“How can I look polished and put together even though my retired lifestyle is very casual?” Some version of that question has been put to me many times recently.
I usually avoid any trends, but styling tricks using classic basics can make your look current and polished. Styling a look includes rolling or pushing up your sleeves, popping your collar up, and layering or tucking a shirt in a more flattering way. Wearing a short jacket over a long top creates the illusion of a taller better shape than I have.
A crossbody bag, slip-on sneakers, ankle pants and a white jean jacket are classic elements which I can wear in many ways, but they have a casual vibe. I put them together with an aqua top from Covered Perfectly to add a pop of color. I keep the colors to a minimum, no matter how I dress. In keeping with the casual attitude of this look, I added a bold watch, a simple silver bangle, a plain pair of silver earrings, and one ring. My makeup is light and natural. Even my lip color is a muted, natural, understated plum color. My eyes are sensitive to light, so I never leave the house without sunglasses.
