Yasmin Furmie, fabulous fifty-something and co-founder of fashion label SiSi, shares some advice
1. BE CONFIDENT
Feeling comfortable and confident with a good dose of self belief provides the framework for easy and adventurous styling. Depending on where one is in terms of personal growth, your self esteem provides the ability to wear what you want in the way you want. So at any age I’d say that’s my first style tip; working towards gaining that inner strength to know who you are and to feel comfortable with what you want to portray in terms of fashion.
2. EMBRACE LAYERING
Layering is often a good way to wear clothes that one may find too short. For example; layering a dress over a pair of trousers, belting it and throwing an oversized blazer over it, makes for a quirky, cool look. It can be worn at any age or stage in one’s life.
3. INVEST IN STANDOUT PIECES
Always invest in standout pieces. Shoes, handbags , jewellery. You can have the most mundane clothes, but the addition of great accessories definitely tilts a look in the stylish direction. Don’t be afraid to add. More is more in the style stakes. Be adventurous when it comes to clothes. Try that dress you said you’d never wear. After all, it’s theatre and shouldn’t you be the absolute star on that stage?
