Welcome to Styling With Sandi! My name is Sandi and I am here to help men over 50 find clothes that are stylish and will get them noticed! As you get older, it can be difficult to figure out how you dress. The clothing and styles you once chose may not be a good choice anymore and you may be lost.
Are you interested in getting more compliments? Turning heads? Feeling spectacular and sexy in that bod again? I’m here to tell you that your clothing is the place to start. Certain apparel has the power to affect your mood, posture, and confidence. Let me tell you why. Sociologists have been studying how the clothes you wear affect your mind. They discovered that it’s not just what you wear but how you feel about what you wear. So, if you’re feeling out of date and less than sexy in those same old clothes, I can help! Give me a call to schedule your free 30-minute discovery session.
During this discovery session, I will listen to your fashion concerns and can give you some solutions. You can choose which styling service you want from me after that point. I will be able to help you with a variety of fashion concerns and help you dress better in your 50s.
To get you started, here are some fashion tips for men over 50.
Don’t Dress Like Young Men
One mistake that is easy to make when you are trying to dress fashionably is to dress like young men. Many fashion blogs and magazines are targeted toward younger crowds. Many of these styles have a sloppy look to them, from untucked shirts to tousled hair to graphic tees. While younger men can pull these looks off, a man over 50 may not be able to pull this look off as well.
As you start updating your wardrobe, remember that you are not trying to pretend to be younger, you are trying to dress for your age and look good doing it. Create more put-together looks, that offer an elegant and sophisticated touch — because you are likely more sophisticated than kids fresh out of college who have been wearing the same pair of jeans for a week straight.
Update Your Jeans
Many men keep jeans for years, which isn’t a bad thing. But your old jeans are likely shapeless, baggy, and look dingy. As you age, you need to update your jeans for something with a better fit. Jean styles have changed over the years as well, which means that your old pair of jeans is likely not fashionable anymore. Buy a new pair of jeans or two that offer more fit, look better, and are in style. But as I mentioned above, don’t buy jeans that the young adults are wearing. Most 50 plus-year-old men can’t pull off the skinny jeans or jogger pants.
Shop For Quality
When shopping for new clothing, it can be tempting to head to a thrift store or a retailer with more affordable clothing options, but as you get older, you should aim for more quality items rather than affordable. Invest in a high-quality pair of slacks, jeans, cardigans, button-downs, and other pieces that you may have to splurge a little more on. While it can be easy to find good pieces for an affordable price, never feel guilty spending a little more on a quality clothing item that is going to last you for years.
When you dress in cheap t-shirts and jeans, you will not look fashionable or put together. Add a few pricey pieces to your wardrobe and get ready to turn heads! Remember, when you spend more money on clothing, you are paying for quality and these pieces are likely to last you much longer.
Don’t Dress Too Old
While you should avoid dressing like young men, that does not mean you should dress like an old man. It is completely possible to dress for your age and still look stylish. Ditch metal glasses frames, gold and silver watches, velcro shoes, and any other items that people associate with old men. These pieces will instantly make you look older and are the opposite of fashionable! You can find pieces that are right for your age without making yourself look older.
Along with these tips, I can help you change your wardrobe and pick pieces that are fashionable and will work great for you. Dressing for your age is important and can help you turn heads! Just because you are over 50 doesn’t mean you can’t look great and catch people’s attention. At Styling With Sandi, I offer a variety of services to help you create the perfect look for you.
