There are some women who, despite their age, have a quality about them that feels effortless and ageless. You get the impression that they were dressing the same way 20 years prior and likely looked just as sartorially relevant during that decade as they do today. Their sense of style has more to do with knowing what works for them and sticking to it than it does their age. That's not to say they don't dress for their age, but they don't let "what you're supposed to wear" dictate how they present themselves to the world.
Intrigued by what goes into achieving this timelessness that some women seem to naturally possess, we set out on a mission to study them with the purpose of honing in on specific tips. Ultimately, we narrowed it down to seven "rules" that they all follow. Curious?
