I feel like I've lost my style since I retired! Since I have no reason to dress up each day, I find myself wearing t shirts and jeans and no makeup. I'm not vain but I feel like I've let myself go and would love to hear from other retirees on how you have maintained your look.

I wear t shirts and jeans and no make up every single day. That has always been my look, and I am maintaining it!

I did update my haircut and get a tattoo....

I wear my nightgown. It saves doing a whole lot of laundry.
Jeans and knit tops. Looking for a couple of new sweaters for winter.

I find that one of the best things about retirement is not having to dress up every day and bothering with makeup.

Staying home for the day: Sweatpants or jeans and a t-shirt. No makeup.

Errands/Meeting friends: Slacks or jeans. Nice top or blouse. Makeup.

Pretty much itís what I did during summer vacations when I was still teaching.

I am pretty much like Zipline. I have some knit shorts and T shirts that I wear if I am staying home. Sometimes I do put on make up just because I donít want to feel like I am letting myself go! I donít wear a lot of make up normallyó- mascara, eye liner, foundation, and blush.

If I am going outside the comforts of homeó jeans, (shirts or skinny keg depending on season) nicer top and same make up routine.

I take a long walk every morning wearing exercise clothes. When I moved here, I added an afternoon walk most days so I rarely change out of them. At this time of year, that means I’m wearing shorts and a tank all day. Exercise clothes are fine for errands and about town.

If I have an “occasion,” like company coming tomorrow, I wear a casual dress or shorts/jeans and a t-shirt. I’ve “dressed up” (meaning looking like I used to when teaching) exactly once since I moved here 1.5 years ago.

I just bought a ton of new t-shirts on sale. I feel bad about all the beautiful sweaters and coats I never wear here. I wish I could bring myself to get rid of them so my closets aren’t so overstuffed.

I have never worn make-up (just a lot of sunscreen). I don’t feel like a slug. My exercise clothes are cute & fashionable—and I’m very comfortable.

Funny, I was just thinking itís time to do another purge. Like Catwoman and Zipline, if Iím staying home itís shorts and a tank or leggings and long shirt. Some days makeup, some days I let my face rest.

If Iím going out of the house for errands, Iíll,make sure nothings hanging out or gross. Lunch or visit with friends I will dress up.

But I find I still kept too many blouses and scarves after purge 1 and purge 2 of work clothes. Same with jewelry....I donít wear half of it any more.

I live in AZ, so most days shorts and a tee shirt. If I go out for coffee, lunch, shopping, etc. I will wear nicer shorts or a skirt. In the winter, joggers/loungers at home with a warmer top or cardi. Jeans if i go out. I always wore makeup when I was teaching, but rarely wear it now. If we go out to dinner or something like that, I will put on makeup.

I taught kindergarten for many years. My clothes were and still are easy to move in, casual, and washable (not dry clean only). I usually wear long shorts and a blouse/t shirt.

I no longer wear eye shadow, mascara, and blush. I do wear every day tinted moisturizer, eye liner, and a little lipstick. I feel like my skin is drier and that helps.

Shorts and tee shirts in the summer. Jeans or yoga pants and a sweater in the colder weather. Tinted moisturizer always . I have seasonal party clothes tucked away. Easy peasy!

This is something I need to work on. I go for weeks without putting on jewelry including my wedding rings.

I generally feel better when I dress knicker than T-shirts and shorts. If I leave the house I try to put on jeans and a nice shirt. I never wear makeup anymore and thatís ok with me.

I wear my Life is Good t-shirts and shorts during the day. I wear a nice top to go out. I only wear makeup when I go to the NICU, Bible study or out to eat. I have a dress code for the NICU.

Well, work out gear for most days. Summer...swimsuit and cover up for boating or beach. Shorts and t shirts otherwise or a summer dress. Winter? Workout gear, jeans and sweaters. Makeup? Light touch with lipstick, light foundation and blush. I use retinol from dermatologist and it really makes a huge difference, especially around eyes.
