Fashion Advice From a 79 Year Old

Tuesday, August 9, 2011

 I met up with Joyce the other day to get one more shot for my book. I met her outside a department store on the upper west side, a few months ago, and have loved working with her ever since. At 79 years old, Joyce believes, " To age is a privilege". I have shared her  great style tips before, but for another reminder check out the fashion advice below:
1.”Gloves they make an outfit, if it’s the right glove it can do everything for you.”
2.”Getting a good black dress that you can fix up with different wonderful colored scarves.”
3.”Marvelous Jewelry, it doesn’t have to be real or expensive, a strand of pearls can make an outfit.”
4.”A wonderful large fiocco, a beautiful bow or boa.”
5.” The right neckline, if you have a beautiful Décolletage then by all mean shows it.”
6. “I look for the brightest colors in shoes, don’t be afraid to wear them with a dark dress. A bright scarf and shoes and gloves of the same color will stand out against the black background of a dress or suit.”
7. ”The older you get the more elegance you want, you can use great color, but in an elegant way.”
8.”Don’t be afraid to be unique to be different.”
9.”Fishnet stockings, Incredible.”
10. “The real secret is being in love with life and realizing what you have.”
