Refers to style or fashion that is not visually connected to any age group and looks attractive on those still relatively young and those much older.

According to top New York stylist and author, Kendall Farr, author of “Style Evolution: How to Create Ageless Personal Style in Your 40s and Beyond”, “The goal as you get older is to look effortless, sophisticated, current and cool. It’s about not looking too young or like you’ve given up.

“A woman with ageless style looks individual and plugged-in to what is current, BUT she interprets things her own way. She has a good understanding of what the trends are and makes the right ones work for her. She looks grown-up AND youthful. The heart and soul of the book lies in the trend section. There you’ll see how little it takes to actually look current.”

According to Farr, Baby boomer Women seeking to dress with ageless style ought to learn to “Choose flattering shapes for your body and look for interesting fabrics. Buy fewer, better things and embrace the power of clothing.”

Ageless Wellness is the concept of building healthy lifestyle habits, no matter what your age. The goal is to feel energized and yet able to truly relax and enjoy life. Tenets include self care, movement, nutrition, and mindset.
