What should baby boomer women consider when choosing fashion? This is a question I hear often – people don’t always understand the unique challenges faced by women in their late 40s, 50s, 60s and beyond.
Today’s 50-something is a vibrant, connected woman with an active lifestyle and social calendar. Whether she works in or out of the home, this woman is busy. She likely volunteers, attends charity events, supports community events and a lot more.
If this sounds like you, the best place to start is by assessing your lifestyle and portion out how you spend your time. Your wardrobe should be consistent with your activities. One way to look at this is create a pie chart showing how you spend your time. Here’s an example:
Take a few minutes to figure out how you spend your time. Does your wardrobe correspond proportionately to your lifestyle? Do you have the range of fashion that gets you to all the commitments you have? If there are gaps, make a list of the specific items you need to add to your wardrobe. If there is a lot of duplication in one area, say work attire, spend your fashion budget filling gaps instead of adding more clothes for work.
Hope you find this helpful – I’d love to hear your comments.
