3/4 length sleeves are flattering and can knock off a few years

I find shrugs that tie under the bust with either 3/4 or long sleeves can also make you look a bit younger.

Some cardigans can age you (not all though !)choose carefully.

Now something that is not a fashion tip but something that makes me mad.

Why are nearly every clothing catalogues geared for the size 14 and up ?

Not all us golden oldies are fatties. I am a size 8 and although I can get clothing in that size, I really have to search. Yes, ebay comes to the rescue, but it is nice sometimes to be able to get small sizes in more high street stores.

If I had Mary Portas's money I would open a store with skinnies in mind and stock flattering styles for the more mature lady like me.

Angela has a point. Three quarter sleeves are flattering whether one has plump, or skinny arms.

I also am a size 8 (10 in some brands). It's not easy finding smaller sizes especially if one is around 5 foot.
