“What are some outfit ideas that you might suggest to conceal broad shoulders and big arms?” — Anonymous
In my opinion, an off-the-shoulder top is one of the most flattering styles for women. The straight-across neckline create a clean and slimming look, no matter your body type. Another suggestion is to opt for tops in darker shades and ruffle-like sleeves.

“I'm 59, and I consider myself to be very stylish. Am I too old to wear leather? Pants, skirt, or dress?” — Gwen
Absolutely not. You can wear leather at any age; it’s about how you style the sleek piece that makes it age appropriate. Take a note from one of our favorite leather lover, Carine Roitfeld, for inspiration.
