Episode 91: 7 Steps To Style for Over 45’s


7 Steps To Style for Over 45's and building your wardrobe with Imogen Lamport

Why is it that we can have a wardrobe stuffed with clothes, yet still feel like we have absolutely nothing to wear?

Imogen Lamport explained it to me this way: women who make that kind of statement have one of two types of wardrobes: the wardrobe full of clones and the wardrobe full of orphans.

The owner of the Clone-filled wardrobe sees something that they like and then buys three in every colour. It works for a while but eventually, you get really sick of looking the same every day.

The owner of the wardrobe full of orphans (me!) tends to buy things that they like with no thought of what other clothes they own that might go with that piece. They might also like to buy statement pieces (also me!).

Imogen tells us how we can move beyond this, how to work out which colours are going to suit us, and also explains why there’s no standardisation in the dress sizes (and the reason is not what you might think!)
