Just as one size does not fit all, one wardrobe does not fit all. Unlike any other wardrobe book, the process outlined in Dressing Nifty After Fifty is highly individualized, asking the reader to start by making a list of her activities during a typical 14-day period. Next, she'll discover how to build a wardrobe on three basic colors, enhance her body shape with clothes, look thinner and taller, add spice to her outfits with her most flattering colors, and combine comfort and style with her shoes. To help the reader complete her ideal wardrobe plan, tips are included for closet cleanup, clothing maintenance, shopping, grooming, travel, and ways to stay gorgeous as time goes by.
By adopting this system of dressing, the reader will have a wardrobe for all of her activities. She will find that by concentrating on the quality, rather than the quantity, of her wardrobe, she will love and wear everything that she owns. Most important, she will gain a sense of control over her life, giving her the freedom to spend her energy and time on the things she wants to do and the people she loves.
When I calculated a few years ago that the amount of clothes I owned was increasing each year by geometric proportions, I made the decision to get real about my wardrobe. Although part of me wanted to keep on buying more, I simply was tired of owning so many clothes. I hated to open my closet door and see my pretty clothes crammed together, some with their price tags still on, waiting to be worn. I became determined to have a closet with only those clothes that were suitable for all of my lifestyle needs and, at the same time, fashionable and up-to-date.
My challenge was to develop an effective, easy way to figure out exactly what clothes I needed and how to be in style without sacrificing comfort and fit. After some painful years of many trials and errors, I came up with a foolproof system to create a simple, suitable, and stylish wardrobe.
And so can you! If you follow the step-by-step process outlined in Dressing Nifty After Fifty, you can have the perfect wardrobe that takes you anywhere for any occasion.

Intrigued by the Cover...I am over 50 and do not wish to dress as if I am 25. I live an work in a conservative town. I deal with professionals and non-professionals. The illustrations indicate sensible, Career-wear basics that can also be converted to Casual. I have sewn for almost 50 years, and love the Wardrobe patterns that are produced by all of the major pattern companies (and a few of the independent designers). This book helps to figure the best number of pieces, and the best combinations. It reminds me of my well-loved, well-worn classic read from the 80s: Dressing Rich.Was this review helpful?

Nifty is not a word I associate with style and fashion. It's more of a descriptive for a self cleaning oven. I'm admittedly judging this book by its cover. Sorry. I'm over 50, have a long career in the fashion industry and am shopping for books to read on the topic of Over 50, Fabulous, and Fashionable in order to give a workshop on the subject.
