Can you Look Sexy over 50?

Can you Look Sexy over 50?


Age has nothing to do with looking or feeling sexy.

But does sexy mean looking like mutton dressed as lamb?

Well, we don’t want to dress like our daughters but we don’t particularly want to dress like our mothers either

It’s far too easy to get stuck in a style rut and start looking frumpy just because you’re playing it safe.

You can look sexy at any age

You can look sexy at any age just as easily as you can look tarty at any age. Sexy older ladies like Sophia Loren and Helen Mirren have very different styles but both look sexy and classy at the same time.

Looking sexy is NOT about wearing short skirts and low cut tops – or showing lots of flesh. It’s more about attitude. It’s always good to leave something to the imagination.

A confident woman who really knows herself and her own signature style is a sexy woman. The secret is to know your own style, and highlight the parts of you YOU feel most confident about. For example if you have great legs or ankles wear those sexy heels -as long as you can walk in them with confidence.

Remember the old song when a glimpse of stocking was looked on as shocking! A glimpse can be much sexier than an eyeful! If you’ve got great boobs show them off by the cut of your clothes rather than wearing something low cut.

If you know you’re shoulders are great then show them off with a Bardot style neckline.

Have a great manicure and wear bracelets or rings to draw attention to pretty hands and slender wrists.

Don’t be afraid of wearing colour – a vibrant look can be a sexy look.

Feeling and looking sexy is all about attitude and nothing to do with age.

Can you look sexy over 50?

Absolutely, fabulously YES!!!
