Fashion tips for older people

Tongue-in-cheek fashion tips for older people. Your choice of style may change in unexpected ways as you get older. The conversation and the poem are about your choice of fashion in old age. Maybe you’ll wear Jenny Joseph purple with a red hat that doesn’t go, or maybe you’ll sink joyfully into sloppy old workout clothes. This is something to look forward to!

  1. I enjoyed thinking back to wearing skirts and dresses every day in high school and thinking forward to more changes as I age! Since letting my hair go grey, I know that I’ve been choosing brighter colors for my clothing, as a bit of a counterpoint, I suppose.

      I do too. If I wear beige I am beige all over. Fun though.

  2. Plenty of colour for me please. If I am wearing a suit then underpants, tie, and socks will always be colourful, possibly purple and red!

      Brilliant, in two senses!

        So far, on a Wednesday. There are eight in the first season, then a pause.

        No nono a pretty shin-length formal dress with sleeves. And red boots. Now go.

        Skinny jeans, you say? I’m way ahead of you!

        Wear. A. Dress.

        I can do that. I’m British. Monty Python set the scene.

    Thanks for the reminder to go to Stitcher. What day do you post these podcasts?

    Heck, I’m almost 35 but need all the fashion tips I can get.

    I love your voice and accent, Rachel! I’m 67 and a half (yes, I count the halves now). Old is relative.

    Fashion is fun! I love expressing myself with the styles I choose. Every morning my body is like a blank canvas and I enjoy the art of composing an outfit for whatever the occasion. 🙂

    Sustainable fabrics, fair-trade, cruelty-free PLUS comfort are of utmost importance! I hope people watch THE TRUE COST, an excellent documentary about the fashion industry.

      That’s really good to hear, that my voice is ok by you! And I share your priorities for clothing.
