As for the style of seniors here in a smaller, conservative city like London, you certainly don't have the variety that you do in a city like New York, but as I found when I went to one of the Seniors' Dances held at the end of each month in Cherryhill Mall (which serves a large senior's community here in London) there are some pretty amazing and inspiring men and women out there who are doing their part to demonstrate that style is about more than just what you're wearing, and even if your hips don't move as easily as they used to, there's no reason to not take a turn on the dance floor. And my thanks to Sandra for the title of this post!
I could not take my eyes off this couple on the dance floor; I'm sure they have been dancing together their entire lives. I love the way his hand is gently but firmly placed on her back, guiding her across the floor. She is dressed so simply, but the combination of black, grey and white with the patterned stockings is timeless and elegant.
This woman was a part of the crowd watching the dancers, and immediately caught my eye in her black coat and hat accented with leopard print
This woman stood out in pale pink and turquoise. She had a brooch pinned to the front of her pink hat, and her lipstick and nail polish matched the rest of her outfit. I told her how nice I thought she looked, and she replied, "I guess it was worth the time I took to get ready". Yes, it was--I know she brightened my day considerably.
Given the age group of the crowd, I expected to see more hats on the men, but this was the only one.
