Having Fun Dressing Mature

If I had one wish I would wish for more wishes, and then I would wish that I could relive the 60s and 70s as my ultimate ‘Hey Day’. Surely you understand where I’m coming from when I say no one rocked fashion harder than Wilona Woods from Good Times and the chicks from Charlie’s Angels. It’s hard not to be consumed by the era. I love the platform shoes, the huge afros, and the revolution of fashion that shook the world out of its stereotypical habits.

Compared to the current fashions, everyone has a little throw-back in their DNA, just check your closet. Stacked stilettos, that leather jacket that feels heavier than it looks, wide legged or boot-cut jeans, ruffled collars and sleeves are ideas that may have happened at night, but it wasn’t last night. I might be telling my age on this, but it’s comical how back in the day, some of our current fashions we’re wearing were considered ‘old people clothes’ but now, not so much.

You can easily blow the bank, but rocking a vintage wardrobe can be very inexpensive and even easier to build. You can find a lot of old clothes at thrift shops, Good Wills, and things from family members going through their closets. Variations of t­-shirts like solid color V-necks, wide colorful stripes, or 60’s/70’s logo tees also make good looks for a quick vintage build. Cutting shorts out of some old jeans and rubbing sandpaper on them (ideally on the front, but it’s your world) is another way to add vintage to your look. The options are plentiful so do what works best for you, enjoy the post.

  1. Great article. I just don’t get men who wear this. Will you do a everyday man post in the near future?
