  2. New Year Challenge Day 9 to Stay Fabulous Over 50 in Lockdown: How to wear red

    Comment
    Challenge set by Julia Rees How often do you wear red? When I look back over my career I signed my biggest contracts when I wore red to meetings. Whether that is because I subconsciously with more confidence, or whether it affected how others reacted to me I have no idea. All I know is that it worked for me. If I am having a ‘down’ day when working from home during lockdown I reach for one of my red sweaters. Today Julia sets our lockdown challenge – I do hope all ladies in red join us !!   Welcome to day 9 of the “New Year New You” Challenge, and here is your challenge for tomorrow.

  3. Style over 50: What to buy in the sales

    Comment
    Style picks by Ceri Wheeldon   Usually at this time of year I know exactly what I want to purchase in the sales, I replenish on the classics – good tailoring, boots, quality knits, great blouses which I know I will get lots of opportunity to wear and my projected  cost per wear can be totally justified. However, because of the pandemic and the restrictions placed in 2020 on all of our lives – I barely wore most of my purchases or other favourites in my wardrobe. I’m sure I’m not alone!! So what, if anything, should we be buying in this years sale as we look at the start of 2021 and beyond. Our lives have changed beyond all recognition. Should we buy...

  8. Style over 50: Best knitwear picks for autumn

    Comment
    Article by Ceri Wheeldon Its knitwear season again! With many more of us working from home, we are likely to be wearing more knitwear than usual. So how can we still be stylish over 50 when wearing sweaters? To be honest, my everyday working from home wardrobe  ( I have been home based for 25 years) during autumn/winter tends to be black jeans and black sweater with the addition of a chunky necklace for zoom calls. But, when ‘off duty’ I prefer to wear something a little more inspiring. I have pulled together some of my online favourites. I have stayed clear of classic styles selected items that are a little bit different. Wherever possible I try to shop in my own wardrobe prior to buying anything...

    Comment
    Article by Ceri Wheeldon 2020 has been a strange and challenging year for most of us.

I have found that I have been wearing my more relaxed clothes over the...
