Fashionable Thursday: Styling and the Art of Dressing Your Age
New Year, New You and a New Styling Series! The first thing I want you to interpret right is the fact that styling is an art, therefore is a matter of creativity, fun and there are specific ways to make it work for you. During last year we talked about different personal styles one can have and adopt according to the personality and likes, as well as about the different body types there are and how to dress them accordingly to look proportionate if one wants to do so. Now we are staring the year with another series, but this time it has everything to do with our chronological age and tips and tricks that may serve as a guide when getting dressed. But first let’s clarify that there is personal style, which is a form of self-expression in which the personality, likes and behavior become well integrated to give birth to your personal interpretation of fashion. That is exactly the reason why certain pieces appeal to your eye and mind, why certain colors and silhouettes resonate more with your being and the reason why you dress the way you do it. In other words, you are what you wear; and this exactly the reason why we need to consider how are we feeling and viewing ourselves if we want to be effective with how we look. What we wear directly resonates with who we are and where we are heading in life. In the other hand, styling is the dimension in which you can master and dress your personal style. It is important that you get to know yourself first, and then the styling portion becomes way easier, which is the way it should be. Transitions and changes are perfectly fine, they are innate part of life, but let’s always find our way back to discover our essence. No matter the season, but the reason.
Now let’s talk a little bit about dressing your age, because I’m not going to offer you bunch of guidelines of what I personally think that you should or should not wear. Instead I’m going to provide you tools and hints that may help you in the process of dressing yourself and look like a secure, oriented and stylish girl, young, middle age or mature woman. You will get to know what can work best for you and discard what does not. The next five weeks we will be exploring together and in depth this matter. No matter the stage you are in, styling can be mastered. You read well, it can be mastered, and we will touch basis in styling girls and teenagers because they also have the right to look fashionable while age appropriate. Girls and teenagers also have the right to confront life with style. Here you will be able to find different ages and life stages:

I hope that you will find this series useful and practical. 2020 is here, let’s make it count and work in our favor, even with what we wear. Because styling is the art, but you are the canvas Donna Versatile!
