Small Mountain Town without Retirees

What are appropriate fashions for my age (57) for going to dinner, events, and for outdoor casual. I live in SW Colorado, a sunny place with a lot of outdoor activities.

Much depends on your taste and your figure.

Slacks are a must -- cotton twill for warmer weather and corduroy for winter.

If I lived in the West, I'd wear beautiful boots when the weather was right for it, with a longer skirt, a nice top, a conch belt, fabulous turquoise earrings and necklace, and a nice leather jacket.

Or I'd wear the boots with my slacks tucked in during cold weather, and a warm nylon quilted jacket.

For summer hiking and rodeos, I'd wear shorts if my legs permitted or lightweight slacks otherwise.

I'd also take that the longer-style skirts and pair them with sandals.

You may want a nice black, navy, dark brown or plum knit dress or knit skirt and top combination for more conservative events, such as a funeral.
