Hi Theresa Asire and a warm welcome to fabulous50s! I'm happy you are here...Absolutely to off the shoulder...It can be very slimming if you have a large bust and flatters most body types... have an amazing week 💕
Schellea, could you do a video on how to determine what Style (clothing) you are? I’ve watched a few on youtube but I value your info & your opinion of different topics so I would love to see a video from you on this. Thanks & have a wonderful day!!
Thanks for you video suggestion lucy girl 🙏 sometimes we can get even more confused when we think we should be dressing a certain way...I am formulating a way to demonstrate this so it will be easy to understand...❤️
I don't have a curvy body, I was sort of straight up and down, but now, with menopause, I am straight up and down, but with a "curvy" midriff and tummy! It's difficult to not look masculine in the angular pieces of clothing, but in flowy clothing, I look sort of PG. Help is needed!
Great tips, Me. Fowler! Thank you! I've had depression most of my life, but I feel like I'm coming out of it. I want to dress fashionable without looking frumpy and old ladyish...You know, like the stereotypical grandma. Even though I am a grandma, I want to put my best foot forward...and I realize I really haven't done that. So, thanks so much for this video! I'm so grateful I found your channel!
Really helpful video. I never thought about structure and flow before. I am 63, 4ft 11 and a very chunky apple 🍏 shape. I hate clothes shopping because nothing seems to look good on me. But I’ll try to remember these guidelines for future shopping expeditions.
Aly Art (another YouTuber) does a fantastic job of sharing this very concept which comes straight out of "Metamorphosis", a book by David Kibbe published in the 1980s. His concept of balancing Yin and Yang according to our body type has been the most helpful style concept in my whole life. I recommend it.
I’m one of those who can’t do the straight boxy look but I also appreciate I can’t be all frills and soft either. Finding clothes that are fashionable and and the basic shapes I need is challenging. I feel the clothing industry dismisses women of my age and body type - short and curvy. Length of tops, sleeves and hems are ridiculous. Speciality stores are pricey.
Schellea. Thank you. This explains why i dislike structured jackets. Now I know why! Having trouble finding a white jean jacket that has some shaping, and available in Australia or ships to Australia. Any clues? Could you please do a post about wearing flats and not looking frumpy. Would be a great help. 😁
I hate rules but this 'rule' is so true! And it also applies to your face features and hair. I have angular face and cannot wear my hair wavy or curly (I look really stupid, literally.) And If I want to wear something 'flowy' it has to be on the lower part of my body.
I have a jean jacket...one of my favorites, that has the structure of a waste and is actually just at hip length. I've had it for such a long time, but I get it. I FEEL good in that jacket, and now it makes sense why!!!!
No my style has not changed in years for me it’s shift dresses , court shoes, loafers , nude tights, well fitting jeans, white t shirts, white shirts , blazers I navy I black , leather blazer, real jewellery, Expensive handbags for day wear clutch bad for evening , nice makeup expensive perfume and perfectly cut bob hairstyle weight has not altered in over twenty years a UK size 10 ! I only use Estée Lauder skin care and makeup !
I've never really had a problem with choosing clothes BUT, thank you for pointing out "structure & flow", because this has really clarified things for me. I am 5'5" and right up until my 30's I was no more than 9 stone naturally, but after both of my children and hormonal problems my body changed from hardly any bust to a 36DD and more curvy shape, which at first I found very hard to deal with. Now at 56 I have learnt to dress appropriately for my age yet remain fashionable, but we're never too old to learn something new...I'm cool toned so avoid warm colours as they make me look 'blotchy' if worn next to the face. I love pastels of all colours, especially blue, blush or aqua and this for me is what casts a very flattering light onto my ageing complexion ☺️ The structure/flow rule really does work as it balances out proportions, when placed correctly, so it enhances the good bits and draws the eye away from the not so good bits. I love your videos, because they truly are inspiring for a slightly more mature lady, and who wants to let themselves go at any age, we're probably more confident in our skin armed with all that wisdom, gleaned from mistakes in our youth, so we should celebrate who we are. Thanks for injecting sophistication and glamour into middle age and beyond x
Do you feel better now that you’ve had your anonymous mean girl moment, Garden Girl and Colleen Roderick? Snorting out your judgmental and harsh put downs at someone who is just trying to promote positivity, kindness and acceptance in her own, unique way - you two must be loads of fun at parties. Go be your pathetic selves somewhere else.
A 50+ year old can wear flowy outfits if thats what makes them happy!!! Age doesnt dictate style. Personality does. Anyone watching this, especially us older women, go look up Iris Apfel!!! Wear the clothes that help reveal who you are. Its that easy!
Great concept. Is there a formula to adding a balance of these two looks in the same outfit for balance. For example I wore a Moto jacket skinny jeans and a button down blouse. It should have been a successful outfit but it wasn’t. I felt stiff and uncomfortable. What could I have done to hit that balance. Thank you!!
Hi Mary Smith! The balance is different for each body shape...Moto jackets can look very structured on some women and can make you feel stiff... Skinny jeans will not be the problem...and the shirt...Does it have any flow?
6:02 Now I know I don't feel right when I wore my denim jacket like this one, so straight. And I am 4'11, 53 yrs old and petite. I had one denim jacket that has curves at the back and loving it. Thanks for sharing new sub here.
