Trainers are no longer just for the gym. Over the past few years, they’ve become one of the most versatile fashion essentials, taking wearers from the supermarket to offices and smart restaurants.
Go for an understated pair in plain white with minimal decoration, and wear them with jeans, tailored trousers or midi skirts and dresses.
A good pair of jeans
Jeans are a great basic at any age, but your expectations and needs change over time. While flares may have been your go-to in your 20s and high-waisted tapered shapes in your 30s, jeans for the 60-something woman should be less ‘fad’-driven.
Invest in a sturdy straight-leg pair or the popular premium Mom style of jeans to see you throughout the day.
A classic watch
A great watch is like furniture in that you live with it day-in and day-out, so it’s important to choose something that you really love that delivers on both quality and style.
The Telegraph’s jewellery editor Sarah Royce-Greensill, suggests going for a timepiece by a traditional Swiss watchmaker like Longines or Tissot. Go for something that looks good with your jewellery but don’t feel you can’t wear silver with gold. If you have your heart set on a Cartier or Rolex, consider buying one at auction for the best bargains.
