I feel that woman in North America, as they get older, limit themselves too much with respect to their choice of colour and styles. In other countries, such as Africa or India, women wear exuberant colours and accessories no matter what their age.
I believe that women shouldn't let themselves be influenced by what other's say or by what other's deem as being "appropriate attire". Wear whatever makes you feel happy and beautiful! Confidence is the sexiest quality!
