This is her favourite coat – it’s a ‘hero’ piece which Jan gets many compliments on, and was definitely worth the investment.
“I think with style as you age the term appropriate really comes into being but in my case it is age appropriate . I remember some one saying to me , if you have done it once think twice about doing it again .
It is a great rule and can be applied to trends that some of us think we may suit like smock tops , outrageous platform heels, revival waistcoats or anything else that was great on our bodies in the 60 and 70s but not so wonderful now.
However rules are meant to be broken and dresses are back for this spring summer , particularly the shift dress , and these can look fabulous depending on how you wear them. Perhaps not as short as we used to wear them but they will look wonderful over slim trousers , or if you have perfectly slim beautiful legs, try leggings , or slim jeans .
Knowing your true dressing style is the surest way to keep on the right track for expressing your self as who you really are , and dressing appropriately.” Jan Fisher
