Aging is natural, and when you think about it, as it’s not given to everyone, it’s even a privilege! However, there’s a difference between accepting your age and feeling old. So here are a few tips to age gracefully!

 

1- CHOOSE QUALITY FABRICS

Our love for comfort sometimes makes us forget to look for quality! Fabrics that are too thin or too stretchy will lose their charm very quickly; so don’t forget to look for thickness and structure! You’ll see, our picks don’t compromise on comfort!

2- MAKE TRENDS YOUR OWN

With a little imagination, you can make pretty much any trend your own! How? Don’t try to go all in if it feels like too much. Choose one element and combine it with clothes that feel more familiar! Take wide leg pants, for example. Models often wear them with oversized blazers. However, you can totally wear them with a slightly fluid blouse to make them more accessible!

3- DON’T BE AFRAID OF COLOURS

Yes, black is slimming and goes with everything, but there’s nothing like vibrant colours to revitalize your look. Besides, if you’re not familiar with colourful looks, know that just adding one bright piece to your outfit makes all the difference and can help you highlight your best assets.

4- KNOW YOUR BODY TYPE

Knowing your body shape and having a good understanding of it is the best way to make great choices, create flattering outfits and feel more confident when shopping! Overtime, the body tends to change. Are you still familiar with your body type? Our body shape tool will help you to stop focusing on your insecurities and work on the positive instead. It makes all the difference!


5- PICK OUT THE RIGHT LINGERIE

Lingerie plays a bigger role than you can imagine in your overall lookAlthough we don’t see it, a bra that provides good support makes a big difference. We must also pay attention to panty lines and textured bras that can create unwanted folds. When in doubt, opt for laser-cut undergarments with as few seams and frills as possible!

6- ADD AN ATHLETIC TOUCH

There’s nothing like a sporty touch to upgrade any outfit. A bomber, a t-shirt, athletic stripes, sneakers… it’s up to you! However, be careful not to wear sports garments from head to toe if that’s not the purpose of your outfit. Instead, combine one athletic element with a chic or feminine look. Mixing styles is THE thing.

7- DON’T FORGET THE FINAL TOUCH

Never underestimate the power of accessories! Cute pendants, mixes of gold and silver bracelets, colourful shoes or a nice handbag are small touches that don’t go unnoticed!

8- CLEAN YOUR CLOSET

Last but not least… Purge and clean your closet! Throughout the years, we tend to accumulate a lot of clothes, and unfortunately, not all of them have them same life expectancy. Some lose their shape, others lose their colours, and some trends just don’t age well. That’s why we encourage you to get rid of clothes that don’t suit you anymore.