If you are ewer 50 buy the best quality clothes you can afford,the same for the accessories ,good scarf dos the miracle, don't follow trends so much,just colors but opt for more neutral shades and go with color matching scarf ,crisp white shirt ,and don't ,wear tight clothes
This was really interesting to me. I am curvier and tend to gravitate towards structure as it holds everything in. However, this can tend to make me look quite 'butch'. But too much flow on my heavier body makes me look frumpy. This video has raised my awareness about the need to consider how best to combine the two elements. Thank you.
This is the best video ever! I'm turning 42 this month and it was really helpful because of your examples. I understand that you have a target public on youtube channel but this video is for EVERYBODY. I wish you all the best! thank you very much!
Love the structure and flow visuals you included! I'm a petite (5'1", 150 lbs, small shoulders, busty) hourglass shape and the peplum style top/jacket is what always works best. I try so hard to make a basic suit blazer work but it never looks right and accentuates all the wrong stuff ;)
I really liked your tips. I would love to see more on this topic..maybe examples from your closet? I cannot wear straight lines either. I get lost in them and end up looking bigger than I am. Bigger hips and thighs are my biggest problem..with no bust and a petite waist! Dressing is never easy!!
This makes so much sense. I work on my outfits all the time. I wear structured clothes with a twist...here I did not know my twist was the flow part. I am somewhere between a pear and hourglass...I don't tend to wear suit jackets but I bought a BCBG Max Azria black jacket with split sleeves...and I was like...this works for me...now I know why. Great Video...makes shopping so much easier Thank you
I was told to cut my hair at 50 but looking at you with long hair, you look so stunning. What is the rule about long hair and aging? Is there a "cut-off" time for having long hair? Please let me know. I am so confused.
I had waist length hair until I was 60. I only cut it when I lost a huge amount suddenly and developed a big bald spot on the back of my head. I still miss it 4 years later. I use minoxidil and biotin now and that helped a lot, but still not enough to grow it out again. So enjoy it while you have it; may it be forever.
I did cut a few inches and wear it a little past my shoulders one length, well with long layers. I hate my hair short. I am 52 and don’t plan on going shorter. Wear it how you like and feel comfortable. I even had it highlighted professionally for the first time. Things have definitely changed for the better imo.
I'm experiencing that, too. I have wasted money while trying to find clothes that look right. Tunics or tunic - like tops are my go -to as well as stretchy leggings, straight-legged pants, scarves, and sweaters that are drapey in the front. I even shop with a company called Duluth Trading Company that has sturdy clothes that are made for less-than-perfect bodies. Also, I'm only permitted low-wedge heels and supportive flats with a thicker sole per my rheumatolgist's orders. :-( ~Anastacia in Cleveland, OH, USA
Yes. I think the point is that our bodies change shape after menopause and a lot of us are totally lost about what to wear now. It's taken me years to adjust to a totally different shape than I had before.
Thanks Schell I love your vids!... <3 hugs from California! I bought a cute sweater today warm n cozy all clean lines , I`m tall n thin so im gonna soften it up with some distressed yet dark jeans and a soft pink suede low heeled opened toe slides? loafer type and a soft messy bun and maybe a short scarf for flow around the neck or perhaps a side tie head scarf around my hair! i couldnt pass up the seventies colors and softness! Even tho the lines are horizontal up top of the sweater but solid navy at the botton , perhaps that will draw the eye more T shaped ! I think your tips here will work with soft accesories as the mix! Have a great day and keep us rollin in vids please! you inspire us all(O:
@fabulous50s Hi Schell , finally getting back to you ! i took a pic but my hubby was`nt home and my bathroom lights messed up my photos of my outfit, but i`m gonna do another one when my hubby is home next time i wear it! I did try using your tips again today .I wore my jeans with a bit lighter wash across the front and mid calf boots that have a double strap around them to draw the eye outward and to try to break up the length of my very long legs then a sweater that was Turquoise blue with a wider gental swoop on the neckline to again draw the eye outward and my sweater is not form fitting and the length was just above the hip to widen me out a little. I just really like your style tips. Made me think more about adorning what i am blessed with and how to look more put together, Thanks (o;
Perfect advice that took me YEARS to learn hit or miss. I cannot tell you the number of very expensive jackets/blazers I bought when working that really did not suit me. My fav., jacket back then was a peplum waist one...nipped it with the curved lines below. I loved it and though it was gorgeous tourquoise, which is my fav color I could not wear it everyday due to the wonderful color. I would have given ANYTHING for other jackets in a similar style with nipped in waists. I have finally found both a jean jacket and a jean vest that DO nip in at the waist and look great on me. I will NEVER eliminate them from my wardrobe bec they took two years of dedicated hunting to find. Clothing manufacturers want us all to fit into boxy things ( so easily made) and we CAN get them on our curvier bodies in the right size, but they always make an hourglass look dumpy...ALWAYS.
It finally makes sense why I love the look of the straight tailored long blazer on Pinterest BUT after buying one again last week and returning it this week I now know why it didn’t work for me! I’m a super petite (4’ 10”) curvy woman....not a 6’ tall woman with straight lines 😂
