article_fashionable-forever.jpgWe received overwhelming response for last year’s “Stylish at Every Age” feature so, naturally, we’re bringing it back! This time around, we're showing you how to wear the little white dress, the motorcycle jacket, the cropped pants, the midi skirt, and the v-neck sweater. We’ve taken the guesswork out of dressing for your age, so you won’t have to worry about a thing.


1_fashionable-forever.jpgLITTLE WHITE DRESS
The softer sister of the LBD, the little white dress is a breeze to pull on.
Lace dress, P2,098, ForMe

20s: Swap your army green parka for one in a sweet cotton candy shade to add a dose of good cheer to an overcast day.
Parka, P1,795, Forever 21; bracelet, P399, Parfois; ankle boot, P1,599, Celine

30s: Pop on a bright statement necklace over your dress, and strap on a pair of delicate shoes for an ensemble worthy of the Duchess of Cambridge.
Necklace, P590, Parfois; bow wedge, P1,499, Celine

40s: Conscious of your arms? A chic cover-up racks up style points and does the job of concealing trouble areas. Bouclé blazer, P3,395, Warehouse; ring, P279, Parfois; bow kitten heel, P1,199, Celine



2_fashionable-forever.jpgV-NECK SWEATER
Think of the lightweight sweater as an alternative to the white t-shirt: just as versatile, just as wearable.

20s: Stomp around town in a foolproof combo of easy shorts, comfy sneakers, and one eye-catching accessory.

30s: Look polished even in your downtime in a pair of tailored shorts and elegant quilted flats.
Belted shorts, P915, Forever 21; earrings, P349, Parfois; sling-back flat, P899, So! Fab

40s: The basic knit benefits from a slinky scarf-print skirt and minimal ankle-strap heels that work for meetings and dates.

3_fashionable-forever.jpgMOTORCYCLE JACKET
Embrace Fall 2013’s grunge aesthetic with a leather jacket—wear it while the weather permits.
Leather jacket, P3,945, Topshop

20s: Strike the perfect balance between feminine and boyish by wearing a neat floral skirt with tougher pieces.
Sleeveless button-down, P2,795, Warehouse; floral origami skirt, P3,045, Topshop; ring, P279, Parfois; heeled boot, P1,499, So! Fab

4_fashionable-forever.jpgCROPPED PANTS
Get a head start on the new season by injecting outfits with the standout shade: pink.
Slim fit pants, P1,745, Dorothy Perkins

20s: Channel the Pink Ladies of classic film Grease in a retro Americana-inspired outfit—but in peppy pants instead of a bomber jacket.
Graphic t-shirt, P498, ForMe; denim jacket, P1,435, Forever 21; earrings, P279, Parfois; d’Orsay flat, P1,135, Forever 21

30s: Need to ward off the chills? You can’t go wrong with a roomy knit, especially one in timeless stripes.
Striped sweater, P2,295, Promod; earrings, P349, Parfois; studded loafer, P899, So! Fab

40s: A chambray shirt has all the makings of a modern classic. Dress it down with loafers; dress it up with pointy toe pumps.

MIDI SKIRT
Eschew shorter lengths for a demure calf-grazing style, another look big on the Fall runways.
Color block skirt, P2,150, The Ramp Crossings

20s: A midi skirt may not be a conventional choice for nights on the town, until you wear it with a skin-baring crop top.
Sequined crop top, P2,745, Topshop; ring, P329, Parfois; peeptoe wedge, P1,799, So! Fab

30s: Enhance the skirt’s prim and proper qualities with a buttoned-up lace blouse and sensible yet stylish pumps. Lace sleeve blouse, P3,395, Warehouse; ring, P449, Parfois; color block pump, P1,530, Forever 21

40s: Dress like an Old Hollywood actress in a simple boatneck knit topped off with a gem-encrusted necklace.
