Staying Fashionable And Stylish As You Grow Older

No matter what age we are there is always a time in our life that we want to look our very best. Granted the older we get the less these times are as we feel less pressure to be at the cutting edge of fashion and style. But, there are still occasions when we like to put a little style and effort into being ourselves, more to show the world that we can still do it rather than showing the world how it is done. As we will have all seen through our own eyes our parents were the last people on the planet that we would have taken fashion advise from when we were growing up, I am sure that we have all been embarrassed by our parents fashion style when we were growing up, vowing never to make the same mistakes that they made when we grew up. As we ourselves grow older and fashion becomes less about trying to influence the world in what we wear and how we style ourselves but more about dressing in a style and fashion that we are comfortable in, not necessarily with the intention of embarrassing the kids.

Unlike the generation that our parents grew up in our generation is bombarded by advice and influences from such areas of the media as the television and from magazines so we are more aware than ever of what we should be wearing to be seen to be fashionable. The snag with all of this is that if you are aging and appear to be wearing all the latest fashions which maybe designed for a slightly younger generation you can appear to be someone trying to hang on to last throws of their youth in a very desperate manner. As you get older the trick with fashion is to try to blend in some new more fashionable items of clothing in with garment s that people recognize as more from your own generation and style, this way you can appear both stylish and keep your dignity.

A simple way to add a touch of style to any outfit that you choose to wear, whether it be at the cutting edge of fashion or just your own interpretation of fashion is to add accessories to your dress. Many items such as handbags, scarves, belts, hats and sunglasses are seen as luxury items in the fashion world and can be used to add a touch of style and value to any outfit that you are wearing. Of course the same rules apply with accessories as with any fashion item, it should match and compliment the rest of your outfit.

Sunglasses are a sure fire way of adding a touch of style and elegance to any outfit. We have all seen images of Italian ladies and gentlemen looking like style personified taking an evening stroll arm in arm and wearing sunglasses that look a million dollars.

Sunglasses create an aurora that is hard to be beaten by any other fashion accessory, a good set of stylish eyewear [http://www.sports-shades.com/Eyewear/Eyewear/Eyewear] sunglasses can go a long way to make an ordinary outfit look like an extra special outfit. Good quality designer sunglasses are hard to beat but there are so many cheaper makes on the market that are affordable and offer the same good look as the more costly options available. If you cannot afford a pair of the more expensive brands then do not be afraid to go for a more affordable make, they will still add more than a subtle touch of refinement to your look, which is more than I could ever say about my parents dress sense.
