Matronly Suits: This lady-like knit is sure to age you (and no gold buttons, please!)
Primary Colors: They belong in kindergarten. Don't wear them – especially with the predictable black slacks or skirts.
Dainty Jewelry: The gold clip-on earrings, pin and necklaces do little more than add glitter – file them with the gold buttons.
Short Slacks: It's difficult to look professional in slacks that come up short. Exposed tan stockings only makes it worse.
The Wrong Bag: This lady-like structured bag only adds more stiffness.
Scary Hair: This includes all varieties of over-spraying, "helmet hair" and "big hair."
Simplicity: Edit your look with a current fit and flattering style.
Color That Works: Neutral colors are always sophisticated and mix easily.
Finer Fabrics: Buy the best! Their flattering effect (as we age) is worth the money.
Coordinated Pieces: Wear a two piece outfit that appears suited rather than matching – it suggests a more relaxed feel.
Great Accessories: Think quality and style. A great accessory can make the outfit—especially shoes and bags.
A Perfect Fit: Make sure that every aspect of your outfit fits well. If something's not quite right don't buy it, or have it altered.
Like New: Keeping your clothing and accessories in tip-top condition is essential.
