We all know that women today spend more time and effort than ever on the way we look. Happily, the desire to look great doesn’t stop when we turn Fab Over Fifty.
But, when we leaf through magazine after magazine and click on countless websites, we’re bombarded with a never-ending stream of photos featuring stick thin, and very young, women, wearing pencil-thin clothes. That’s pretty irritating for FOFs who want advice on how to look their best.
The good news is that accessories can help us stay trendy and discover our own style, at any age. In minutes, jewelry can enhance anyone’s overall look. Diamonds are now more popular than at any time in history, and it’s easier than ever to purchase beautiful pieces online, as well as sell pieces that we no longer wear. If you’re interested in selling your jewelry, at the best possible prices, you can find diamond buyers at www.wpdiamonds.com.
Here, also, are some of FOF’s best recommendations to look stylish at any age:
Know your strengths and weaknesses. First of all, find a mirror and take a look. Recognize your good features, as well as your “not- so-good” features. We recommend wearing only jewelry and accessories that help you cover up some of your less desirable features and enhance your strong points. An exquisite diamond necklace, for example, may look dramatic on a long or medium neck but not so much on a short one.
Focus on your hair! Your hair may matter more than you realize. Update your hairstyle to something more contemporary in order to look fresh and vibrant. Those of us who have been using the same hairstyle for years should consider looking for new options. Keep in mind that the new style should look great on an FOF, which means staying clear of teenager styles. Hair style and color are important pieces of the puzzle, along with accessories and jewelry. If you experiment, you’ll see that certain earrings or necklaces mix perfectly with a particular hairstyle, while other pieces don’t look as good.
Use trendy jewelry, not trendy clothing. It’s always a smart idea to use stylish or trendy pieces of jewelry to put the edge on elegant or casual outfits. FOFs should leave super trendy outfits for teenagers or younger women. Often, an FOF who wears an “in” outfit will look like she’s trying to hard and out of place. Stylish pieces of jewelry, such as bright silver, bronze or copper, also add a great deal of panache to an FOF’s skin tone and overall look!
