If you're on the silver side of 6ixty the world is programmed to ignore you, to categorize you only as a "senior". Forget that! With a few style strategies you can still be recognized as a sexy, vibrant woman. That's what I call dressing with intention.


Since my own 6ixties fashion metamorphosis — since I began paying more careful attention to what I wear and how I look everyday — I find that I am welcomed with more excitement wherever I go. Everyone from cashiers to waiters to mechanics to eye doctors to hair dressers favours me with better eye contact, brighter smiles, and better service. And from the compliments I get, I know I'm being seen, I know that I'm a presence.

Top 6ixties Style Strategies


#1 Scarves? Not!

Ignore standard fashion advice aimed our generation, which too often goes like this – wear a dark skirt with a neutral blouse and then wrap a scarf around your neck to make it an outfit. Look around, too many women our age use this style "tip" to create what's really a frumpy fashion uniform. You don't want a bunch of material bunched up around your chin. Besides that, where's the colour? Where's the sexiness? Where's the look-at-me factor? But, listen, you're not alone — this is the kind of advice I followed before my fashion epiphany.

#2 Colours Make A Statement

Choose clothes with colour and pattern. Put those grey slacks and black pants in the dark reaches of your closet and bring the brighter tones to the front. Red! Blue! White! Orange! Discover your best colours and go for it! Everyday.


#3 6ixties Sexier

Be curious about how you look in sexier outfits. Mine your closet to find treasures to coordinate with your new look in mind. You want to be noticed, you want to be sexy, you want to show off your best assets.
