Hot Tips for Seniors on Summer Fashion
The summer temperatures are sizzling but that doesn’t mean the aging have to dress frumpy or less than appealing. Designers are more conscientious of aging consumers so you can dress fabulous at any age.
For women, look for clothes with lighter and airy fabrics to keep from overheating. Also look for looser styles that flow more and elastic waistbands. Sometimes buttons may be hard to fasten especially if there are any chronic health conditions or arthritis issues.
In the summer you may want to avoid denim as jeans do not always fit well especially if you’ll be outside a lot. As for shoes, slip on sneakers and sandals are easier to wear. Look for sandals with Velcro attachments instead of buckles to make it easier on your hands and fingers. This tips goes for men and women. You may opt for higher quality shoes so this may mean spending more but it’ll last you beyond one summer.
Cotton fabrics will allow more breathability so look for garments that have a higher cotton percentage. Linen fabrics will also be easier to wear in the scorching temps. This tip is great for men and women.
Stylish & Cool
Men can opt for button down shirts made from linen or cotton or a blend of both. If buttons are not ideal, look for cotton t-shirts or pull over tops. Keep things interesting with fun patterns. Hawaiian styles are always fun during the summer.
For women, look for capris or pants with drawstrings or elastic waistbands. Try staying away from jeans to stay cooler. Cropped pants look effortlessly chic and can be dressed up or down depending on your errands for the day.
Dress it up or down!
Off the shoulder dresses and tops are a great way to stay stylish and cool. Speaking of dresses, a good maxi dress may be a favorite during summer and will help you look fabulous and dressed up even if it’s just a casual dress.
If off the shoulder dresses are not your thing, there are also cold shoulder tops that have a little more coverage and feel easier to wear without worrying about the sides of the top.
Top It Off
Don’t underestimate the power of a great hat. Whether you opt for a ball cap or fedora style hat, this style choice keeps the sun off your head and out of your eyes.
Finally, don’t forget a good pair of sunglasses to protect your eyes. There are also prescription sunglasses for those who need it and remember the darker the lens, the better the protection.
