Fashion and Beauty Trends to Wear at Any Age

Here are a few fashion and beauty basics every fashionista can wear no matter what her age:

misguidedA hip black leather jacket can take you from day to-night and is so versatile.  Try this faux leather version with gold studs from Misguided for about $100.00.


Pair the jacket with the perfect white t-shirt. I love the vibe of this BLK DNM Classic Scoop Neck shirt available at Revolve Clothing.  This is a  great investment piece that will look fab with a thousand different outfits this Spring and Summer.

eyelinerYou can wear a version of your feline friend on your eyes no matter what your age.  Try Calligraphy Liquid Liner by Hourglass.  It is smudge proof, waterproof and has a refined felt tip for easy application.

lipsA nude looking lip goes from day to night seamlessly, and looks as good on  teenagers as it does on the older chickies.  Pair this color with your  black eyeliner and you will have a hip and happening beauty bonanza. (P.S. Dark lipsticks can actually make you look older once you reach a certain age.  Now that I told you this tiny tidbit, watch and see how many older actresses wear dark colors on their lips on the red carpet…not too many can pull it off).

1_loreal-colour-riche-lipstick-in-fairest-nudeTry L’oreal Colour Riche lipcolour in Fairest Nude. (L’oreal also owns YSL cosmetics which I love)  Go ahead and save some money and buy this perfect color for $8.95.

    Hi Michelle, I think your list is right on. What do you think about the new ombre hair trend? I love it but am 42…too old to pull it off? There’s nothing worse than someone wearing a style they’re too old for. Tragic. And I totally trust your judgement. Thank you!

    • I love the ombre hair trend and a lot of women of our age are able to wear it successfully. The key is for it to look subtle. I think it would be fab on you and you see a lot of celebrities rocking that look in their forties. I say go for it, but have it be a gradual change in color from the mid-section of your hair to the bottom. It is just hair…you can always dye it back to your former color. xoxo
