This video is packed with great, timeless tips and endearing ladies.
It’s hard not to love a video comprised entirely of women who remind us of our sweet grandmas. Allure does a fantastic job here of showing their viewers how sassy, smart and wise these centenarian fashionistas are. From jewelry, to hair tips, these ladies have seen and done it all, and they’re not shy about sharing what they know.
When in doubt, find creative ways to do your hair.
Frances Friedman is 103 and still loving life. A gorgeous lady with an infectious smile, she grins for the camera and lets everyone know that she loves a “tailored” look and has no reservations about getting inventive with her hair. What does that entail? Why, tucking her locks up underneath her wig with a chopstick, of course.
You go, Frances.
It's ok to go with what works. Especially if that means tossing nylon that won't cooperate.
Another sweet lady in a smart-looking jacket lays some wisdom down when it comes to pants. (At 107, this fashionista’s got some serious fashion experience under her belt.) She says she’d always relied on hose, that is, until the day she realized pulling on a pair of slacks is oh so comfortable and convenient. We know some people still swear by their L’Eggs, but no one blames the lady who puts pantyhose runs behind her and grabs a pair of yoga pants instead. Comfort. It’s important.
General hygiene is the best way to start any beauty routine.
Clothes, jewelry and makeup are all essential parts of defining our styles, but a great look starts with a good scrub. Several of the beautiful centenarians reminded viewers that washing, brushing, clipping, and other self-care routines are a good base for a polished look. One wise lady’s beauty must-have?
She reaches for the cold cream.
If you want to find your happy place, throw on a few accessories.
A savvy jewelry enthusiast, one adorable lady, who proudly states that she’s 100 years old and ten months, says that adding sparkle is important as she ages. She says,”I think when you get older, you wanna have a little more glitter.”
No argument here. Dripping in diamonds and eye-catching bracelets isn’t a terrible way to go through life.
