Recently retired, I have a closet full of either professional/work clothes or cleaning/gardening clothes. Not much in between. Suggestions?

    You might also consider taking some of your professional clothing to a consignment shop where you can also shop for reasonably priced clothing that fits that in-between look you seem to be looking for.

    I wonder if those professiona attire outfits are dry clean only? That can get expensive. Walmart & Khols have great sales on casual Apparel. If you are on a real tight budget, I would give it a go at a thrift store, sometimes they have good finds there. You might also consider selling your work clothes to an exchange for credit on more practical stuff.

      Thanks for the suggestions. It isn’t so much a money issue (although I do love a sale) but it is figuring out what to wear daily. I am not a sweatpants and sneakers kind of person. I need things that I can work in the house in and still run a few errands out in public. I keep feeling like I have to change clothes to go out the door. I might not be as “casual” an many women are.

      Do you like pedal pushers/capri’s ? They are casual yet always look slightly more dessy than sweats. They cargo style can lay really nice and some brands wash well. For shoes a pair of merrel style sneaker/sandal hybrid woudl work or sketchers toner shoes can look dressier than a sneaker.

    You are typical of so many that have transitioned into a more casual life–as their norm.That’s why I gave casual style the most attention in “Forever Cool” and the “Steal This Style” (I cover exercise clothes through black-tie) for those over 50. You’ll hopefully find lots of inspiration (for your body type and personality) within the pages showing real people in comfortable and stylish –ageless looks. Make room for new purchases by weeding out what is no longer useful, relevant, appropriate or modern in your closet.

    Can you say accessorize! If you cannot afford a new wardrobe you can do amazing things with scarves, costume jewelry, belts, vests etc. There isn’t an overall that couldn’t be blinged out!
