Q: Am I too old to try the “studs” trend at 52?
A: Absolutely not. I would, however, tone down any trend if you are worried about it being inappropriate for your age. If you work in a field that isn’t fashion or art related, you should dress professionally. This doesn’t mean drab and boring everyday; definitely experiment with styles, but in small doses, much like neon (see post here). Instead of a completely studded blazer, try one with studs only on the shoulder. The key to stylish workday wear is to try styles or trends in a way that isn’t distracting.
