20 Youthful Styles You Should Insist on Wearing After 45

Let’s talk about what it’s like being a woman nowadays. There are tons of things out there saying what you should and shouldn’t wear. It’s like society tries to dictate what women can and cannot wear as they age (or at any age, honestly). That’s all crap. In fact, there’s no better way to stay young at heart than to embrace youthful fashion—bright colors and patterns and all.

Wearing something youthful is the perfect way to bring a little pep in your step and give you confidence without changing anything up. No one wants to feel old, and who cares about age? It’s just a number. I mean, who says you can’t wear skirts that hit above your knee? Also, while we’re on the topic, leggings ARE pants.

Let’s just forget whatever you’ve seen in magazines or online about “dressing for your age.” It’s all phony, anyway. These are 20 styles that are worth rebelling for and wearing as often as you can no matter your age. Basically, we’re saying that the moral of the story is that you should wear whatever makes you feel good! It doesn’t matter what it is because that’s your style, and you should flaunt it.
