When we say, “Age is only a number,” we mean it—even when it comes to fashion. Creativity and freedom in fashion is what looking and feeling good is all about. There’s a sense of identity wrapped up in how we dress. The evolution of your style from your 20s, 30s and 40s to your 50s and beyond can be subtle or dramatic. Depending on where life has taken you, you could either be completely hitting your stride, starting a new career, moving states (or countries) or even completely reinventing yourself. Whatever it may be, life is too short to worry about playing by the rules. Chris Bensko, founder and curator of Maddstyle boutique, has created a space to shop the trends you love and some you never knew you needed. Cheers to owning your style at any age!
