms if they are flabby. Heavy denier opaque tights can make legs look
slim and shapely, and opt for a V-neck or scoop neckline to flatter that décolletage.
Keep the figure in proportion by following the top and bottom rule. A mature woman can get away with baring skin on one or the other, but not both.
When wearing a dress with a short hemline then arms should be covered. Conversely, if cleavage is on show then the dress length should be longer, this I think applies to all ages anyway.
