How to Dress at 70? Linda Rodin’s Outfits
In general, when it comes to fashion, there are no rules! And wearing what suits you is the best choice you can make. However, it all depends on your figure, skin tone and age. Although I am in favor of the “no rules” rule, I have to admit that there are age-appropriate clothes. Seventy is a wonderful age and as women we should not stop beautifying ourselves and taking care of our appearance. Being a woman is a blessing. There are so many chic accessories, shoes and clothes to choose from. And so many ways to match them to our personality. Whether you want to be more feminine, more casual or more elegant, we’ve gathered all the advice you need here. Find out how to dress at 70 from fashionista Linda Rodin!
What Colors to Wear?
What color to wear at 70? Let’s start with the clothing colors to avoid! Bright neon colors are to be avoided. Yes, they may have been all the rage in the 80s, but they are not flattering at all! Even for twenty-somethings. Pastels are an excellent choice. It’s not about dressing head to toe in pastels, but rather incorporating them into your style. For example, pastel blue suits all skin tones and is ethereally beautiful. It complements the skin and makes it look radiant. Combine it with white, pale pink or a neutral shade.
Red is another ideal choice for highlighting yourself and emphasizing your femininity. Yes, although it is quite a bold color, it can be extremely stylish and flattering. If you’re going for a more casual look, combine it with white. If you are more eccentric and like to experiment, orange, red and pink are unusual, but very trendy combinations. And if you want to stay classy and elegant and bring some harmony to red, pair it with black. This can be done by accessorizing, wearing different colored shoes, or wearing a red top or bottom. It all depends on your preferences.
How to Be Elegant at 70?
Elegance is generally something that we carry within us. It can be expressed in our manners, the way we speak or the way we dress. Let’s get straight to the point. The most elegant color is undoubtedly black. Black satin pants (or any other fabric) and a white shirt are timeless classics. However, if not well accessorized, it can look somewhat boring. Pair your outfit with heels (not necessarily high, low heels are back in style!), floral bag and a brooch. It will take your outfit to the next level and make you look sophisticated.
On the other hand, an all-black monochromatic outfit always looks great! Just be sure to add a lighter accent color to the mix so you don’t get lost in just one shade. Even Coco Chanel said: “When I find a color darker than black, I’ll wear it. But until then, I’m wearing black!“.
Who said that only cotton and linen were acceptable for older women? Wearing plush fabrics, clothes with feathers, mixing all kinds of colors can still make you look elegant. What you need to look for is the length. Let’s take a look at the outfit that Linda Rodin is wearing in the photo. Its main color is green, but in three different shades. She paired them with silver, burgundy, beige and yellow. Although bizarre at first glance, this outfit actually works really well and the shades blend together perfectly.
Can You Wear Jeans at 70?
There is a belief that jeans are only acceptable for teenagers and young adults, and I’m here to put an end to that madness! Jeans, if they are well chosen, are great and can highlight your curves. If you have wide hips, opt for flared jeans. This will balance your body and not draw attention to your thighs. If you have wide shoulders, opt for loose jeans. And if you are rather thin by nature, skinny jeans are the ones that will flatter you the most!
How to Wear Shorts and Short Skirts?
Let’s ask the burning question! Can you wear shorts, short skirts and short dresses at 70? At the DeaVita office, we don’t see why not. Neither does Linda Rodin. However, there is a catch! As our skin changes with age, it’s safe to assume that some of us won’t be comfortable exposing so much skin. That’s where pantyhose come in. They wrap around the legs and look utterly gorgeous! Mix colors with different tights to perfect your outfit.
What Shoes to Choose?
As we age, certain aches and pains appear and we can’t wear heels like we used to. If this is your case, don’t worry. There are plenty of other ways to stay fashionable at 70 and still feel comfortable. Did you know white sneakers can be paired with anything? Yes, it is the universal shoe for all outfits! And since it’s summer, I suggest you look at low heel sandals, which are very comfortable and go with everything.
Otherwise, high heels are an essential element of femininity and class. If you don’t like showing off your feet, wear socks in different colors to go with them! You can even wear socks with sandals, because it’s a big trend in 2023! Now let’s take a look at some of Linda Rodin’s other outfits!!
