Despite receiving a range of comments on a photo she posted wearing a sleeveless midi dress, 76-year-old style influencer Candace Cima remains resilient and advocates for changing perceptions of age-appropriate fashion.
The photo sparked a variety of comments, with one individual critiquing the dress’s fit and another expressing disapproval of showing too much skin at her age. However, Cima, a grandmother of eleven, embraced her age and the natural wrinkles that come with it.
In response to the criticism, Cima emphasized that having wrinkles at 76 is normal, and she sees no reason to feel ashamed about it. She even considered responding with humor, questioning whether she should also cover her face since she has wrinkles.
Cima launched her fashion blog in 2019 to address the lack of representation for older women in the fashion industry. She saw an opportunity to challenge outdated notions about dressing as one ages and encourages women to embrace their age proudly.
Despite the negative comments, Cima remains undeterred and offers guidance to her followers, emphasizing the positives of getting older. She believes that aging brings wisdom and encourages individuals to be proud of it, challenging societal expectations and promoting a more positive view of aging.
