Eclectic. I turned 60 recently so I am aware that certain trends I followed even when I was in my 50s have to be edited slightly. But this does not mean that I have to take the "fun" out of it. I still mix patterns, and I think at any age a great statement necklace and red lipstick is in order.
I have a mix of traditional and off-the-beaten-path places to shop. For classics, I still go to Ann Taylor and Lord & Taylor (love that place). J Crew stays on trend and can be appropriate for a wide range of ages and tastes. Their sister store, Madewell, has some terrific stuff (a bit more youthful). For a budget that's a little larger, I love Rebecca Taylor. And, if you wander down Mott or Mulberry Streets in NoLita, those boutiques can offer a great, one-of-a-kind find. For formal wear, I've had a lot of luck at Nicole Miller. No one does rouching better.
Favorite Styling Moment
A couple of years ago, I partnered with Ann Taylor and The Susan B. Koman Foundation for a "Salute to Survivors." Fifteen women surviving cancer (and at different stages of recovery) were chosen. In a 2 week period I got to meet and wardrobe, head to toe, these amazing warriors. Ann Taylor then sponsored a Fashion Show/Benefit for the cause. The women got to strut their stuff - families cheering and crying all the while - and we raised more than $10,000 for research. All the ladies got to keep their outfits and, as you can imagine, they were quite a sight to behold. These gals remain my heroes.
