Another classy but not boring hue is beige. As a neutral, it’s so easy to mix and match.

If you are petite, pair up a light beige top with a darker shade of brown pants to help unite your figure and help you look elongated and taller visually.

Of course, you can also team beige with brown, white, and other off-white hues.

I’d say keep it casual yet decent with nice tops.

To enjoy your lunch without sucking the tummy the whole time, I will opt for a loose-cutting one.

That said, the peplum top is the best option of all time.

Featuring a stripe of extra fabric gathered along the high waist, it just fully covers the food baby but somehow still accentuates your waist area.

Below I’ve handpicked two high-quality pieces for you. Check them out!

The embroidered mesh and pleated design are a 10/10.

And of course, I’ve picked the plus-size-friendly peplum top also.

This one comes with all different patterns and also solid hues. But I thought this leopard one was pretty fun!

5. What to wear to a 60th birthday dinner party? Bold prints!

As for a birthday dinner with all family and friends, dress to impress.

For chilly days, you will need elegant outerwear as a statement piece.

Bye-bye frumpy jacket and welcome to a Chanel-inspired tweed jacket to level up your look.

In the 60s, dressing well was all about picking sophisticated and tasteful fabrics like tweed, silk, satin, woven, and more.

This lady just elevate the outfit tenfolds with the elegant neckscarf.


This is so random… BUT

hey ladies, why not quickly do an affirmation and feel instantly better?

This new year, I’m trying not only to share fashion tips but come up with ways to instill body positivity in all women who are reading my articles – aka YOU!

Instead of just reading it, say it loud or murmur the quotes (if you are in public) to maximize the effect.

Ready? Here we go.

I love my body. She is my forever home and sanctuary.

Sassy isn’t a shape, it’s an attitude.

Work out because I love my body – not because I hate it.

I can love myself and change my body at the same time. No guilt about that.

It is completely normal to have tummy rolls. I come to realize that social media isn’t showing the reality… at all.

My happiest moments in life had nothing to do with the way my body looked.

I don’t have to be pretty like her, I can be pretty like …ME.

I AM perfect imperfection.

What are your thoughts on that? I hope that makes you feel better (as you deserved).

Please help me pass the body positivity message in your community. #womenhelpwomen

Alright, now keep on reading!

When it comes to shoes, comfort is key for the 60th birthday.

I know it’s tempting to wear high heels, but let’s be real, walking them for hours during the party is nothing but torture.

If you insist, at least pick the one with a low chunky sole.

And let’s not forget there are tons of comfy yet aesthetic shoe options out there.

Think espadrilles sneakers and embellished pointy flats that add a dose of elegance to your style.

10. Statement accessories for a 60th birthday party

If you want to end your look to a dressier end, how can we miss out on the accessories?

At the age of 60, we want to look classy and refined. Instead of throwing away all chunky jewelry, keep one or two statement pieces.

My favorite is the long necklace.

Not only does it look so feminine and elegant, but the long necklace also helps elongate the figure as a whole and makes you look put together.

For the ladies who are feeling extra playful, go for the chunky necklace!

I love how this lady match the necklace and pants in same hue – just so sleek and put together.
