You Wear it Well

This legging outfit is classy and modern at any age!
You've got to dig deep in the music archives to find Rod Stewart's "You Wear it Well" single. It was released in 1972. Oh, the 70's. Ironically that decade is alive and well now in the looks of Fall 2011. There's a resurgence of bell bottoms, bright colors, jumpsuits (yikes!), maxi dresses, leather and fur. But the real question, especially with "push the envelope" styles, is can YOU wear it well?

This is always the conundrum. What can I get away with? One of the most common questions I hear is, "if I'm in my 40's, 50's or 60's can I wear leggings?". Leggings are such a comfortable, fun and modern look, most anyone can pull them off. Just be careful what you pair with them. A nice riding boot or flat with a tunic sweater and leggings is appropriate for any age or figure. Leggings paired with a high heel get into a "nightclub look" that almost no one beyond 25 can get away with. And who doesn't want to cover their bum, saggy knees and cankles? It seems like the legging/boot combo might just be made for the "mature" woman!

You can wear it well even when you push your comfort zone a bit. Wear it with confidence ("own it") and good judgement and You'll Love What You Wear!
