The Right to Not Be Invisible

By: Roberta and Helene

Magazines dictate what to wear in our 50’s, 60’s, 70’s and sadly ignore the 80’s. Team Stylists take offense to this cookie cutter approach. We like to explore outside the bounds of predictability. Older women are one of the most desirable consumer groups and many achieve their greatest success after the age of 50! Five years ago, how many of us knew what a blog was? We used to blab. Look who’s blogging now!

As we continue to learn and re-invent ourselves (a la Caitlyn Jenner) we must not ignore the importance of updating our style. Team Stylists encourage you to step out of the box, break some rules, push the envelope but keep within the parameters of good taste. Always be mindful of your body type, personality, and how you want to be seen in your world. Fashion promotes new trends every season causing the dilemma “Can I or Can’t I? Should I or Shouldn’t I?" Yes you can and yes you should! Look to designers for inspiration, pluck out those modern touches that work for you and leave the rest behind. If it’s Boho Chic you like but don’t want to look like Cher you can still wear a pair of JBrand flare bottom jeans with a shaped blazer or an Iro leather jacket. There are “fringe benefits” in a crossbody bag by Rebecca Minkoff. You don’t have to be a hippie head to toe. Punctuate your style by developing the art of mixing. If you love color and patterns, try pairing stripes with florals. Go for it but be aware that there is a method to the madness.

Express yourself! Do you emulate a Jane Fonda or a Betsey Johnson. Annette Bening or a Diane Keaton? Look at Iris Apfel, who at 94, takes accessories to the max and never made rules because she said, “I would only break them.” Age should not be the determining factor for having fun with fashion. WHO WANTS TO BE INVISIBLE? Not our women, all over 60 and some over 70!

Testimonials 

Helene and Roberta of Team Stylists are a dream come true for me. I am an artist, traveler and amateur chef. I like simple, edgy, no fuss clothing which allows me to move around with ease. They do a superior job of making me look hip and youthful without looking too young...an admirable quality to have as stylists and an important quality to have in the youth driven market of Los Angeles. They have culled together a wardrobe for me from all price points, which allows me to be on trend without being too trendy. And it doesn't hurt that they are lovely, funny, smart women. I could not be more thrilled.
