The new saying is that 60 is the new 40….but what in the heck does that look like??! How is ANY age supposed to look? I think it suffices to say that this is a great time to be a grown-up. But, you DO have to put some effort into it.
Nora Ephron wrote in her sixties about her grooming saying she’d suddenly realized that she was only about eight hours a week of self-maintenance away from looking like a bag lady.
So here’s a short list of don’ts for sixty-somethings:
- Yellowing teeth – Get them whitened, but not too much. It will knock 10 years off, rather than blind your assailants. If the cost is not in your budget, try Crest Whitening Strips.
- Dated shoes – Don’t know what happens here….the old kitten heels and super long toes are dated. Now that flats are so cute, it’s a shoe for everyone. And, leopard is ALWAYS good.
- Stray grays – Make sure to check your eyebrows and, OMG! your chin. Get rid of it!
- Limp sweaters – Nondescript billowing cardis are hard to pull off. Bold, well-chosen prints or solids speak of confidence.
Do any of these resonate with you? How many apply to your life today? What did we miss?
