Why We Need To Take Our Fashion Cues From 57 Year Old Ines de la Fressange.

Our style changes as we get older but that doesn’t mean we no longer care about being fashionable. Meet Ines de la Fressange. She is the face of French fashion according to Karl Lagerfeld – as well as his muse. She began her career in 1975 and since then, transformed the way fashion views Parisian style. In 2013, Ines re-launched her own personal brand, Ines De La Fressange Paris.

In a Vogue UK article this past December, Fressange says, “It’s not that I want to make a revolution – “I’m just looking for simple things, not boring,” pointing out how her age provides inspiration. “It’s hard to be 57. You don’t want to look like granny used to when she was 57 but there’s no way you want to look like someone who is 20, because you’re not. When things are good, it’s universal – 16 to 60,” she says.

When you see Ines in her personal style – not on the catwalk ripping the runway – she might be in a tailored blazer with a stunning scarf, or a printed dress with loafers (not the typical heel), or a great pair of jeans with a blue or white button up. Her look is effortless and it no doubt helps to be rail thin but we can all learn from her simple, clean style. Just make sure you get the right fit.

Supermodel, Designer, Fashionista… Inès de la Fressange is every bit the style icon for women 50 plus. You can copy Ines’s style with a few key pieces; trench coat, jeans that flatter your figure, a pair of good flats, and some basic button ups in white, navy and black. Put your own stamp on the look with a piece of fine or vintage jewelry, a printed scarf, or a well-constructed timeless bag.
