Some style basics for our oldies:
Style stays, Fashion fades. Rather than chasing fluttering trends, men of the growing age should stick to one general look in which they are most comfortable. For example, if you feel good in a Blazer- Jeans pair then stick to it, don’t change it just because you are growing.
In accessories, a subtly patterned tie is always appropriate for a man of mid-age.
Lastly, White running shoes are never recommended for old people unless they are out for running and for that also they can prefer some black or dark hues Nike.
Style don’ts for our oldies:
Skinny Jeans: No matter you are skinny, you should ignore those slim fitted jeans. You are not a singer from Green day; You will end up looking silly wearing those tight pants.
Logo/ Graphic Printed t-shirts: After a certain age say 50, anything that broadly displayed on your chest, makes you look desperate so avoid it.
Hoodies: A big No for all oldies.
Long Hair: If you are losing your hair, any hairstyle longer than ½ inches is not preferable.
Blue Jeans and running shoes: This is my personal dislike. If you are out for running, wear running shoes and if you are out for work then wear some grown-up shoes.
Now Let’s head towards some style tips to look best in 50s. Here they are:
Keep your style colour-blocked
It doesn’t say that you should retire all the colours from your wardrobe but go for some monotonous tones. Try to avoid bright acid colours and pastel shades and go for some classic hues like camel, light grey, navy blue, forest green and dark red. If you have all grey hair, then wearing all grey outfits will look fabulous. This is the most recommended professional fashion for offices.
Give farewell to your cargo pants and shorts
Most of you must be thinking it is obvious, but it requires repetition- no cargos, ever. Though they are comfortable and convenient, think about all those pockets that come in handy, but they are not for you-big daddies.
Make white t-shirts your regular wear
Yes in the old age anything in white can be classy. You can carry a white t-shirt on any occasion but make sure it is in pristine condition that means cleaned, ironed and properly folded. Otherwise, you may look like just slipping out of bed. Trust me: it is not at all suitable for a dignified old man.
Know your body shape and stick to a single tailor
Some men are lucky enough who get effortlessly fit in those store-bought suits, but the majority of such men is very rare. So if you are not one of those lucky ones then do yourself a favour and get your baggy pants and suits cuffed and hemmed properly. Ill-fitted clothes are not at all good for you and will show off your growing age. Wear clothes that fit just right and dress like a multimillionaire.
Don’t put on denim on denim
When this is an always in look for young hipsters, but for men over 50s, it’s a definite NO. If you are wearing jeans, then go for a casual button down and wear a simple T-shirt on top. A mix of denim and Chambray shirts with tanned brown Chinos is always best for men over 50. Denim jackets with any blue shaded jeans should not be worn for any occasion.
