Your kids hate it when you try to be all cool, and dress like them or their girlfriends.
One of the biggest concerns our clients bring to us is that they don't want to dress too young in their post-30's years, but they still want to look current and modern. Dressing like you're trying too hard to look young is an unforgivable fashion crime with stiff penalties.
We also have clients, probably much like you, who want to put off updating their wardrobes because they're not happy with their weight. Our stylist extraordinaire Amy Croker says it doesn’t matter what size you are or what size you want to be, you dress for where you are in your life now, your age now, and what size you are now.
Here's more from Amy:
I mean let’s be honest, we all want to look and feel good, right? But whatever stage of life you're in, whatever size you are now, it’s hard not to feel uneasy about about how to dress when we cross the threshold into our 30's, our 40's, our 50's and so on. Maybe some of you are mommies, like myself, or a soon-to-be mommy? Maybe you just scored your dream job or you are recently retired? Maybe you are an empty-nester or just moved to a new city? Dress for where you are in life now.
So we're going to share with you how to have style at every age and stage of life with our favorite looks for each chapter. Kind of a day in the life of...from our team at Tina Adams Wardrobe Consulting.
Great Style in Your 20's
Great Style in Your 30's
Entering your 30's may mean getting back into the work force or starting a new career. At the very least it means leaving behind the cheap thrills of super-trendy clothes and starting to think about investing in more substantial pieces for your wardrobe that are still youthful. It's time to dress the part.
Great Style in Your 40's
Oh the 40's. Kinda an earthquake of shattering realizations that your past shopping habits of grabbing something quick and easy no longer works. Poorly made and overly-trendy outfits look ridiculous on us forty-somethings, even if you have the body for it. It's time to evolve your personal style from flirty-girl/festival-goer/Target clothes-addict to a less-is-more/French chic/smart shopper wardrobe that says "you can trust me with your child or this career." And still look relevant and modern. Classy can still be fun.
Great Style in Your 50's and Beyond
So you just sent your babes off to college, and throwing yourself into your career, or you are looking forward to traveling and volunteering more? Step up your style from “soccer mom” to a more sophisticated look, and yet still remain casual for your new life.
Now that you have seen a few of our favorite go-to looks for every stage in life, just remember one thing, wear what you wear with confidence and you will always be in style in our books. Clothes are just clothes. The life you live in them is more important.
But you could also hire us. Ha, you thought I was done. You're great just the way you are and all, but what about self-improvement? When we finish with our clients, one of the most frequent compliments they get is, Wow, you are looking so great lately! (from friends and husbands) and Have you lost weight? And no they haven't, they're just dressing better. So Nashville folks, let's get you started with Amy, Barbara or myself.
