OLDER WOMEN MARGINALISED BY THE FASHION INDUSTRY
As I have aged, I found that the needs of an older women are often disregarded or geared towards the illogical ideal of being younger. When I did a search on google, I found the most common question asked by older women centered around losing weight. Secondly the fashion industry emphasis on "being young" as a global goal for all women struck a chord in me. For starters there isn't a procedure that can turn back time, as much as Einstein's theories say otherwise. 100 percent of people age.
SIZE DOES MATTER
It depends .................................................................................
I also noticed that fashion jewelry is often too small for the plus sized woman. Chain lengths are often less than 45 cm, ring sizes greater than size 8 are less likely to be available at local markets and stores. What's more jewelry styles were more likely cater to the "blinged out and iced" choices.
THE HISTORY OF COCO CHANEL AND COSTUME JEWELRY
I have always loved Costume Jewelry and I am an avid fan of Coco Chanel in her determination to make Costume Jewelry the go to accessory for all. Fine jewelry has its benefits, but affordability, design choices and over all availability can act as access barriers for many.
TAKE BACK BEAUTIFUL
Older women often feel underrepresented in fashion and media, but with the right jewelry clothing and accessory choices, our unique beauty and sophistication can be emphasized. Jewelry can act as a representation of our self-expression, confidence, and timeless elegance in women of all ages, but especially those who have years of experience and wisdom. A piece of jewelry can say so much.
AGING IS A TIME FOR CELEBRATION AND REFLECTION
Reflecting on their life’s journey, jewelry pieces can help emphasize the confidence and strength of older women. Furthermore, jewelry can also act as a representation of elegant and timeless beauty, which is often forgotten or ignored in fashion and media. Whether it is a simple necklace, earrings, or a bracelet, jewelry can add a feminine flair and sense of sophistication to the look of an aged woman.
Jewelry can also be a reminder of the sentimental memories of previous generations. Many older women have jewelry that has been passed down through the generations representing heirlooms, family heritage, and a continuous line of beauty. This can bring a feeling of nostalgia and a deep connection to their past, further emphasizing their emotional wisdom and strength.
Whether it is for self-expression, timeless elegance, or as a reminder of the family’s heritage, jewelry can be the perfect accessory to emphasize the beauty and sophistication of aging older women.
DONT GO FOR SECOND BEST
Aging is a time to shine, don't settle for second best. Be all that you can be...Be you.
