Perhaps.

Let’s take a look at the trend as interpreted by Hudson’s Bay

Clearly, this collection is for younger women. But what can the mature woman take from this?

  • Plaid – wear it as an accessory, blouse or shoes.
  • Leather – wear one of the new moto jackets with denim or black skinny pants. Most mature women cannot pull off leather skirts or trousers anymore.
  • Metal – look for studs on shoes, handbags or jewellry. Choose one item with this trim.

What should the mature woman avoid in this look?

  • Graphic tees
  • High top sneakers
  • Safety pins or safety pin jewellry.
  • Gothic jewellry
  • Mini skirts and dresses

While younger girls can pull several pieces together for a look, the mature women is advised to incorporate one element into her look. Find pieces that fit your lifestyle and comfort level. No matter how you participate in the seasonal trends, your look should still be you.
