Your style can be a major “ager” if you are not careful. Here are some things to consider.

Don’t cling to a look that is past its prime. If you haven’t changed your hairstyle since 2000, time for an update! Women tend to stick with a style that looked great on them at a good time in their life. Time to move on darlings, that perm and electric blue mascara is placing you in decades past.

Keep up to date on current fashions! Now really, if your suit is fifteen years old, it is probably out of date! At a recent networking group luncheon I noticed a woman who obviously took care in her appearance and thought she was quite stylish, but her aquamarine suit and lapel pin told me otherwise. Just because it looked good when it was bought doesn’t mean it does today! Her oversized shoulder pads were screaming in her ears “time to buy a new suit”!

Stay current with the season’s hottest new colors – just make sure you stay within your color palette. Know what colors look good on you! Find your best colors easily from the comfort of your home with our Virtual Color Analysis at

Dress your age. Dressing in fashions too young for you actually ages you. It’s hard to accept some styles no longer work for you as you age, but you’ll be doing yourself a favor ditching that miniskirt and moving on to a flattering a-line number.

Don’t bare anything that needs to be covered. As stated above this can be hard to accept, but why would you want to show off your liabilities. Hide those and show off your best parts and you’ll always look fabulous.

If you take these tips to heart and learn how to refine your personal style, you’ll always look TIMELESS!
