This Parisian woman was featured in March on The Sartorialist. Her outfit generated buzz along these lines:
- Is she dressed “appropriately” for her age?
- could she wear this with credibility outside Paris?
- what is “age appropriate” dressing?
- who cares… ?
I love her attitude and smile. I love the Converse, sweater, scarf; but the pants and belt wouldn’t work for me. I agree that in the U.S. it’s harder for women over forty to wear “young” clothes. Not sure what age appropriateness is, except that wearing what we like it the most important thing.
What do you think?
