Age is just a number when it comes to fashion

Age is just a number when it comes to fashion

Posted by Kristin on Mar 5th 2019

As the calendar turns each January, one of the first things many of us do is think about how old we are going to be in the coming year. So what does age have to do with fashion? I say nothing! One of the most common comments I hear from women over 40 who come into the store is "I love that shoe but I'm too old to wear it. It’s for younger girls". My response is always the same, "You are never too old to wear any shoe that makes you feel great!”

When it comes to shoes, fashionable people know that there is no age limitation on the style you can wear, as long as your feet are comfortable. My inspiration for this mindset comes from spending a lot of time in Paris – my favorite city on earth. Besides the beautiful architecture, the amazing cuisine, and delicious wine, I LOVE the fashion mindset of Parisian women.  Parisian women don’t throw in the towel as they get older.  They don't cede the fashion reigns to the young. Instead, they serve as role models to younger women and show them that age is just a number when it comes to being on trend.

One of the best trends in women’s footwear is the continued popularity of the athleisure category. This category of shoes is all about trendy comfort.  It's not only acceptable, but cool to wear funky sneaker-inspired footwear and comfortable booties. This new style allows women of all ages to be on trend while still being comfortable. My advice to all women is don't let your age stop you from trying on a shoe – let your feet tell you what works and what doesn't work. After all… Age is just a number!
