Mom Needs To Act and Dress Age Appropriate
Oct. 29, 2015
My mom just turned 65 years old and is retired. My father passed away 10 years ago so she doesn’t act or dresses her age at all. She dresses more like a younger person and dates younger men. When is it time to become age appropriate and tone down your look? Need to Be Age Appropriate, Washington
Dear Need To Be Age Appropriate:
What is age appropriate anyway? The things that your mother do or wear is probably what makes her unique so why try to change it? She is retired so she is not in anyones’ workplace looking like she does. No one really want to be a carbon copy of other people so let her live her own life.
According to many women, at age 59 you should ditch high heels, red lipstick, tight clothes and false nails and seek to look more natural but many people are saying in your 40s it’s time to tone down.
Every woman has had her own moments of confronting age in fashion and beauty trends. Many women say they feel beautiful at any age and are happy to let nature take its course without resorting to extreme anti-aging measures.
Many feel they look younger than they really are and would never consider any type of cosmetic surgery, so again let your mother live her own life. If she is out there staying mobile, then that's the important thing because by age 65, many Seniors have resorted to living sedentary lifestyles -- so kudos to your mom for being unique.
