A Right To Bare Arms

Diane Pollack

So last time I wrote that reaching a new age bracket is not a reason to automatically change your wardrobe or your style.

But don't get me wrong, there are various reasons why a woman as she ages may want to change the type of clothing she wears.

A big one might be a changing body. So if your arms start to wiggle a little more or your stomach bulges a little more, you may have more pouch in your tummy, or you have just expanded in general, you may very well choose alternate items for coverage or that are more flattering.

Now sometimes what you reveal, has nothing to do with your age. I will get a little personal here.

My whole life, not in my twenties, not in my teens or any other time, did I think I looked good in short skirts. So I choose not to wear them.

On the flip side, I am fortunate to have inherited my mother's arms. She rocked a beautiful halter dress at my wedding. And I will continue with my "right to bare arms" for as long as I feel good about it.

One area where I thought, well maybe age does matter was in regard to ripped jeans. After all, I wear them on occasion, but would not want to see my mother owning them. But the more I thought about this "exception to my rule", I realized it was not all about age.

Ripped jeans are a trendy item. When put together well and when appropriate, can be a cute look, for those who know how and when to wear them. If you are not a trendy / well-styled person, ripped jeans can simply look sloppy and unsophisticated.

For the rare few fabulously stylish women (like the woman in my last post, or the lady pictured here) I bet they could pull off ripped jeans... if they choose.

Although, I could continue to go on with more thoughts on "age-appropriate", I will leave you with these thoughts for now.

And most of all, I hope you make chooses that empower you at any age.
