What do you mean, “I’m too old”?

What do you mean, “I’m too old”?

Far too often at La Glamour Style, we hear groups of women saying things like “Oh, I’m too old to wear high heels!”

 

Here’s the truth though: you’re never too old to wear heels! That’s because there is no age for fashion.

Age is just a number—it shouldn’t play a factor in what you wear, nor the kind of shoes you’re “supposed” to buy. In fact, I believe age should never be the reason for not buying what you like, or what makes you happy.

 

Outside of La Glamour Style, I am also a hair stylist. I have had many clients tell me at my salon that when they turn 40, they need to cut their hair short, or stop colouring it. My response to them: if you’re ready, comfortable and feel beautiful doing so, than absolutely—go ahead and make the change! But if you’re not ready, don’t do it—and don’t do it because of your age.

 

I have to admit, I strongly disagree that because of your age you need to significantly change the fashions you like. The people who make up these fashion “rules” have no clue what style and fashion are! Above all else, fashion is what you love and how you feel; it’s what makes you feel beautiful inside and out, no matter your age!

 

Now, if we were talking about 4.5-inch heels or high-platform shoes, I may not advise these to a 75-year-old woman. It’s not because of age, but more about comfort and steadiness of the shoes. Instead, I would probably recommend a 1.5-inch shoe to that womanor 3 inches at the most, if she was used to walking in heels.

If you have a condition that stops you from buying high heeled shoes, it’s completely understandable not to wear them…but that has nothing to do with age!

 

You can look good, be happy and feel great at any age. So forget what the so-called fashion rules-makers say—go with what you love
