Being stylish over age 50 doesn’t mean dressing younger. It takes a balance of sassy and charm. Whatever your size, shape or age, confidence is key. Everyone has his or her own style personality. According to Celeste Hardnock at My Sister’s Circus, “It’s just about feeling good when you put something on. You know it and that inspires your confidence. Hence, be sassy! Fifty doesn’t equal frumpy ever!
