The Anonymous Widower

Breaking the Fashion Rules

My late wife spent quite a bit on clothes and I still don’t know what to do with a lot of her business suits. Many are new or nearly so and are all the best makes. I suppose I had better take them to the charity shop.

An article in The Sunday Times Style section called Breaking The Fashion Rules would have summed her up well. She wore clothes that suited her figure, skirts on or above the knee and despite being in her late fifties, bikinis.  But as the article says, you have to make the right choices.

Did she have any secrets?

She always wore underwear that fitted and never peeked out from under a dress and she always bought her swimwear after trying on more than several in France! On the subject of underwear, how many women wear a £5 bra under a £200 dress?  Balance ladies!

I’ll admit that she was reasonably trim and fit, with good shoulders and I follow a similar route. That helped her dress younger than otherwise.  But I do think that it does everybody good to think that they look as best as they can.
