As women working in retail, we often talk about trends. What's trending this fall? What trends are coming back? Within the culture of trends, though, there is often a mentality that certain styles are exclusively for young women.
We argue that fashion is for everyone! Regardless of your age, you can rock any outfit. Clothes are meant to empower you and your outfit should bring attention to the beautiful woman you are. Wear something that you love!
So we had some of the powerhouses behind Antique Garden pick their favorite outfit and share why they love it so much. Whether in her twenties or her sixties, these pieces make each of these women feel confident, beautiful, and authentically herself.
Barbara is the owner of Antique Garden and the beloved shop dog, Leo. When choosing her outfit she immediately threw on this long floral tank by Dex. It's flowy enough to cover the areas she is most self-conscious about while still remaining flattering. Even though it's a floral print, the colors accent fall hues like the olive dress she layered over it and the pewter gray in her booties.
Bobi "loves a good button-down," and she tends to gravitate more towards a flowy top and some skinny jeans to balance an outfit. Instead of normal denim, she liked the olive pants because of the moto stitching across the knees. Plus, it added a pop of color to her otherwise monochromatic outfit.
Robin used to work at Antique Garden (and we miss her terribly)! So, of course when she said she was in town, we had to feature her style. She picked out a this flowy long sleeve striped top because it made her feel comfortable while accenting her body shape. The leather moto jacket gave her look the final touch to show her sassy, edgy side while dressing up her casual t-shirt and black jeans.
Nikki is all about "simplicity with a little flare." This olive suede shift dress is a simple throw-on, but the detail down the front makes it eye-catching. She decided to snag a pair of the Free People Hybrid Heel Booties too, which she said are "comfortable, high quality, and bold" while still remaining versatile.
Mariah is the co-owner of Antique Garden with her mom, Barb. She is a "gypsy at heart" and loves putting together stunning looks. From the fringe cardigan to the brown suede knee-high boots, no one rocks it quite like her. She adores her Free People Annka Boarder dress because of the gorgeous patterns and effortless silhouette. Plus, it is the perfect layering dress with leggings once the cooler months arrive.
Connie is a dear friend to the store and frequently drops in just to say hello. The Magic Mystery Tunic by Free People is one of her favorites. From the unique color palette, to the bell sleeves and intricate patterns, it was a must-have. And though the Trevur Booties by Steve Madden intimidated her at first because of the heel, she wore them anyway. After a few laps around the store, she raved about their comfort and the buckle detail.
Kira is a current college student and has been at Antique Garden for the past two years. Instead of rocking her usual basic t-shirt and some jeans, she replaced her tee for a Rosewood Tunic by PPLA, layered with a Free People Bralette and an oversized sweater. She could not resist wearing a chunky knit during her favorite season - Fall - and chose the tunic for its gorgeous wine color and flattering cut for her long torso.
At Antique Garden, we want you to rock your outfit and embrace the beautiful woman you are, regardless of your age or body shape!
