Ladies, have you caught yourself looking down your nose at someone and thinking, ” isn’t she a little old for that?”
What has society done to our self esteem that we give each other an expiration date? Who made these rules that after a certain age we can’t wear something because of our age? Give us a break. Style doesn’t have an age. And these style icons have been proving it every year of their 60+ years. These women prove that age is trivial.
Screw those dated ideals of aging “gracefully” or dress your age.
Here are some timelesss rules to live by;
Find a trademark accessory and hold on to it.
Maintain your flair for drama.
Don’t be afraid to take chances.
Cool is ageless.
If you’ve got it, flaunt it.
Each one of these iconic women live by these “rules”…yet go ahead and make your own rules. Because if age teaches us anything, rules were meant to be broken.
