Fashion Over 50: Importance of Wearing Confidence

It is important for me to wear confidence every day whether I am working or spending time with family.  Confidence is empowering and attractive…and obtainable for anyone! On this day, I was invited to be part of a panel discussion about magazines before the local chapter of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA).

When all eyes are on me, I especially will select an outfit I am going to feel great in and not one I am constantly going to be thinking about. A confident look is everything when doing a presentation.  It makes everything about the event effortless…smiling, approaching others, and speaking with authority and strength.  Confident styles are part of your arsenal for success.

This is why I have invested in a few beautiful pieces from Eileen Fisher and sold at Dillards.  I wore an Eileen Fisher jacket which I love in this beautiful brown, and EF pants, and an EF tunic tank.  The shoes are one of my Total Motion By Rockport pointed toe flats,(comfort and style are my kind of confidence)  This outfit sent the messages I desired to send at this presentation…strong and intelligent. 

The necklace is a special piece I have owned for several years, by designer Paulette Martsolf Jewelry.

When you need a boost of confidence what do you reach for first in your closet?  We would love to know!

Happy Friday! And Keep Smiling!

  1. Wow, you definitely look confident and radiant! I have a horrible habit of reaching for all black and only black for any and all occasions, and it’s a habit I’m trying hard to break, but I’ve done it since I was a teen, lol!

    I know you’re mostly in black in these photos, but that fabulous jacket and statement necklace just liven it up fabulously!

    1. Thank you so much, Tara. I do wear ALOT of black, but I am a huge fan of statement accessories and, like you, I have been mixing it up more lately. I seldom wear all black these days and this brown coat is just a favorite piece of mine.

  2. Pam you always look polished as well as stylish. But, it’s your smile that really exudes your confidence!! Great outfit and amazing necklace!!

  3. You look terrific! At the risk of echoing others, I have to say that the jacket and necklace are stunning. Talk about confidence!!

    1. The Total Motion line is just the best! Very, very comfortable and beautiful at the same time. I own several pair! Thanks so much…
