3 timeless looks for women of any age

(NC) Whether you enjoy sporting the latest fashions or couldn’t care less about them, many women still worry about wearing something age-appropriate. While it may be tempting for some to keep up with trends to avoid looking out of touch, it’s not always great for our wallets or the environment. Here are three wardrobe staples you can continue to wear for years to come, no matter your age or stage of life.

The perfect denim jacket
The humble jean jacket is the perfect way to dress down your favourite all-purpose dress or make workwear separates look less stuffy – and the principle holds whether you’re 16 or 60. It’s perfect for transitional weather as the seasons change.

Find one that suits your shape and you’ll be reaching for it whenever you need another layer in the spring, summer and fall.

Simple sneakers
Sneakers are the best of both worlds in terms of style and comfort. You can run around town or chase after children or stroll through the office in them in your younger years. But you can also keep walking confidently in sneakers years after you give up on uncomfortable heels and unsupportive flats. They provide the proper cushioning you need at any age, but even more so in your golden years. You can’t go wrong with a pair in white, which goes with everything. Although, branching out with an eye-catching colour can add just the right amount of fun to any outfit.

The little black…bathing suit
We all know the little black dress is a wardrobe must-have, but another staple to have in black is the swimsuit. Whatever your age or your lifestyle, you’ll need a swimsuit at some point. And while swimwear is a great area to experiment with wild patterns, cuts and colours, just like a black dress or sweater, a black bathing suit will always look current and appropriate, whether you favour a high-neck one-piece like La Vie en Rose’s cross-front style or a cheeky bikini.
