Men, Dress Your Age - Part 3 - The 50s

February 6, 2019


Your 50s are the time to perfect your sophisticated self. Stylish and elegant dressing is the best way to show you’ve made it. You may feel it’s the holy grail, but some simple rules will help you achieve a good look.


The biggest mistake people of any age make is in choosing a garment that doesn’t fit properly. You may have seen it in a photo or on a model, but unless it fits your physique it wont flatter. A good fit hides a multitude of sins, whether it’s casual or business wear you can now get everything made-to-measure.


The second mistake is to buy on price not quality. Cheap cloth and a skimpy seam allowance will only highlight a poor fit and be uncomfortable to wear.


Thirdly, high fashion is for the young and trying to dress like a teenager or twenty-something will only age you. Equally, don’t slip into ‘safe’ garments – beige is not your friend! A good cut and a colour that suits your complexion takes years off your real age and you will create a great first impression.


Footwear is another minefield. Shoes are a better bet than trainers, you can go casual with loafers, Chelsea boots or deck shoes; if you must wear trainers, go for understated in darker colours unless you are playing tennis.


Finally, a consultation with a good tailor will be an investment that will pay off. They will consider your job, your body shape and your lifestyle in order to advise you. You can then update your wardrobe step by step with essentials that fulfil these criteria.


If you want to talk to an expert in mens’ or ladies’ styling, call the office now and book a consultation.
